SPIED: W213 Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan facelift

Shortly after seeing spy photos of the S213 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate facelift and X213 E-Class All-Terrain facelift, our spy photographers have finally managed to catch sight of the W213 E-Class sedan facelift in Stuttgart, Germany.

As with its Estate and All-Terrain siblings, the sedan also shares the same new face, which appear to be inspired by the new W177 A-Class. Despite being masked, it’s quite clear that the premium executive sedan will get a completely new face, courtesy of a new trapezoidal radiator grille and revised headlights with arrow-shaped LED DRLs.

Behind, there’s no way of telling how big of a change it will get, but a slightly reprofiled rear bumper and redesigned LED tail lights with new graphics can be expected.

As for the cabin, the E-Class has already received a few running updates over the past few years, with the latest adding bits from the facelifted C-Class, such as the redesigned steering wheel and a mild update to the infotainment system. The A-Class’ Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) system won’t be fitted here, because that requires a different electrical architecture. Otherwise, expect minimal changes to the cabin.

Engine-wise, expect the existing range of powertrains to be carried over – the E-Class already gets the latest mills, including a 299 hp 2.0 litre mild hybrid turbo petrol in the E 350, a 2.0 litre turbodiesel in the 150 hp E 200 d, 194 hp E 220 d and 245 hp E 300 d, and a 3.0 litre straight-six diesel in the 286 hp E 350 d and 340 hp E 400 d. There’s also the new 320 hp E 300 e and 306 hp E 300 de plug-in hybrids, both with around 50 km of pure electric range.

The AMG E 53 and E 63 models should remain unchanged as well. The former gets a 3.0 litre twin-turbo mild hybrid petrol straight-six making 435 hp and 520 Nm of torque, while the E 63 is powered by a fire-breathing 4.0 litre biturbo V8 making 571 hp and 750 Nm (or a whopping 612 hp and 850 Nm in the E 63 S).
