Mercedes-Benz previews 2014 E-Class design

A quick video reveals new Audi-like headlamps for the refreshed E-Class.

The E-Class is getting a refresh for 2014, and one of the biggest exterior design changes comes in the form of new, single-pod headlights; now, we’ve gotten a closer look at these new peepers thanks to Benz’s YouTube channel.

Mercedes released a video previewing the updated sedan’s new, LED-laced headlights, and they’re pretty darn cool-looking, if a little Audi-esque.

Recently, Spanish publication Autofácil caught a 2014 E-Class naked and out in the open; there are a raft of other changes, but the switch from the current E-Class’s pair of dual-pod lights to more C-Class-like single-podders will be the most noticeable. As is clear from the video (embedded below), the new lights still will incorporate a quad-headlight look; four LED-laced lamps—two on either side of the grille—get an aggressive, angular design that’s easily among the most modern in Benz’s current lineup. Check out the saucy new lights in the video below.
