We do not know if Mercedes-Benz was ready to share the revamped E-Class series with us yet, but either way, official imagery of both the sedan and Estate (Wagon in the U.S.) surfaced online today.
The E-Class refresh is more extensive than usual with the German brand affording its executive model series a brand new face that does away with the squared looks and the distinctive quad-headlight treatment for two new single-element headlights complete with integrated LED daytime running lights, a new grille with a thicker chrome surround and a restyled bumper.
The cosmetic changes on the outside continue with the freshened up side trim, the alloy wheel designs, the rear combination lights and the bumper design. The same revisions apply for Merc's spacious E-Class Estate / Wagon.
From the single image of the interior released we see that the 2014 model year E-Class adopts the same three-instrument gauge layout and the center console clock of the latest CLS, while also gaining new trims and changes to the buttons of the infotainment and air-conditioning systems.
We'll have to wait to find out if the upgrades are more than skin deep, though, it should not be long before Mercedes-Benz comes out with the full details.
Thanks to Bruno for the tip!
