From November Mercedes-Benz is launching the Estate as another highly distinctive of the E-Class family. Like the and Coupé, the Estate, which is now, combines unique with leadership in safety, quality and practicality. The new E-Class the debut of a number of technical which no other car in the world in category is able to offer from drowsiness detection to emergency braking when an is recognised as imminent, and from Highbeam Assist to the Active Naturally the Estate also all these innovations. Plus air with self-levelling at the rear as and unique new load compartment features.

The E-Class Estate is as the progenitor of the premium lifestyle segment more than 30 ago. Sin ce the launch of the first in 1977, more than one customers have discovered enthusiasm for this most way of driving a Mercedes luxury This success story is set to be by the fifth generation of the E-Class following up on the successful launch of the Only introduced in Europein 2009, the E‑Class Saloon had achieved world-wide market in its segment by May 2009. Some new E-Class models have now delivered to customers.

new Mercedes hallmarks combined E-Class styling features

The new immediately makes an athletic and but also effortlessly superior and impression. Its distinctive design is based on the new Mercedes style, had its debut in the S-Class and is now also in the C-Class. One of its main features is the between concave and taut which are delimited by dynamic and structured contours.

The side reveals many new elements, no doubt about the identity of the new The B- and C-pillars appear to merge the background thanks to glossy, trim panels, making the side window area like a single entity. leads to a taut arch from the filigree A-pillar to the roof line and the downward-tapering all resting on the athletic shoulder of the Estate. The intriguing design of the sill panels, which are understated in the centre but feature a light-catching contour towards the arches, accentuates the dramatic effect of the side aspect. is additionally emphasised by the muscular, line on the rear side in front of the rear wheel.

shaping the rear end, the designers took care to expression to the high practicality of the new They did this by emphasising lines, for example the band by the tail lights and the chromed handle. The new LED tail lights are on a two-piece design, and create a continuation of the side wall the tailgate. Both by day and night, distinctive design is a major factor for the E-Class Estate. is the largest estate car in the premium and it makes no secret of the fact.

top marks for load capacity and of operation

One particularly special of the load compartment management is the option of opening the standard-fit tailgate automatically by using the key or pressing the handle if the car needs to be from behind. The innovative system enables the rear backrests to be folded down the load compartment. Neither the restraints nor the rear-seat cushions to be adjusted beforehand in order to be to do this. The two backrest sections are and folded down by a cable creating a level loading As another useful feature, the left or right backrest or both together, can be folded This enables the rear unit to be used by passengers when long and bulky are being carried. The backrest can also be unlocked and folded from the side.

It is now also easier to use the combined luggage cover and retaining net, is attached at beltline level for the time, making it far simpler to and remove in various positions.

a load capacity of up to 1950 the new E-Class Estate (length/width/ 4895/1854/1471 millimetres) sets the in its class. Apart from the compartment capacity itself, dimensions of great practical such as the rear aperture, compartment sill and maximum compartment length demonstrate the of Mercedes-Benz when it comes to car engineering.

It is not only in the load that the generous dimensions of the model have been even further in many Two examples in the interior illustrate the elbow width in the rear has increased by 50 millimetres to 1505 Rear headroom with the tilting/sliding sunroof installed has improved by 50 millimetres to 1010 and is almost as generous as in versions no sunroof (1012 mm).

An load management system is as standard. For example, the automatically and closing EASY-PACK tailgate automatic raising of the load cover, or the EASY-PACK folding compartment floor. The latter increases the usable height of the compartment. It can be folded up and secured in positions. Standard equipment includes the EASY-PACK load cover with a load net. When extended, the compartment cover can be hooked electrically powered carriers on the When the tailgate is opened, the compartment cover is automatically to allow unobstructed loading and The optional folding bench for the load compartment is also in this vehicle segment.

nine airbags as standard, innovative driver assistance

Mercedes-Benz has consolidated its leadership in even further with the new Around one dozen new or modified assistance systems help to road accidents or at least the severity of the impact. These the standard ATTENTION ASSIST detection system, the optional PLUS proximity control and the PRE-SAFE® Brake, which is to initiate partial and full braking autonomously. For the first PRE-SAFE® is also able to use the information received from the sensors in the front bumper to the front seat belts at the moment before an accident as unavoidable, thereby reducing the exerted on the driver and front during the crash.

With airbags fitted as standard, belt tensioners and belt limiters, and NECK-PRO crash-responsive restraints for the driver and front the new E-Class offers an even extensive package of safety than its predecessor. The airbags, can deploy in a matter of milliseconds in the of an accident, include two adaptive for the driver and front passenger, a for the driver, two sidebags in the front-seat and two large windowbags which from the A-pillar to the C‑pillar a side impact. Pelvisbags for the occupants are also included for the time. These reduce the acting on the torso and pelvic during a lateral collision.

for the rear seat passengers can be installed as optional extras. As a safety innovation, Mercedes-Benz offers optional, self-adaptive force limiters for the rear. adjust to the size and weight of the and also become available for the with the introduction of the Estate.

automatic self-levelling at the rear as

Outstanding comfort on long in the Estate is ensured by the newly DIRECT CONTROL suspension, features the adaptive damping as standard. The likewise standard rear suspension sees to it the Estate always remains at the level, even when laden. The Estate’s suspension has also been adapted to the modified body geometry, slightly stiffer shock settings and torsion bar stabilisers, the Estate just as agile as the without having to make in terms of road roar and vibration characteristics.

Engines: reduction in fuel consumption and

The fuel consumption and emissions of the new have been considerably by new engines and numerous optimisation (aerodynamics, weight, energy reduced resistances). One prime is the E 250 CDI with an output of 150 kW and a peak of 500 Nm, whose fuel consumption is 5.7 litres per 100 km, with CO2 emissions of 150 g per km.

The line-up available for the new Estate at comprises five units between 125 kW/170 hp and 285 kW/388 hp. with a lower displacement, the new and engines generate more than their predecessors, impressing with fuel figures that were only found in the compact This was made possible by innovations, for example spray-guided injection for the E 350 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY petrol The four-cylinder CDI engines partly owe exceptional status to newly piezo injectors and two-stage All the powerplants meet the requirements of the EU5 standard.

Light, airy of spaciousness: the new full-glass roof

The new roof, now available as an optional on the Estate, provides a unique feeling. Compared with sliding sunroofs, it features a area which is twice as creating an exceptionally bright, and airy feeling in the interior. The roof consist of three a fixed glass section at the a movable glass cover in the and a fixed glass roof at the rear. Visually, the area of therefore stretches from the right back to the C-pillars.

The new Estate immediately makes an safe and practical impression. It is the estate car in the premium segment, and it no secret of the fact.

Its distinctive character is based on the new Mercedes which had its debut in the S-Class and is now represented in the C-Class and also the Saloon and Coupé. One of its characteristics is the between concave and taut which are delimited by dynamic and structured contours.

The performance of the and Coupé in the 2009 AutoBild Awards shows how well the lines of the E-Class have received: more than readers of the German motoring voted the four-door model the beautiful car in the world, and gave the model first place in the category.

The almost 50-man design team in Sindelfingen all model variants of the series in this was important to ensure a uniform design was achieved, and so at the same time optimum could be found to reconcile the priorities of family resemblance and character.

Front: new twin face, different bumpers on line

The twin headlamp has been one of the characteristic features of the E-Class for some 14 years. The new has remained true to this element, although in an updated the Mercedes designers have now the headlamps — which always previously been — rectangular. But whether or day, the distinctive shape of the is the most important distinguishing of the new E-Class generation.

Like the the bumper blends perfectly the car’s body, completing the overall impression of the front The dynamic lines that outwards, the distinctively shaped edges in the lower area and the broad air intake emphasise the effortlessly superior aura, it appear even wider and athletic than before.

and other styling elements enhance the profile of each of the lines, helping to accentuate unique character. Hence the line features a front with a sporty design, looks wider and more than that of the ELEGANCE on account of the large lower air featuring a black painted with diamond-shaped perforations of a sports car. This is reinforced by the LED daytime driving which are integrated in an attractively crossmember; these lights are equipment for the AVANTGARDE model, as is the Light System with headlamps.

Another feature makes for clear demarcation each of the lines is the chromed grille: on the AVANTGARDE model it a unique look on account of its high-gloss black louvres, the design used for the ELEGANCE stands out by virtue of its four painted in metallic silver. The model has a radiator grille three louvres in stone

Profile: wraparound lights as an distinguishing feature

The side reveals many new features, no doubt about the identity of the new The B and C-pillars appear to merge the background thanks to glossy, trim panels, making the side window area like a single unit. leads to an expressive arch from the filigree A-pillar to the roof line and the downward-tapering all resting on the athletic shoulder-line of the The high beltline is a further element of the new Mercedes design and reinforces the sense of safety by passengers.

The intriguing design of the sill panels, which are understated in the centre but feature a light-catching contour towards the arches, accentuates the dramatic effect of the side aspect. is additionally emphasised by the muscular, line on the rear side in front of the rear wheel. At the time this underlines the that it belongs to the same as the E-Class Saloon, which a similar style element on the wings which is reminiscent of its the Mercedes Ponton from

Rear end: emphasis of lines and a high degree of

When shaping the rear the Mercedes designers took to give expression to the high of the Estate. They did this by horizontal lines, for example the formed by the tail lights and the tailgate handle. The glass of the window covers the frame of the which once again the horizontal lines. The large hatch reaches over the bumper.

The new LED tail lights are on a two-piece design, and create a continuation of the side wall the tailgate — an additional feature and at the same time a recognition feature for the new E-Class The individual compartments of the tail are both illuminated and back-lit an ingenious technique, which to the sense of depth and makes the unmistakable even at night. The contour of the tail lights is of the dirt-deflecting ribs of the rear introduced on the S-Class back in

Interior: complete harmony and a sense of spaciousness

The design of the exterior is mirrored in the interior. with the luggage compartment, the have strived to achieve harmony. As a result, the colour has therefore been implemented throughout: the light roof underlines the impressive size of the compartment. The beltline, which has kept dark to contrast the interior colour, runs the whole interior. Viewed a distance, it gives the impression of a encircling the interior, which continues over the tailgate.

The compartment, along with the panels and the backs of the rear is lined with high-quality Depending on the equipment line, are small nets in the side behind the wheel housings, or stowage compartments behind the panels, which in some accommodate optional extras as a CD changer. The combined luggage and retaining net fitted as standard is in all three interior colours. The steel trim on the load sill is a stylish finishing which also helps to against damage when items.

The sense of spaciousness the Estate is both comfortable and at the same time. This impression of width is predominantly to the distinctive fine-wood or refined trim and the precisely integrated outlets. Thanks to the seamless of form and material between the panel and the door panels, the elements cocoon the driver and passenger. This welcome-home is achieved primarily thanks to the use of of natural origin — and leather. There are a total of handcrafted wood trims to from:

Standard appointments eucalyptus

ELEGANCE High-gloss burr walnut or optionally brown ash

AVANTGARDE High-gloss ash

Those who attach greater to sportiness and modernity can opt for high-quality in place of fine wood. In the version, Mercedes-Benz offers the with an embossed surface, the AVANTGARDE line features the of aluminium trim elements a brushed surface. The wood or appointments of the interior are made all the lavish, since the large elements on the instrument panel and the linings are accompanied by a second level on the Estate which enhances the front section of the console and the armrests in the doors. In to this, the controls for the automatic control system fitted as in the ELEGANCE and AVANTGARDE models are in fine wood.

Leather is the natural material used to the feeling of well-being in the interior. the standard version features a steering wheel and a shift/selector trimmed in fine nappa Leather seats are available as extras and, if the Exclusive is ordered, the seats, armrests and centre panels are trimmed in nappa leather.

Interior and functionality

Larger larger track width and external width — are the three most important behind the significant increase in in the interior of the Estate. It has even possible to improve the already dimensions of the preceding model in the rear and luggage compartments in respects. Two examples in the rear area illustrate this: the width in the rear has been by 51 millimetres to 1505 millimetres. headroom with the large sunroof installed has also by 50 millimetres to 1010 millimetres, and is as generous as in versions with no (1012 mm). Optionally the Estate can also be turned a seven-seater: a third row of seats two fold-out child seats is as an optional extra.

Under circumstances the luggage compartment is 695 but can be extended to a stately 1950 when carrying loads up to height by folding the rear backrests forward. In addition to the of the luggage compartment, other key reflecting Mercedes-Benz’s expertise it comes to the main practical of the Estate include the load sill (57.2 cm) and the through-load behind the front seats than two metres).

Enhanced forward-folding rear seat plus combined luggage and retaining net

One particularly special of the load compartment management is the option of opening the standard-fit automatically by using the ignition key or the handle if the car needs to be loaded behind. The innovative quickfold enables the rear 1/3:2/3-split backrests to be folded down from the load compartment by of handles on the D-pillar or via the rear by means of handles on the C-pillars. the head restraints nor the rear-seat need to be adjusted beforehand in to be able to do this and create a loading surface. As another feature, either the left or backrest sections, or both can be folded down. This the rear seat unit to be also by passengers even long and bulky items are carried.

It is now also much to use the combined luggage compartment and retaining net, which is as standard and is now attached at beltline for the first time, making it far to install and remove in various At the same time it no longer with the folding forward of the seat backrests.

There are six load securing points as along with retractable for bags on each side of the compartment. In addition, two further hooks are also incorporated the grab handles of the tailgate, so items of clothing can be hung up, for when the tailgate is open.

load space solutions: the system

Exemplary load is ensured thanks to the elaborate which features four components as standard:

EASY-PACKtailgate: the is operated electromechanically, making and unloading significantly easier. fifth door can be opened and at the touch of a button on the ignition key or a on the tailgate. In the upper third of its range the tailgate can be stopped at any opening angle by pressing the on the ignition key — a useful in garages with low ceilings, for The desired opening angle can be programmed in via the switch on the tailgate.

load compartment floor: the luggage compartment there is compartment with a capacity of up to 132 (with TIREFIT). Thanks to the load compartment floor, compartment can be used in a variety of ways by folding up the floor and it into different positions. In way, additional vital can be gained for the load height, for when delicate plants to be transported in an upright position. In the of the ELEGANCE and AVANTGARDE lines, the load level is also into practical compartments. In the version, this feature is as an optional extra in conjunction the EASY-PACK-load-securing kit.

EASY-PACKload cover: if the tailgate is opened, the compartment cover is automatically to allow unobstructed loading and When the luggage compartment is again, the load compartment automatically returns to its initial

EASY-PACKrear sill protector: a mat, retained in place the load compartment floor by of a magnetic strip, can be pulled out the aid of a handle to cover the stainless boot sill and bumper This helps to protect the sill against scratches and and also keeps clothes when loading. It is also practical when putting on ski for example, when on a winter This boot sill is available as an optional extra with the loading rails of the kit.

EASY-PACKfolding box: the folding box as standard has a special tailor-made in all versions with a subdivided load space level the folding boot floor. It can be out in a split second, enabling shopping loads to be stowed and transported safely.

In addition, is also another ingenious

EASY-PACKload-securing kit: several such as aluminium rails, rods and belt reels the luggage compartment to be divided up or diagonally. In this way, small and large objects can be practically and easy in the luggage At the same time, the load-securing kit is a way to prevent items of luggage, bags or other loads moving about. The optional kit also includes the boot protector. If individual items of the kit are not they can be stored away in a storage bag in the second load beneath the folding load floor.



In addition to established technologies as ABS, ESP® and Brake around a dozen new or improved Assistance systems in the E-Class towards avoiding traffic and reducing the severity of an accident. If the of a trailer coupling is chosen, the also comes equipped vehicle/trailer stabilisation as standard. additional ESPfunction can detect swaying oscillations of the car/trailer via the towing vehicle’s yaw rate By applying the brakes to the individual the driver is supported automatically to the situation.

In the new E-Class Estate, protection actually begins in the leading up to a possible accident to the Mercedes PRE-SAFE® invention, is specified as standard. If there is a of an accident, the system activates measures as a precaution, allowing the belts and airbags to deploy maximum effect in the event of a This early accident is possible because PRE-SAFE® is an synergy of active and passive It is linked to Brake Assist and the Stability Program (ESP®), sensors can detect typical driving situations and send the information to the electronic control within a matter of milliseconds. also uses these data.

Moreover, for the first the system also uses the provided by the short-range radar (optional extra) in the front to tension the front seat at the very last moment a recognized unavoidable collision, reducing the loads exerted on the and front passenger during a

Passive safety

One minute the bag is lying unobtrusively in the back of the boot. The next minute: — emergency braking and the poorly secured load is transformed into a dangerous which flies forwards, the safety of the passengers. Very few are aware of the immense forces are created in the event of emergency and are then brought to bear in an For example: in an accident at 55 km/h, a weighing 20 kg will strike the of the rear seats with a equivalent to a weight of more 600 kg. This is precisely why the issue of retention is of vital importance in the of estates, given their luggage compartments and diverse use as and family vehicles. It is also why the Mercedes engineers focused attention on this specific when developing the new E-Class

A few examples:

The combined luggage and retaining net, which is attached to the vehicle body, as standard. The net can be attached both the first as well as the second row of Irrespective of how far it is pulled out, an lock with ratchet helps to ensure that no can come through into the area.

Mercedes-Benz has made the seat backrests significantly stable than is required by the legislation.

With the new PRE-SAFEBrake (optional extra), the effects of a packed luggage compartment can be in the event of a registrated emergency If the system initiates autonomous braking with around 40 of maximum braking power, the will be automatically supported the seat backrest and as such be in a less dangerous position for the in the event of a crash.

Items can be down in the luggage compartment the six lashing eyelets which are as standard. The folding load floor and EASY-PACKload management also enable objects to be comfortably.

Materials: 78 percent of all are made from high-strength

Compared to the previous model the Mercedes engineers have the deformation zones substantially in the and rear sections of the new E-Class as well as improving the energy The front crumple zone has independently-acting impact levels, that the forces can be distributed a wide area while the passenger cell.

The occupant proves to be almost completely to deformation in front, rear or collisions or when overturning. can thus be assured of an intact even when the speed of is high.

Multi-piece longitudinal and a solid cross member of high-grade steel make up the important components of the rear-end An extruded aluminium hat-section between the rear centre and the spare wheel well to stiffen the structure. Despite the through-loading width, it has been to improve rigidity in the rear even further compared the preceding model. This has helped by the spare wheel made of steel, additional struts beneath the load floor and rear longitudinal with closed cross throughout. The steel floor of the wheel well has been with an additional metal for optimum load bearing. for a Mercedes-Benz car, the fuel is located in a protected position the rear seats, in other ahead of the rear axle therefore, outside of the impact

More so than ever Mercedes-Benz has given preference to steel alloys for the body because they offer strength whilst minimising and, therefore, are essential for the strict safety and durability More than two thirds of all the panels for the new E-Class Estate are from these grades of Resistance against distortion of the body has been improved by 50 percent compared with the model. Mercedes-Benz’s intelligent concept also involves the targeted use of aluminium and plastic, of which help to save above all. Hence the end, bonnet, front and transmission tunnel brace of the new are made from aluminium.

protection: Active Bonnet as

The protection of those road who are most at risk has always a top priority during the development of passenger cars. Smooth-surfaced energy-absorbing bumpers, flush-mounted handles, laminated-glass windscreens, exterior mirrors and recessed wipers are pedestrian-protection measures have been features of models for many years.

A new to the protection programme available as is the Active Bonnet, which the deformation area, reducing the of injury to pedestrians. Upon with a pedestrian, the sensors information to the electronic control which, in turn, activates two in the hinges instantaneously. These release the arresters so that the section of the bonnet is pushed by 50 millimetres by means of spring

Restraint systems: nine as standard

With nine fitted as standard, not to mention seat-belt tensioners and belt-force as well as NECK-PRO crash-responsive restraints for the driver and front the new E-Class Estate offers an more extensive package of equipment than its predecessor. The which can deploy in a matter of in the event of an accident, include two airbags for the driver and front a kneebag for the driver, two sidebags in the backrests and two large windowbags extend from the A-pillar to the during a side impact. For the time, pelvisbags are included as for front seat passengers, in the event of a side collision can to reduce loads in the pelvic Sidebags are also available for passengers as an optional extra.

belt-force limiters in the rear

A safety innovation: Mercedes-Benz is adaptive belt-force limiters for the seats as an option for the first These adapt to the size of automatically. The system detects the rear seat passenger is or small as soon as the seat is put on, based on the length of the pulled-out belt, and adapts its protective accordingly. The maximum restraint is activated immediately if the rear is large in size. In the case of occupants, the force exerted by the is set to a lower level.

In addition to the child seat attachment integrated child seats are available for the new Estate. They are for children from 22 months up to 12 of age. If needed, the seat can simply be pulled out from the seat bench by means of a and locked into a raised Side head restraints the effect of the integrated child and provide head protection in the of a side collision. They are in place on the mounting supports of the head restraints.

The new four-cylinder engine in the E 250 CDIBlueEFFICIENCY for example is that the plans have out successfully: with an output of 150 hp, a peak torque of 500 Nm and a displacement of 2.2 it develops around seven more power and delivers 25 more torque than the V6 diesel engine with a of three litres in the E 280 CDI, consuming around 21 percent fuel. Consuming 5.7 litres per 100 (NEDC combined figure), it is more economical than estates in this category.

The CO2 emissions figure for the new four-cylinder models is 150 grams per kilometre up to 21 percent lower than the achieved by the previous CDImodels. As carbon dioxide emissions, the for the new E-Class have also a further major step the future when it comes to gas emissions: all of the powerplants meet the of the EU 5 standard, whose limits are up to 80 more stringent than in previous standards.

Diesel new four-cylinder, optimised six-cylinder

At the of market launch of the Estate, the developed CDI four-cylinderis available in two with different outputs: 125 hp and also 150 kW/ 204 hp. Their respective consumption and CO2 emission figures are 5.7 per 100 kilometres and 150 grams per kilometre consumption in NEDC cycle). In the quarter of 2010, the E 200 CDIproducing 100 hp will become available.

The new are both powerful and responsive. feature high pulling and display an exemplary smoothness of which is impressive for a four-cylinder Furthermore, their exceptional is reflected in the performance figures: the E 250 takes 7.8 seconds to accelerate 0 to 100 km/h. The E 220 CDIBlueEFFICIENCY, which 125 kW/170 hp, can top the 100 km/h mark a standing start in 8.8 seconds.

series of four-cylinder engines Mercedes-Benz introducing fourth-generation direct injection into production. One of its hallmarks is a 400-bar in the maximum rail pressure to bar, newly developed injectors, and also the debut of turbocharging in a standard-production diesel for passenger cars at Mercedes-Benz. The module for the new two-stage turbocharger of a small high-pressure (HP) and a large low-pressure (LP) These are connected in series, and has a turbine and a compressor driven by turbine. This means the optimum charge pressure can be up at low engine revs.

The V6 diesel for the new E-Class is also one of the most compression-ignition units on the world It offers substantially greater comfort and driving enjoyment other engines thanks to the torque of 540 Nm alone, which is between 1600 and 2400 enabling outstanding agility accelerating from rest and flexibility when accelerating in any The E 350 CDIBlueEFFICIENCY (170 kW/231 hp) from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.2 seconds.

the higher output, fuel has been reduced to 7.0 to 7.3 litres per 100 (NEDC combined figure), to 185 — 192 grams of CO2 per kilometre. The seven-speed automatic transmission is as standard for the E 350 CDIBlueEFFICIENCY model. The engineers have gone to lengths to optimise the technology at the of the V6 diesel engine, reducing the from 17.7 to 15.5 and the turbocharger with a more EGRcooling zone, switchable duct, ceramic glow modified injection nozzles and air ducting.

Petrol engines: CGI and optimised eight-cylinder

CGIappears at the end of the designation of the four- and six-cylinder for the new E-Class, signifying that uses direct petrol for these powerplants — a which allows further when it comes to reducing consumption.

Compared to conventional injection, direct fuel allows higher compression therefore, improved thermodynamic saving motorists money at the the new four-cylinder direct-injection powerplants for the consume up to 18 percent less than the comparable engines in the previous model. In the E 250 CGIBlueEFFICIENCY (150 kW/ 204 hp), Mercedes-Benz has the previous V6 2.5-litre engine a four-cylinder 1.8-litre unit yet manages to increase torque by 26 percent. This result a further Mercedes strategy for the the use of turbochargers in small-displacement engines.Mercedes-Benz the E 250 CGIBlueEFFICIENCY model with a automatic transmission, while the E 200 model features a six-speed transmission and the ECO start/stop function, shuts off the engine automatically it is idling, thus making a contribution towards saving

The E 350 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY model is equipped the world’s first petrol to feature spray-guided combustion. The powerplant develops 215 kW/292 hp and a peak torque of 365 Nm from rpm. The key benefit of the six-cylinder is delivered in stratified-charge mode, the powerplant operates with a degree of excess air and, extremely fuel-efficiently. Thanks to the engine technology, fuel is reduced to between 8.6 and 8.9 litres per 100 (NEDC combined figure), is up to one litre per 100 kilometres less the figure achieved by the predecessor. more, the highly economical and compatible CGIpowerplant provides a driving experience: it takes the E 350 model just 7.0 seconds to from 0 to 100 km/h. The E 350 4MATIC is in a version producing kW/272 hp, in with all-wheel drive. Its V6 features port injection.

The unit in the E 500 model — the powerplant in the new generation of Mercedes-Benz V — incorporates an extensive package to create a blend of output and torque yield exemplary refinement and effortlessly agility. The extent of the powerplant’s is highlighted by the performance figures for the new E-Class model, which is with the 7G-TRONIC 7-speed transmission as standard: 0 to 100 km/h in 5.4

Mercedes engineers use an intelligent concept, achieving a level of that is a major factor the excellent torque and output An optimum supply of fresh for the cylinders is assured thanks to technology and, above continuously variable and continuous and exhaust camshaft adjustment. The are always opened at precisely the moment in any driving situation, improving the gas cycle in the combustion and reducing energy losses.

and suspension

The newly developed CONTROL suspension with amplitude-dependent damping system in the new helps to ensure a high of long-distance comfort in the Estate In addition, the standard self-levelling suspension ensures that the always remains at the same even when fully The suspension setup of the Estate has been adapted to suit the body geometry, with stiffer shock absorber and torsion bar stabilisers. Without any in road roar and tyre characteristics, this makes the as agile as the Saloon.

The DIRECT shock absorber system the damping forces automatically driving normally with low impulses, and increases the forces up to the as required when cornering at or performing evasive manoeuvres.It is hydromechanical and requires no sensors or The core components are a bypass in the shock absorber’s piston pin and a piston moving within a oil chamber. When linear of the shock absorber is low, the piston forces oil through the channel to produce a significantly damping force at the actual valve. The resulting, softer absorber characteristic translates a high level of ride If the excitation of the shock absorber is the control piston moves to its position so that oil ceases through the bypass duct, that the full damping is available.

In the interests of favourable kinematics, superior vibrational and improved safety, the lower of the the three-link front suspension McPherson struts consists of two elements which act as torque and struts. In addition to precise location, this design has the advantage of compensating vibrations by tyre imbalances or fluctuating forces better than wishbones. It also provides deformation paths in the event of a collision. The third front-axle is the track rod which connects the installed steering gear to the

In order to further optimise comfort, the Mercedes experts chosen a starkly upright for the spring struts so as to reduce the acting on the torque strut As a consequence, it was possible to reduce the of the newly developed three-phase bearings, which has a positive on the chassis’ tyre/road contact and rolling characteristics for example driving over expansion running across the road. The use of aluminium and steel reduces the of the front axle by twelve compared to the previous model. The torque struts and the cross are made of aluminium.

High-strength for axle, steering, engine and

The front-axle components, steering engine and transmission are pre-mounted on a subframe which is bolted to the body’s side members, it a key component in the front crash of the new E-Class: in the event of a frontal the subframe forms a separate path along which the energy is absorbed. The stiffness at the points between the subframe and the where load is transferred as a of the forces and vibrations produced by the and suspension has been increased all of which translates into agile and more precise

Steering: variable ratio for safety and agile handling

equipment for the four-cylinder models of the new Estate includes rack-and-pinion steering with a variable This is more indirect in the position compared to the predecessor therefore, helps to improve at high straight-line speeds. when the steering wheel exceeds around 100 degrees, the becomes more direct, helps to reduce the number of wheel turns required to or manoeuvre.

The V6 and V8 models are even responsive thanks to the Direct-Steer adopted from the SL-Class and on the four-cylinder models as an optional The variable rack ratio more directly as soon as the reaches six degrees. When on twisting country roads, at medium speed and with steering angles, less effort is therefore required. The responds more spontaneously and is manoeuvrable and more agile. is particularly noticeable and useful manoeuvring. At the same time, the setting of the power steering (parameter setting) requires steering effort. The indirect in the central position, on the other ensures excellent straight-line and stability when driving at on the motorway.

A further highlight is the power pump featuring an electrically

solenoid valve which a bypass opening and, as a allows metering of the oil quantity in with requirements. This reduces the pressure and oil quantity driving straight ahead the steering pump operates a substantially reduced output consequently, helps to save As previously, the E-Class Estate is with an individually adjustable column with a height range of +/- 25 millimetres and a reach range of 60 millimetres as such, in respect the Estate significantly the competition in this market A fully electrically adjustable wheel

is included if the optional package is ordered.

Rear self-levelling air suspension as standard

In the of greater comfort and agility, the independent suspension so successful for than 25 years was re-engineered for use in the new Modifications included the front of the axle housing, which is now by the vehicle body over a area. This reduces the transmitted into the passenger a comfort feature that is noticeable when crossing joints in the road surface. In with the lightweight-design concept at the of the new E-Class series, wheel components such as struts, hub and the metal sections of the elastomer are largely made of aluminium. The subframe is made of high-strength

The E-Class Estate comes full load-bearing air suspension an automatic self-levelling system as This avoids having to the spring and rebound travel and to ensure comfortable vibration when fully loaded. In full ground clearance is ensured at all times.

Air suspension: with continuously adaptive system

All-round air suspension is as an option for the six-cylinder engine of the Estate, and comes as standard on the V8 The AIRMATIC air suspension is combined an electronically controlled damping that adapts the damper with continuously variable and individually for each wheel.

A of seven sensors monitor the situation and the position of the body, their information to an electronic unit, which also information concerning road steering wheel angle, torque and engine torque, this data to calculate the shock-absorber characteristics. The system the damping force for each individually, depending on the current conditions and driving situation. driving normally, soft settings are also selected if the surface is poor. This offers the E-Class occupants comfort without impairing the directional stability, road or handling safety. With a agile driving style, the becomes tauter, thereby the driver’s need for a more ride.

The driver can pre-program the vehicle characteristics at the push of a on the dashboard. There are two modes to from: Comfort or Sport. In mode, the hydraulic forces of the absorbers are increased so as to allow better directional stability and adhesion at high speeds.The suspension configuration is also available in Comfort mode for driving conditions.

AVANTGARDE with lowered body

As as the standard-fit DIRECT CONTROL with steel springs and damping system, Mercedes-Benz sports-tuned suspension with anti-roll bars and specially 17-inch light-alloy wheels for the line. If this suspension also available as an optional for the other model variants, is the body is lowered by 15 millimetres.

If the AMG packageis ordered, the AVANTGARDE is also equipped with wheels, larger brakes and front brake discs.

with Hill-Start assist and drying function

With the BRAKE, the new E-Class offers an braking system incorporating assistance functions for even comfort and safety. One example of is the practical HOLD function: the E-Class has been braked to a briefly pressing the brake a little further is all that is to activate this function. The car is held by the brakes, even if the foot comes off the brake In this way, and precisely in the of vehicles with automatic the ADAPTIVE BRAKE prevents the car rolling forwards when at traffic lights or stuck in traffic and from rolling when facing up a slope. The function is deactivated automatically the car moves off.

If the driver’s moves abruptly from the before an emergency stop, the system increases the pressure in the lines and brings the pads contact with the brake so that maximum braking is available as soon as the driver the brake pedal. This of the brakes allows the system to the standard-fit Brake Assist

ADAPTIVE BRAKE also has benefits in the wet: the system applies the brakes at regular to wipe the film of water the brake discs and ensure the brakes are able to perform at peak. This automatic drying function is always when the windscreen wipers of the have been operating for a length of time. The finely brake pulses are imperceptible to the

Finally, the ADAPTIVE BRAKE the driver with hill If the sensors detect that the is stopped on an uphill slope, a function is activated automatically, a constant brake pressure for a period. The driver therefore has time to move their from the brake pedal to the without the vehicle rolling — particularly convenient in the of Estates with manual

Even more effective discs and brake booster

front and rear brake provide an ideal technical for ensuring reliable deceleration in any situation. The front and rear measure up to 344 millimetres and 320 millimetres in respectively, depending on the engine For brake cooling, the Mercedes have developed two-section cover plates which been tested in the wind Whilst driving, they the cool air from the underbody the wheel arches and, to the brake discs.

Control electronics for more safety

brakes, acceleration skid Brake Assist and the Electronic Program are all of course fitted as to all E-Class models. If the vehicle is with a trailer coupling, vehicle/trailer stabilisation is activated, detects dangerous oscillating of the trailer and re-stabilises it automatically by precisely measured brake to the front wheels of the towing If the danger is even more the system applies the brakes to the car’s speed automatically reducing the engine torque.

As on the model, the trailer coupling and has a ball head that not need to be fitted or removed. It away beneath the body with its electrical socket, so it is concealed from sight not in use. The Estate has a maximum load of up to 2100 kilograms — a benchmark value for model class.

The Electronic Program monitors the air pressure in the too, and warns the driver if is a sudden loss of pressure. To end, the system continuously the rotational wheel speeds, mainly depend on the vehicle vehicle load and tyre control unit also other dynamic ESP®sensor such as the lateral acceleration, yaw and wheel torque, to help it tyre pressure loss. The is therefore able to detect any and informs the driver accordingly via the display.

In order to ensure mobility in the event of a flat Mercedes-Benz offers the option of tyres. These are available in R 17 format and feature self-supporting enabling Mercedes customers to driving, even after a flat tyre, for up to 50 kilometres at 80 depending on the

vehicle load.

and tyres: 7.5 J x 16 light-alloy wheels 225/55 R 16 tyres as standard

The of wheels and tyres for the new E-Class offers a wealth of personalisation for the Estate. Mercedes customers a choice of eleven wheel and combinations in 16, 17 or 18-inch format. All models are fitted as standard 225/55 R 16 tyres and 7.5 J x 16 light-alloy The top-of-the-range E 500 model comes 17-inch light-alloy wheels with 245/45 R 17 tyres as

4MATIC: new all-wheel drive saves up to 0.7 litres of fuel per 100

For the E-Class Estate, Mercedes-Benz a new generation of the 4MATIC all-wheel system, which is even efficient, even lighter and more compact than the installed all-wheel-drive technology. advantages over the outgoing are evident in the improved traction and fuel consumption.

From the quarter of 2010, two models be available with all-wheel the E 350 4MATIC with a six-cylinder developing 200 kW/272 hp consumes litres of premium unleaded per 100 kilometres (provisional NEDC figure), making it 0.7 litres per 100 more economical than In the case of the E 350 CDI 4MATICmodel (170 hp), the fuel saving to the comparable predecessor model to 0.7 litres per 100 kilometres. The V6 direct-injection engine posts a fuel figure of 7.6 litres per 100 kilometres NEDC combined figures).

The 4MATIC is a Mercedes development only adds 50 to 70 kilograms of weight (depending on model) and a compact design that up very little space in the case area. It can therefore be without any modifications to the body and impeding the front-passenger footwell. more, the compact design for lower noise and vibration

The permanent all-wheel drive which works in tandem the standard-fit Electronic Stability (ESP®), really comes its own in poor weather conditions as rain, snow or black ice as as when starting off, cornering at speed or driving on road surfaces. In these the electronically controlled 4MATIC greatly enhances traction, stability and road adhesion.

exemplary handling qualities go in hand with hallmark comfort thanks on the one hand to the damper control and on the other to the meticulous spring and damper for the all-wheel drive models, largely replicates that for the models. A further comfort-related of the 4MATIC is the omission of conventional locks which, as other drive passenger cars affect steerability and handling.

Transfer case integrated in automatic transmission

Unlike the transfer case is now integrated in the 7G-TRONIC transmission. The transfer consists of a planetary centre and two bevel gears, which the side output to the front The centre differential produces the defined torque distribution the front and rear axles 45 to 55 percent (previously 40 to 60 percent) which is noticeable above all in the directional stability, road and traction compared to the outgoing

A further highlight of the new powertrain is the compact side output to the axle gear, which is on a one-stage concept, meaning a complete gear stage can be compared to the previous 4MATIC system. Furthermore, the rear joint on the propshaft is integrated in the take-off output gear. space-saving design allows the to the front axle to be routed close to the transmission without to make modifications to the bodyshell.

The higher efficiency of the 4MATIC system and the resulting lower consumption compared to the predecessor is largely down to the omission of the stage for the transfer case take-off and an improved oil supply, the integral design means the transmission and the transfer case the same oil circuit.

Multiple-disc with lock between the and rear axles

The new double-disc located on the centre differential a basic locking torque of 50 Nm between the front and rear In this system, a cup spring the clutch pack with a force. If the wheels on one of the two axles to spin, the relative movement of the causes a friction torque to be from the faster-turning axle to its counterpart.

This principle of torque displacement between the and rear axles improves the directional stability and road of the 4MATIC models. The traction provided by the double-disc clutch is noticeable when the friction between the tyres and the road is since the clutch locks the mechanically during moderate if the friction coefficient between the and the road is less than = 0.3 (more or less equivalent to The wheels are prevented from in such a way as to avoid what is as the polishing effect, which to a reduction in the friction coefficient. advantage of the double-disc clutch is the load-change characteristics of the 4MATIC

Electronic traction system in of differential locks

4MATIC the Electronic Traction System an additional component of the Electronic Program (ESP®), in place of differential locks. It has been and now provides an even higher of comfort and even better 4ETS is activated automatically one or more wheels lose on the road. In this event, brakes these wheels and individually, thus increasing the torque at the wheels offering traction at the same time. millisecond-fast braking pulses nearly the same effect as differential locks. In addition, the automatic braking pulses are on the speed of the car.


have been estate bearing the Mercedes star for than 50 years now. Yet the vehicles were not produced in rather they were the of specialist body manufacturers: the 170 V was by Lueg (Bochum) from as a station wagon, while at the end of the Binz (Lorch) produced an version of the classic Mercedes 300 These were followed by of the Ponton, Fintail and the Stroke/8 by Binz and Miesen respectively).

the Stuttgartengineers and designers are not totally with the practical body featuring large load Initially, Mercedes-Benz itself the small fintail model of the manufacturer IMAas an estate, the name Universal. And the estate of the Stroke/8, which was developed up to production stage, already what an attractive station should look like. the estate was not being produced at point.

S 123: first from Mercedes-Benz

Nevertheless, research conducted by Mercedes in the highlighted the fact that was significant demand for a sporty, five-door vehicle for recreational and use, and in 1975 the executive therefore gave the project the light. However, the new Mercedes was not to be a Kombi. The names Universal and Wagon were not approved Finally the decision was made the new variant was to be designated with the T, which stood for Tourism and Only the internal series still hinted at the term Wagon: to this day the Estate bears the letter S as a prefix to the number.

Series production of the S 123 model commenced in April at the Bremenfactory. The rear end, its extended roof, and the low load sill, turned the new model into a true sensation of even when the standard for the driver and up to four passengers are the station wagon still had for a load of 523 litres up to the edge of the With the rear seat folded down, the load even swallowed loads of 879 up to the edge of the windows.

The design provided for several optional in the layout of the interior. As such, the seat bench could be with an asymmetrical divide as an extra. If required, either one or of the backrest could then be down. Additional folding were also available could be stored in the luggage floor and of course were An automatic hydropneumatic self-levelling helped to ensure a high of ride comfort.

The Estate was in the Bremenfactory, while only the exhibited at the International Motor and the first 100 series-produced vehicles in Sindelfingen. While 70 employees the Bremenfactory came to Sindelfingenfor training on production of the new Estate at the same time 40 specialists the regular plant at which the W 123 was made preparations to build the wagon in North Germany. The quality of the S 123, which was often praised, demonstrates this time-consuming preparatory was worthwhile.

S 124: a best-seller a high standard of safety

The of the 124 series is characterised by a previously of variety of models, body and innovations. An important step in respect came with the of the S 124 Estate in September 1985 at the Motor Show in Frankfurt. second generation of the sporty Estate from Mercedes-Benz was the same as the Saloons in technical and terms: apart from the shape of the rear end, the roof and the changes this in, there were no differences in the The Estates featured an independent rear suspension, now combined as with hydropneumatic self-levelling, as as a shock absorber strut front suspension.

The designers incorporated the safety standards in the Saloons into the Estates possible. The development of the rear overhang in particular — an critical area in estate — became the focal for the latest developments in safety One example is the fuel tank, in the case of the Estates is suspended the vehicle floor for design It has a special shape, with side areas on the upper of the tank and near the vehicle This ensures that in the of a rear-end collision, the tank is away in a downwards direction due to deformation and in the process is held by straps, without hitting the surface.

S 210: twin-headlamp and a large luggage compartment

The new Estate followed on from the in May 1996. As with its predecessor, the adopted the characteristic design of the Saloon. The S 210 was characterised by a particularly and spacious interior, providing comfort and movement for the passengers, at the same time increasing the compartment by a further 70 litres.

The made use of all of the technical innovations were also the distinguishing of the E-Class Saloon. In addition, the paid particular attention to safety. Here they a completely new bodyshell structure, among other things was to protect the tank in the event of a collision by means of a heavily structure. The supports for the rear backrests and their locking and anchorage points were strengthened. S 211: dynamic and practical details In 2002, one after the Saloon, Mercedes-Benz the E-Class Estate. The S 211 was particularly related in design terms to the of the series.

Aesthetically, too, the new was every bit a match for the Saloon. In the the designers created an especially combination of generous load and dynamic elegance.

In addition to the innovations adopted from the the Estate featured other developed specifically for the S 211. included the EASY-PACK system a new, asymmetrically divided seat bench that easily be folded forward to a level loading area in the Also available as an optional was the hydraulically driven EASY-PACK compartment floor, which be extended 40 centimetres out of the rear of the to facilitate the loading and unloading of objects.
