Mercedes-Benz has revealed its E-class executive estate ahead of its arrival in the UK by the end of October.
From launch, the E-class estate will be powered by three engines - a 194hp 2.0-litre diesel, a 258hp 3.0-litre diesel and a 401hp 3.0-litre petrol.
The most frugal of the range is the 2.0-litre diesel - badged E220d - which emits 109g/km of CO2, while the larger and more powerful diesel emits 140g/km of CO2, 7g/km of CO2 more than the saloon.
Mercedes said the E-class's boot is capable of carrying 670 litres with the rear seats up (up 70l on the previous model) and 1820 litres (up 35l on the old model).
Inside, the E-class features a 12.3-inch screen and a voice control system, while the firm's Me Connect service is also included, which allows customers "to obtain personalised support", including restaurant reservations and sending navigation routes directly to the car.
Safety-wise, the E-class is fitted with active brake assist as standard, as well as a semi-autonomous cruise control system which can work at speeds up to 130mph.
The E-class also introduces the firm's Remote Parking Pilot program which allows the vehicle to moved in and out of garages or parking spaces remotely by using a smartphone app.
