Mercedes-Benz has recently unveiled the highly anticipated 2024 E-Class Estate, the wagon version of its 10th-generation E-Class sedan. While the sedan was revealed earlier this year, the wagon variant has finally made its debut, showcasing similar styling and futuristic technology. However, it remains uncertain whether the E-Class Estate will be available in the American market.

Like its sedan counterpart, the E-Class wagon is built on Mercedes-Benz’s rear-drive architecture, which is also utilized in the C- and S-Class sedans. The wagon features a refreshed front fascia to align with the brand’s other models. However, due to its elongated rear end, the wagon possesses a slightly higher drag coefficient of 0.26, compared to the sedan’s 0.23 cd.

The 2024 E-Class wagon boasts an increased width of 1.1 inches compared to its predecessor, accompanied by a longer wheelbase of 0.86 inches. These enhancements result in improved rear occupant space and enhanced cargo capacity, which is the wagon’s primary selling point. With the rear seats folded, the wagon offers a generous cargo space of up to 64.6 cubic feet. Additionally, to support the additional weight, the rear of the E-Class Estate comes equipped with standard air suspension.

Technological features abound within the E-Class Estate, with one of the highlights being the optional “MBUX Superscreen.” This impressive display integrates a digital gauge cluster, a central infotainment screen, and a passenger screen, all housed under one expansive piece of glass. Notably, the Superscreen also includes a selfie camera for the driver, cleverly designed to function with various third-party apps such as Zoom and TikTok. Other available third-party applications include Angry Birds, Webex, the podcast app Pocket Casts, and the web browser Vivaldi.

In terms of powertrain options, the 2024 E-Class wagon offers three choices upon its release, including a plug-in hybrid variant. The base engine, found in the E200, is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that delivers 204 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. The E220d features a similarly sized diesel engine, producing 197 horsepower and 324 lb-ft of torque. However, the most enticing option is the hybrid powertrain, which combines the base gasoline engine with an integrated starter-generator (ISG) positioned between the motor and transmission. This hybrid configuration generates a total output of 208 horsepower and an impressive 405 lb-ft of torque.

Overall, the 2024 E-Class wagon presents an enticing package for wagon enthusiasts, combining stylish design elements, ample cargo space, advanced technology, and a choice of powerful and efficient powertrains. While its availability in the American market remains uncertain, the E-Class Estate undoubtedly raises the bar for luxury wagons in terms of both functionality and innovation.

The new E-Class wagon (estate) will go on sale in Europe this fall. It’s very well possible that the new 2024 E-Class wagon will make it to the USA in the form of an all-terrain version. However, there has not been any confirmation of us getting it on this side of the pond yet.
