Planning a 2010 trip to Stuttgart? This is the taxi that’ll pick you up from the airport. It’ll be a nicer taxi than in recent years, Mercedes is channeling the ‘80s for the new E-Class.
Remember when Mercedes sedans were like rolling blocks of granite, hewn from a quality so peerless that it felt like they would last a lifetime? Well, apparently so do the company’s designers, who are channeling that block-like look for the interior of the 2010 Mercedes E-Class. Gone is the chintzy cheapness of the early 2000s, replaced with simple, rounded two-tone forms and big chunky buttons.
