All new Mercedes E Class
From the German magazine Autizeitung.
This does look like the real thing.
The smallish wheels, the boring shape we’ve seen a million times before.
And from spy shots we’ve seen , the interior could be even worse.
For a car that starts in the US at over $50 000.

don’t worry vince, mercedss will sell thousands of them here and aboard.
but you are right, i wish it has the budging fenders similar to the new s-class. now, that s-class is baad-ass.
the jacked-up rear looks like some 16 yr old got ahold of Dad’s car. Real Cool!!! Too Bad Mercedes has lost the key to elegance.
The side windows and doors are exactly like the 2003 Honda Accord. Look at it and compare.
The entire car is not a good design, but it has some good elements.
The front end is a bit clumsy like the 2005-07 Lexus GS.
I believe this sets up the ascent of Audi to the global luxury higher echelons!
This picture is close but still computer enhanced, especially the rear.
still looks like a photoshopped pic; parts of it doesn’t look like it could possibly be the new car
Well, I understand they can’t make it look sleek, since that’s the CLS’ forte.. but why do they have to make it ungainly? That is truly a shame.
Not bad actually. I like it.
This is the new mercedes No-Class.
This is the automotive equivalent of an extremely conservative (ie, very dull), but well tailored suit made of very high quality fabrics. As long as Mercedes-Benz logos appear prominently on the hood and trunk this type of car is a good fit for typical E class customers. However, as time passes no one (save for Mercedes-Benz aficionados) will remember this design.
Good reason to save about $25K and buy a loaded Honda Accord instead. The Accord would likely be more reliable, too.
The rich and posh will still buy them in droves.
I actually love it.
Vince doesn’t realize that there are lower trim lines elsewhere in the world, which is why it has smaller wheels. They use the E Class as a taxi in some countries in Europe.
This would make a great taxi.
