In January 2003, the Series S 211 E-Class estate had its world premiere at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The estate version of the E-Class saloon, which was launched in 2002, impressed with its pioneering technology, fascinating styling, superior trim level and intelligent functionality in the interior.
