Mercedes-Benz E-Class preview

It's hard to tell whether the 'exclusive' pre-launch photos that increasingly spread like wildfire across the Internet are really the result of espionage/carelessness or have been leaked deliberately by the automaker to take advantage of an otherwise slow news week. Either way, here are the first images of the forthcoming Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Judging by these low-resolution press shots it seems the new car has remained faithful to its Concept Fascination precursor, especially in terms of front-end treatment. More sculpted flanks give the E-Class dynamic flair and also bring it in line with the S-Class flagship. The executive sedan will be larger than the current model for improved interior space, but we're less convinced by the huge taillamps, which seem to over-encompass the rear end in a similar fashion to the larger Lexus models.

We'll just have to wait and see what the design looks like in the metal when it is revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The new E-Class coupe (replacing the CLK) is expected to be unveiled at the show, while the wagon and convertible variants will make their debuts at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show.
