Mercedes has redesigned the grille and a few other exterior bits on the new E-Class, but for the first time ever customers can opt for two different faces on the E-Class. The automaker continues to pack in new safety technology such as the Intelligent Drive stereo camera that keeps drivers safe on the road at night by detecting not only crossing vehicles and pedestrians in front of the car but in all directions around the vehicle.

We love the full LED lighting available on this new model, and the fact that Mercedes got Bruce Hornsby as well as actors Diane Kreuger and Joshua Jackson to unveil the new E-Class. Long-time Daimler head Dieter Zetsche spoke about the brand’s storied history, and commented when mentioning that a “higher power” endorsed the brand last year (the Pope had his new Mercedes Popemobile delivered), “That was pretty cool.” Keep an eye on Inhabitat today and tomorrow for all the latest green reveals.
