The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe is the 4th body style based on the same platform.
In January 2016, Mercedes-Benz released its new E-Class. Since then, the company has come out with the E-Class Coupe in less than a year. This two-door coupe has the same style as the C-Class and S-Class coupes. It has room for four people.
The E-Class Coupe is the model’s fourth body style, after the sedan, the estate, and the all-terrain (crossover wagon). Design highlights include a low-set sports grille with a big three-pointed star in the middle, a long hood with muscular lines, door-mounted wing mirrors, and a roofline that ends in an elegant-looking back.
The new compartment is 74 millimetres wider, 123 millimetres longer, and 32 millimetres taller than the old one. The wheelbase has also grown by 113 millimetres. Mercedes says that this has led to more headroom, legroom, and shoulder room inside the car.
The car has LED headlights with multiple beams and LED taillights with a special “welcome” function. When the car door is opened, the LED taillights light up from the middle of the car to the edges. If the car is locked, the sequence of lights goes the other way. This is not only cool to look at, but it is also useful.
The cab is from a sedan, so it has a wide board panel with four turbine-style AC vents in the middle and two on the sides. It also has a widescreen cockpit with the instrument cluster and infotainment display under one lens. There are touch controls on the steering wheel, but there is also a touchpad with handwriting recognition in the centre console.
The car will come with one diesel engine and three gasoline engines. The 9G-Tronic nine-speed automatic transmission will be used in all of them. E-Class Coupe engine options:
E 220 d has a 2.0-liter diesel engine with four cylinders in a straight line. This engine can make 194PS of power and 400Nm of torque.
E 200 has a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder gasoline engine that runs in a straight line. It can make 184PS of power and 300Nm of torque.
E 300 has a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder gasoline engine that runs in a straight line. It can make 245PS of power and 370Nm of torque.
The 3.0-liter V6 gasoline engine in the E 400 4MATIC makes 333PS and 480Nm.
The E-Class Coupe will be shown to the public for the first time at the Detroit Auto Show. Sales will start in the middle of 2017. The E-Class Sedan is expected to come to India in the first half of next year, so the E Coupe should be here by the end of 2017.
