Mercedes E-Class Wagon Spied Nearly Undisguised as it Nears Debut

The new Mercedes E-Class wagon is nearing its public debut.

The German automaker has been spied testing the car with very little camouflage, hinting that its reveal is close. Now that the 2017 Mercedes E-Class sedan has already debuted at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show earlier this year, there’s little reason to hide certain elements of the wagon variant.

What Mercedes is trying to keep a secret is the design of the rear, but the camouflage isn’t hiding much. Spy photographers were able to catch another prototype testing that showed off more of its rear side window, giving us a good look at what to expect.

Wagons may be a dying breed in the North American market thanks to crossovers and SUVs, but it doesn’t appear that Mercedes will axe the offering in the U.S. anytime soon. The current Mercedes E-Class wagon starts at $60,825 including destination for a standard E350 4MATIC model. There is also a more powerful E63 S wagon sporting 577 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque from a 5.5-liter biturbo V8 with a starting price of $105,225.
