    In terms of design, the facelifted E-Class gets new headlamps flanking the trapezoidal front grille. The bumper is also redesigned and it looks more sporty with a slimmer air dam running across its width. The side profile looks largely unchanged while at the back it features new slimmer tail lamps similar to the new S-class and the recently unveiled C-Class sedan. It also gets a new set of alloy wheels. That said, the overall design of the facelifted E-Class is now more in-line with the brand’s sedan family look. 

    On the inside, the cabin layout remains largely unchanged save for a new steering wheel. It also gets the latest version of the Mercedes’ MBUX infotainment system with the “Hey Mercedes” voice assistant.
