> New Mercedes E-Class spotted testing
> Will be a new car inside and out
> Petrol, diesel and PHEV versions expected
> To be revealed and go on sale in 2023
It's one of Mercedes most iconic models, which wasn't long ago facelifted, but is due to arrive as a new model in 2023.
The heavy camouflage doesn't give much away but we can see new headlights and taillights and that the E-Class's design language is largely similar to that of the C-Class and S-Class models.
These imagines seem to show the E-Class will at least be optionally available with flush door handles, like other recent models from Mercedes.
It's too early to know exactly what engines the new E-Class will be available with, but we'd wager that petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid models will still feature in this generation.
There is, of course, already a fully-electric model called the EQE.
Expect the combustion and plug-in models to come with a standard nine-speed automatic gearbox and the option of rear or all-wheel drive.
The new Mercedes E-Class will be revealed and go on sale in 2023.
The current Mercedes E-Class starts at around £40,000 but tops out at more than £100,000 for the range-topping AMG E63.
We expect only a slight rise in price across the range when the new model is launched next year.
