2017 E-Class Images leaked!

We now have full images of the upcoming 2017 E-class!

As you might have been able to guess, the new E-class looks very similar to the current S-Class and C-Class corporate siblings. Keeping with the centralized look, the car features the one piece headlights, angled tear-drop tail lights, and deep bumper lines of its siblings. While not a very unique look, it still does look excellent and has a lot of poise. The interior features a lot of the same aesthetic found in the S-Class. Two large screens, metal outlined vents, extreme attention to detail.
