The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe has been spied undergoing testing in Europe, revealing the mid-life styling updates to the two-door German luxury car for the first time.
The spy shots of the new coupe come two months after we first published heavily camouflaged images of the updated Mercedes E-Class Estate. The latest shots give us our clearest look yet at the revisions to the headlights and bumper designs, which will make their way to the coupe, sedan, wagon and cabriolet models in 2013.
For the first time since the launch of the ‘W210’ E-Class in 1995, Merc’s large luxury model will embrace a more conventional rectangular headlight design, trading its current four-piece layout. The LED daytime running lights will also transition from the lower air intakes to the headlight assemblies, creating a sleeker bumper with cleaner lines.
The grille is larger and more prominent than the existing model, while the rear bumper will be reshaped to match the softer styling of the front end. The LED tail-lights will be restyled with fresh graphics and darker lenses (not shown here).
The cabin will also see some minor changes, including tweaks to the dashboard, steering wheel, air vents, and upgrades to the communication, infotainment and safety systems.
The upgraded Mercedes-Benz E-Class range will go on sale in Australia in the second half of 2013.
