This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate review.

Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

The cockpit is roomy and the seats are very supportive. High quality materials and attention to ergonomics creates a feel good factor even when you’re stuck in a jam on the M25.

Whether driving or being driven, E-Class owners appreciate the sumptuous and well-appointed interior. It’s roomy throughout and well-trimmed with real wood and all modern gadgets. And with an ultra-smooth ride and little road or engine noise. Plenty of space in the rear for adults, and no shortage of head or leg room. Best in its class for passenger comfort although new model is better still.
