Spied: 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Facelift shows up undisguised

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 2, 2012

The much-awaited next iteration of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class was spied while undergoing tests. The car, which is in AMG form, doesn’t have the classic quad-headlight design and instead, it has two single units. However, the lights continue to have a separation down the middle to offer the illusion of having four single lights.

This is being done to merge the styling of all the brand’s models. This is evident on the C-Class looking front end on the new E.

It’s likely that the bi-turbo 5.5-liter V-8 will be powered by the E63 AMG, enabling it to deliver 518 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. Several current AMG models already use this engine. There are reports that the car would drop its pontoon styling but these images reveal that the full-body belt line remains whole.

The new E-Class will feature all of Mercedes’ finest new technologies, which include night assistant, dynamic light assistant, intelligent lane assistant, intelligent brake assistant, congestion assistant, magic ride control and heads-up display. From these pictures, we know that the car gets a panoramic glass roof, probably with magic sky control. [source: Autofacil]
