Mercedes-Benz India has sort of acknowledged the launch of the new E Class by posting a teaser on its Facebook fan page. They have run a video clip showing the amalgamated headlamp assembly, which IndianAutosBlog aired first in November 2012 prior to its global premiere in the US.
A source tipped us that the new E Class launch is a few weeks away, surprisingly preceding the diesel B Class which had heavier anticipation. The current E Class range is powered by a 2-liter petrol and a 2.2-liter diesel engine, both paired to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. These engines with lower fuel consumption will be used in the refreshed range.
