Detroit LIVE: Mercedes-Benz premieres updated E-Class family

The 2013 North American International Auto Show hosts the world premiere of its fully-updated Mercedes-Benz E-Class, in sedan, estate, coupe and cabriolet versions.

These new models from Stuttgart are the first of many for this year and demonstrate the commitment of Mercedes-Benz to bringing new products to the U.S., its largest single market in the world.

The E-Class has had its front completely reworked including all-new headlights, which comprise all functional elements behind a single headlamp lens. For the first time, the E-Class is available with two different front-end designs: the standard version with a three-louvre look and star on the hood, or an incorporated sports-car radiator with a large central star.

The car is available with no less than 11 electronic aids from the future S-Class, including Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive and Active Lane Keeping Assist. Other improvements to the E-Class family are efficiency and eco-friendliness. There are new, powerful BlueDIRECT four-cylinder petrol engines with spray-guided direct injection that put the E-Class among the highest-ranked cars in terms of economy.

IN total, there are six petrol and diesel versions, with outputs ranging from 184 hp to 408 hp for the petrol engines, and 136 hp to 265 hp for the diesel units. Almost all diesel engines meet the European efficiency class ‘A’, with the E 300 BlueTEC HYBRID achieving a highest-possible mark of ‘A+’.
