2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class photographed undisguised

2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

Bringing in-depth updates.

Autofacil.es reader has managed to take a picture of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class without any camouflage. The photograph was taken from hotel Chamartín in Madrid, Spain.

This could very well be the E63 AMG version judging by the large alloy wheels, big air vents on the front bumper and the red brake calipers. The photographer, Víctor Gutiérrez Poza, also mentioned that he noticed a “V8 biturbo” logo on the front fender.

Based on this picture and what we have seen in previous spy photos, the 2014 E-Class is more than just a simple facelift as it will bring extensive updates, including one-piece headlights with LEDs and bi-xenon, revised front grille and a new hood.

As we reported two weeks ago, a source has informed us that the E63 AMG will be offered as standard with 4MATIC all-wheel drive and will produce 543 hp (405 kW) without the optional Performance Package. It will be capable of reaching 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.4 seconds.

Sadly - not feeling it. The E-Class has always maintained its own personality and extra high level of class, amongst the MB lineup and against other marques in general. I consider the current model a masterwerk but this update appears demoted. This grille does not suit the E-Class, and the full headlamp (although internally divided) does not sit so well. It is certainly a decent looking car but I expected something just alittle more dynamic - inline with the revolutionary CLS. The directive makes it quite obvious that the intent is to bite in to the 5 Series market, which may be deemed a strong strategy. However, bending the E-Class identity to compete with BMW sales figures tarnishes the brand, in my opinion.

Looking closely, this E63 also has the "double horizontal line" grill like the new SL63 and the G63. This new design seems to be rolling out across all new AMGs now.

Now that I think more about this pic...why did the reader take only one! I'd have run down and got more pics of different angles or at the very least more from that angle and larger ones too thanks to the current megapixel phone cameras.

Looks great, like a bigger C class really. The big emblem is for the sporty versions and the more understated grill without the badge is for the 'boring' but classy versions. Just like with the C class.

I think from this angle the front looks like insignia a bit... Plus the headlights have lost the sharp lines -which i think this generation E-Class is all about sharp lines- which means it doesn't fit the rest...

Hard to tell from this image, but the nose looks better IMO. On a side note (not necessarily this E class) can anyone explain WHY Mercedes is so obsessed with making the noses of most of its model range VERTICAL!? Its worst on a CLS and now again on new SL- just look at the side profile images- at total odds with the rest of the design. The desire for an 'imposing' face has blinded them to it, and in years to come it'll dawn on them but too late- already weakened the overall appeal on many of the cars. Ridiculous. eg:

Front=beautiful :) Back=outdated :( I hope they make that back little a bit more elegant. They already know how to do it.

I have been waiting to see this for a while, from what i see, i like but not the front grill where the Mercedes Logo is placed. If this photographer could release better pictures I'm sure Mercedes Benz would release the official pictures this week!

Mercedes is using the giant grill emblem a bit too much.

The old grill looked soooooooooooo much better. I had a 2010 e-class for a year and found the best thing was it didn't't look like a Korean car as this does. Who else bar rolls Royce has their emblem sticking up? IMO that's not bad company to be in.
