Driver assistance will be a major theme for the new generation E-Class Estate with lane-departure warnings, an eye-movement monitor, traffic-sign identification, road-condition sensors and stability control added to the range.
The Estate version will naturally mimic the model range and engine line-up of the sedan which includes the usual ensemble of petrol and diesel V6 and V8 engines.
The potent flagship AMG version is also already in development and will feature 386kW 6.2-litre V8-engine.
