And it's more in line with other AMG models.
Mercedes-Benz is currently readying a facelift for the E-Class sedan. We've already seen a camouflaged model in Las Vegas, and a very clear at the updated interior, and it's only a matter of time before the 2021 E-Class is revealed in full at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show in March. But before then, leaked photos have already emerged on the internet.
The Instagram post appears to contain two completely uncovered front end photos of the new E-Class. The shots not only show the standard E-Class but the AMG version as well.
A leaked photo of the rear end was posted just a few days ago, so we now have a nearly complete picture of what the new E-Class will look like. The standard E-Class will use two mild-hybrid powertrains with a 48-volt EQ boost system. A base 2.0-liter four-cylinder will develop 268 horsepower while a more powerful 3.0-liter inline-six will produce 362 hp.
As for the AMG model, this is the first time we've seen the facelifted E63 without any camouflage. The current E63 is the last AMG model that does not use the Panamericana grille first seen on the AMG GT. With this new facelift, it appears the E63 will now be more in line with the rest of the AMG portfolio.
The current E63 S produces 603 hp from a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8. We don't expect a massive increase in power from this facelifted model but output could go up slightly. Mercedes will also offer a plug-in hybrid version of the facelifted E-Class, the specific details of which are still unknown for the US market. More details should be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
