The 2020 E-Class sedan maintains its charming stature and shows no exterior changes from 2019. A set of LED headlights with LED daytime running lights grace the front end of the sedan and flank the classic Mercedes twin-blade grille, and the rear end sees a set of full LED taillights as well. A panoramic sunroof is standard and a set of 18-inch five-spoke wheels come standard, though 19-inch wheel options are available at an additional charge.
The E-Class has progressed in design over the last twenty years, but the midsize luxury sedan has managed to stay mostly on par with rivals including the BMW 5 Series in terms of measurements with a total length of 193.8 inches and a 115.7-inch wheelbase. The Merc is 57.8 inches tall with the Sport Styling, growing to 58.4 inches with the comfort-oriented suspension, and has a maximum width of 81.3 inches including the side mirrors. It is only very slightly wider and heavier than the BMW and has a curb weight of 3,814 lbs in rear-wheel-drive E350 guise, becoming a bit portlier when equipped with the V6 and 4MATIC of the E450, weighing in at 4,134 lbs.

Being one of the most prominent mid-level luxury sedans on the market, the E-Class is bound to an extensive nine-color palette, though only two hues are available as standard options. If you're not one for Black or Polar White, you'll need to locate your wallet for the other seven colors. Four metallic shades are available at an additional charge of $720, including Obsidian Black, Iridium Silver, Lunar Blue, and Selenite Gray. Adventurous metallic hues are available for an extra $1,080 and $1,515 for designo Cardinal Red and designo Diamond White, respectively. But the pièce de résistance of the lot has to be the matte-finish designo Selenite Gray Magno that comes with a hefty $3,950 price tag. The extra thousands will get you a remarkable velvet gray finish that is sure to turn heads.
