The next-generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class saloon debuted earlier this week. It introduced a new look for the venerable model that we should see proliferate across the other variants, including the estate recently spotted testing at the Nurburgring race track. It’s still wearing a camouflage wrap, but it’s not really hiding any styling surprises.
Mercedes has hidden the estate’s finer design details, but it should look quite similar to the saloon, which received an evolutionary update. It’ll have a wide grille, swept-back headlights, and a unique front bumper. We expect the company’s new taillight designs to make it over to the long-roofed estate that will alter the rear-end design.

Inside, the new E-Class Estate should look like the sedan with its MBUX Superscreen setup, which is standard across the range. It features a stand-alone instrument cluster next to an expansive central display in the dash that houses the infotainment goodies and vehicle settings. It’ll come packed with the latest technology, safety features, and digital connectivity.
Our spy photographers have previously captured the AMG E 53 Estate out testing. It’s rumoured to arrive with a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder paired with a potent electric motor, which makes 671 bhp and 752 pound-feet of torque in the C63. We don’t expect the E 53 to make that much, but it should be plenty of power.
With the E-Class saloon already revealed, we don’t think it’ll be long before the estate and All-Terrain variants break cover. It could happen before the end of the year, but we might have to wait for Mercedes to reveal the AMG variants, which the automaker often debuts later.
