Mercedes-Benz E-class sedan was last upgraded in 2009 and even now it is on-sale in both international and Indian markets. On this gap, BMW has launched updated version of its 5-series sedan last-year and so did Audi when they launched new A6 sedan.
If its German duo rivals Audi and BMW have their updated sedans, can Mercedes-Benz stay behind without upgrading theirs? No. So it was about time Merc designers showed some love to the long forgotten E-class sedan. After about 4 years of duty internationally, Mercedes will give the E-class a mild facelift. The 2014 Mercedes E-class is expected to be launched sometime in early-2013.
This latest renderings comes from the folks over at TopSpeed and shows a pretty good interpretation of the next S-Class as it incorporates some of Mercedes-Benz’s latest design cues. The major changes seen in the 2014 model is a return to two headlights from the unloved four, while a new front bumper, grille and bonnet will give the E-class greater presence. The rear door skins, wings and tail lamps are also new.
On the inside, the 2014 E-class retains the basic fascia architecture of the current car, while efforts have been made to improve perceived quality. Even higher-grade materials, more supportive seats, new instrument graphics and switchgear, and an improved multimedia system have all been adopted. The new safety features are likely to include revised Distronic cruise control and Brake Assist, both with anti-collision systems.
