A new generation of Mercedes-Benz E-Class is in the midst of development and is being spied on for testing a disguised prototype in Germany.
This new E-Class will probably be the final iteration of the famous luxury sedan offered with an internal combustion engine. All the signs point to its launch in 2023 and while this prototype is covered in disguise, we already have a pretty good idea of what to expect with the new car.
The new E-Class will have the same shape as the outgoing model but will look a bit fresher due to the thin LED headlights complemented by a modified grille. This prototype shows that LED lights running during the day will have a slight curve.

The Mercedes-Benz will also fix the back of the E-Class with taillights like the S-Class. Some variants will also have a prominent declider spoiler. This tester was a sedan but the car will also be available as an estate. Importantly, Mercedes-Benz will scrap coupe and cabriolet variants for the new generation of E-Class.
Although this spy video does not show the interior of the sedan, we know that it will get some parts from the S-Class. This should include the same 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and large portrait-based infotainment display running from the center console to the dashboard.
The German carmaker will place great emphasis on electrification with the new E-Class In fact, this prototype seems to be one of the plug-in hybrid versions that will be offered, no matter how cool it is. The engines expected to be sold include a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 255 hp, a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six with 429 hp and several electrified AMG models, including the 53e and 63e.
