LEAKED: First unofficial pictures of the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class 2013 emerge on the internet

We were already previewing the new-generation E-Class 2013 as a major hit and now, our words are confirmed. The car we have seen for so many months hidden under black cladding is a complete departure from the curent 212 series. The first photos, which were leaked on the interwebs yesterday, emphasize the main body variants: the saloon and the estate. For the first time in the history of the model, the E-Class is available in two distinct personalities.

The Elegance version gets the classic lamella grille, which also got heavily revised in terms of styling, whereas the high-end Avantgarde lime receives an all new Star grille with two thin blades for a dynamic effect. The upcoming E 63 AMG, that arrives in early 2013, will sport company's newly premiered twin-blade grille.

Besides the different visual identities, other major changes at the front involve the new LED, single-body headlamps and the bumper with new air vents inspired from the recent concept cars of the brand. The profile lost its rear wing-placed Ponton crease and is now more elegant and upright. The rear end sports new LED tail lights with impressive inner graphics, as well as a slightly retouched protection bumper. The thin chrome strips placed on the body and the new alloy wheel designs complete the visual philosophy of the updated E-Class.

Inside, clients receive a refreshed dashboard and new quality materials. The steering wheel models, the instrument cluster, the rounder air vents and the central clock come from the CLS-Class, whereas the LCD display for the COMAND Online just got wider and also received sharper graphic capabilities.

Stay tuned to and learn more about the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class 2013 on Thrusday, when the German constructor is expected to release the full official details and photo gallery!
