The E-Class Estate offers impressive stowage space. To use it efficiently, it requires intelligent solutions. Mercedes-Benz has developed the EASY-PACK loading aid to maximise efficiency in the load compartment. The Estate is equipped as standard with the EASY-PACK tailgate, which is operated electrohydraulically and can be opened at the push of a button from the driver’s seat, on the tailgate itself or using the ignition key. It is closed using a switch on the tailgate. The EASY-PACK load-compartment cover is also standard equipment. The double retractable cover located near the C-pillar protects the luggage from the sun and from prying eyes. To make loading easier, the cover moves upwards when the tailgate is opened, and automatically returns to its original position when the tailgate is closed.
