The 2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate now comes with a choice of more than just the E 22od, with the E 200 d, E 350 d and E 43 added to the UK range.
The 2016 Mercedes E-Class Estate was revealed back in June, but when Mercedes announced UK prices and specs for the new E-Class Estate, it was all a bit of a damp squib.
All Mercedes managed to come up with was prices and specs for the E 220 d Estate, although they made promises that they would get their abacus out and work out prices for the E 200 d, E 350 d and E 43 by October. Well, October’s here and Mercedes has managed to deliver prices and specs.
The only E-Class Estate actually available to order back in July – the E 220 d Estate – seems to have crept up in price to £38,230 since July, and it’s now undercut by the E 200 d starting at £36,735, with the E 350 d at £47,255 and the lively Mercedes-AMG E 43 at £58,290.
The new entry-level E 200 d gets 148bhp, emissions of 109g/km and official economy of 65.7mpg, and the E 350 d V6 diesel 254bhp, 140g/km and 48.7mpg.
Away from the oil-burners, the new AMG E 43 gets the bi-turbo 3.0 litre V6 petrol with 385bhp, enough to propel the not insignificantly sized E-Class Estate to 62mph in a very impressive 4.7 seconds. All the new models come with Mercedes 9G-Tronic auto ‘box.
Standard spec across the E-Class Estate range pretty much mirror that of the 2016 E-Class Saloon, but you can option a folding bench seat in the boot for £1250, an Easy-Pack load securing pack for £295 and a carbon fibre package for the E 43 AMG for £1575.
Mercedes GLC Coupe 350 d and AMG 43
It’s not just the E-CLass Estate range that’s growing, with Mercedes adding two new models to the GLC Coupe range too.
There’s no entry-level GLC 200 d, but the GLC 350 d 4MATIC diesel arrives with 254bhp, 161g/km emissions, official economy of 47.1mpg, a 0-62mph of 6.2 second s and a £47,135 price tag.
For only a few grand more – £50,960 – you could instead have the AMG GLc 43 4MATIC, with its 3.0 litre bi-turbo V6 good for 362bhp and a 0-62mph sprint in 4.9 seconds
All three new E-Class Estate models – E 200 d, E 350 d and E 43 – and the new GLC models – GLC 350 d and AMG 43 – are now available to order at Mercedes UK dealers. with first customer cars expected in December.
