Spy-Shots of Cars

The new S213 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate has been spied almost completely undisguised. It’s not the first time the “T-Modell” has made an appearance in public, but never have we seen one this uncovered before — not even when we spied the AMG E 63 version recently.

What you’re looking at here is the new E-Class Estate in its standard look. Easily mistaken for the Exclusive Line, the basic variant has a bigger three-lourve front grille and wears a bonnet-mounted Three-Pointed Star. Look closer and you’ll notice that there aren’t any chrome accents over the front bumper’s air inlets or across the front apron. And yes, those are halogen bulbs fitted on the latest-gen E-Class (two LED headlamp options will be available).

At the rear, the Estate here features a basic bumper arrangement, again with no chrome, and even no visible exhaust tips. The wraparound taillights appear similar to those on the C-Class Estate. The 20-inch multi-spoke wheels, however, are clearly more premium items.

As previously reported, the next-gen E-Class Estate is likely to be available in two guises — a standard estate and an All-Terrain version. The latter is said to have greater ground clearance and several protective underbody panels. None of these items are apparent here, suggesting that this is just the regular version.

Powertrains will be carried over from the W213 sedan along with a few more engine variants that haven’t been launched yet. The E-Class Estate is expected to make its global debut in September, possibly at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
