2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class W213 taillight
Our friends at Mercedes-Benz Passion.de have photographed the new Mercedes-Benz W213 E-Class W213’s taillight cluster.
You probably have seen your fill of 2016 E-Class spy shots and videos so the very familiar teardrop-shaped taillight cluster isn’t a big deal.
It looks a lot like the one fitted by Mercedes-Benz on the smaller Mercedes C and larger Mercedes S models, but with slightly different graphics while the technology implemented is largely borrowed from its bigger sibling.
This new configuration means the Mercedes E-Class will lose its horizontal wide taillights that extend onto the tailgate on the outgoing Mercedes E.
At night time, these new taillights will work at an 80% brightness level when compared to daytime and the light’s intensity will drop to 60% when the car is stopped.
This auto-dimming technology is being implemented as a measure to reduce glare and avoid disturbing other drivers in traffic.
We will have to wait a little bit more until the Mercedes W213 generation will be out as Mercedes-Benz has promised to stage the world premiere of its new mid-size sedan in January 2016 at NAIAS.
Until then, expect even more spy photos and videos along with some official details from Mercedes-Benz to build up hype even further.
