Mercedes-Benz is intensifying tests for the next E-Class generation, as various prototypes are caught on camera almost daily.
The latest one is of the sportier version of the series, the two-door coupe, which will transform into a production model next year.
Likely to be labeled as a 2018MY in North America, the next Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe will use the same platform as its four-door brother, but it will come with a sloping roofline towards the rear and with small tweaks to the front and rear ends.
It should resemble the new C-Class Coupe and S-Class Coupe, while the engine lineup will be shared with the sedan, as it is expected to include a wide range of four-, six- and eight-cylinder units, including an updated version of the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, signed by AMG, in the range-topping E63.
The three-pointed star will pull the wraps off the new E-Class generation in the sedan body style next month, at the 2016 Detroit Motor Show, and it is expected to be followed by the Estate, in mid-2016, and eventually by the Coupe. A Convertible is also in the books, but chances are it will be unveiled towards the end of 2017.
