One of the marks of a truly world-class luxury car is when its well-received by both fans and critics. And so, being given a positive review from a renowned automotive online trading site fares really well for a carmaker. In this case, the vehicle that was put on the hot seat is the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate. The reviewer – none other than Auto Trader.com with road tester Richard Dredge.
The first thing they noticed upon road testing the Estate was the sheer space available for your arms and legs. You could literally stretch out and sleep overnight if you wanted to without feeling like canned tuna in the morning. The air suspension is just as good, making you feel like riding on a tour bus rather than an SUV.
Steering was a plus as well, especially since the Estate is rear-wheel drive. Despite its size and weight, you won’t feel like a lumbering pig when zipping across crawlers on the streets of the urban jungle. Couple its nimbleness with zippy acceleration, and you’ve got a winner in terms of comfort and performance that’ll get you through the drudgery of everyday city driving.
Of course, only the entry model E200 CGI Estate was put through the tests, so you could expect more from higher variants. Still, with a top speed of 140 mph, the E200 is no pushover.
