Let's hope you like the new A-Class and CLS design.
Although it doesn't really seem like it, the Mercedes E-Class is getting ready for a facelift. The current W213 E-Class was released back in 2016, meaning it's almost time for a mid-cycle refresh. We like the current design of the E-Class, especially the AMG 63 S Wagon model, but Mercedes will change up the styling to keep it in line with recent models like the CLS and A-Class. Our spy photographers have just spotted an E-Class Wagon prototype testing with some heavy camouflage on the front fascia.
Judging from the photos, all of the major changes will be up front while the rest of the car remains identical to the current car. The grille looks a bit like the AMG Panamerica design, but this may differ on the production car. Even though they are heavily covered, we can tell that the new headlights will adopt the same shape as the new CLS, which are similar to the ones found on the new A-Class sedan.
The rear design looks identical to the current car but may change slightly to match the new GLE SUV. We only spotted the wagon model testing but the sedan should receive a facelift as well.
We don't get to see any spy shots of the interior but it will likely adopt the new MBUX infotainment system that first debuted on the A-Class. Expect to see the facelifted E-Class in 2019 as a 2020 model. The facelift should apply to both the E-Class sedan and wagon but the AMG models should receive their own unique updates and grille designs. We didn't think the E-Class needed an update but the CLS-inspired facelift should be a welcomed change.
