2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate - Click above for a high-res image gallery

Although the Frankfurt Motor Show is still a month away, images of the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate ("wagon" to us 'Mericans) have leaked out ahead of its official reveal in Germany.

The E-Class Estate joins the thoroughly revised sedan and coupe variants of Merc's mid-sizer and will undoubtedly grow both longer and wider than the outgoing five-door. Although the majority of the interior has been ported over from its siblings, the Estate's party-pieces are its folding rear seats that can be laid flat, a new cargo area nestled within the trunk and a set of rear-facing jump seats bound to make the kiddies car-sick on the Autobahn.

Mercedes' range of four-, six- and eight-cylinder powerplants will carry over from the other Es, including a 204-hp, turbocharged 1.8-liter and a 388-hp 5.5-liter V8. Both rear- and 4Matic all-wheel drive should be available when the E-Class Estate goes on sale in Europe late next month.

      Awesome! 3rd seat and nearly 400 HP! Just like my '91 Olds Custom Cruiser! Thanks MB!

      I'm not feeling the new e-class
      the interior is growing on me, but hte exteriror not so much
      the A6 wagon or 5-series wagon both look better IMO

      But, for my money the CTS Wagon wins over all of them - it looks hot as hell adn sexy as hell and I know a bunch of you all complained about the CTS commercials aiming at women, but that wagon is the best looking of all wagons in the automotive history, period.

        I own a 2008 A6 Avant.

        The CTS cannot compete. The interior is awful. The CTS wagon design was severely hurt by the requirement that it use the complete rear door from the sedan, including the window frame. I had a 9-3 sportcombi, and it had bad rear visibility. This is only worse.

        The C6 A6 Avant is the best wagon available in the US. The 535 and the E350 aren't bad, but I prefer the Audi. Plus I perceive the Audi to be a much better value than the BMW or the Mercedes.

      Nice wagon. Looks like you can fit a football in that gas flap.

      Boring. Confused. No sense of design line or direction. For this kinda money, I expect much better!

      I like the new E class. Looks good.

        My thoughts exactly. Anti-believer.

        Looks like a R-class wagon

      The mercs were the good girls with hearts of gold who have recently fallen victims to fashion.

      Damn, that's a good looking wagon. Any chance it'll be offered in E63 form like the last gen?
        • 5 Years Ago
        We can only hope, because fast wagons ROCK!!!

      Stunningly boring.

      Would be good to have some sort of bumper cover, like the Subaru Outback, on the wagons with the third row installed - I can see a lot of shoes landing on the bumper while getting in and out.

      That's a huge cargo space and the 3rd row wagon seats are back! I hope people stop buying M-Classes and G-Classes and start buying this. Like Anders says, it does look better than the sedan.

        3rd row jump seats never went away. There is an '05 E wagon in my family and they have never been used that I know of as there are no little kiddies.
        • 5 Years Ago
        I have a '98 E320 Wagon with the jump seats. Totally awesome ride, so much space!

      I haven't been too fond of Merc over the years, mainly for their aesthetic choices. I do, however, like the styling direction they've recently taken.

      I think they really hit the nail on the head with a traditional wagon though. It's so good to see one again. No SUVs, CUVs, Crossovers, Sport Crossovers, and what-have-you. Quit tryna re-invent the wheel folks. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I never heard anyone complaining about a wagon. We have all these behemoths on the road now, making visibility and MPG a nightmare. Then we try to remedy the problem buy building more fuel efficienct behemoths. K.I.S.S...Keep It Simple Stupid. The wagon has plenty of cargo space when needed, can accommodate a family, and isn't HUGE so visibility, safety, and MPG aren't big issues. I would love to see more OEMs go back to wagons.

      Pretty nice wagon. It looks a little like a slammed Pacifica. It'll be a nice platform for some AMG upgrades.
