2010 Mercedes E-Class leaks out

Wed, 10 Dec 2008 00:00:00 -0800

The interweb is a mine of information, much of it less than convincing, but you can be sure that there is little under the sun that won’t find its way there. And so it is with what certainly appear to be real images of the 2010 Mercedes E-Class.

There have been spy shots of the new E-Class around for some time. All have carried a fair bit of disguise, allowing dimensions to be seen, but detail well hidden. But late yesterday images appeared on a Mercedes site, and members of the forum at German Car Zone posted them there.

The new E-Class, which is likely to début at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2009, is a handsome looking beast. The more recent Mercedes styling themes are following through from the latest S-Class (which is in itself quite derivative of the Maybach – although with more visual appeal). Gone are the familiar Mercedes headlights, replaced with a more refined double pair which seem to incorporate LEDs – the German ‘thing’ of the moment.

We can expect a fair bit of new technology on the 2010 E-Class, including automatic sign-reading, night vision and a clever little device to monitor eye movement to check if you’re dozing off. At this rate Mercedes cars won’t need a driver by 2020!

There will undoubtedly be a raft of engines, with a big focus on the economy end. But, unless the world ends before the E-Class officially débuts, you can be sure there will be an M5 chasing super-barge. But will it have the V8? If things run true to form it could well have a turbo-charged V6 instead.

To be discovered.
