2017 Mercedes E-Class Coupe and convertible price, specs and release date


Official prices and specs for the 2017 Mercedes E-Class Coupe have been announced. Read on to find out exactly how much the German firm’s latest executive Coupe will set you back now the order books have opened.

Entry-level E220d versions come fitted with a 2.0-litre diesel engine that produces 194hp and can reach 62mph from rest in 7.4 seconds. This model emits as little as 119g/km of CO2 and can return 61.4mpg. In AMG Line guise – the only trim level currently offered by Mercedes in the UK – it’ll set you back £40,135.

Higher-spec E300 petrol models with a 245hp 2.0-litre engine cost £41,025 but can complete the 0-62mph sprint in a more spritely 6.4 seconds. Both fuel economy and emissions are less impressive than the diesel model, however – it’ll return 33.6mpg and emit 189g/km of CO2.

Customers looking for a top-spec E-Class Coupe are currently offered a £50,775 E400 model with 4MATIC four-wheel drive. This 3.0-litre V6 petrol model boasts a potent 333hp and can leap to 62mph from a standstill in just 5.3 seconds. It comes fitted with air suspension as standard, too – a £1,495 option on E220d and E300 models.

All current models come fitted with 19-inch alloy wheels, LED head and brakelights, a reversing camera, parking sensors and – in E300 guise – a sports exhaust system. Inside you’ll find heated front seats, split folding rear seats and an 8.4-inch infotainment display with sat nav. E400 models are offered with a larger 12.4-inch screen as standard.

An optional Premium Equipment pack offers memory seats, a panoramic sunroof and keyless go for £2,795 while a Premium Plus package adds adaptive LED headlights and an upgraded Burmester sound system for £3,895. The E400’s larger 12.3-infotainment display can be fitted to E220d and E300 models for an extra £1,495 while a similarly sized instrument display screen is offered for an additional £495.

A Lane Tracking pack that includes lane keeping assist and blind spot monitoring features is available for £595 while further advanced safety systems are offered in the £1,695 Driving Assistance package. The latter comes with automatic emergency braking, evasive steering assist, and various speed limiting functions as standard.

2017 Mercedes E-Class Coupe price, specs and release date (updated December 2016)

After months of speculation, the Mercedes E-Class Coupe has finally broken cover in production form. This curvy coupe sits between the top-of-the-range S-Class Coupe and the smaller C-Class Coupe, wading into battle against the BMW 6 Series and upcoming Lexus LC.

If you can’t wait for the new Coupe, check out the comfortable four-door Mercedes E-Class. To see the latest carwow discounts, check out our car deals page or use our handy car chooser tool to narrow down your search.

Mercedes E-Class Coupe styling

In many ways the styling is unsurprising – it features similar proportions to the E-Class saloon with the upright four-door stance replaced by two doors and a curved roofline. Familiar hallmarks of Mercedes coupes remain such as the frameless windows, long bonnet and wide, imposing Mercedes grille.

Like other Mercedes coupes, the E-Class Coupe features thin brakelights with two LED elements in each. Mercedes has included a ‘welcome’ feature where the sweeping indicators – similar to those seen on recent Audi models – sweep outwards when the car is unlocked and pulse back inwards once it’s locked again.

Mercedes E-Class Coupe interior

Considering the basic E-Class already has a show-stopping cabin, the Coupe didn’t need to do much to feel special. The main change compared to the saloon is the addition of new air vents inspired by turbine engines but, overall, little has changed. That means you still get the option of two full-colour screens spanning the dashboard with one replacing the traditional dials.

Like the saloon, the Coupe features touch buttons on the steering wheel to control the car’s functions. These non-physical controls respond to swipes while the touchpad in the centre console can be used to write in sat nav destinations or, should you not fancy either control method, you can use the built-in voice control.

Naturally, being a coupe will demand more compromises from an owner than an E-Class saloon would but, considering the style the Coupe offers, passenger space is said to be respectable. An increase in length of 123mm with 113mm of that being between the wheels means the new model offers 74mm more rear legroom than the old model. Greater width means there’s now 50mm more shoulder room in the front and 34mm more in the rear, too.

Mercedes E-Class Coupe engines and spec

All models launch with a standard nine-speed automatic gearbox for better acceleration and lower engine speeds while cruising. Diesel fans can pick the same E220d 194hp four-cylinder unit that hits 62mph from rest in 7.4 seconds and claims 71mpg average fuel consumption.

The smoother petrols are better suited to this grand tourer, however, with entry-level models powered by the E200 – a 184hp 2.0-litre turbo unit that covers 0-62mph in 7.8 seconds while returning 47mpg on average. A more powerful E300 hits 62mph from rest in 6.4 seconds while the current top-spec 3.0-litre E400 4Matic features four-wheel drive and reaches 62mph from a standstill in just 5.3 seconds.

Basic models get suspension that’s 15mm lower than the regular saloon for enhanced cornering grip and reduced body roll while still delivering a comfortable ride. Adjustable Dynamic Body Control suspension can be specified with different damper modes including comfort, sport and sport+ depending on the situation.

At the top of the range, buyers can pick air suspension. Replacing the regular springs with air bags means that, in comfort mode, the E-Class Coupe is arguably the most comfortable car in its class. Drivers can firm up the air suspension at the touch of a button should they find themselves in the mood on a twisty country road.

While Europe will get the option of entry-level Avantgarde trim, UK buyers can only have the high-spec AMG Line models. These versions get a sportier body kit, larger alloy wheels, perforated brake discs plus a part-faux-leather interior to help them feel suitably upmarket. Buyers can also pick the Night Package that includes tinted windows and trim pieces in gloss black.

Mercedes E-Class Coupe price and release date

First deliveries for the new E-Class Coupe will take place in April 2017. Final UK spec and prices are yet to be announced but we’re not expecting it to change vastly from the outgoing model – this means entry-level cars could cost around £38,000 with top-spec models rising to about £46,000. Any high performance versions that arrive later on could cost significantly more.

Mercedes E-Class Coupe latest news (updated December 2016)

Leaked images from its brochure confirm exactly what the upcoming Mercedes E-Class Coupe will look like, both inside and out. Images courtesy of Autotijd reveal sporty AMG Line models for the first time, too.

Not only has Mercedes been spotted testing its new E-Class Coupe with barely any camouflage, but a leaked brochure for this upcoming executive coupe shows us exactly what it’ll look like. As expected, its slinky new bodywork looks almost exactly like the current S-Class Coupe with a few subtle tweaks to make sure it doesn’t upstage its bigger brother.

Entry-level models, left, look distinctly more plain than higher-spec AMG Line versions, right…

The front bumper looks unchanged from the E-Class saloon but the brakelights and rear bumper appear to have been heavily inspired by the C-Class Coupe. Entry-level models with simple bumpers and smaller alloy wheels look fairly stylish but, to make the most of the E-Class Coupe’s svelte new lines, you’ll want to stretch to an AMG Line version. A range of larger alloys, a sporty rear diffuser and a smattering of bright chrome trim will help these higher-spec models really stand out.

Unlike either the C-Class or S-Class Coupes, the E-Class features a two-piece rear window design. This larger glass area suggests its roofline is both higher and less curved than either of its executive coupe cousins – probably to boost headroom for rear seat passengers. A large panoramic glass roof should help make its interior feel as well-lit and airy as possible, too.

Inside, the dashboard appears to have been lifted straight from the four-door model. A pair of giant screens behind the steering wheel will be familiar to any E-Class saloon driver while the COMAND system’s rotary dial and touchpad take pride of place on the centre console. A set of six new air vents with turbine-like fins lend the Coupe a slightly more sporty appearance inside than its saloon brother, however.

This leaked brochure has confirmed the Coupe will be offered with at least four engines options, including an E220d diesel unit that’ll return up to 70mpg. Three petrol versions will also be available, including an entry-level E200 with 182hp, an E300 version with 242hp and a V6 E400 4Matic model with four-wheel drive and 329hp. We expect Mercedes to offer an E50 variant powered by a new AMG-tuned inline six-cylinder engine with more than 400hp at some point in the future, too.

2017 Mercedes E-Class Coupe price and release date

Mercedes will officially reveal the new E-Class Coupe on December 14 and it’s expected to go on sale in early 2017. If this sounds like your perfect coupe cruiser, you’ll need to set aside at least £40,000 for an entry-level model and as much as £70,000 for an E50 version.

2017 Mercedes E-Class Coupe price, specs and release date (updated December 2016)

The 2017 Mercedes E-Class Coupe, in potent E50 trim, will be the first car in the German brand’s lineup to feature an all-new turbocharged six-cylinder engine tuned by AMG. Read on for everything we know so far about this upcoming executive coupe…

These images, courtesy of Motor Authority, give use a good look at the standard E-Class Coupe undergoing testing but the AMG-tweaked E50 version will look significantly sportier. More aggressive bumpers and new side skirts are expected to draw inspiration from the high-performance E63 saloon, shown below.

Mercedes has confirmed the E50 will come fitted with an all-new AMG-developed 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine producing 402hp. Rather than package its cylinders in a Vee formation, however, AMG has chosen to string them together in an inline pattern and bolt on a high-tech electric turbocharging system. This feature takes a conventional turbo and adds a second unit with a built-in electric motor that’ll provide a near-instant power boost at low revs.

This new AMG-tuned E50 is expected to draw inspiration from the rapid E63 saloon, shown here…

The upgraded electrical system required to drive this 70,000rpm electric turbo will be put to good use in the new Coupe. A more powerful starter motor will be called into action to assist the 3.0-litre engine when you hit the throttle. This mild-hybrid system will not only help improve performance but should make the new car more fuel efficient, too.

Mercedes’ 4MATIC four-wheel-drive system will reportedly be available on all cars in the E-Class Coupe range except the E300 Hybrid. Entry-level E200 petrol models will be exclusively fitted with a six-speed manual gearbox while more powerful versions will come equipped with a nine-speed automatic as standard.

Early reports suggest the E400 model – with its 328hp 3.0-litre V6 – offers both punchy performance and a refined ride. Mercedes’ optional adaptive air suspension, combined with a stiffer chassis than the E-Class saloon, helps make the Coupe handle precisely and ride comfortably over rough roads – despite its lower ride height. Its slinky, aerodynamic body helps limit wind noise at speed, too, making it a quiet and comfortable motorway cruiser.

2017 Mercedes E-Class Coupe price and release date

The new E-Class Coupe may grace Mercedes showrooms as soon as early 2017. Entry-level models could cost close to £40,000 while more powerful E50 versions are expected to set you back in the region of £70,000.

2017 Mercedes E-Class Coupe price, specs and release date (updated November 2016)

This is our best look yet at the upcoming Mercedes E-Class Coupe in photos courtesy of Motor Authority. This stylish two-door version of the German brand’s excellent executive saloon should hit UK roads in 2017.

Before this new car goes on sale, many dealers will be keen to offer progressively bigger savings on the outgoing model. View these discounts on our Mercedes E-Class Coupe deals page or head over to our car chooser tool if you’re not sure what to buy.

2017 Mercedes E-Class Coupe – styling

At first glance, it looks like picking the perfect two-door coupe just became a whole lot harder. This upcoming Audi A7 and BMW 6 Series rival looks every bit as elegant as its C-Class Coupe and S-Class Coupe siblings thanks to its curvaceous sloping roofline and long bonnet. A distinctly sporty silhouette and a rakish rear end should make it look more elegant than either of its BMW or Audi rivals, too.

The E-Class saloon’s interior, shown here, should be carried over almost completely unchanged to the new coupe…

2017 Mercedes E-Class Coupe – interior

The new E-Class Coupe should boast the same exquisite interior as the existing saloon model. A broad dashboard with chromed air vents and two large infotainment screens should feature alongside sumptuous leather seats and buckets of standard equipment.

2017 Mercedes E-Class Coupe – engines and driving

We expect this new car to come with the same selection of engines as its saloon sibling. Entry-level E200d cars could come with a 148hp 2.0-litre diesel engine that can return as much as 72mpg while higher-spec E350d versions should boast 258hp – enough to sprint this large two-door coupe to 62mph from rest in around 5.9 seconds. All models should come fitted with a nine-speed automatic gearbox as standard.

A hybrid E350e model will also be available while drivers looking for a tyre-frying super coupe may be offered a 612hp E63 model with a twin turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 borrowed from the AMG GT supercar.

2017 Mercedes E-Class Coupe – price and release date

The lack of camouflage fitted to this prototype suggests the E-Class Coupe’s launch can’t be too far away. We expect it’ll go on sale in early 2017 with entry-level models costing close to £40,000. High spec E63 models could set you back between £80,000 and £100,000, however.

2017 Mercedes E-Class Coupe price, specs and release date (updated October 2016)

Here is our best glimpse yet at the upcoming 2017 Mercedes E-Class Coupe thanks to new images courtesy of Motor Authority. This stylish two-door version of the German brand’s executive saloon appears to sport styling inspired by the recent C-Class and S-Class Coupes.

Before this new car goes on sale, many Mercedes dealers will be keen to offer increasingly bigger discounts on the outgoing model to clear space in their showrooms. View these offers on our Mercedes E-Class Coupe deals page or check out its rivals using our car chooser tool.

2017 Mercedes E-Class Coupe styling

These images confirm the new car will sport a curvy rear end and a similar elegant roofline to its C-Class and S-Class Coupe siblings. The outgoing model’s heavily sculpted sides and fiddly headlights appear to have been replaced by simpler designs more in keeping with the current E-Class range.

We don’t expect the new Coupe’s interior to differ greatly from the saloon’s, shown here…

2017 Mercedes E-Class Coupe interior

The new Coupe’s interior is expected to look almost identical to the saloon’s and should boast similarly excellent build quality and upmarket materials. The Coupe’s svelte profile will make the back seats noticeably more cramped, however, and may cut into the available boot space, too.

2017 Mercedes E-Class Coupe engines and driving

The new Coupe will share the saloon’s range of engines and its super smooth nine-speed automatic gearbox. Entry-level versions will be powered by a four-cylinder diesel engine capable of returning 72mpg while a 258hp six-cylinder E350d model will also be available. This new car could also be offered in high-performance E63 Coupe trim powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8.

2017 Mercedes E-Class Coupe price and release date

The new E-Class Coupe should go on sale in 2017 and is expected to carry a noticeable premium over the saloon. Entry-level models could cost close to £40,000 while top-spec versions could set you back as much as £50,000. Future E63 Coupe models are expected to cost significantly more, however.

2018 Mercedes E-Class Coupe price, specs and release date (updated October 2016)

A new Mercedes E-Class Coupe is currently undergoing testing before its 2017 release. These thinly disguised spy shots from Autoevolution give us our clearest indication about what the new model will look like.

If you can’t quite wait for the new model’s 2017 release, take a look at the latest Mercedes E-Class Coupe deals page – dealers typically offer gradually increasing discounts on the existing model as the release date for its replacement nears. For other coupe alternatives, take a look at our car chooser.

New Mercedes E-Class Coupe styling

The E-Class Coupe looks set to carry over many of the styling cues from both the smaller C-Class Coupe and the flagship S-Class Coupe. In the past it’s generally taken a less sporty, more comfort-oriented approach than the other two and that will be reflected in some of the subtle differences in its details. The sides appear to do without the sculpted flanks of the rest of the family, instead using a much softer, more rounded look.

Towards the rear, a couple of more subtle details will separate the E-Class from the rest in the Mercedes coupe range. The side windows will keep the same pillarless look but the window line tails off more abruptly than the S-Class and doesn’t kink upwards like the C-Class. At the very back of the car, the E-Class Coupe’s rear bumper appears to sit more proud of the bootlid than the others.

Some details will bear a striking resemblance to both its big and little brothers but the tail lights remain covered in a camouflaged cladding. It’s clear through the disguise that the new model will feature a similar sloping boot line and slim LED lights.

The latest spy shots don’t show a clear view of the front, but shots of early prototypes suggest it’ll look largely similar to the E-Class saloon. Expect a bold grille featuring a prominent three-pointed star on the nose and a distinctive LED lighting signature from the swept-back headlights.

Mercedes E-Class Coupe latest news (updated April 2016)

New images have emerged of the new Mercedes E-Class Coupe undergoing testing ahead of a launch in late 2016 or early 2017. These new photos from Motor1.com give us our best glimpse yet at this executive coupe’s styling – read on for full details and images.

When a new car is being readied for launch, many dealers will be keen to offer sizeable discounts on the outgoing model to clear space in their showrooms. See the great carwow deals you can get by using our Mercedes E-Class Coupe configurator.

Previous prototypes had been spotted with both camouflage wraps and bulky bolt-on panels to thoroughly disguise the new car’s styling but these latest images show the new E-Class’s design much more clearly. The front bumper and grille share many features with the recently released E-Class saloon, including simpler rounded headlights in place of the last generation’s angular units.

The three air intakes in the front bumper appear to be the same as the saloon model, although their exact design has been concealed, and the same distinctive daytime running lights within the headlight pods are visible, too.

The svelte roofline is more visible on this prototype and the rear boot lid can be seen for the first time without a box-like disguise. What appears to be a large panoramic glass roof is also visible, but the exact shape of the rear windscreen and side windows has been hidden from view.

The read bumper is still heavily camouflaged in these pictures but we expect the Coupe to boast a sportier and more curvaceous tail than the relatively boxy saloon. The slim brake lights appear to extend inwards across the boot lid and twin-exit exhaust can just be seen peeking out from beneath the long rear overhang.

No images have emerged of the new E-Class interior but we expect it to feature many features carried over from the Saloon model. A production ready E-Class Coupe will likely be shown at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show and go on sale in 2017. Check back for regular updates as soon as they become available.

New Mercedes E-Class Coupe and Convertible latest news (updated April 2016)

The Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet has been spotted testing, albeit with a heavily disguised roof and upper body panels. These images from carscoops are our first look at the latest E-Class derivative that should make its official debut in late-2016.

If you’re after a new car but would prefer a saloon to a cabriolet, our new Mercedes E-Class configurator can help you get a great price. Alternatively, if you’re not sure what to buy, read our list of the best four-seater convertibles currently on sale.

Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet styling

We expect the E-Class Cabriolet to share many styling features, including its elegant proportions, with the E-Class Coupe. The pillar-less window design that was previously disguised on the Coupe prototype is clearly shown in these photos. Certain specific details, such as the headlights and the front grille, will probably be very similar to the E-Class saloon.

The rear bumper features the same scalloped sections on each side as the Coupe prototype. Heavy camouflage disguises both the silhouette of the brake lights and the shape of the boot lid. We therefore expect the lights to feature a new design, different to the E-Class saloon, and the boot lid to have a more prominent shape.

The finished folding fabric roof will probably have a similar multi-layered construction to the new C-Class Cabriolet – this should ensure noise in the cabin is kept to a minimum even at motorway speeds. To keep occupants comfortable with the roof down, Mercedes will fit its AirScarf headrest-mounted heaters and AirCap windscreen-mounted spoiler to deflect cold air away from the cabin.

The E-Class Cabriolet interior will probably be very similar to the E-Class saloon, shown here…

Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet interior

The interior will probably be the same as the E-Class saloon and feature large infotainment display screens and a multi-layered dashboard design. A centre console with minimal buttons and the four large central air vents are all elements we expect to see in the new E-Class Cabriolet. Equally likely is the screen that replaces the dials (not shown above) allowing the driver to configure the information they see.

Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet engines

The selection of engines offered in the E-Class Cabriolet will likely be the same as the Coupe. Customers will initially be able to choose from either 2.0-litre four-cylinder or 3.0-litre V6 diesel engines – four, six and possibly eight-cylinder petrol units will be added at a later date.

Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet price and release date

The last generation E-Class Cabriolet carried a price tag approximately £4,000 more than the Coupe across the range and we expect this new model to be similarly more expensive. Entry-level cars should cost around £42,000 and top-of-the-range versions could cost nearly £50,000. We expect the cabriolet to be officially revealed in late-2016 and go on sale in 2017.

Mercedes E-Class Coupe spy shots (updated February 2016)

A spy video (below) courtesy of walkoart videos shows the upcoming Mercedes E-Class Coupe testing on city streets in Germany. Little is revealed because the car in the video wears heavy camouflage but you can clearly make out its curved roof and three-door body style.

The outgoing E-Class Coupe was a ‘pillarless’ coupe meaning the windows didn’t feature a pillar between the door edge and the car’s rear. This attractive feature is almost guaranteed to return for the new model but the spy video shows testers have put a fake panel over the gap.

Mercedes E-Class Coupe latest news (updated January 2016)

The new Mercedes E-Class saloon was revealed earlier in January 2016, meaning the E-Class Coupe won’t be far behind. Previous versions of this lavish GT have tended to focus on comfort and cruising ability than outright sportiness and, while its recipe is unlikely to change much, we expect this model to be better to drive than every before.

Camouflaged photos courtesy of autoevolution show the E-Class Coupe undergoing winter testing. If you can’t wait for the new model to be revealed, check out the new Mercedes E-Class saloon to get an idea of what to expect for the Coupe. Take a look at its rivals including the BMW 6 Series and the Lexus RC.

Mercedes E-Class Coupe styling

While it’s expected to have an E-Class-inspired front end, the Coupe variant echoes the shape and styling of its C-Class Coupe and S-Class Coupe siblings thanks to the long bonnet, sloped roofline, high window line and frameless side windows. This is more than a coincidence however, since the E-Class Coupe will be using the same MRA platform as both these models.

The interior isn’t expected to change much compared to the saloon (shown)

Mercedes E-Class Coupe interior

The Coupe’s interior will be very similar to the E-Class saloon’s, too, with the large dual-screen displays and four central vents expected to be carried straight over. The saloon’s range of technology and driver assistance systems should also be made available in the Coupe. The moderately increased size compared to the current E-Class means the new model will be more accommodating for four adult passengers to sit comfortably.

Mercedes E-Class Coupe engines

The E-Class Coupe should offer the more powerful units from the E-Class saloon’s engine range with both the 2.0-litre four-cylinder and 3.0-litre V6 diesel units available from launch. The new nine-speed automatic gearbox will also be fitted to both engines while a new range of four-cylinder petrol engines will be added to the lineup later on.

Mercedes E-Class Coupe price

The new generation E-Class Coupe is expected to grow a little to properly rival the BMW 6 Series. This means prices are also expected to be a little more than the current generation coupe’s £38,635 entry price. Like the C-Class Coupe and S-Class Coupe, there will probably only be two trim levels on offer including an SE and sportier AMG-Line variant.

Mercedes E-Class Coupe release date

The E-Class Coupe should arrive later in 2016 after the E-Class saloon goes on sale. Whether Mercedes will continue the tradition of launching a partnering Cabriolet model alongside the coupe remains to be seen.
