As everyone knows, when the facelift version of the Mercedes E-Class hits the market, the most significant change will be made up front where the car will feature revised headlamps. Today Mercedes has dropped a first teaser video of this new light design, making us believe that the official E-Class launch is just around the corner.

As previously rumored, the new headlamps will bring back the famous angular-halo design, but also a belt of LED daytime running lights and an all-around new look. All we can say after watching this video is that we really like it, and we mean really!

Next to the new headlamps, the facelift E-Class will receive updated front and rear bumpers, redesigned rear-lights and the absence of the Ponton-style rear fenders. The E-Class’ engine lineup will range from a relatively tame 3.5-liter V-6 up to a wild 4.7-liter twin-turbo V-8.

i think the up-dates will be mostly in the design area. the technical up-dates are kept for the next series.

3.5 liter V6 is tame? then a 1.2 engine is what?
