Mercedes E Class Facelift 2023

Model Preview

With the midsize vehicle set to enter the market for its third model year since the update, we think changes to the 2023 Mercedes-Benz E-Class will be minor. Mercedes-Benz gave the E-Class a mid-cycle update in 2021.

The 2023 E-Class is expected to be available in sedan, coupe, wagon, and convertible body styles. The midsize E-Class should continue to share the same overall exterior design with the model that’s currently on sale. Regardless of body style, the E-Class has a restrained exterior design with simple lighting, smooth lines, a tidy grille, and a rounded rear end. Even the AMG E53 is subdued as far as past AMG models go.

On the inside, the current E-Class has an elegant design. The curvy dashboard features circular air vents, two prominent displays that are integrated into the dashboard, and an elongated center console. Seating capacity in the E-Class wagon maxes out at seven people, while the coupe and cabriolet can seat five. The sedan offers seating for up to five. Cargo capacity ranges from 9.5 cubic feet of space in the convertible and up to 64 cubic feet of total space in the wagon. The 2023 Mercedes-Benz E-Class should have the same interior design as the current E-Class that’s on sale.

Mercedes isn’t expected to make any changes to the E-Class’ list of tech features for 2023. The current model comes with a 12.3-inch touchscreen, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, navigation, two USB ports, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto as standard equipment. Available features include a Burmester audio system, a Wi-Fi hot spot, a wireless charging pad, gesture controls for the infotainment system, and rear USB ports.

We expect Mercedes to offer three different engines with the 2023 E-Class. The standard engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that makes 255 horsepower. A turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine is available and is rated at 362 hp. The AMG E53 comes with a more powerful version of the six-cylinder engine that produces 429 hp. All engines come paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is available.

Standard safety features with the current E-Class include pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, a driver drowsiness monitor, blind-spot monitoring, and car-to-x communication. Available safety features include adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic alert, a surround-view parking camera, traffic sign recognition, lane-keeping assist, lane departure warning, park assist, a head-up display, and evasive steering assist. These features should continue to be available for the 2023 model year.

Pricing & Release Date

The 2023 Mercedes-Benz E-Class will start at $56,800 with destination. The midsize vehicle can be ordered now. We expect the E-Class to arrive at dealerships this fall.

The 2023 Mercedes-Benz E-Class will compete against the Genesis G80, Audi A6, BMW 5-Series, Lexus ES, and Volvo S90.

Given that the facelifted version of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class was only introduced in 2021, we're not expecting the automaker to release the next-generation model soon. However, that doesn't mean that Stuttgart couldn't care less about its midsize sedan. Spotted several times before, another E-Class prototype has been spied while waiting at a red light in Germany, courtesy of YouTube's walkoARTvideos.

The Mercedes E-Class prototype that we're seeing on the video atop this page is largely similar to the one we saw at the Nürburgring back in April. Still heavily concealed, the sedan does provide little clues about the changes employed by the German marque.

The spy video above provides a close look at the upcoming sedan's details. The LED daytime running lights above double as turn signals, while it looks like the headlights wrap around the corners despite being hidden under wraps. The grille and front badge are disguised for now, though we can expect some air inlets on the lower bumper, also hiding under the camouflage. The black alloys look generic, though, so we're not expecting this set on the production model.

On the sides, only a few character lines are apparent through the wraps, though the proportions are clear – there is a short rear deck, while the tailpipes aren't visible. Most of the taillight elements are hidden away from prying eyes.

The Current, Outgoing Version:

There haven't been spy shots or videos of the next E-Class's interior, though we can expect niceties from the S-Class to trickle down to the midsize model. This means more screens and more driver-assist features are coming our way.

Meanwhile, powertrain details are scarce at this point. A plug-in hybrid has been spotted before, though mild-hybrid turbocharged gas and diesel versions are also expected. The high-end AMG variants will likely get electrically assisted, turbocharged four-pot powertrains.

The next-generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class is expected to debut towards the end of 2023 or even in early 2024.
