The 2010 Mercedes E-Class features bold styling that separates it from
the previous generations of the E-Class. The double-housing headlights
have returned, but the friendly, round lights found on the previous
E-Class sedans have been replaced with more angular, aggressive
headlights. The aesthetic changes to the 2010 E-Class give the car a
much sportier look, but more importantly the sleek new form gives the
E-Class sedans a drag coefficient of just 0.25, making it the most
aerodynamic car in its class. Many of the design cues appear to be
taken from the S-Class models, with the low rear roofline are and the
long sweeping rear glass.

models, are powered by a 3.5L V6 making 268 horsepower and 258lb-ft of
