Ahead of its Detroit Auto Show debut, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class leaks online. First images show a midsize sedan being a smaller replica of the S-Class or a larger one of the C-Class – depends which way you’ll look at. What we get actually is a new E-Class that looks like a cross between the C-Class and S-Class, with smoother lines and Mercedes’ new design language. A nice detail is the dual LED running light strip in the headlight clusters.

The new E-Class is 43 mm longer than its predecessor and has had its wheelbase increased by 65 mm.

The cabin of of the new E-Class is also a smaller replica of the S-Class with premium materials and trims, and two large 12.3 inch displays. The driver can switch between the three available styles for the design of the digital gauges.

The 2017 E-Class will be available with a range of four- and six-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines, as well as a E350e plug-in hybrid variant. It’s unclear exactly which models will come to the U.S., but our best guess is a four-cylinder E300, six-cylinder E400, the aforementioned E350e, and probably an E250d diesel. The only transmission available at launch will be the 9G-Tronic automatic.

Mercedes’ new E-Class also brings a semi-autonomous driving mode capable of switching lanes and handling more complex driving tasks than the previous Distronic could.

    Like the BMW 7 Seies, the new E is more exciting on the inside rather than the outside. It is loaded with high tech and the whole interior cabin truly feels like an occasion. BUT, the new E has two huge problems which I do not think Benz has solved despite last minute attempts to improve the production models. This is to do with the drive itself as well as the build quality. They are both not as good as they should be and thus the bosses in Munich are not too worrIed- at the moment at least. However, most of us know that Benz has a habit of screwing up initial production cars and then improving them with time!

    The exterior of the luxury trim, appears as a smaller S-class but the sport trim looks merely like an oversized C-class.
