Mercedes E-Class: Fast facts on the upcoming facelift
With over 14 million units delivered since 1946, the E-Class has the impressive distinction of being the bestselling model series in the history of Mercedes-Benz.
While the tenth generation model, originally launched in 2016, continues to be one of the most popular cars to lease, the E-Class will get an extensive facelift in 2020 as well as debut new powertrains across the range.
Here’s some fast facts on what you can expect from the 2020 E-Class.
Undergoing a fundamental restyling over the current model, the E-Class looks to have taken inspiration from the recent A-Class and C-Class regarding its more angular design and slim headlights and taillights.
The innovations will extend to the cabin too with next-gen driving assistance systems including brake, blind spot, steering and distance assist all offered. This last one works with the help of information from LiveTraffic, and allows the E-Class to recognise and respond to tailbacks and slow-moving traffic.
Not only is the new E-Class safe, but it also aims to offer even more comfort for drivers and passengers. It will feature a new steering wheel with touch controls operated by swiping a touchscreen surface, two large 10.25in display screens, and MBUX infotainment and ‘Hey Mercedes’ voice commands as standard.
Seven plug-in hybrids will be available across the range, including 4matic and estate variants, with new in-line engines also offered.
More is expected to be revealed at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show in March.
