Mercedes-Benz was hoping to wow us with the debut of the 2017 E-Class and has been dropping teasers in the past week to get everyone amped up. But German website decided to rain on Mercedes' parade by revealing a set of official photos of the next E-Class along.

The photos show the E-Class following in step with the C and S-Class in terms of overall design. The front is primarily C-Class with an aggressive grille and new LED headlights. Around back is S-Class with similar trunk lid design and unique taillights. says the new E-Class rides on a longer wheelbase and overall length has increased by 1.7 inches. We have detailed what the E-Class' interior will have in a previous piece.

As for powertrains, says a range four and six-cylinder engines running on diesel and gasoline will be on offer. There will also be a plug-in hybrid variant called the E350e. Details on the what the U.S. get is unknown. But we would wager that a turbo-four, turbo six-cylinder, turbodiesel-four, and the plug-in hybrid will be the choices.

Has the leak of the next E-Class made you more or less excited?
