Default ConceptFASCINATION

As can be seen, the Fascination, which is powered by a 204-hp, 2.2L BlueTEC diesel engine, has an unusual body style, which is best described as a two-door wagon. Mercedes says it's based on a future E-Class coupe, though given the liberal use of the word "coupe" these days, it's anyone's guess as to what sort of vehicle it will actually be. The Fascination's front end sports the E-Class' signature dual-headlight style -- the lamps are LED units -- melded with elements of the brand's present corporate face. There are also LED foglamps built into the chrome strip in the lower front fascia, which also runs across the car's perimeter. It's a serious possibility that the front end of the Fascination is a hint at what the next-generation E-Class will look like up front. Since the current E-Class is getting quite long in the tooth, that car should arrive before too long.
From the side, the Fascination resembles the R-Class more than any Mercedes wagon, particularly the sloping shape of the windows. The resemblance ends there, however, as the style goes off into its own direction. The doors are coupe-like in length, the door handles extend and there are no B- or C-pillars. In all, it evokes visions of a stretched version of the defunct C230 hatchback. At the rear, there's a relatively small trapezoidal tailgate with a tiny rear window and two-piece taillights similar to those of the Mazda CX-9, with four exhaust pipes integrated into the fascia. Bottom line, it's pretty weird, but it can't be called ugly, either. On top of that, with just a few photos, it's difficult to properly assess the size and proportions of the vehicle, which appears to sit high above the ground due to its large, concept-style wheels. And in case you were wondering, yes, they are calling it a coupe.
