Scheduled to official debut at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show later this year, we caught our first glimpse of the production-ready 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class last month when it broke cover in a series of official photographs. This month, we’re able to add to the 2010 E-Class’ portfolio a few leaked scans of the new brochure, which give us a much clearer view of the redesigned front and rear fascia. Based on the Mercedes-Benz conceptFASCINATION vehicle, the new W212 E-Class has been completely redesigned from the inside out and pulls design components from both the S- and C-Class. Aggressive and decidedly more angular, the new E-Class seems to adopt more of the classic “status symbol” design and, we’re pleased to note, also finally managed to lose those excruciatingly ugly round headlights.

Tech-wise, the 2010 E-Class has been equipped with all the gadgets we’ve been teased with over the past year, including a new COMAND interface, eye-movement sensors (used primarily to detect when a driver is falling asleep at the wheel), traffic sign identification, lane-departure warnings, road condition sensors, and a highly advanced electronic stability control system.
Although the pictures below are of a slightly grainy, low resolution, we expect more images to drop the closer we near to the Frankfurt unveiling.
