Development on the new Mercedes E-Class coupe has begun.
The German automaker is expected to announce the 2017 Mercedes E-Class sedan later this year before its auto show debut in January, meaning development on the four-door version is nearly complete. This is the first time AutoGuide.com‘s spy photographers have caught the next E-Class coupe testing and it’s starting to look like a blend between the C- and S-Class coupe models.
Considering the sedan version will debut later this year, expect the coupe model to follow a year later. Following that, the German automaker will likely take the covers off the convertible variant.
The next-generation Mercedes E-Class is expected to be packed with a host of new safety and technology features that the company is calling “real life safety.” In fact, Mercedes is touting that the new E-Class will be at the top of the lineup in terms of technology, even besting the S-Class until it gets refreshed in spring 2017.
Thankfully we don’t have to wait much longer until the 2017 Mercedes E-Class officially bows and we will get a clearer picture of powerplants and models that will likely be shared across the entire lineup.
