The new E-Class is basically a mid-life facelift, it comes largely with the cosmetic upgrades. The car looks similar to that of the vehicle unveiled at the 2013 Detroit Motor Show.

The front fascia of the new E-Class gets a new grille, redesigned headlights with LED daytime running lamps, making it look more aggressive than before.

The E200, the petrol variant comes equipped with a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder engine that produces 184bhp @ 5500rpm and 300Nm of top torque. The E250 CDI, the diesel model is powered by a 2.1-litre, 4-cylinder engine that churns out 204bhp @ 4200Nm and 500Nm of top torque at 1600-1800rpm. Both the engines are mated to the Mercedes’s 7G-tronic automatic transmission. The company has removed the top end E350 CDI model from its lineup.
