2020 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan Spotted For The First Time With Makeshift Taillights

One by one, members of the refreshed 2020 Mercedes-Benz E-Class family are making their first appearances.

Following the E-Class Estate, All-Terrain, and Coupe, it is now time to see the 2020 E-Class Sedan in public for the first time. Our photographers spotted a prototype in Germany undergoing testing alongside a current E-Class Sedan model. What caught our attention was not so much the front end which features a similar treatment as earlier E-Class prototypes, but the rear end of the car.

That’s because the model features a set of makeshift taillights that are clearly a temporary solution until development on the finished item is done. Interestingly, the sedan is the only body style that was spotted with these improvised taillights — the wagon and coupe seem to feature the final production rear lights under the camouflage.

Who knows, maybe Mercedes-Benz is looking to differentiate the E-Class further from the smaller C-Class styling-wise. The rear bumper and boot lid don’t seem to feature changes over the current model, but they’re covered by a thin camouflage material either way.

As with the other body styles, the sedan’s front end is hard to decipher because of the heavy camouflage. It’s clear, however, that the LED headlights feature a new signature and the bumper will gain a more aggressive design.

The 2020 E-Class Sedan will have the latest onboard tech as far as infotainment and active safety systems go. Mercedes should bring some interior tweaks as well, including new materials and trims.

As for the powertrains, don’t expect major updates. Mercedes has already introduced its newest power plants on the current model, including straight-six gasoline and diesel units.

    i like both the C and the E. I think they’re handsome.. however, they look far too similar. The E class needs different tail lights ASAP.

    no distinction between mercedes models anymore. its becoming way too predictable as to what theyll look like it, and its just overall boring.

  • Miknik

    Well likely it will have the new standard rear lights like the A-CLass, CLS or AMG GT….

  • ImNachoLover

    IMO the headlights here and the new GLE look very alike. I’m guessing with this new headlight design we’ve seen on the newest models (2019 CLS CLA A GLE) the newest S and C will also receive similar styling??
