The E-Class Coupe shares its underpinnings with its four-door sedan sibling
After taking the wraps off the new-generation E-Class last year, Mercedes-Benz has gone all out with its different body styles. Following the sedan, estate, and the all-terrain, the Stuttgart based car maker has now unveiled it in Coupe form, the fourth version of its new E-Class.
With soft aesthetic lines across the body, the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe draws inspiration from its siblings, the C-Class and the S-Class. While it does look extremely familiar, there is no denying that it looks stunning in this Coupe avatar. Design aside, the E-Class Coupe is longer, wider and taller than the model it replaces. The overall length and wheelbase of the new E Coupe is up by 123mm and 113mm respectively. It is wider too, by 74mm. The three-pointed star claims an improvement in the leg room by 74mm and shoulder room by 34mm at the back.
As expected, Mercedes has gone big in terms of equipment. From adaptive semi-autonomous cruise control up to 210km/h, remote parking pilot to a 12.3-inch infotainment display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and more, the E-Class Coupe comes loaded with equipment.
Globally, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe will be offered with a range of engines. The E220d comes with a 1,950cc inline four-cylinder unit that makes 194 horses and 400Nm. There is also the E200 and the E300. Both these variants sport the 1,991cc four-pot petrol units that make 181bhp and 241bhp respectively. The top-spec E-Coupe however, comes with a 2,996cc V6 that makes 328bhp and 480Nm.
Mercedes announced that the E-Class Coupe will go in sale in the global market by around summer next year following its official debut at the 2017 North American International Auto Show.
