Ahead of its official unveiling, the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class has been teased by the company on social media. After the cancellation of the 2020 Geneva International Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz will digitally unveil some of its cars, including this facelift version of the E-Class.
The fresh teaser campaign was shared by Mercedes on social media. It gives subtle hints about the changes in the new Mercedes E-Class. A tweaked grille, reworked headlights, and a redesigned front and rear bumper are some of the noticeable changes one can see in the video.
According to some reports, a new steering wheel will appear in the cabin, two 10.25-inch screens of the MBUX multimedia system, and the analog dashboard will be replaced by a digital one. The equipment list will include all-round cameras, a blind spot monitoring system, Active Distance Assist traffic jam and other assistants.
The new Mercedes E-Class may also get two new engines: a 272-horsepower "turbo-four" and a 367-horsepower six-cylinder engine, which will become the basis for "soft" hybrid power plants. In addition, the range will include seven rechargeable hybrids.
In Europe, sales of the E-Class will start in the summer of 2020. First, a sedan and station wagon will enter the market, and later a coupe and convertible. In Russia, the sedan, the assembly of which was established at the Daimler plant near Moscow, can also be updated before the end of the year.
