Amazing Cars & Drives Car Buyers Guide: Mercedes-Benz E220D AMG Line Estate Review
Up next in our series of car reviews is the Mercedes-Benz E220D AMG Line Estate Review. The world has been waiting for the release of the new Mercedes E-Class Estate, and at Amazing Cars & Drives, we are happy to say that it has certainly been worth the wait. A sizeable, opulent, spacious and stylish vehicle, the car’s boot allows for a comfortable experience for all. However, if it’s a streamlined, slimmed-down version you are after, the latest E-Class is also available in showrooms as a saloon, two-door coupe or a drop-top cabriolet.
Perhaps the biggest selling point of the new E-Class is its impressive interior, which is head-and-shoulders above the competition (BMW 5 Series Touring or the Volvo V90, for example) thanks to its visual appeal and huge range of useful features. This is achieved via the car’s swooping dashboard, including switches finished in a brilliant aluminium. What’s more is that the standard estate models are equipped with real leather upholstery as a standard.
Finishing off the sleek dashboard is a useful and intuitive 8.4 inch infotainment display, which is upgradeable to a 12.3 inch online system which boasts a larger size, resolution and an improved SAT-NAV system. All of this is based within a vehicle which allow for ample head and leg room in the front and back of the car – further extendable by fully adjustable electronic seats. In the back of the car, a wider cabin and softer central seat allows for the comfortable journey of all passengers.
The generous space in the front and back of the vehicle is matched in the boot of the car, which boasts an impressive 640 litre capacity. Seats can be flipped down, extending this large space even further. Notably, the large boot is big enough to carry a mountain bike with the wheels attached.
If you liked everything about the S-Class but need boot space to accommodate family life, the E-Class Estate is ideal. With a price tag that is high, the comfort, luxury and integrated features of this car make it a solid investment.
