STUTTGART, GERMANYWhen the doors open at the Paris Motor Show nextmonth, Mercedes-Benz will be giving everyone a sneak peek of the new E-Classfront-end styling. No, not in the form of the new E-Class itself, which will beunveiled at a later date, but in the ConceptFASCINATION, an attractive shootingbrake concept based on the upcoming E-Class Coupe’s architecture and featuringthe new E’s front-end styling, according to www.autoblog.com. 

Gone are the round headlamps, and in their place arenew “rhomboid” lamps that, on the show car at least, incorporate fiber-opticdriving lights. The grille will likely be the same one seen on the new E Coupe,while the sedan is expected to have the traditional grille-and-hood-ornamentcombo instead. Power comes from Mercedes’ new 2.2L, 204-horsepower BlueTEC(with AdBlue) four-cylinder diesel, which will make its production debut thisfall in the Euro-market C250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY Super Verbose Prime Editionsedan.

TheConceptFASCINATION’s cargo area is covered in wood, and features such show-cargoodies as a folding glass table that can be pulled rearward, a humidor, achilled compartment, and storage for binoculars and a camera, according to www.autoblog.com.
