Sorry that im a little late with this one. But I really wanted to write about this car because I genuinely love Mercedes, i think they make some of the best looking medium - range priced saloon cars on the market. So of course I was excited when I heard that the pictures of the new E class were released.
And then, BOOOOOM! disappointment hit me like a train. As you can see the design is basically a medium size C-class with some small changes (flashy bumper, cooler headlights, wheels, etc) and its really starting to pee me off, by the year its getting more difficult to recognize these cars. Im sure by 2030 every merc and bmw will look the same; the only thing that will see them apart is the prop rod or something. The job of a car spotter will suddenly become as difficult as a rocket scientist.
Look, I understand they need to cut costs, I get that but it means making cars the same why bother? The sales are definitely going to decrease on this one. Dont get me wrong, the car in general looks awesome but unfortunately itís identical to a car around £8,000 cheaper than it. Which is a very large jump, what makes them think people are going to pay that? I know I personally would jump in my old, E class and head straight to BMW to get the 5 series.
I havent seen a great deal of people who are to but hurt about this, but I think itís important we pick up on this, or it will be prop rod spotting time.
These are just my brief thoughts on the exterior; I havenít got enough time to write anything else at the moment. Follow me on Twitter and like me on Facebook:
Thanks & enjoy the pics.
