At first glance, the changes that will occur with the business class model seem rather insignificant, but still there are a couple of important improvements. On the tests were observed sedan and wagon.

Mercedes-Benz is starting to test an updated version of the E-Class model, only now in the United States. According to rumors, the new 2020 model year will be more powerful than its current predecessor. The power increase is not accompanied by any visual improvements, but we know that some changes are planned for the facelift of the model. The video at the top of this page provides a detailed overview of the two prototypes of the updated model.

It is noteworthy that the engineers of the German team brought out two types of updated business-class cars for test runs at once – in the sedan version, the car will receive the internal designation W213, and for the generalist the code will be S213.

One of them is the E-Class sedan and the other is a wagon. The front parts of the spotted cars have slightly modified elements – a new grille, sharper headlights with integrated LED DRLs. If the shape of the latter seems familiar to you, it is because they are very similar to those in the updated CLS mid-size crossover.

 It is noteworthy that the E-Class S213 wagon seems to have got a slightly different grille. Headlights have the same overall shape, but we think that this may be a higher level of trim with different internal graphics.

Earlier “spy” photos showed that the interior of the updated E-class should be moved from the current version of the model without major changes. The dashboard is still dominated by a pair of large screens with a large HVAC control unit located at the bottom of the center console. Some infotainment software improvements may also be planned.
