Default 2009 E Class

Auto Bild caught the supposedly new E class,
I hope the word "supposedly" plays its role coz its a nice looking car for sure but just not a Mercedes

Is this the real car or computer animated image?
The front lamp design looks like that new lexus GS series. Back once again remind me of the accord/sonata... back is pretty ugly.

It's a photoshop. AutoBild usually has the worst predictions.

Well if this is the New E Class,
There will be an Audi/Jag/BMW parked in our garage in 20xx (Could be earlier if there are problems) when we change.
The above look better, are faster and much better overall.

I thought that even though the front was much more edge-y, it looked slightly peasing, almost old-school-with-a-twist looking. I think that the back looks horrid. Like a very bad Accord or new Sonata.

2009? That's a really long time away. By then everything will have changed - the rear end of the present E-Class is pretty nice and that's the way it'll continue to be. The one pictured here seems to be just another vague prediction.

this is totally non-mercedes styling....seems like the guys have captured the looks/parts of many different cars and parsed them into one picture...as far as the prediction it seems totally untrue!!

the back of the car definately looks like the new sonata and the front headlights dont look the kinds...the guys at the merc design centre would do...but hey who knows 4 years from now..

These pics are not realistic enough.The car will come after too many years then it's hard to make predictions.In 2 or 3 years time it should be possible not no too early.
