The Mercedes E-Class Coupe has been built for rich, successful execs who would normally drive an E-Class saloon but – as the kids have finally flown the nest – no longer need the four-door’s space and have a little extra money to burn, too.
Said execs will not be disappointed because the Coupe has the same smothering luxury of the saloon – thanks to an interior that has yet to be matched in this price bracket. It’s beautifully minimal in its design and plastered with expensive-looking trims.
And, if you don’t mind sticking your fingers deep into your wallet, it can also be specified up to be one of the most technology advanced cars on the road. Kit worth having includes a pair (yes two) 12.3-inch high-definition displays, uber-cosseting air suspension, and Drive Pilot – a system that essentially captains the car for you at speeds of up to 130mph. Option prices have yet to be released, but expect that lot to add close to £10,000 to your little piece of four-wheeled luxury.
A world premier – Mercedes words, not ours – comes in the form of standard scrolling LED taillights that illuminate inwards or outwards depending on whether you’re opening or closing the car.
Sadly, there’s no ‘exciting’ premier to be had from the engine lineup – it follows the familiar storyline laid down by the saloon, so high flyers with their eyes on their money can choose a 2.0-litre 194hp diesel that’ll return 71mpg.
Petrols, meanwhile, take the form of the 2.0-litre 184hp E200 and 245hp E300 – as with the diesel they have four-cylinders – while those looking for silky-smooth running can have the six-cylinder 333hp 3.0-litre E400. It’s the fastest model from launch – an E63 AMG is in the pipeline, don’t worry – getting from 0-62mph in a spritely 5.3 seconds thanks to standard four-wheel drive.
Order books are open now, and we’ll have a full review of the new E-Class Coupe in the coming months.
