Mercedes-Benz E350 4Matic Wagon
Family-friendly feature: Flexible seating, cargo space
On sale: June 2010
Mercedes-Benz, known for station wagons since the launch of the first E-Class wagon in 1977, unveiled its new E350 4Matic Wagon at the New York Auto Show. It's based on an all-new generation of the E-Class sedan, which just came out in the United States for the 2010 model year. The E350 4Matic Wagon -- 4Matic means all-wheel drive -- is expected to sell well in the Northeast where wagons have kept some of their popularity. Besides all-new styling with sharper edges and a sportier-looking front end, the new wagon is much easier to use than the model it replaces, in terms of flipping the rear seats up or down, to switch between room for passengers and room for cargo.
