Here’s A Peek At The 2020 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Which Was Supposed To Debut At Geneva

The facelifted executive sedan from Mercedes-Benz will come with a hybrid powertrain


  • The facelifted Mercedes-Benz E-Class will come with a new plug-in hybrid powertrain.
  • It will get a sharper looking headlamp but retain the trademark eyebrow-like LED DRLs.
  • The interior is expected to come with the familiar twin-screen layout.
  • It is expected to launch in India by the end of 2020.

Mercedes-Benz has teased the facelifted 2020 E-Class ahead of its debut. The E-Class, one of Mercedes’ popular luxury cars, will also feature a new plug-in hybrid powertrain as confirmed by Mercedes’ earlier teaser released in January.  The updated E-Class was supposed to make its debut at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show which has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 coronavirus.


The latest teaser reveals the 2020 E-Class’ sharper headlamps with eyebrow-like LED DRLs, a design trait that is now common in all Mercedes cars. The teaser also suggests that the tristar hood ornament could make a comeback. Based on earlier spy shots, it’s quite evident that the facelifted E-Class will retain the same profile as before. However, the rear end gets redesigned tail lamps that are sleeker than before.

Although Mercedes is yet to reveal the cabin of the 2020 E-Class, we expect it to be similar to the current model with the twin-screen layout.


In terms of features, one could expect Merc’s MBUX infotainment system, connected car technology, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, four-zone climate control, ventilated and heated seats, powered front seats as well as air suspension. Expected safety features include 8 airbags, ABS with EBD, front and rear parking sensors, a 360-degree camera, electronic stability control and a whole host of driver-assist systems.  


The 2020 Mercedes-Benz E-Class will be offered with a hybrid powertrain as well as regular petrol and diesel engine options, the specifications for which are yet to be revealed. Will the new hyrbid powertrain make it to India? We certainly hope so as it will help the carmaker meet the country’s CAFE (corporate average fuel efficiency) regulations, which are set to get more stringent in the future.   


The E-Class is Mercedes’ best-selling car in India and we expect the latest iteration to come sooner than later. When launched, it’ll lock horns with the Audi A6 and the BMW 5 Series.
