It was somewhat of a surprise for the US market to finally get the 2011 E350 4Matic wagon, as it was previously announced by Mercedes that the said model will not be available in the states. The E350 Estate made its first appearance at the Frankfurt Motor Show last year.
The addition of the E-Class Estate has completed the mid size line up for Mercedes-Benz in the US today. Both the sedan and coupe share the same styling as the wagon except for that wagon rear end. Another surprise is the re-introduction of the pop out jump seats from the cargo area floor. The throwback or way back jump seats are not new in the mid sized Merc. It was also available in the W123 estates of the late 70s and early 80s.
It is confirmed that Mercedes will only sell the E350 4Matic wagon for now. The last E-Class wagon AMG was offered as a special order model, so maybe that will be the case here as well
