Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate to be replaced by a crossover in Australia

The new Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate appears unlikely to come to Australia in this generation, on account of the declining demand for passenger wagons that saw its predecessor struggle to achieve adequate volume. The load-lugging version of the E-Class sedan, a technological powerhouse that has achieved ripping sales since its July launch, will instead morph into a crossover for the Australian market, though conventional models are available in Europe...
