New Mercedes-Benz E-class

Hello, New Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Daimler Chrysler is about to give a facelift to the E-Class model which has been on the market since 2003. It is due for launch at the New York Motor Show next month.

These photos are showing both a station wagon and a sedan prototype in full showroom trim during a shooting of a commercial. The restyling includes new head and taillights, front grille and a revised front bumper with new fog lights.

The engine line up for the revamped E-Class will be even more significant than the styling changes. The 5.5 litre V8 fitted to the recently revised SL 500 will replace the old 5.0 litre, and the E 350 benefits from a small increase in power.

I love the look of the E-Class, but I think they could have made a few more noticeable changes to the styling....even if it is just a facelift!

Not liking it, I'm not a MB fan, all the vehicles look very bland less the CLS and SLK.

Much rather have a BMW.

I know, but the point I was trying to make was that you guys all say how boring, bland and dull it looks, where really it's supposed to just look like the pre-facelift, only fresher. If it was a new generation E-Class, I could see your points. This looks no less bland than a current 5-Series in my opinion!
