Mercedes E-Class 2020 Facelift
Fans of the Mercedes E-Class range will be thrilled to hear of its 2020 facelift, giving the models an update that is subtle on style but much more disruptive when it comes to technology. Included in the new line-up is seven different plug-in hybrid options, with other changes including new infotainment features, driver aids, and some new stylish detailing too.
Stylistic changes to the Mercedes E-Class include a new grille at the front, changes to the bumper, and a new headlight shape. The headlights are now also LED as standard. More obvious changes can be spotted on the saloon models, with the rear featuring a new boot lid design and brake light clusters. The estate models, on the other hand, remain largely unchanged, save for a few small differences. Some more choices have been added for upgrades too, including three new silver paint options and alloy wheels.
The interior also remains mostly the same, although the three-spoke steering wheel is one prominent difference. Touch-sensitive panels on the steering wheel control the two joined screens, measuring 10.25" for entry-level models, which have the MBUX infotainment system. Higher spec cars also have augmented reality.
Driver assistive technology and safety and security are where the new range begins to shine. The new designs include Urban Guard to protect against theft and damage, with 360-degree surveillance when the car is parked. Collision, anti-theft and tow-away alarms also provide protection, plus there's a tracker and remote key deactivation through smartphone connectivity. Drive assist technology includes Active Speed Limit Assist to adjust cruise control through the use of online data, sat-nav and even reading road signs.
The new range is also offering a choice of engines, with petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid options available, plus brand-new mild hybrids. The most affordable option available is a 292hp 2.0-litre 4-cylinder petrol engine with a 48V mild-hybrid system, but there's also the possibility of bumping up to something with a bit more power for not a lot more money.
In addition to the standard E-Class, the Mercedes E-Class Estate and All-Terrain have also received an update. They have received the same design upgrades as the standard E-Class, plus the All-Terrain gets a new raised suspension, black wheel arches and thicker bumpers with protective cladding.
More information will be revealed about the new Mercedes E-Class range as the launch date comes closer. The new range is due to go on sale in May, and the first deliveries will likely go out in September 2020.
