2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Exterior Inadvertently Shown In Official Pics

A new generation of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is just around the corner and we can take a better look at it through a handful of blurry, but official, images, released a couple of days ago.

The original photos showed the interior design of the luxury sedan, but taking a close look reveals that the 3-pointed star isn’t keeping its exterior a secret either.

In the first image we can see several generations of the E-Class side by side and the one on the right is the new W213, with its imposing chromed grille and the overall look of the C-Class and S-Class.

Another zoomed in photo reveals the shape of the headlights, with the incorporated LED daytime running lights, and the last one, which is also the clearest, shows the side profile of the four-door sedan, in the standard wheelbase version, that looks almost identical to the one of its smaller sister.

Mercedes-Benz is also developing a stretched variant of the car, which is expected to come close to the S-Class in terms of length, but reports indicate that this will be aimed exclusively for the Chinese market.

The third body style of the new E-Class generation is believed to be the Estate, followed by the two-door coupe, which was already spotted testing recently, and by a convertible version that will join the lineup later on.

The new-gen Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan will be officially presented to the public next month, during the 2015 Detroit Motor Show.

Shout out to Worldcarfans for spotting the images!
