Mercedes-Benz Malaysia (MBM) has begun teasing the new 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class facelift on its website and social media channels, signalling at the imminent arrival of the new luxury D-segment sedan here in Malaysia.
While the company did not provide a launch date just yet, customers looking to buy one can now register their interest on MBM’s website, linked here.
First unveiled to the world last year, the new W213 Mercedes-Benz E-Class facelift sports a radically redesigned exterior, in tune with the marque’s new design language that was first shown off on the third-generation Mercedes-Benz CLS.
Up front, there’s a redesigned grille flanked by slimmer headlights, and redesigned bumpers that differ in look according to trim levels. The meat of the exterior changes on the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class, however, are around the back, highlighted by the new horizontal two-piece LED tail lights.
Inside, though, updates on the Mercedes-Benz E-Class facelift are a little more reserved. There’s a new steering wheel three twin-spoke sport steering wheels with touch-activated buttons for the AMG Line models, and new MBUX software on the twin 12.3-inch display panels up top. But aside from these, the rest of the interior is pretty much identical to the outgoing model.
There should also be an updated advanced driver assistance suite on the 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class facelift here in Malaysia, with features including the Pre-Safe autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, Blind Spot Assist, Lane Change Assist, and Active Parking Assist. Although, more granular details for equipment list on each trim levels will have to wait until closer to launch date.
We’ll also have to wait and see if we will be receiving the updated and electrified M254 turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, as seen on the E 300e variant that was launched in Thailand just recently.
In the Land of Smiles, the new Mercedes-Benz E 300e makes a combined 320 hp and 700 Nm together with the EQ Boost mild hybrid system, which translates to a 0-100 km/h time of 5.7 seconds.
At least, it seems like there isn’t too much time left to wait, so keep your eyes peeled as we bring you the latest updates on the Mercedes-Benz E-Class facelift in Malaysia!
