I think the interior looks awesome, the new facelift is a little hard for me to digest. I prefer the previous 2 generations. And for anyone who thinks that any mercedes interior "feels cheap" go check the interior condition of used cars. I've noticed that mercedes cars wear off better than any of their competitors and perhaps even their subordinates.

Dissapointed. Everything is rounded down, no defined lines no nothing. Makes it look smaller then it is, and starts to look like Japaneese or something with all that roundiness. Old one was more defined and agressive and classy at the same time. Don't know who will acutally buy this instead of old one. Really not looking forward to new c-class

what's the attraction for current owners to change to this, except the C-class like headlights?

I see three, not two, front end treatments! The brown saloon shows the Luxury nose/front bumper/side skirts/rear end, while the red estate shows the Sport nose/AMG front bumper/side skirts/rear end, but the silver saloon appears to combine the Sport nose with the Luxury front bumper/side skirts and what appears to be a Sport rear end. None of the three cars display AMG badges. All three cars display the great influence of the F800 Style Concept. I especially like the Luxury bumper's biomorphic/skeletal openings and am thrilled that the Sport nose's bonnet shutlines are improved to eliminate the catfish look of the current CLS. If we're very lucky, the E-Class Coupe will lose its fixed side glass forever and the estate will regain a completely flat floor with the rear seats folded--both would signal a return to proper Mercedes-Benz standards.

I believe that seating arrangement will be an option.

Hopefully now they can loose that small 3rd window in the C-pillar for the coupé version.

Looks so outdated. Dashboard is from old Toyota Land Cruiser.

I didn't like at first, but it grew on me. Especially the classic one, the brown one here, is I think the best version. Interior is better also... However, I didn't like the other version where the front just isn't matching the rest... The real E-Class is the classic one.

so contrary to all the previous reports, i see that there are no power gains to be had of the E 350 and E 550. interesting though about the E 550..it now uses a turbo 5.5 v8 or is that a typo in the press release? power figures are exactly the same as the outgoing 4.6 v8..can't really judge the looks until i see it in person.

It must be a typo. I see no reason for them to use a thirstier n/a 5.5 v8 instead of the "old" turbo 4.6 v8. My opinion is that overall this facelift is a good improvement, but not very impressive. I want to see the AMG 4matic version.

They're going to have a 4matic 63? I didn't get the memo, but if that were true Awesome!

although i like the headlight design and what lines they've put in there, the overall look of the front of the car is not as good as the now relaced version. it looks just warped around there. before, it looked more agresive, more concentrated on going. dislike the new e class facelift

The redesigned rear wheel arches make the car looks well proportioned.

The dash board really looks outdated

I wholeheartedly agree. Even the Japanese and Koreans have a better understanding of how an luxury car's interior should be crafted. Now watch how the Merc fanboys going to thumb me down (again).

i think i like it, the silver one looks good but i i still want to see it in the metal or on video....removing the rear huanch has made it look more like a big c class though

Why'd they have to go and spoil it for? They've made it look more like a C-Class and even a bit Volvo with the heavily tapered front end look.

Really wanna see in the metal, looks good... Love the headlights and tail lights... Still a classy car, looking fresh.

I never liked the E-class, and this is not an improvement at all!

according to the official Daimler website, the e400 is powered by a 3.0 bi turbo. They didn't mention that it is a hybrid though

E400 HYBRID Sedan: electric motor and direct-injection 3.5-liter V6: 27 hp + 302 hp, 184 lb-ft + 273 lb-ft From Mercedes-Benz USA. It's mentioned in the first press release.

A new addition is the six-cylinder engine, which is being offered for the first time as the E 400 with biturbo drive. With its performance potential and enormously high levels of torque at low engine speeds, this engine sets new standards in the six-cylinder sector and also meets the EU6 emissions level.

You are correct. On Daimler's website they only list the regular E400 while on MB USA they have only the E400 Hybrid. Most likely, both of them will be available.

interior still no match for A6, 5-Series, XF, or even previous generation E-classes (W124, W210, W211). I cannot believe how cheap it looks. no sense of occasion.

Cheap? it doesnt look cheap and before you say its no match for the A6, 5-Series or XF go look at the 2012 JD powers results. The E-class finished 2nd behind the XF in its class. It beat the 5 series and the A6 quite considerably. Also the E-class finished 5th over all. SO it might 'look' cheap but it is a properly made car.

to me it looks cheap. I never said that it IS cheap. The quality of interior materials are certainly on par with A6, 5-Series, XF - I am griping about the interior design, it does not ooze quality. Sorry, thumb me down all you like - this interior looks cold, sombre and "industrial" - I simply expected more from a luxury manufacturer like Mercedes. It is quite sad that you bring up JD Power results, which is not the point here - "sense of occasion" cannot be measured by measureable standards...

You actually took anything JD power had to say seriously? How sad.

xoff, i see where you are coming from. i am unimpressed with the e class interior as well. the thing that bothers me the most is the comand module that mercedes uses across the range. it looks extremely cheap and out of place in a luxury car, along with all the hard angles that are incorporated into the design. OTHERWISE, the interior is okay, and it is hard not to appreciate the ambient lighting among other details.

You said you cant believe how cheap it looks. Its not sad that i bring up the JD Power results, you cant say a car looks cheap if its built better than its rivals. And also the BMW 5 series has an equally sombre interior, the Audi's interior looks like every other Audi which is becomming dull now, both lack a sense of occasion!

I drive one everyday in busy traffic, city and highway. The interior of this car is functionally and elegant. It's also very comfortable and reduces fatigue with orthopedically correct seats and visually easy to read instruments when you only have a mille second to glance at them. Cheers to MB for their mastery at delivering a car so carefully thought out for people who use the car to commute, not just for Sunday drives. The XF is great if you don't work for a living and wear seersucker all day. It won't hold up to the punishment of a family of 4. The 5 series is waaay too complicated to use though the drive is nice. The Audi interior tries to hard to be something its not. I've had the W124 and the W210. The W210 interior had zero "quality". You obviously don't know these cars that well. Of the three you mentioned the W124 is the best though it was the least high tech. It's interior was indestructible.
