The next-generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class has been spotted testing on public roads since December 2021, indicating that it is well into its development phase. The executive vehicle, on the other hand, has always appeared in sedan form – until recently, thanks to walkoARTvideos on YouTube.
The next-generation Mercedes E-Class wagon was spotted on a public road for the first time. It was at an intersection, waiting for a green light, complete with all the concealments you’d expect from a test vehicle. There were two prototypes, but the differences between them were not visible in the video.
As the long-roof model, the E-Class estate will have the same styling as the sedan, with the obvious exception of the rear end. Based on spy shots, the unofficial renderings above imagine what the next E-Class sedan will look like.
The E-Class will, as expected, resemble a shrunken Mercedes S-Class, with evolutionary design changes from the current model. The grille, as well as the headlights, are expected to be smaller than before. The same approach is expected for the back end. Overall, the next-generation E-Class, whether sedan or wagon, will be more streamlined than the fifth-generation W213 model.
Meanwhile, the interior was not shown in the video above, but we expect it to be similar to the one we saw previously. The interior spy shots revealed a dual-screen setup similar to the S-Class. Those looking forward to the next-generation E-Class can expect the latest driver-assist technology from the German automaker.
Mercedes-Benz has yet to announce an exact launch date for the next-generation W214 E-Class, but we anticipate a late-year debut. The current model was introduced in 2016, so it’s past time for a major facelift.
