Likely to feature an S Class-inspired design, the 2016 Mercedes E Class is expected to grow in size.

Based on the MRA (Mercedes Rear wheel drive Architecture), the new E Class is also expected to grow is size, in order to increase the gap between itself and the new, larger than before C Class.

The interior will adopt circular AC vents, a new COMAND system, and will benefit from the increase in luxury and space. On the engines front, Mercedes is likely to replace the V6 engines with inline-6 units on standard models, 4-litre V8 instead of the current 5.5-litre V8 on the E63, and a hybrid version is expected as well.
