The 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe has been caught in the clear -- almost nude -- with just a little tape around the lights and decklid at a company presentation in Mallorca. We'll have to spend some time with that sculpted flank in person just to make sure, but in pictures, the former E-Class and CLK have successfully come together in the new E-Class sedan and E-Class Coupe. It could also be the third best translation of the design language that began with the S-Class (the C-Class is second), leaving the CL-Class a distinctive-yet-distant fourth. We'd imagine the E-Class Coupe is set for a New York or Geneva Auto Show unveiling, where we can inspect it thoroughly.

      I stopped being a fan of Mercedes design about 20 years ago, but I really think they're getting worse.

      While I don't agree with the Accord comments... the CTS Coupe does look WAY better than this. The current CLK is elegant, a little feminine but still elegant. And if the interior will resemble the one in the new E, it'll be too angular for such a luxury car.

      So....now the average person won't be able to tell the difference between this and the 100k CL550...........nice job MB.

      The CLK is 10-15k more than the C sedan. Will this (ELK?) be 10-15k more than the E sedan?

      I just don't get this.....is it a competitor or the BMW 6 series or their own CL? Because I can't see anybody choosing this over the BMW 6 series.

      This doesn't move design on one single step. To me it is dull without being interesting, but to its ultra conservative buyer spectrum I'm sure it'll do fine. Mercs used to be very distinctive, very strong looking, and very handsome. Now they are a bit bland and, well, ordinary. But they keep selling...
      • 6 Years Ago
      Still hideous from every angle especially the "last generation Chevy Malibu rear quarter panels!-and to think MB will have it's hand out asking people 55-75,000 dollars for this? I'm in the market so this has helped solidify my decision to go with BMW.

      It feels like the current generation of MBs don't look "stately" anymore. They took the aggression a little bit too far and now they all look like Lexus designs on steroids. What happened to the conservative elegance that Mercedes Benz used to represent?

      The E is for Equus .... as in Hyundai Equus.

      MB designers have to be on drugs to produce the garbage they do.

      The all new Mercedes E class coupe is really appealing with such chiseled aerodynamic body.No doubt it resembles somehow with CLK550.But this one looks more stunning.Merc has really expertise in manufacturing coupe. http://www.cardekho.com/carmodels/Maruti/Maruti_Alto_800

      The current gen is classic and elegant, and this one is much more masculine and in your face. I like both for different reasons. Nice job MB!

      I am not digging that rear fender... thing. Bentley did it much better on the Continental GT.

      As for the wheels, well, I just hope those shown are just to get this car from A to B during testing.

      Wow... that rear end is really, uh, boring. I almost mistook it for a Hyundai Elantra...

      Oh well... I can't afford one of these huge cars anyway.

        I don't like the box look either. I prefer rounded and flared arch fenders.

        Funny tho, it does kind of look like an Accord.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I'm not liking it. It looks more like a coupe version of a 20k midsized sedan than it does an expensive luxury vehicle.
