LEAKED: This Is The New Mercedes-Benz E-Class

Leaked

Has Mercedes-Benz ruined the E-Class?

Just a week ahead of the car's scheduled world premier at the Detroit Motor Show on January 11, a host of official photos of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan have been leaked. The photos are courtesy of Germany’s Auto-Press that also revealed some new details about the E-Class, which has been codenamed W213. According to the outlet, the executive sedan from Stuttgart utilizes Mercedes’ new modular MRA platform, which is shared by the latest C-Class and S-Class. From the pictures, it’s easy to see the similarities between the C-Class.

The E-Class’ restyled body is meant to split the difference between the smaller and sportier C-Class, while having an extremely low drag-coefficient of 0.23. Mercedes has already previewed the E-Class’ new interior, which features a fully digital instrument panel with other technology coming from the S-Class on higher-end models. The next-gen E-Class will also offer users three suspension choices beyond the standard setup, with the most impressive being an optional air suspension unit with electronically controlled adjustable damping. Is the E-Class’s new look a hit or a miss?
