New Gallery of Mercedes’ Updated E-Class Coupe and Cabrio, and Video of E63 S Wagon

Mercedes-Benz is still trying to convince us that the redesigned E-Class has a “four-eyed” look that is typical of the E-Class, but I still can’t see it… Nevertheless, they have integrated this departure from tradition into the design rather well, and I find the facelifted model better looking than its predecessor.

Now, after launching the sedan and estate versions of the car, and following the world premiere of the Coupé and the Cabriolet models, Mercedes has put the spotlight again on the latter, which in Germany, cost from €42,600 for a base E200 hardtop to €73,300 for an E500 convertible ($55,832 – $96,500).

Being large, two-door Mercedes cars, both versions of the E-Class are spacious inside, with roomy accommodations for four actual people. Changes to the inside are minimal, but look closely and the new instrument cluster, air outlets and restyled center console will stand out if you are familiar with the old car.

The two-door models get a wide range of engines, with power outputs varying from 182 hp to 405 hp for petrol and 168 hp to 249 hp if you don’t mind a bit of clatter at idle and go for one of the diesels. Efficiency is also marginally improved over the previous version of the cars, and the manufacturer claims to have improved the handling through fine-tuning the chassis and suspension.

At the more exciting side of the spectrum, we have the E63 AMG S, in its more practical Wagon form. Now, while the Coupé and Cabriolet models address a certain clientele, the estate/wagon version of the E-Class and particularly the AMG model, is far more interesting to us car geeks. We will let Mercedes USA’s AMG Product Manager, Rob Moran, tell you why that is in the video posted after the jump.
