2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate Makes an Early Debut: Gallery with 25 Photos

The first official photos of the all-new 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate have made their way out early revealing the German firm's executive station wagon in all its glory. The third member of the new E-Class family after the sedan and the coupe variants is scheduled to make its first public appearance at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September with sales in Europe expected to start in November and the rest of the world from the beginning of 2010.

We're still short on details, but we do know that the new station wagon is longer and wider than the current E-Class Estate, something that should translate to improved passenger and luggage space.

The Estate will feature a similar spread of engines with the E-Class sedan and coupe models. The gasoline lineup will include a 204HP 1.8-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder, a 3.5-liter V6 with 292HP and a 5.5-liter V8 with 388HP while the diesel range will comprise of a 170HP four-pot, a 204HP twin-turbocharged 2.2-litre unit and a 3.0-liter V6 with 231HP.

As you can see in the photo gallery bellow, Mercedes will also offer four-wheel drive 4MATIC variants of the Estate.
