Leaked: This is the W214 2023 Mercedes-Benz E-Class' new face 01

Just days after a photo of what is allegedly the dashboard of the W214 generation 2023 Mercedes-Benz E-Class was leaked on Chinese social networks, we now have a sneak peak of its front-end.

Like the dashboard, this photo also originated from Chinese social networks, specifically on xiaohongshu, China’s equivalent to Instagram.

The photo suggests that the all-new W214 generation model will not ape the flagship W223 / V223 S-Class styling. Historically, the C-Class, E-Class, and S-Class generally maintain a very high level of design continuity, sharing a similar family look.

Current E-Class variants have body coloured material surrounding the grille

With this W214, there appears to be styling elements borrowed by the EQ series EV models, notably the black surrounds on the edges of the grille.

Since there is no Mercedes-Benz logo on the grille, and it has three horizontal bar slats, this is most likely a grille-bumper set for an Exclusive Line variant (unlikely to be offered in Malaysia). The signature hood ornament is covered (or not yet fitted).

Avantgarde variants have only two horizontal bar slats with the Mercedes-Benz logo in the middle while AMG Line variants have chrome diamond motif pins instead of horizontal bar slats, also with the Mercedes-Benz logo in the middle.

The next generation W214 E-Class is expected to make its global debut sometime in the middle of 2023.

In Malaysia, the facelifted W213 E-Class was launched in July 2021, five years after the pre-facelift model, so you know the model is already due for a full model change.

Mercedes-Benz Malaysia currently offers two variants of the E-Class, both locally assembled (CKD) at Pekan. The E200 Avantgarde is priced from RM 345,888 while the E300 AMG Line is priced from RM 397,888.
