Here's a car that manages to be understated, classy and a great family wagon all at the same time. The W124-generation Mercedes E-Class is legendary for its tank-like build quality, with some German taxis amazingly racking up well in excess of a million miles. 

Growing demand means that prices can only go one way. The Coupé and Convertible models are also worth a look if you’re after something more glamorous.
