Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 25 - 65 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate running costs aren't as bad as you may think. Although certain options are expensive, the base models are well equipped and the four-cylinder petrol and diesels are affordable to run. Servicing isn't cheap, but the cars should hold their value very well. Expect to trade in after three years for near half the car's original cost if it's a diesel.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate emissions are fairly competitive. Four cylinder diesels offer low CO2 output for such a large car and most of the E-Class estates will be these models - originally used by company car drivers.

Several owners of the previous E-Class estate suffered niggling problems with their cars which embarrassed Mercedes-Benz. This version has been thoroughly developed and should perform to a much higher standard.
