Thanks to an automotive forum, the refreshed Mercedes-Benz E-Class has stepped out from hiding.
No more camouflage, no more tricks, just a completely unveiled product. We have to say this was some mighty fine spy work. Though it wasn't so long ago that Mercedes-Benz teased the public with the new, lit LEDs of the E-Class, we can finally conclude that it now sports a pair of single headlights.
In addition, just about every line that use to exist on its body has been rounded off and given a soft shape. That's not a bad thing. I have to say, I think that this is a significant improvement over the pre-refreshed product. Note the all-new front valence, side skirts, "rear diffuser" and vehicle's lighting.
For the first time, we now have a clear look at the new E-Class and it's readily apparent that the Ponton fenders that were brought back from a vintage vehicle have been completely axed.
Taking all of these elements into consideration, we want to know:
Is the refreshed Mercedes-Benz E-Class a STUD or a DUD?
We are happy to present you the Mercedes-Benz E-Class facelift. The design team from Stuttgart is obviously moving away from the teutonic design of the pre-facelift model, which had many strong lines and four distinctive front lights, presenting a more organic version, with a “softer” front, with single piece front lights and a more curvy front bumper. In the rear, the tail lights are redesigned, with new graphics, as is the lower part of the rear bumper.
