A significant number of Mercedes E Class press and presentation cars were captured on camera up close and personal by YouTuber “walkoART.”

We saw the 2016 E Class under the glamorous spotlight of the Detroit Auto Show earlier this month and now we bring footage that provides a better look at Daimler’s midsize contender. The matryoshka doll design theme implemented by Mercedes is obvious on the new E and we will agree with those that say it suits this model the best. A little bit of differentiation would have been preferred, but this seems to be design trend nowadays in the car industry, especially in the premium segment.

While the exterior is more C than S, the interior cabin is the other way around as Mercedes decided to go with the dashboard layout of its flagship model for the new E. Most of the cars seen here are E200 and E220d models sharing the same trim level and wheel design, with a few exceptions.

We have also attached two additional videos showing lots of SLC (SLK facelift) and GLS (GL facelift) units filmed in the same location. It's a parking lot adjacent to the factory Mercedes has in Sindelfingen, Germany where it makes a multitude of models.
