The Mercedes E450 Wagon is Infinitely Better Than Your SUV

Why buy an SUV when you can have an amazing and sporty wagon instead?

The Mercedes E450 Wagon is an often-overlooked gem on the U.S. market

After spending an entire week with it, it became clear that it’s the perfect blend of sporty handling and capability

Only offered in All-Terrain form, the E450 comes with plastic body cladding and higher ground clearance that its sedan sibling

Thanks to these features, it’s perfect for going off the beaten path

The lower center of gravity and 115.7-inch wheelbase also allows it to handle amazingly on-road as well, even it sharp bends at speed.

Power comes from a 3.0-liter inline-six that’s paired with the EQ boost system and AWD

Total system output is rated at 362 HP and 369 Lb-FT, which means 0-60 mph comes in 5.1 seconds

It is a wagon, though, with off-road ambition so top speed is capped at 130 mph – the same as the Audi A6 Allroad

For the 2021 model year, Mercedes gave the interior a new steering wheel with capacitive buttons

And the new Mbux infotainment system is lightyears ahead of the system in older fifth-gen models

The interior features an attractive, sporty design with comfortable and sporty seats

And, since this is a wagon, you can carry around 35.0 cubic-feet of cargo with rear passengers

Or you can lay down the seats and carry as much as 64.0 cubic-feet

Pricing for the E450 starts at $67,600 but can climb easily into the $80,000 range if you go crazy with options

In the end, we found the E450 Wagon to be superior to most SUVS thanks to its general all-purpose capability

It’s the perfect vehicle for someone who wants a car but needs extra cargo capacity or the ability to travel off the beaten path
