Mercedes-Benz has released a short promo video that gives an initial impression of the headlamp treatment that it’s applied to the revised 2013 E-Class.
As was hinted at earlier, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class will dispense with the quad-headlamp arrangement that has characterised the range for the past three generations in favour of single-piece units either side of a more rounded grille.
The headlamps glimpsed here appear to feature a full-LED treatment with arrow-shaped strip elements pointing towards the grille. It’s unlikely that the all-LED set-up will be offered as standard across the range.
In addition to a new face, the E-Class will also usher in revisions to the rear apron, front bumper and possibly new exterior colours and wheel options.
The local engine line-up will not differ dramatically from that of the current model, although some of the engines could undergo some tweaks that help to free up a bit more power or improve efficiency and emissions.
A number of technological features will also filter down from the S-class, including the camera-based collision avoidance system and all of its peripheral modules.
The car could make its official debut at Detroit in January or Geneva in March, but it will find its way over here by the third quarter of 2013.
