The luxury car market in India is prospering than ever before and manufacturers are keen to bring their models soon after an international premiere, considering the awareness of new car buyers. One such example is Mercedes Benz E-Class which is a well-known name in luxury sedans in India since a decade. From a while this car didn't receive a refresh but when Mercedes Benz decided, here is how. The E-Class 2014 is more than just a mild makeover. You will instantly realize the changes at first look. The foremost noticeable change being the headlamps which leave behind the traditional twin cluster design but are cleverly designed to appear like one in an amalgamated shape. Then E-Class also ditches the upright three pointed star from its hood. The side and rear view however continue to be the same but carry a tinge of difference. To simply put, the car is now in line with Mercedes Benz’s new design philosophy that will soon also be seen in the New S-Class. The revised E-Class is available in following variants (Prices Ex.showroom, Delhi):
