Mercedes E-Class facelift

German specialists from Mercedes-Benz have offered a series of updates for their 2014 E-Class Sedan and Wagon. To be more precise, we are talking about more efficient engines, new driver assistance systems and better styling. All safety systems include technologies that can help prevent accidents with pedestrians or vehicles crossing in front and anti-glare continuous high-beam headlamps. The E-Class also takes a major step forward in terms of efficiency, thanks to the new four-cylinder diesel engine. Both the sedan and the wagon versions will be available in the US showrooms starting next spring.

The E-Class has received a new front-end design and revised proportions and in the end they have obtained an elegant and sporty, in the same time, look. As you can see in the pictures, the hood and front bumper have also been completely redesigned. The Sport models also get an even better front design, using the AMG styling package that features larger air intakes and distinct aluminum trim line along the entire lower rim of the front bumper. For the rear, the specialists have modified the lights and the bumper. The Sports variants feature exposed dual exhaust pipes.

When it comes to the engine, the engineers have provided the very efficient 4-cylinder diesel engine powering the E250 BlueTEC with 4MATIC all-wheel drive that will be available starting next fall. The E250 BlueTEC is capable of producing 190 horsepower and 369 lb. ft. of torque. There is also a new feature, the economical E400 Hybrid that is supplemented by an electric motor that produces 274 horsepower and 184 lb. ft. of torque. In the end, the 3.5-liter V6 engine generates 302 horsepower and 273 lb. ft. of torque. All engines of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class are being paired to a 7-speed automatic transmission with DIRECT SELECT lever and DIRECT SELECT shift paddles.
