The new Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate, will go on sale from 21 January 2010, with a base price of £29, 785, four per cent lower than the previous car.
From launch there will be a choice of seven engines: three diesel and four petrol; and as with the E-Class Saloon, 98 per cent of the E-Class Estate range will boast BlueEFFICIENCY measures.
The E 220 CDI Estate returns 49.6 mpg, an improvement of 9.8 mpg and emits just 150 g/km, 38 g/km less than the previous generation. These improvements also have a positive impact for company car users. The P11D value for a company car driver using an E 220 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY Avantgarde is £30,935. With the car now in the 21 per cent tax band for 2009/10, a seven band fall from 28 per cent, the benefit in kind would be £6,496.35. Therefore those paying 40 per cent tax would be charged £2,598.54 a year, £216.55 a month, equating to 33 per cent reduction over the previous E-Class Estate. The E 250 CDI and the V6 E 350 CDI Estate complete the diesel line-up.
June 2010 sees the arrival of a fourth diesel engine, the E 350 BlueTEC which already meets EU-6 standards that come in to effect in 2014. The petrol line-up starts with the E 200 CGI which returns 35.8 mpg and emits 184 g/km. The E 250 CGI, E 350 CGI and E 500 complete the range at launch and in March the E 63 AMG Estate will arrive as well to complete the petrol line-up.
