Goodbye four eyes

Posted on: December 14th, 2012


After some leaks and previews over the internet recently, Mercedes-Benz has finally quashed the anticipation as it officially launches the 2014 E-Class. While it is essentially a facelift, the new E-Class boasts more than just cosmetic changes as some of its engines are also updated to boot.

Visually, the most obvious change is in the headlamps. Gone are the twin-lamp design and in its place is a more conventional one-piece setup which is designed such that it goes in line with Mercedes’ other new models to date such as the A-Class and B-Class. The rear lights maintain the same shape as before but gains LEDs. Bumpers have also been revised for the front and rear ends.

The E-Class gets a host of engine options which start from the E200′s two-litre turbocharged lump which produces 181hp all the way to the top of the range E550′s V8 5.5-litre engine which puts out a staggering 402hp. For frugality, there’s the E200 CDi, E220 CDi and E250 CDi which carry different tunes of a 2.1-litre turbodiesel unit. Engine availability will of course be heavily market-dependent.
