While you’re reading this review, the engineers from globally know the German car maker, Mercedes, are in the process of adding the finishing touches to their brand new 2016 Mercedes E Class. From the very first, available, spy photos, we can come to the conclusion that this brand new variant will be slightly longer, than its current available model. And, that’s awesome news for all of us, truly and devoted, fans of Mercedes. That’s going to be the case, because brand new E class is intended to be built on a new rear – wheel-drive MRA platform, which presents one of the main characteristics of a current highly trendy S-Class and C-Class.
This marginal growth will have as a result not only increasing Mercedes’s sporty overall appearance, but it’ll boost the inner space, too. The lodestar of this incredible 2016 E Class is to start a brand new era of the hybrid galore combined with outstanding and pretty reliable self-driving technique and a wide range of the most different engine options. Pretty brave and clever idea, we simply can’t wait to see it realized!
Interior, Exterior & Appearance of 2016 Mercedes E Class
One of the keys of completely redesigning of the general appearance of the E’s, lies in increased usage of the aluminum, which will have, as a direct result, significant decrease in overall weight of this stunning and magnificent car. As you may remember, the previous versions of this car had, somehow, boxier general appearance combined with deliberately angular surfaces. The vast majority of us weren’t so thrilled about it, so its designers have decided that fix this. So, brand new variant uses newly design language that adopts much more attractive, softener and smoother design combined with, somehow, sleeker profile.
When it comes to some significant changes regarding the interior design of 2016 Mercedes E Class, worth of mention is the fact, besides the main cabin is slightly longer and offers for all the passengers more than enough leg and headroom, it is, also, equipped with some brand new technological features. Among them all the most striking ones are: huge tablet infotainment system, digital instrument cluster and a plush center console. Once, when the E class, finally, hits the global car markets, the most likely will come in two trims- a Coupé and soft-top Cabriolet trim.
2016 Mercedes E Class Engine
Now, the engine area is going to suffer some major changes. Surely, it is planned that the E63 AMG range-topper still is one of the engine options, combined with newly a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 with an average power 600bhp. Chain of engines available continues, and the second one will, definitely, be a 2.9-liter diesel six, which can pump up to 313bhp in twin-turbo guise and over 400bhp when being motivated by four chargers, two of them battery-driven. It is planned also newly 1.6-liter four-pot powertrain with a total output of an average 122bhp. It is also intended that by 2017 this German giant launch up to 10 brand new plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) and that’s a pretty impressive plan, you must agree with us!
Release Date & Prices of 2016 E Class Mercedes
Although, the exact pricing for the 2016 Mercedes E Class is a top kept secret, according to the rumors, it will come around $53,000 for the core trim as much as $100,000 for the somehow high performance version. This stunning car is going to be released by the end of 2015.
