In the age of the SUV, there aren’t many station wagons left standing. Most automakers have abandoned the body style, which was once the choice of millions of American families. A shame? Maybe. But the wagons that remain are an impressive bunch, and one of the best is the 2020 Mercedes E-Class.
Mercedes has been selling wagons for over 50 years, and the E Class wagon first appeared way back in 1978. Now in its fourth generation, the new version is still built in Germany and received its last major redesign just a few years ago along with the E-Class sedan. It’s not only one of the largest wagons still offered in America, but it’s also the most powerful and the most expensive. It competes with the Volvo V90, the Jaguar XF Sportbrake, the far more affordable Buick Regal TourX, and the smaller Audi A4 Allroad and Volvo V60.
