Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
You won't feel cramped in the front of the Mercedes E-Class Estate, no matter how big you are, because the interior is wide and has loads of leg and head room – even if you go for the top-spec AMG Line Premium Plus trim, which has a panoramic sunroof fitted as standard.
You get lots of space for your odds and ends, too, including a roomy glovebox and the generously sized cubby under the front centre armrest. There are also two big cupholders.
The front passenger has four-way electric adjustment and adjustable lumbar support as standard and, like the driver, they get fully electric adjustment with memory settings if you go for the top-end AMG Line Premium Plus trim.
Click open the E-Class Estate's powered tailgate and wow: the boot is a massive 640 litres. It's a really useful square shape that you can fill with up to eight carry-on suitcases under the tonneau cover. That's the same tally as the 5 Series Touring and V90, but the E-Class still betters them. How's that? Well, it has a massive under-floor storage area that can swallow another case easily, taking the total to nine.
