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. Launched in March 2003, the E-Class estate built on the success of its Series S 210 predecessor, which had sold over 266,000 units since 1996.

The new Mercedes E-Class estate initially came with a choice of three petrol engines and three CDI diesel engines with a range of power outputs from 110 kW (150 hp) to 150 kW (204 hp). The powerplants in the E 220 CDI (110 kW/150 hp), E 270 CDI (130 kW/177 hp) and E 320 CDI (150 kW/204 hp) belonged to the second generation of state-of-the-art common-rail engines, which, compared with the CDI engines in the predecessor model, delivered up to 8 per cent more torque and just under 5 per cent more power. At the same time, fuel consumption was reduced up to 0.6 litres per 100 kilometres. The top-of-the-line diesel model, the E 320 CDI, developed 500 Newton-metres of torque from as low as 1,800 rpm. This economical six-cylinder CDI unit, with a fuel consumption of 7.3 litres per 100 kilometres (NEDC combined consumption), was now also marketed for the first time in the USA**.
