The revised E-Class is a car for buyers who place a premium on 'the finer things'.

The E-Class is Mercedes-Benz's ever popular range in the mid-sized saloon market. The first modern mid size Mercedes-Benz - the W120 'Ponton' 180 - was introduced in 1953.

It was not until 1994, when the facelifted W124 was launched that the letter E was used as a prefix (i.e. E220) and the model, officially referred to as the E-Class.

The E-Class has been linked with towkays and executives alike, but all that is about to change after its nip and tuck

Faced with rising heat in the premium mid-sized sedan segment, from competitors such as the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series as well as the Jaguar XF, Mercedes-Benz has given the latest generation E-Class a mid-life refresh in a bid to shed its 'mature' image and appeal to the younger generation.

Headlining the revised E-Class range is the E200 which we rode in recently, and this time, we needed to find out what the more powerful E250 could offer.


Get up close to the new E-Class and the most prominent change you'll see is the pair of 'double hook' LED daytime running lights, housed together with new HID headlamps - replacing the quad headlight arrangement on the outgoing car.

A sportier grille featuring two bars and a large Mercedes badge sits proudly up front and comes as standard, although the traditional bonnet-mounted star and four-bar grille is still available as an option.

Revised taillights give the E-Class an upscale look and at the same time give drivers a visual treat

The whole nose is thus much smoother and more cohesive, following on from the look set by the new A-Class and newer Mercedes-Benz models.

The taillights and rear bumper have also been subtly tweaked and the old angular tailpipe has been ditched for twin rectangular ones for a sportier outlook (Avantgarde trim).
