See the Mercedes-Benz E-Class GT Rendering

Mercedes-Benz E-Class Hatchback (1)

A rendering of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class hatchback.

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class definitely received a warm welcome from critics when it was introduced at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Now, in its tenth-generation, the new E-Class certainly never fails to impress with its sensual styling, performance, safety and tech innovations. After all, its maker really pushed their boundaries with the product, calling it as a big leap forward for them.

Among the expected variants of the car that will follow are its the estate and the coupe models. The convertible variant will also come in later, but this is a long shot as of the moment.

A few days ago, automotive artist Theophilus Chin released a rendering of another version of the E-Class. The concept is the hypothetical hatchback model of the range, and he dubbed it as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class GT.

What the artist did was he combined the usual styling of the new E-Class, but he redesigned its rear portion to resemble that of a hatchback. Looking closely, Theophilus Chin adopted some elements of the BMW 5-Series GT too in the rendering.

The artist did a great job with the rendering. However, like what MB World pointed out, the car suffers the similar issues with the design of its rival. Its shape appears to be bulgy and it fails to carry the same sexy appeal found in a Mercedes hatchback like the A-Class.

Also, with the E-Class Estate coming up while already having the GLE SUV and GLE Coupe will make a hatchback model of the E-Class somewhat irrelevant to some customers.
