2009 Mercedes-Benz E350 Estate

An absolutely immaculate ULEZ-compliant E350 Estate with just 41k miles from new.
This is a very well-specified car in Avantgarde S specification with the AMG Sport Package. It has climate, memory/heated sports seats, bi-xenon headlamps, power tailgate, glass sunroof and parking sensors. In addition, the COMAND has been upgraded to the latest Dynavin unit. This gives the car Bluetooth hands-free, music streaming, DAB radio, touch-screen sat-nav and a reverse camera. So much the same tech features you get on a new car.
Sold new in Japan and recently imported to the UK, this E350 has benefited from the kinder climate, stricter tests of Japan, and it has never seen road salt, which is not used in Japan. Together with the very low mileage, this has resulted in a car of outstanding condition that you just cannot find in the UK. The underside is incredible with absolutely no corrosion.
The other reason we go to the trouble of finding these cars on the other side of the world is specification. These very well specified estates with larger petrol engines were sold in tiny numbers in the UK, but they are far nicer to drive than the diesels we bought and today, thanks to ULEZ and other clean air zones with which they are compliant, make much more sense.
In addition to being ULEZ compliant these cars are taxed in the PLG tax class, not emissions based, which means the road tax is just £295 per year at current rates.
Two keys, recently serviced and has history from Japan too.
Immaculate condition throughout and drives beautifully with impressive performance combined with a smooth, refined drive.
These estates are fantastic ‘do everything’ cars, offering pace, space, luxury and all for less than the price of a new Fiesta.
