Is This The 2016 Mercedes Benz E-Class?
Mercedes-Benz’s current best-selling E-Class model has been on sale since the year 2010 and in 2014 it was given a much needed major update. In true Mercedes tradition, we will see the next generation of this luxurious sedan introduced as the 2017 model which means it will be unveiled in the next few months.
The new E-Class will ride on Mercedes’ modular MRA platform, which debuted in the C-Class and has since made its way into the new compact SUV, the GLC. This means the new E-Class will be lighter, more rigid and more efficient than the current one; the MRA platform makes extensive use of lightweight materials such as aluminum and can also accept alternative powertrains. Autonomous driving technology is also a key element of the MRA platform. Autonomous systems more advanced than anything we’ve seen yet on a production car will feature in the new E-Class.
