The venerable Mercedes-Benz E-Class is about to get a mid-life makeover. Sold in its long wheelbase avatar in India, the refreshed E-Class is expected to debut later this year, or early next year, in the country. Spy shots of the E-Class facelift show a thick camouflage hiding all the new details, but some changes to the exterior are clearly visible. What Mercedes hasn't done is cover the interiors of the sedan. Hence, we have a clear view of the various changes on the inside.
On the outside, the creases of the bumper now look sharper than the current one, which gets a rounded air dam. Although the grille on the test mule is quite bare bones, expect it to get an update as well. What has definitely changed are the headlamps. Gone are the vertically stacked dual DRLs. Instead, the new daytime running lamps look a lot like the overlining ones from the recently-unveiled CLA.
At the rear, it now gets updated taillamps. However, its hard to comment on whether the glitter pattern has been retained or not. But the lighting elements are all-new and now feature a new chequered pattern. The overall silhouette appears to be similar to the current sedan though.
On the inside, the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class facelift gets one major change. While the dashboard layout has been retained, the trackpad is the new slimmer one and the steering wheel also looks new. We also expect the dual-screen infotainment and instrument cluster setup to feature Merc’s new MBUX infotainment system. It is one of the most high-tech setup seen on a Mercedes ever and made its global debut with the 2019 CLA.
This could be an early test mule of the sedan and the fifth generation E-Class facelift could feature more changes in the coming months. As mentioned before, the E-Class sold in India is the long-wheelbase version, with prices starting from Rs 59.12 lakh (ex-showroom). There’s also an E400 Cabriolet variant, which is priced at Rs 80.25 lakh, and the top-of-the-line AMG E63 S that gets a sticker price of Rs 1.50 crore. All prices ex-showroom, India.
