A new prototype of the next-generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class has just been spied during its testing. This time the test mule was wearing almost no camouflage and it is particularly easy to observe its overhauled design.
The new E-Class looks very similar to the existing C-Class and S-Class models. It also makes use of a similar grille as well as headlights reminiscent from its sedan brethren and a selection of other current Mercedes-Benz E-Class models. This particular prototype is also riding on a set of interesting multi-spoke wheels.
Thanks to two prominent body creases running from the front of the side skirt to the rear wheel arch the car becomes particularly eye-catching. The taillights also bare obvious similarities to existing E-Class models while the bumper and chrome tailpipes are also very familiar. Thanks to the new underpinnings alone, the 2016 E-Class is expected to weigh about 100 kg less than the outgoing model.
