First photos: 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class
Most of the front's sharp angles get smoothed out in a midcycle refresh.
The stodgier, edgy front has been softened with one-piece headlamps and requisite LED accents, and on Sport models a giant three-pointed star replaces the thin-lined chrome grill -- similar to how the front ends of the C-Class differ on Luxury and Sport editions. The rear taillights get a little larger, and that's about it. The interior and side look about the same.
We were supposed to see this car revealed in January at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, but nothing stays a surprise for long in the auto industry. Three weeks after Mercedes teased the E's headlamp design, someone in Germany saw the real thing and posted it on a forum. However, the best E-Class news came on Monday, when we learned from Car and Driver that the top-dog E63 AMG would feature all-wheel drive for the very first time on an AMG-tuned sedan.
