Our colleagues from Auto-Presse have managed to put their hands on a full picture gallery with the upcoming 2016 Mercedes E Class. As you may have read, the new generation model will be showcased during the 2016 Detroit Motor Show, the event which will kick off in a few days.
On the outside the new 2016 Mercedes E Class features a pretty familiar look. The front part is dominated by the massive radiator grille which is now flanked by a set of sweptback headlights. We also see two large air intakes integrated in the bumper and a more aggressive lip spoiler. At the rear end, the most important piece is the new set of sleek taillights. We also have noticed the air diffuser and the dual exhaust system.
According to out German colleagues, the new 2016 Mercedes E Class is 93.8-inches long and has an impressive drag-coefficient of 0.23.
At the launch, the 2016 Mercedes E Class will come with the new developed 2.0 liter diesel unit that offers 195 horsepower and can return 60.3 miles per gallon (3.9 liters per 100 km) on average. The German model will also be available with a 2.0 liter petrol unit on the E200 variant.
Later on the 2016 Mercedes E Class will come in the E350e plug-in hybrid form that combines a 2.0 liter petrol unit and an electric motor for a total of 279 HP. With all the details we will come after the official unveiling.Source: Auto Presse
