Is this the new Mercedes Benz E-Class?

24 posts in this topic

Honestly, I LOVE the current E class... but then again, it's conservative, and that's what I like.

HOnestly I think MB did much better when they were engineering driven versus so marketing conscious. One of the few things they are doing which I wholeheartedly commend is that they still offer two (pillarless) hardtops. Other than that I'd default ot a Cadillac in most cases.

Before I forget: this car is Uuuuuuu-glee!

A natural evolution of the current model. Let's hope the electronic gremlins that have plagued the current model are gone. Love the sexy coupe-like styling and beautiful beltline!

WTH is coupe-like about this? This 4-door coupe maddness has to stop. Most of todays "Coupes" are not even coupes by true definition nevermind a 3-box, 4-door, pillared sedan.

Me and XP are going to buy a POS Towncar next summer and make it into a TRUE Town Car.... but first I have to buy a compressor and Zip-cutter.

:rolleyes: They aren't calling it a 4-door coupe, silly. I just think the racy roofline is "coupe-like," because coupes tend to have racy rooflines. Seriously, chill out.

Just making sure everyone realizes all three of those images are computer generated illustrations. Someone's guess at what the vehicles will look like.

But yea, if that wagon turns out like that. Wow.

Yea of course, but they really look like MB's design direction as of late...

Automobile Magazine had a much better future E in one their issues.

The thing shown at Edmunds' is ugly, a horrible CLS chop-thing.

But reliability (thus engineering) of MB in the late 80s and early 90s is really nothing to bring home about.

The photos in the Feb issue of Car don't look like that..they show a car much closer to the new S-class style but with wider taillights. The headlight treatment is similar to the first photo, though...kind of like the Lexus GS.
