The Mercedes-Benz E-Class lineup is poised to receive a facelift soon, and while we’ve already seen what the new sedan will look like courtesy of an undisguised look at the E63 AMG, we’re now getting our first look at the updated E-Class Cabriolet. Given that 2013 models are already available, we expect the redesigned E-Class to be out for the 2014 model year.
All E-Class models will be getting a new face with smoother lines including reshaped headlights, a less angular front fascia and a more upright, single-bar grille, but it looks like the Coupe and Cabriolet will be getting fewer updates to the rear of the car. While the sedan will get smoother rear doors and quarter panels to eliminate that flared wheel arches, this cue is still apparent on the convertible (as well as the coupe and station wagon). From what we can tell of the car’s rear end, new taillights and a new fascia will help freshen up this Mercedes-Benz mainstay.
