The W213 Mercedes-Benz E-Class facelift has been spotted yet again, this time in northern Europe undergoing cold-weather testing. As with previous sightings, the sedan receives some noticeable revisions to its exterior but now, we get a glimpse of what has been changed on the inside as well.

Unsurprisingly, there’s not a whole lot new inside the E-Class’ cabin at first glance, with the same dashboard layout being carried over from before, with the widescreen cockpit being the main attention grabber.

Upon closer inspection, you’ll notice that the touchpad for the car’s infotainment system on the centre console is new, and looks a lot like the one used in the latest W177 A-Class – sans the palm rest. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen this interface, as it was present on the GLC F-Cell and previous S-Class and E-Class mules.

However, don’t hold your breath on the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) system making its way into the E-Class, given the different architecture required to run the system.

In other areas, we also spot a new steering wheel design with a smaller centre boss compared to the current model, which will likely continue to feature Mercedes-Benz’s Touch Control interface.

As for the exterior, the E-Class’ front end has been completely revamped with a trapezoidal radiator grille and angular headlamps that feature arrow-shaped LED DRLs. The taillights also appear to be new OLED units, something is also shared with the coupe version of the facelift.

Engine options should be similar to the existing range that is currently offered following the E-Class’ most recent update, including mild hybrid, plug-in hybrid and conventional internal combustion engines.
