Facelifted 2020 Mercedes E-Class Coupe Leaves Hideout For The First Time

Slowly but surely, the entire facelifted Mercedes-Benz E-Class family comes out of hiding.

We first saw prototypes of the estate model last month, followed by the E-Class All-Terrain a few days ago, and now the coupe. Arguably the best-looking member of the current E-Class family, it’s safe to say it will hold on to that title after the mid-cycle refresh.

As with the rest of the E-Class body styles, the coupe will receive an updated front end with new headlights, grille, and bumper. For now, the camouflage is too thick to allow us to decipher the way the finished item will look like.

The only thing that is visible at the front is the new CLS-like signature of the LED headlights. The facelift will bring fewer changes to the rear end, which will gain a new pair of LED taillights. Everything else remains unchanged.

Along with the styling treatment, the E-Class Coupe will get equipment and powertrain updates that will make it even more attractive than it is now.  Still, don’t expect major modifications to the engine lineup because Mercedes has already introduced its newest power plants on the current model, including straight-six gasoline and diesel units.

Unsurprisingly, the big coupe will pack the latest onboard tech as far as infotainment and active safety systems go. Furthermore, 2020 E-Class Coupe should be in for some interior tweaks as well that will bring new materials and trims.

The facelifted E-Class Coupe should launch after the sedan and wagon, probably in late 2019-early 2020. It will be followed by the E-Class Cabriolet, which is yet to make its spy debut.

    I may be alone here on this one, but I personally think that the 2014 Mercedes Benz E-Class was the very best iteration of the E-Class during the 21st century (or at least in recent model years).
    It was instantly recognizable, classy, good-looking, and was very much so an individual within the Mercedes line-up.


    All variants were quite amazing (in my opinion). I personally was not a fan of the regional 2010 version, but the 2014 update (shown in these pictures) was well needed, and was just perfect.


    While the interior certainly got an upgrade with the most recent generation, it just feels as though it’s missing something. Although the 2014 was I guess ‘dated’ in some respects by 2018/2019 standard, it was classy, and simple. (Goodness sakes it even had a real working clock, something you don’t see expect in vehicles like S-Class). Maybe it’s just me.


    It’s funny; (I know many were not fans of the last generation E-Class, but) You either dislike, don’t care, disapprove of, or never really know how good something truly is,. until it’s gone.

      I can’t say that I was a fan of the last E-class (neither am I a fan of the current one) but what I used to love was how Mercedes sought to make the E-Class look different (well at least for 3 generations). Even the model you mention (pre-facelift) was distinctive which I could appreciate. Now they all look similar and while I can make each one out I still miss when the E-Class was just a little more different from the rest. Great post.
