Mercedes E350 CDI Avantgarde Estate Review & Road Test
To be absolutely precise, what we have for a week of playing – to review and road test – is the Mercedes-Benz E350 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY Avantgarde Estate.
Which thankfully isn’t plastered out in chrome lettering across the back of Mercedes’ newest E Class Estate. Just a simple E350 on one side of the tailgate and CDI on the other. And a small ‘BlueEFFICIENCY’ badge at the base of the front wings. After all, this is 2010 and ‘Eco’ sells cars. Even if it’s German ‘Blue Eco’ instead of the rest of the world’s ‘Green-Eco’.
We love an Estate car. No, not us (although we do), but us as a nation. The Brits. We may never have to move Auntie Joan’s fridge-freezer up the road and we may never buy a turn of the century wardrobe at the Antiques Fair. But we like to know that if we want to we can play Mr Shifter.
