2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Facelift

Mercedes-Benz
Posted by Victor Ivanov on 15 December 2012

Mercedes-Benz has finally revealed the new 2014 E-Class Facelift. The big family saloon is actually a slightly updated version of the previous model, which is one of the best premium cars in the world. The new model comes with significant styling changes, better and more efficient engines, a lot of extras and some hi-tech features.

Designers applied the new Mercedes-Benz design language to reinterpret the brand's classic design values on the existing basis. The outcome is an elegant, refined and yet sporty look.

The front end has been completely revised with new headlamps that incorporate all light functions within a single lens, while flowing light elements within the headlamps help to retain the "four-eyed" appearance that is such a distinctive E-Class signature. The low beam and daytime running lights both come with partial LED as standard, while full-LED headlamps are available as an option for the first time in this class.

The rear end of the MY14 E-Class features modifications to the lights and the bumper. The new LED tail lamps have a horizontal design that emphasizes the width of the vehicle, while the two-tone look comes with a distinctive nighttime signature. Sport models feature exposed dual exhaust pipes.

The generously proportioned interior of the E-Class has been subtly revised and harmonized with the expressive exterior. Premium materials, precise lines and clearly defined surfaces combine to create a sophisticated overall look-andfeel.

A new feature is the two-part trim extending across the entire soft-touch dashboard, which is available in two wood finishes – burl walnut or black ash. Also new are the 3-tube instrument cluster, the trapezoidal head-unit display, the air vent design and the analogue clock between the two central vents.

Actually, the new E-Class reminds a lot to W220 (the old S-class). The car has identical dimensions and the headlights are almost the same. It is difficult to say whether 2014 E-Class Facelift is good-looking vehicle, but it is definitely not something spectacular.

Check out the full specs below.
