What Do You Want To Know About The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E400 Wagon?

Illustration for article titled What Do You Want To Know About The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E400 Wagon?

Here in America, we find ourselves with a sudden wealth of wagons as a nice byproduct of the crossover boom. Well, maybe not a wealth, but there’s more available now than in many years past. Kristen is driving the Buick Regal TourX and just tested a Volvo V90 Cross Country; BMW, Volkswagen, Mini, Audi and Jaguar (!!!) all have wagon options too; and we’re even set to drive the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo in March.


But there’s one wagon stalwart that’s pretty much always been here, and it’s the Mercedes-Benz E-Class wagon. I’m driving one right now. What do you want to know about it?

Somewhat sadly, this is not the bananas 603 horsepower Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon, although it’s nice enough and good enough that I’m never disappointed to be in it. It is the E400 4Matic wagon, the only non-AMG option for that car you can buy in America and the only wagon in Mercedes’ U.S. lineup. It’s no slouch, with a 3.0-liter biturbo V6 good for 329 horsepower and all-wheel drive.


These things start at $63,050—a $10,000 premium over the E-Class sedan—but with press-car-tastic options my tester comes in at just under $90,000. It’s a nice car, and an expensive one! I’m trying to determine if it’s worth it or not.

If you have questions, speak now or forever hold your peace.

90K for an E-Class with a hatchback is ridiculous. It would seem that the people interested in a Mercedes wagon can’t afford one and the people who can afford one would rather buy an SUV.
