The Mercedes E Class Estate – A Seven Seater With a Twist
Whether you have a large family or regularly need to carry more than four other passengers, you’ll need a Seven Seater Car. Unfortunately, if you don’t want to turn up in a pseudo-mini bus, then there aren’t many options for you, apart from a Mercedes E Class estate. The sixth and seventh seat are in the boot and face out the back.
The Mercedes E Class Estate – Purchase Price
Prices for the techno-Merc start at just £29,785 and go all the way up to a heady £73,855 for the AMG model.
The Mercedes E Class Estate – Miles Per Gallon
Those enhancements have a desired effect, for example, the E220 CDI is now 9.8mpg better than the previous model with a total figure of 49.6mpg being available.
The Mercedes E Class Estate – Co 2 Emissions
The new Mercedes E Class Estate also only emits 150g/km CO2, which is 38g/km less than before and will please those who are required to pay 40% tax.
The Mercedes E Class Estate – BlueTec Diesel Engine lowers Co2
Mercedes always seems to push the boundaries of what is required and the latest E350 BlueTEC diesel engine not only meets the EU-6 regulations for diesel cars. That regulation hasn’t even been applied yet and isn’t due until 2014! The BlueTEC technology squirts a spray of water down the exhaust pipe, which reduces nitrogen oxides and converts it into completely harmless water and nitrogen. It’s a technology that completely revolutionises exhaust emissions and should really be applied to all new cars.
The Mercedes E Class Estate – Easy Pack Function
If you’re struggling with your trolley in the supermarket, the Easy-Pack function, allows you to open the boot lid from afar and it electronically removes the load compartment cover too. In the boot, there is 695-litres of space, with the rearmost seats in place which makes it the largest in its class, beating BMW’s 5 Series and Audi’s A6 Avant. What’s more, there is an additional 112-litres under the boot floor. Fold all of the seats down and there is a van-like 1,950-litres of space.

The Mercedes E Class Estate – Sixth and Seventh Seats
The Easy-Pack Quickfold seats in the Mercedes E Class Estate can be folded away with just one finger and doesn’t require any headrests to be moved or the seats in front to be slid forward. When the Mercedes E Class Estate is fully-loaded with seven people and their baggage, the self-levelling air suspension brings the car back to its normal height, which allows you to scoff at those other estates dragging their rear-end on the motorway on a bank holiday.
The Mercedes E Class Estate – BlueEFFICIENCY
There are three diesels and four petrol engines to choose from, all of which have undergone ‘BlueEFFICIENCY‘ measures that have stripped unnecessary weight, given enhanced energy efficiency and better aerodynamics to aid fuel economy.
The Mercedes E Class Estate – Safety Features
Yet more clever technology is available on the latest seven seater from Mercedes, with Attention Assist – for those sleepy drivers that forget they’re behind the wheel – which detects drowsiness and beeps until you wake from your slumber. There are nine air-bags, so if you are caught in an accident then you will feel like you’ve landed inside a balloon!
The Mercedes E Class Estate – Practicality
The Merc estate has been around for almost 30 years now and its popularity hasn’t waned at all in that time. With hundreds of gadgets and gizmos, Mercedes’ reliability, great looks and acres of luggage space, the E Class Estateis one of the most practical of cars, but that still oozes style and a panache that other manufacturers simply cannot match.
There are five other models of Mercedes 7 Seater Cars with which to choose from.
