Mercedes E-Class Estate line-up topped by £78,835 PHEV Car News

Mercedes has continued the digital-driven overhaul of its model interiors with the E-Class Estate. It has the latest, third generation of the firm’s MBUX infotainment system with augmented reality, voice assistant and online music streaming. 

Also included is a suite of digital apps, such as TikTok, Angry Birds and Zoom. A sophisticated AI system can learn the driver’s habits and routines, suggesting specific functions it thinks the driver might use. 

Level-four autonomous driving tech also comes in the form of an optional driverless valet parking function (previously an S-Class exclusive) in markets such as Germany, where the law permits it.

Engine outputs range from 194bhp to 375bhp and all are mated as standard to a nine-speed automatic gearbox. 

They are also all paired with a gearbox-integrated starter motor, which adds a boost in power and torque, with improved efficiency and fuel savings when coasting. 

The plug-in hybrid variant is also available from launch and features a 24.1kWh battery that gives up to 62 miles of electric-only range. 

The estate gains single-chamber air suspension at the rear as standard for improved ride comfort, with the firm’s Airmatic system with adjustable damping optionally available. The car can tow up to 2.1 tonnes.
