2017 Mercedes-Benz E400 4Matic Wagon Revealed

Mercedes-AMG E43 Wagon not coming to the U.S.

If you had to guess the model in Mercedes' catalog that holds the distinction of attracting the most affluent customers, you would probably pick the big-bucks S-Class sedan. In reality, Mercedes has long asserted the subtle E-Class wagon claims the wealthiest buyers, proving popular in prosperous markets like California, New York, New Jersey, Florida, and Massachusetts. Now, those moneyed individuals can rattle their diamond-encrusted jewelry in celebration, as the German automaker announced the next-generation of five-door E-Class.

As expected, the new E400 4Matic Wagon continues with Mercedes' svelte and handsomely curvaceous design language. The E-Class Wagon wears a rakish profile, building on the clean curvesof the regular four-door sedan. The wheelbase is the same as the 115.7-inch sedan, but packs a wallopof additional interior volume out back. There's no official word on total cargo volume just yet, but we would imagine it is similar to the 57.4 cubic feet available in the previous E-Class wagon. The uber-cool rear-facing third-row seats still fold flat to accommodate more cargo, and the wagon still comes standard with self-leveling rear suspension to keep the car stable and functional with a loaded rear compartment.

Underneath this attractive skin beats a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 engine, pumping out 329 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque. This power is routed to all four wheels through a standard 4Matic all-wheel-drive system and a nine-speed transmission. This powertrain is the only non-AMG powertrain the U.S. will get (the E43 AMG wagon won't come here), although you can bank on a bad-assMercedes-AMG E63 Wagonarriving in the near future.

Inside, things are aswell-designed and beautiful as in the regular E-Class.Leather, wood, and metal surfaces combine to create a damn fine place to commute. The interior color palette is restrained, with colors limited to browns, blacks, and tan leather. Mercedes' cutting-edge tech is scattered around the cabin, including the optional 12.3-inch infotainment screen.

The E400 carries over the same safety and semi-autonomous tech we saw on the2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan. Option the E400 correctly, and the Wagon comes with Mercedes' new "Drive Pilot" system, featuring systems like assisted steering, advanced following, evasive steering assist, and lane-change assist.

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E400 4Matic Wagon will hit dealer lots and Cape Cod driveways by early 2017.Noprice tag has yet beenannounced, but it should run right around $60,000 if history is any indicator.
