Mercedes Benz E-Class

High-Performance Estate With Dream Figures

476/700/1910 – these are the new dream figures in the sporty Mercedes Estate segment. With a maximum output of 476 hp, a maximum torque of 700 Newton metres and a loading volume of up to 1910 litres, the new Mercedes Benz E 55 AMG Estate has a starring role as a dynamic and practical estate that ticks all the boxes.

  • Powerful AMG supercharged V8 engine with 476 hp of output
  • AMG sports suspension with air springs and level control
  • Dynamic appearance thanks to AMG bodystyling and 18-inch twin-spoke wheels
  • AMG sports seats upholstered in luxurious nappa/nubuck leather

The exceptional status of this new AMG high-performance estate is immediately obvious when one looks under the bonnet or opens the tailgate. Thanks to turbocharging the eight-cylinder AMG engine develops an output of 476 hp at 6100 rpm from a displacement of 5.5 litres, as well as an outstanding torque of 700 Newton metres at between 2650 and 4500 rpm. Depending on the position of the rear seats the load capacity varies between 650 and 1910 litres (VDA measuring method). No other series-production estate boasts as much output and torque or offers such a large, flexible interior as the new E 55 AMG Estate.

34 per cent more output and 32 per cent more torque

The new E 55 AMG Estate develops 34 per cent more output and 32 per cent more torque than its predecessor with a naturally aspirated V8 engine (354 hp and 530 Newton metres). Its performance figures need fear no comparison with sports cars: the Estate accelerates from standstill to 62.5 mph in just 4.8 seconds (predecessor: 5.9 sec), while the maximum speed is limited to 155 mph.
