Photos of the Estate variant of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class were released on Tuesday and, in the immortal words of Sir Mix-a-Lot, "Baby got back!." The Estate starts with the E-Class sedan platform and pumps up the rear storage to create a surprisingly handsome wagon.
The Estate takes many of the design cues that we first saw on Mercedes' ConceptFascination design study, such as the defined rear-fender bulge, but with a pair of extra doors and a much less severely sloped roof.
The photos also hint at power train configurations, with both gasoline and diesel power plants available with or without 4Matic all-wheel drive, and tech options, such as rear-seat entertainment.
The E-Class Estate joins the sedan and coupe as the third model in the E-Class lineup and should debut in the sheet metal at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
