E-Class makes life a bit easier
Published 31/03/2010 | 05:00
MERCEDES just brought out its new E-Class estate.
There are a few clever touches that should make everyday life a bit easier.
These include a key-activated tailgate that opens and closes the load area at the touch of a button. Another button quickly lowers the split rear seats back to create a level carrying surface.
There are several engines, but most of the interest will be in the 200CDI, 220CDI and 250CDI diesels (all with low emissions BlueEFFICIENCY technology and low road tax). The 200CDI starts at €44,185 ex-works, with the 220CDI following at €46,575 and the 250CDI at €48,825.
Standard equipment includes the drowsiness detection system, automatic emergency braking, adaptive high-beam assist and nine airbags. And there is air suspension with self-levelling at the rear.
