2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Wagon first drive review

Thu Sep 15, 2016 5:47 pm

An icon since its introduction at the Frankfurt auto show in 1977, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class wagon enters the 2017 model year with a new model: the E400. Tons of new tech, a new engine option, and some of the best semi-autonomous driving features around make the new 2017 Mercedes-Benz E400 Wagon the most desirable yet.

Driving Pilot, Mercedes' latest name for a collection of technologies that combine to take most of the attention-demanding strain off of the driver in stop-and-go or highway driving, combines features like adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping, and automatic lane changes to allow the car to brake, accelerate, and turn with the flow of traffic and the road, all with minimal driver input. During our drive time on the roads and Autobahn around Hamburg, Germany, we found the new E400 to handle even poorly marked roads and construction areas remarkably well—two areas that often trip up competitors' systems. Of course, there are still road situations that the system can't decipher (especially road markings faded to the point of near-invisibility), in which case it will deactivate with a small chime alerting the driver that they're back in full control of the vehicle.... ... irst-drive


Mercedes - Benz is an icon in vehicles. I'm surprised the wagon is still a sellable model with all the cross overs, suv's etc. you dont see that many wagons out and about
