This diesel R-class makes a lot of sense, but the EPA numbers seem very low. I had to go to fueleconomy.gov to verify that they were correct. I easily saw 30+ mpg indicated on my commute home and an average of 24 mpg after a lot of spirited driving and running around town. The new EPA ratings seem to be giving diesel vehicles the short end of the stick.
The next-generation Mercedes Benz E-class has again been spotted in testing but this time the prototype is for the Mercedes Benz E-class'Estate' wagon version. The images were taken near the carmaker's headquarters in Germany and reveal the final shape of the car, with only the finer details being masked by the black camouflage material. These new renderings and spy shots, however, gives us a good indication as to how the final version will look.
We can clearly see the design of the grille and some details on the tail-lights. The next E-Class is expected to debut at next year's Geneva Motor Show before going on sale later that same year as a 2010 model. The wagon 'Estate' variant, meanwhile, should be unveiled at the following Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

If the photos we directed you to yesterday weren't enough to satisfy your desire to see the new Mercedes E-Class Coupe, we've got yet another round that may do the trick this time with the model's side profile completely visible with all but the tiniest of masking. I won't bore you with another synopsis of the E-Class Coupe's styling, seeing as how we've already broached the subject on more than one occasion, but for all you CLK owners wondering what lies in store for the next-generation of the model, you now have yet another remarkably clear vision of what to expect in the coming days.
