In any season, on any road, 4MATIC® all-wheel drive adds to your confidence and control. Always engaged and optimizing torque to every wheel, 4MATIC integrates with ESP®, our standard Electronic Stability Program, for maximum effectiveness in corners and slippery conditions. It also incorporates our 4-wheel Electronic Traction System (4-ETS®), which monitors for the first sign of wheel slip and responds to ensure torque is sent to the wheels with the best grip, even if that's only one wheel.
With increased output of 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque, the 3.0L V6 combines twin turbos and many other advances to lower emissions, fuel consumption, and its 0-60 time to just 5.1 seconds. The rapid-multispark ignition can fire up to four times in a millisecond, while the high-pressure Direct Injection precisely tunes the fuel spray. A lightweight diecast-alloy block, widely variable valve timing, reduced friction, and "on-demand'' ancillary components further boost efficiency.
A network of LEDs can create not just a soothing ambience in the cabin, but one you can alter to suit your mood, or even create one. An incredible 64 selectable colors and adjustable brightness let the driver control the atmosphere like never before. Edge-lighting glows from beneath the "waveform" dash trim and door armrests, and from behind the instrumentation screen panel. Even the footwells, door handles and rear overhead assist grips are bathed in a soft glow.
For added convenience in the rain or with an armful of packages, you can fully open the liftgate via a switch on the driver's interior door panel or a button on the SmartKey remote. Press a button on the underside of the liftgate and it powers itself closed. A sensor automatically stops the liftgate if it detects an obstruction, and you can set the system to limit the opening height, useful under low ceilings.
Spacious, meet stylish. Sensible, meet sensuous. The E-Class Wagon cabin is a flowing sculpture where information flows seamlessly as well. From intuitive controls to aromatherapy and a hot stone massage, it's a sensation for all your senses.
