In a week, we shall get the first look at the new-generation E-Class for the 2013 model year, as Mercedes-Benz is expected to issue the first official pics and information on December, 13th. Following the C-Class approach, the new variants of the lineup will become more distinct through a visual treatment with great effect: the bottom-line version gets a classic chrome grille with grey louvres, the higher Elegance trim will be distinguished through its new, rounder chrome grille with black accents, whereas the range-topping Avantgarde model will get the dynamic Star grille for the first time in history.
Inside, changes will affect some key parts of the dashboard. The instrument cluster will feature new dials and a new arrangement, the HVAC and media interface will be updated according to the latest trend of the brand, the air vents and the central clock will be borrowed from the CLS-Class, while the liquid-crystal display will receive a new graphics technology so that it looks modern and vivid. Customers of the new E-Class Facelift will also have the chance to equip their Merc with the internet-based COMAND Online satnav & infotainment system. New storage compartments and revised ergonomy for a more intuitive use are also among the strategies to destined to freshen up the luxurious dashboard. Last, but not least, new multifunctional steering wheels with four and three spokes will also be offered.
