When you’re already onto a good thing, the first rule is: Don’t mess it up. So you can rest assured that there is a lot of thought being put into the planned revamp of Mercedes’ popular E Class.
The 2013 specification of the E Class, which you can find out about at new Mercedes E Class
continues in the tradition of its recent predecessors – the main change is that UK buyers now have the option of an E300 Bluetec Hybrid version.
But it was recently revealed that the E Class line will undergo a major facelift for 2014, inspired by the upcoming A Class. Details are still sketchy, but reports suggest that the sporty, angular look of the current models will be dropped in favour of a softer, more elegant profile. Also, the dual-headlamp system that has been a feature of the E Class for the past three generations is expected to be replaced by a single-unit design.
The changes won’t be limited to aesthetics. For starters, a sensor system will be installed in the front bumper that will scan for bumps in the road ahead, allowing the car’s suspension to adjust itself and giving the passengers a smoother ride.
A ‘Superlight’ version of the E Class is also in the works, which is aimed at reducing the car’s weight by 770 pounds – making it more dynamic, and easier on fuel. It will be produced in limited numbers (currently predicted to be around the 20,000 per annum mark), and should be available in 2017.
