Mercedes E-Class is on the verge of getting an early facelift. Carscoops.com’s spy photographers have caught on camera for the first time the mid-life nip and tuck changes dedicated to the Mercedes W213.
Exclusive images show the new Mercedes E-Class not only gets new bumpers but also brand new headlights and grille, inspired by those of the larger GLE and the latest CLS.
The most noticeable change seems to concern the new headlights design. The new units mimic closely the ones which made their debut on the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLE and feature a new LED daytime running lights.
When the E-Class Facelift debuts in the autumn of 2019 – presumably at the IAA, not just these small optical changes will be seen. The interior will also get a major overhaul with the dual-display arrangement familiar from the S-Class remaining intact, but gaining the new rectangular touch and click controller, as well as the touchscreen functionality of the GLE. The new cockpit will also be offered on the E-Class Coupé.
After the new MBUX infotainment system has been grafted onto the new A-Class and the GLE, the new E-Class must offer the same level of technology from 2019 onwards.
On the engine front, the Mercedes E-Class 2020 model year is unlikely to change significantly. The current units will be adjusted in terms of performance and emissions. The 2.0-liter diesel will live on, while being joined by the recently unveiled E 300 h diesel-plug-in hybrid variant. The Mercedes-AMG E 63 will most likely get a timid power boost too.
