Mercedes-Benz has revealed that they will be taking a sportier direction with the launch of the new 2017 E-class wagon.
One of the hallmarks of the Mercedes Benz E-class wagon has been class leading spaciousness while also offering the ability to carry a lot of stuff. The upcoming version will be largely based on the current generation Mercedes E-class, which is regarded as the best in the executive segment right now. One of the advantages for the E-class wagon has been spaciousness and focus on comfort.
These traits are expected to remain in the upcoming 2017 Mercedes E-class wagon, but the German chains have claimed that the vehicle will try to offer sportier looks than ever before. In the past, the E-class wagon has been largely similar to the sedan in terms of styling and the 2017 edition seems to be no different. As a major advantage, the 2017 E-class wagon will be able to boast seven seater capacity. The luxury brand has added a third row of seating to increase the capacity, although the seats can be folded to take a significant amount of luggage as well.
Mercedes makes it easier for users to drop down the third row of seats at the touch of a button. The sales and marketing chief at Mercedes, Ola Kallenius, claimed that the new wagon will offer a new dynamic proposition to buyers as well as retaining the strong aspects of the Mercedes-Benz brand. The rear will receive a significant revamp with dinner taillights, new reflectors, spoiler with a LED brake lights, and a new tailgate handle. The 2017 Mercedes E-class wagon will be sold in luxury or sport variants with each of them offering a different set of features as the name suggests.
There are only a couple of options with regard to the engine availability on the E-class wagon. The 2017 Mercedes E-class wagon will be powered by a 3.0-liter, V-6 engine with twin turbos. It comes out with a whopping 329 bhp. For those with one eye on the fuel efficiency and less carbon emissions, the 2.0-liter engine with four cylinders should just be perfect. It develops an extremely healthy 241 bhp. However, both models will be limited to a maximum top speed of 130 mph – slower than the sedan. Mercedes has confirmed that the vehicle will arrive in the US from next year.
