    Boring butt, not sure why. Looks like we've expected. Don't like the sport grille, prefer the luxury grille.

    Looks alright. The E always gets me for the first year or two, then it looks dated.

    Interested in the reports of a LWB E Maybach.

    A lot nicer than the C Class.

    The exterior renderings are fake. The real car isn't as round and the headlights are off.

    Interior picture is real. Looks good.

    Is that shiny black plastic on the center console? Wasn't Cadillac criticized for using it on its instrument panel?

    I think it's actually genuine Black Lacquer trim. I just can't see them using cheap black plastic when the compact C Class uses real wood.

    Good point, too.

    There is an appreciable difference between plastic and lacquer trims. Don't pass light the same way, don't sound the same, don't feel the same. Touching both tells you all you need to know.

    That would explain how it looks much better than the mildly disguised spy shots. I'm sure it will look okay, just not as slick as this purported render. Heck the C-Class can look pretty good in pictures but out on the road it doesn't look as good. I do expect the E to be better looking than the C just due to it being bigger. The S Class styling cues IMO are not so successful when they shrink them to fit the lower ranks of Mercedes offerings.

    Me like it too! 2016 model? Sure not 2017? When is the release date in 2015 or 2016? and then add a "1" for the model year!

    P.S.

    I just got done looking at the new Lincoln Continental Concept and the rear looks like this E-Class! But I don't know how big the Continental will be 205 inches or more? The E-Class should be around 190 inches long!

    There's another Mercedes model like that (forget which one, I don't pay much attention to Mercedes); they look too flush, almost like painted-on Nascar lights. That said this is a render, so maybe in real life they'll have a bit more depth / definition.

    I really would like to see how Mercedes does the Chassis, if it comes under the CT6 and CTS, I will be impressed.

    Everything Else, Mercedes is at or near the top.
