The exterior of the 2016 Mercedes E Class loses the sharp styling for a simpler design with less sculpted features. It highlights the middle-ground position between the 2015 Mercedes C Class and 2014 Mercedes S Class. The 2016 Mercedes E Class is, reportedly, 55 mm longer than the outgoing model, and has shorter overhangs to accommodate the stretched wheelbase in a contained overall length.

The engine lineup will comprise of next generation 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel engines (codename – OM654) alongside existing four-cylinder petrol engines. Higher variants will reportedly come with an all new range of 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder turbo engines, and a 4.0-liter bi-turbo V8 option.

The new generation diesel engines are rumored to emit less than 100 grams of CO2 per kilometer. Reports also suggest that most of the variants will have mild-hybrid tech, which pairs a 15-20 kW electric motor for better fuel efficiency.
