In a traffic jam noticed a prototype of the new Mercedes E-Class CoupeDecember 26, 2019
The new 2021 model year was seen on public roads with minimal camouflage. You can already notice the updated exterior elements of the car, in particular new headlights.
New versions of the S-Class executive sedan and the powerful AMG Black Series coupe may be Mercedes’ most anticipated new products next year, but 2020 will also be the year the German automaker updates the E-Class business family. The “spy” video published by foreign editions captures the coupe-like performance of the model, which will receive an in-plant index C 238.
Despite the small amount of camouflage, it is clear that the version of the E-Class 2021 coupe model will have new headlights, the same as in the other newest models of the company introduced recently.
A white tape pasted on the back indicates that the taillights will also receive some changes, but it is likely that they will be limited only by the appearance of new graphics.
It is expected that in addition to new “fixtures” and, possibly, revised bumpers, the German business family will undergo some changes in the cabin. Logic tells us that the COMAND infotainment system will be removed to make way for a more advanced set of MBUX screens – one for virtual dashboard and the other for multimedia.
We have not heard of any possible changes in the engine line, although we will not be too surprised if Mercedes offers more electrified powertrains with soft hybrid technology to comply with more stringent WLTP emission regulations. It will also be interesting to see if the “charged” versions of the AMG 53 and 63 change or not.
Judging by the relatively small amount of camouflage that is on this prototype, this may mean that Mercedes will soon introduce an updated version of the E-Class. The sedan may debut in March 2020 at the Geneva Motor Show.
