Preview: 2010 Mercedes E-Class

Discussion in 'European Cars' started by smellygruby, Jan 22, 2008.

  1. Mercedes is set to release its next-generation E-class sedan by 2009, with sales to start soon after the car’s debut at the Geneva Motor Show. Remaining similar in size to the current model, the new E-class will pick up styling cues from the CLS four-door coupe as well as a new angular front end with four square shaped headlights.

    Base models will be powered by a 184hp four-cylinder turbo engine, with the range topping out with a 544hp V8 model. New to the lineup will be a direct injection petrol V6 model, a 354hp diesel V8 version and the all-new hybrid model that’s expected to arrive after 2010.

    The interior will hopefully continue Mercedes’ recent return to form in the quality department, and is expected to feature a mix of elements from the S and C-class models including a centrally mounted color screen as well as an in-dash unit between the speedo and tachometer. The central control module and steering wheel uses a similar design to the ones used in the new C-class, and the side mirrors will also pick up the same integrated indicators.

    A wagon variant will hit the market less than 12 months after the launch of the sedan and will feature a widened C-pillar and a chrome strip across its rear. A second E-Class variant is rumored to stretch 20cm longer than the standard E-Class and be manufactured in China. It will be aimed at emerging markets where the owner of the car only ever experiences it from the back seat.

    Sadly, after the disaster that is "CLC," I really can't say for sure what Mercedes will do with the E. The CLS is the last new Mercedes I still like.
