2017 Mercedes E-Class leaked ahead of Detroit debut

We have our first unofficial look at the new Mercedes E-Class.

Mercedes-Benz wasn't scheduled to lift the veil on its redesigned 2017 E-Class until next week's Detroit auto show, but an internet leak has provided us with an early look at the automaker's mid-size luxury sedan.

The 2017 E-Class is about what you'd expect, borrowing most of its exterior design cues from the larger S-Class and smaller C-Class. The front of the new E-Class features a large grille, sleek headlights with LED accents and a choice of several different bumper treatments.

The new E-Class, which was leaked via Carscoops, retains its classic three-box shape, but the long-hood short-deck treatment is more exaggerated than before. The rear of the E-Class sports LED taillights and dual exhaust outlets.

The interior of the new E-Class, which Mercedes has already shown, closely mirrors that of the S-Class flagship. The highlight of the E-Class' cabin is a new twin-screen setup with no partition between the LCD readouts.

Technical details on the 2017 E-Class remain a mystery at this point, but we should be given access to a full spec sheet within the next few days.
