The next-generation Mercedes E-Class, set for a March debut at the Geneva show, has been caught with minimal camouflage during testing. The revised lines, which split the difference between the C-Class and S-Class, are evident under the tape, as is the new grille and headlight treatment. The reskin is most evident at the rear, where a faster rear windshield line and more coupelike C-pillar eliminate much of the boxy look that’s been common to E-Classes in recent years. The new styling is by no means groundbreaking, but should continue to please the large number of loyal E-Class buyers while keeping the car's looks current.

The usual wide range of engine options is expected, with V6, V8 and Bluetec diesel offerings. The new E-Class wagon has also been spotted in testing, and will likely debut some time after the sedans hit the showrooms.

Now the AMG wagon version of new E-class.

2010 E63 AMG sedan has been photographed on numerous occasions since July 2007 in WCF, but these latest shots taken in the Nürburgring area finally show us the wagon version.

Here we can see the signature AMG traits with the oval shaped quad exhaust tips, mismatched AMG alloys with low profile tires already seen on another recent W212 E63 AMG sedan, big brake kit with cross drilled rotors and sportier AMG style side skirts.

Despite murmurings of a new AMG engine with a displacement of 6.4-liters to 6.9 producing upwards of 600hp, we're going to bet that AMG's 6.2-liter V8 unit which currently produces in 518hp (525 PS/ 386kW) will get boosted to at least 544hp (552 PS/ 406kW). Hopefully we're wrong.

The 2010 E-Class W212 will make its debut in Geneva this March, with the AMG and wagon variants (S212) arriving at Frankfurt in September as 2011 models.

Note the different rims at front and rear.

Some update. New E-class coupe is spied.
Source : Mercedes E Class Coupe Interior Spied - worldcarfans

Article:
Quote:

More spy photos of the 2010 or 2011 Mercedes coupe have surfaced, showing the CLK replacement's slick lines and updated instrument panel. This red coupe's light camouflage hides only the shape of the new headlamps; the larger, C-Class Sport-style grille and dramatic, CLS-like rear backlight are clearly visible. There appears to be enough rear seat room that the E-Class coupe will still be a true four-passenger coupe.

Inside, the new dash shows a sport three-gauge pod and a revised center stack that's less complex than Mercedes' current setup. There's still a lot going on, but the navigation system's information screen has been moved up to the top of the dash, providing better visibility and a less cluttered appearance.

No longer named CLK, the new generation E-Class coupe, although still based on the C-Class platform, is expected to arrive in 2009 with the C207 designation. The E-Coupe convertible (A207) will follow a year later with a retractable hardtop unlike the current C209's soft top.

The Bangle fever is catching on, or so it seems. The headlight cluster is appaling, and way too concept-ish as compared to the elegant models that preceded it. The W124 was regal and the W212 IMHO was also elegant in it's own special way. The W212 may be ahead of it's predecessors in many a way, but seriously. I'd rather go for the 5 series than the new E class if i wanted flambuoyant styling.

This E Class Coupe looks more like a CLS Class Coupe from the side angle!

More update.

Mercedes E Class Sedan Spied with Interior Shot - worldcarfans

Here are the latest photos of the 2010 Mercedes E-Class sedan caught during early evening traffic in Germany. The overcast sky provides a little more depth to the photos for a nice view of the overall shape and size of the new generation W212.

The new E-Class was previewed in “shooting brake” configuration at the recent Paris Motor Show as the ConceptFASCINATION. It featured a front end design and interior that is expected to show up in the new E-Class but slightly simplified.

The usual range of engine options is expected, with V6, V8 and Bluetec diesel offerings. Other variants spotted in testing are the wagon, CLK/E-Class coupe and AMG versions. The new E-Class is set to debut in Geneva in 2009.

I have a feeling I'm going to hate this "new mercedes" as well. It might be all angular and swoopy and everything, but like the new C, it seems to have followed that theme which IMO is ruining all the new Mercs. Sigh, W220 and R129.

Some more shots.

Here's another series of spy shots on the coming E-Class. These are of the coupe version, which will be a very important model for Mercedes since they have discontinued the CLK badging and essentially turned the CLK into this E-Class Coupe.

German automakers are very reserved in their styling and prefer the concept of (very gradual) evolution rather than revolution in updating models. This shot reveals that philosophy in action. But the car does appear to have a greater curve along the horizontal length of the body and a more muscular hunch above the rear wheels.

The E-Class Coupe will likely come with, amongst Mercedes standard lineup of engines, Mercedes' latest 204 hp turbodiesel Bluetec, an AMG version with the 550 hp V8, and may also include the BlueHybrid that Mercedes is developing.

The new E-Class sedan will be introduced at the Geneva Motor Show next March. Other variants, including this coupe, will likely only be first unveiled at the Frankfurt motor show next September.

An update from worldcarfans.
Source: Mercedes E 63 AMG Wagon Spied - worldcarfans

Article :

At the Frankfurt Motor Show we'll be able to see the new Mercedes-Benz E 63 AMG in all its full glory, minus all this black plastic you see in our latest spy shots. These cars are not your average mama's trolleys but fully-fledged missiles disguised as baby prams. Spied here is the E 63 AMG in Estate format, meaning Usain Bolt carrying a travel suitcase, but just as quick.

The E 63 AMG shows off its big brakes with cross-drilled discs and a lowered suspension, as well as those four huge round tailpipes. Also a new front bumper with larger air intakes should be a major attraction. That 6.2-litre V8 is expected to keep its place under the hood, producing well over 550 bhp in line with current German power king Audi RS6's 573 horses.

Some more spy shots of the E-class Coupe.

Following our last Mercedes E-Class Coupe expose, we now show you the latest pictures of the car wearing a minimal amount of black tape and a contrasting body color. Remember, while the vehicle previously spied was black in color, only the trained eye was able to see really see the body details. Now all the lines are much clearer; it looks better the more we see.

Many of the current engine and transmission choices will still be found in the E-Class Cabrio, ranging from those 1.8-litre turbocharged petrols right up to a new 500bhp-plus AMG version. Diesels are optional as well. The car will be out on sale in spring 2009.

We are all expecting the new 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate to debut for public viewing at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2009, along with its coupe variant. The sedan would have been first shown in Geneva before that. As for today we can have a glance at these spy shots of the 2010 E-Class which show a bit less of that camo. For the first time we can see the car's true, undisguised rear lights.

Mercedes is going the current trend of round-edged rectangular tailpipes it seems. The roofline appears more as well, as well as more rear end. The E-Class Estate grows in length and width, meaning more space, especially rear space. An improved AIRMATIC suspension is to be offered, and possibly the still-being-developed myCOMAND vehicle-to- vehicle communication system.

It will share the same engines as its sedan sibling, namely petrol and diesel, turbocharged and naturally aspirated. Possibly a hybrid will make its way into the lineup. No Mercedes-Benz range is complete without a powerful AMG version whose power figures decimate those of its opposition, so wait for this one to enter the market.
