It recently emerged that the 2014 Mercedes E Class will be launched in India on the June 25. Also, a 2014 E Class was recently spotted near ARAI, Pune. The variant that has been spotted is the E250 CDI diesel variant.
The 2014 Mercedes Benz E Class facelift features a single unit for each headlamp (replacing the current two units on each side). Along with getting a new set of headlamps, the front fascia also gets a revised grille and front bumper. The new grille on both the standard and performance variants sports a three pointed star and overall, the front end manages to look uncluttered and yet, sophisticated.
On the sides, the car no longer sports the pontoon-style rear fenders and the retro touch has now been replaced by a crease that begins at the rear door and runs along the length of rear fender. The car also gets new foot wear in the form of stylish new mag wheel designs for both the standard and AMG variants.
At the rear, the car seems to feature revised headlamps and a more sculpted bumper.
Changes on the inside would be minimal with only new bits being a new three spoke steering wheel and a revised instrument binnacle.
We feel that overall, Mercedes has managed to improve upon the previous design without having to come up with an all new car altogether.
The E Class is already the highest selling car in Mercedes India’s line up and there are good chances that the facelift will help the E Class with posting an even better sales figure in India.
