Mercedes is working on its new car of 2017 model year
The present model of the Mercedes E-class was introduced four years ago. This year, the car has been updated. Thus, according to the carmaker, next changes will be noticed in the next generation by 2016 and the model will be launched as a car of 2017.
Looking at the prototype of a future novelty, we find the car has gotten wider wheel arches and more stretched hood. The novelty is longer by several centimeters than the new C-class L developed for the Chinese auto market.
The new E-class is built on the brand’s new platform MRA, which was firstly used in the new C-class of 2015 model year. So, owing to this platform, the novelty is planned to be more rigid and lighter than the present version. The MRA platform includes lightweight materials like aluminum and alternative power units.
The new E-Class is planned to have a six-cylinder in-line engine. Certainly, the novelty will be available with three-cylinder and four-cylinder engines, too. The nine-speed automatic gearbox is the standard.
In spite of it has not been confirmed but the novelty will have a linger wheelbase than its previous version.
The novelty will be available in different variants: convertible, sedan, wagon and coupe.
