Best Mercedes-Benz Wagons
Estate cars are known by the name of Station Wagons in the U.S. These cars are loved by car enthusiasts around the world. The reason why these cars receive so much love from the car loving community is because they provide SUV like practicality and car like fun. Another reason for their popularity is because they are getting rare nowadays as a lot of car manufacturers are focusing on the SUVs production due to high demand.
Wagons have been around for decades and some of the best car manufacturers have introduced their models throughout the years. But as always Mercedes-Benz have produced some of the best Station Wagons in the world.
Here are the best Station Wagons produced by Mercedes-Benz:
Mercedes-Benz E Class Wagon
The Mercedes-Benz E Class Wagon is arguably the best car available in its class. It is one of the best Station Wagons that Mercedes-Benz has produced over the years and has been their most iconic wagon since the 70’s. It gives the same comfort and performance that you get from an E Class sedan but with more practicality. The E Class sedan trunk has a capacity of just 13 cubic feet inside, while the Wagon has 35 cubic feet of space. And it can be increased up to cubic feet if you choose to fold the back seats.
Engine wise Mercedes-Benz certainly hasn’t disappointed at all. Of course the engines change between the trim levels such as an E300 will feature a 2.0 L inline-4 turbo-charged engine. The best engine choice however is available in the E 400 4Matic trim of the E Class Wagon; it’s a 3.0 L twin-turbocharged V6 engine that produces 329 HP.
As expected, the E Class Wagon is also available in an AMG version. It’s called the Mercedes-AMG E43 Wagon. It features the same twin-turbocharged V6 but this one produces a whopping 396 HP.
Mercedes-Benz C Class Wagon
Another cool wagon that Mercedes-Benz produces is the C Class Wagon or in particular the C 300 4Matic. The new C300 4Matic wagon is based on the smaller C Class sedan. It features a 2.0L Iniline-4 Turbo-charged engine that produces 241HP and 271 lb ft of torque at 1500 RPM under the hood. It is also a four wheel drive vehicle that makes it much more stable on the road.
The trunk space of the C300 4Matic is around 17 cubic feet which isn’t a lot when compared to the sedan. However, when you fold the rear seats down it gives you a total of 53 cubic feet of space, which is awfully close to its big brother the E400 4Matic we talked about earlier.
The Mercedes-AMG variant of the C Class wagon is insanely powerful. It comes with a 4.0L twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces 469HP and 479 lb ft of torque. This engine propels the car from 0-60 Mph in just 4.2 seconds, which is sports car like acceleration in a wagon.
