Along with the sedan version, Mercedes-Benz also significantly updated the E-Class Estate and high-riding All-Terrain for the 2021 model year. With that, only the E63 AMG model has yet to get the new look.
Like the sedan, the long-roof versions of the E-Class get a new look at the front. There's the CLS-inspired headlights with a single LED strip serving as its daytime running lights. Further altering its look is the trapezoidal grill, giving it a wider-looking stance. The bumper is new, and so are air intakes and hood to better fit the changes made to the front end.
But whereas the four-door has a redesigned rear end, Mercedes-Benz left the rear of the Estate mostly untouched. There are minor cosmetic tweaks at the lower half of the bumper, along with a few changes to the garnish. Tail light elements have been retouched too, but other than that, it's still the familiar look it's been using since 2017. As for the All-Terrain, it gains a few extra inches of ground clearance, a pair of gloss black roof railing, and the entire bottom half of the wagon is surrounded by unpainted cladding.
Inside, there are new steering wheel designs and vary depending on the style package chosen. The AMG Line has a flat-bottom wheel while the non-sporting versions have a round one. Mercedes-Benz has also gotten rid of the scroll wheel to control the infotainment system. In its place is a touch pad and the acts as a 'mouse' to navigate through the menus. Software updates are also part of the changes.
On to technology and it's available with semi-autonomous driving capabilities. Some of these include Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC with route-based speed adjustment, Active Stop-and-Go Assist, Active Steering Assist, Active Brake Assist (with turning maneuver function), and Active Blind Spot Assist with exit warning, just to name a few.
Engine range is the same as the sedan. It starts with turbocharged four-cylinder engines in various states of tune with a base output of 156 PS in the E 180. The most powerful four-cylinder option available can be found in the E 350 which makes 255 PS. Opt for the E 450 and that boosted straight-six is good for 365 PS. But for those who want even more, there's the AMG E 53 using an uprated 3.0-liter inline-six from the E 450 and produces 435 PS. This engine is also available in the sedan.
On to diesels and the base E200d puts out 160 PS. At the other end of the spectrum is the E400d 4Matic which pushes out 330 PS and a stump-pulling 700 Nm of torque.
The E-Class Estate isn't typically offered here but, perhaps, if you ask nicely, Mercedes-Benz Philippines could bring in one for you.
