Mercedes say it is "the most intelligent estate" they have built. That's because it has all the technology from the saloon.

It must be one of the roomiest, however, with a cargo area of 1,820 litres. Rear head and elbowroom are claimed to be best in class.

A version with a third row of seats - effectively a folding bench for children - is planned.

A key engine from start will be the new 2-litre diesel (194bhp). The new 9G-TRONIC 9spd auto transmission is standard. A performance 401bhp, 3-litre V6 biturbo AMG E 43 4MATIC version will come later on.

And an all-wheel-drive version to compete against the Audi A6 Allroad will debut at the Paris Motor Show.
