2016 Mercedes Benz E-Class New Sketch Shows its Design Aspects

2016 mercedes-benz e-class

Mercedes Benz is getting ready for a brand new range of vehicles and they will be showcasing the 2016 E-Class at the Detroit Auto Show this year.

Before the official reveal, the company has released a sketch version to show how the end product might look like. While seeing a car for the first time through a pencil sketch is definitely not the suggested way, this is a good way to preview things the designers had in mind before we get to see the vehicle in all metal.

The interior design of the upcoming E-Class is expected to be inspired and borrowed from the S-Class model. In the sketch, it is evident that the car looks a lot like the BMW 5 series and is going to pose a tough competition to one of the popular offerings from the BMW brand. The roofline is totally swooping which adds to its sporty looks and the side is incorporated with new, deep creases to add to its splendor.

In the recent past, Mercedes released a teaser video to show how the interiors of the E-Class and the design process their team underwent to get the job done. One of the unique features of the new car is that it has two different displays in the infotainment system to make it easier to access music and other functions. Besides, Mercedes has designed it in such a way that the driver could access it anytime without difficulty.

Named the Mercedes Comand Infotainment system, it allows the driver to choose between three different themes. The Classic, Sport and the Progressive each with a different set of adjustments that have significant impact on the driving experience. It also changes the content that is displayed on the screen according to the mode in which you have the car set in.

With such an innovative idea, the 2016 Mercedes Benz E-Class also features touchscreen controls as well as buttons mounted on the steering wheel allowing the driver to make changes at any point. It also supports Android Auto from Google and Apple’s Car Play functionality. It supports USB connectivity and even SD cards to listen to music off the devices.

The company in their press statement said that the interior design of the E-Class is at least two generations ahead and will be a huge step for those who wanted to buy the next car in the series. We will see more of it at the Detroit show.

2016 Mercedes Benz E-Class Coupe Spy Pictures Showcase Exterior Changes

The 2016 Mercedes Benz E-Class Coupe has been spotted on the road and as expected it is highly camouflaged, but some of the exterior changes are obvious that no one can help but notice it.

The upcoming E-Class is the car which Mercedes expects to help them take down industry leaders like Audi A5 and the BMW 6 Series vehicles. While the former offering is a good car, it is yet to be widely accepted by commuters and doesn’t have the brand name that BMW or Audi has. The luxury automobile manufacturer is ready to change this once and for all.

Expected to go on sale towards the end of 2016, the 2016 Mercedes Benz E-Class is now being tested on the roads, which has yielded these spy shots. With more than a year to go before its official launch, it is evident that the manufacturer doesn’t want anyone to know the changes they have made to the design of the car. It was extremely camouflaged in every corner which made it difficult to spot the design changes.

However, there are some that just can’t be hidden. One among them is the sloping roofline, which seamlessly tapers to the rear of the car. The designs are nothing new to boast about, because Mercedes has already implemented them in the newly launched C-Class coupe and the S-Class coupe.

Every new generation vehicle from the manufacturer is integrated on the proprietary MRA platform and the new E-class will be no different. The car will use four-cylinder petrol engines in their entry level trim line variant while a 2.0-liter diesel engine model will also be made available for buyers. Apart from these two offerings, the 2016 Mercedes Benz E-Class Coupe will be available with a 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel which is expected to be priced higher because of the increased horsepower.

Apart from these models, Mercedes Benz is gearing up to launch a plug-in hybrid version of the E350e. In this particular model, the 2.0-liter petrol engine will be integrated to an electric motor, but there is no word on whether such a hybrid will make its way to the Coupe as well.

The spy pictures reveal very little about the vehicle. The wait is going to be longer or at least until a huge auto expo takes place. Mercedes Benz is expected to make their presence felt at the upcoming Detroit auto show and if they take time to discuss the E-Class Coupe, there is a possibility to know more about the car’s features and pricing.

Mercedes Benz E-Class to be Used by Top Government Diplomats in India

Mercedes Benz is the leading luxury brand in the globe and is always associated with top officials because of the exquisite appeal it provides.

The Ministry of External Affairs in India has decided to buy 55 E-Class cars from the company to make it easier for the top diplomats to commute in the country.

According to a recent news update, it has been confirmed that the ministry has placed an order for the 55 vehicles as mentioned above and Mercedes Benz will be considering them as an exclusive order. It will not only have the default safety and comfort features incorporated into it, but will also have special additions designed to make it easier for the ministers to communicate with the headquarters when travelling. The cars are being purchased to meet the travelling requirements of select ministers, head of States, the President and the Prime Minister.

Ever since the Narendra Modi government was formed in India, the country has been adopting a couple of new policies never seen before. Lot of them are similar to the practices followed by top diplomats around the globe, especially in the United States and China. The American president uses a specially made limousine to travel and a similar trend will now be followed in India by its Prime Minister.

Speaking about the government requirement, Roland Folger, CEO of Mercedes Benz in India said that the head of states around the globe consider their car to be luxurious and safe for travel. “The reason why top diplomats choose our vehicle is that it acts as a prestige symbol wherever they go. We have developed such an important clientele around the globe and proud to host India this year. Choosing the E-class is a wise choice because it is one of the best in our offerings and is an ideal product that tops the luxury car segment in India”, he added.

Mercedes Benz E-Class has already sold over 33,000 units in the country. The one that the Ministry of India plans to purchase is the diesel variant powered by a 2.2 liter diesel engine which has 201 bhp and 500 Nm of peak torque. It uses a 7G tronic plus automatic transmission system and reaches 100 kmph in just 7.5 seconds despite its heavy build. Additional features found in it include intensity control, electric sun blinds, rear crash structure and dedicated air vent for rear seaters to maintain an even temperature.

2016 Mercedes Benz E-Class Revealed in Amazing New Pictures, Tech Details Out

The manufacturer is determined to pull the car out of the ageing situation it is in at the moment. The 2016 Mercedes Benz E-Class high tech car is a great addition to the line-up and if one has to go by the pictures available, it’s definitely got the potential to revolutionize sales.

With fresh designs, integrated technology and performance, the C-Class as well as the S-Class are already ahead in terms of sales. But, when the new E-Class gets launched, it’s going to be a phenomenal victory for the company. They have already witnessed great sales with the model which has recorded over 13 million vehicles around the globe.

Mercedes claims that the upcoming E-class is going to be the most technologically advanced car they have ever produced. The company is gearing up to showcase it for the first time at the Detroit Motor Show scheduled to take place in the month of January, 2016. The first launch will be the saloon, then an Estate, two door coupe and the convertible. The launches will be spread throughout the year so that their sales don’t affect the other models.

The exterior of the 2016 Mercedes E-Class features a box-like design combined with fluid interior panels and brand new headlamps. The shape of the lamps will not be rounded but sharper so as to give a stylish, sporty look for the car. Maximum brightness will be rendered by 84 individual LED lights integrated into the headlamp which is much higher than the 24 found in the current generation E-class model.

The car is built on the MRA architecture because of which the designers are able to provide better headroom and legroom of the passengers. The upcoming version of the E-class will be longer and wider in shape, contributing to its stability and overall comfort level irrespective of the type of road you drive it in. The interiors have also been revamped to make them more attractive than ever. The traditional instrument cluster is mounted on the dash and there are two high definition digital displays. It is expected that these panels will be integral in allowing the driver to experience the most advanced control technology and safety features.

Intelligent Drive Tech will be an exclusive feature for the 2016 Mercedes E-Class. The technology will make use of the array of sensors and cameras mounted on the vehicle to provide easy updates to the drive for hassle free driving. We hope it receives semi-autonomous driving as well.

Next Generation 2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Will Look and Feel Premium

Mercedes-Benz is already working on a new 2016 E-Class model that should debut early in 2016. Up until now, nobody outside of Mercedes-Benz knew how the car would look or what the performances will be.

However, a rendered image, courtesy of RM Design shows what might be in store for the next generation of the E-Class. Take the picture with a grain of salt, as nothing is certain. However, some features are already rumored, as well as the possible engines and performances of the car.

Let’s start from the design that will experience some changes and tweaks. We have previously seen some of the spy shots of the new E-class. The pictures clearly show resemblance in the lines to the already announced C and S class. The 2016 E-Class will ride on the same MRA platform that has a goal to increase the size and lose weight. Expect the next generation of the sedan to be bigger, but lighter.

When it comes to the power and performance, rumors are that the new 2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class will offer several engines. Some of the new units that experts believe will make its way to the E-class are the 2.9 liter V6 diesel engine that produces 313hp and a 400hp quad turbocharged engine.

Some of the biggest strengths of the upcoming E-Class are in the field of technology. The next generation should make the driving experience as comfortable and as luxurious as possible. The 2016 E-Class will feature several technologies that will make the driving experience semi-autonomous.

The biggest innovation is the “Car-to-X” feature, a new communication system that Mercedes-Benz has developed for communication between vehicles. The idea behind the system is that it should reduce the risk for collision, especially at junctions and around tight bends. The system will vastly improve the driving experience when visibility of traffic is reduced.

The next generation of the luxury sedan should also incorporate a number of sensors that will improve safety, starting from a stereo camera facing forward, as well as rear and side camera sensors. The company will also install the Intelligent Drive System into the E-Class. The system ensures that the vehicle is always at an appropriate distance, even when driving up to 200km/h. Other safety measures include the Active brake Assist system and the Evasive Steering Assist technology. The brake system helps with braking whenever the system detects slow moving traffic. The steering assist technology, on the other hand, completely takes control of the car when the system notices a pedestrian.

Regarding the release date, initial reports are that the E-Class could make its debut in January, during the NAIAS show. However, we can never be certain and considering that the vehicle is still early in development, the scheduled date might be delayed a month or two.
