New Mercedes E-Class Revealed With Updated Engines and New High-Tech Features

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the updated E-Class in both the Saloon and Estate variants. Exterior upgrades include a new front end with single unit headlamp with LED DRLs as standard, new bumper, new grille either in traditional design or in a sportier look as well as a new bonnet.

At the rear the tail lights keep their old shape, but come with LEDs now. The rear bumper and exhaust tips are also new.

The interior has been also reworked a little bit with high-quality materials and new two-part trim across the entire dashboard.

The new E-Class also comes with 11 new or optimised assistance systems from the future S-Class.

Part of the engine range are also new BlueDIRECT four-cylinder petrol units featuring sophisticated direct injection technology.

Engine lineup starts with the E200, powered by a turbocharged 181bhp 2.0-litre, while the E550 uses a 402bhp 5.5-litre V8.

New E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet will follow soon, as well as the AMG variants with a 5.5-litre twin-turbo V8.
