We can see the new headlights incorporate LED-daytime running lights, which used to be found in the bumper. There is still a separation between the inside headlights and the outside ones, giving the new lights the same feel as the old ones.
The grille design is getting a little more upright, and the front bumper is also being replaced. A slight change to the rear bumper is also present, and the taillights will likely be LEDs with new graphics incorporated.
For interior tech, the dashboard setup will get a slight overhual, and the car will incorporate systems such as night assistant, dynamic light assistant, intelligent lane assistant, intelligent brake assistant, congestion assistant, magic ride control and heads-up display.
The E-Class should be on sale by spring 2013.
