New Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe Will Have You Lusting For More

The third member in Mercedes-Benz’s fleet of elegant coupe models has debuted at the Detroit Auto Show in the form of the E-Class Coupe.

Pictured below in E400 4Matic guise, the E-Class Coupe slots between its C- and S-Class siblings and brings with it familiar styling and all the luxury trimmings and technologies found in its four-door brother.

Although Europe will get four models from launch, only the E400 in rear- and all-wheel drive configurations has been confirmed for the U.S. and Canada at this stage. Both use a 3.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine delivering 329 hp and joined by a nine-speed automatic transmission.

Inside, the E-Class Coupe is almost identical to the sedan but does include some special touches, including redesigned circular air vents. Elsewhere, the now-familiar 12.3-inch dual displays are available for the gauge cluster and infotainment system while all manner of luscious materials make the vehicle’s cabin a particularly inviting place.

    One thing I have to say about Mercedes… lately they are getting it right. They make it look effortless.

    The long rear window with the fake pillar in it makes the rear panel look really long in a 3/4 photo.

      I prefer smaller coupes for that very same reason. The C, 4 series look proportionate. No doubt there will be a Photoshoped Ute version on here soon.

        More’s the pity the C class coupe isn’t pillarless and the rear windows could be lowered. Then it would be a “true” coupe and even better 🙂

    • bxniels0

      True. It almost looks like it should have a hatchback.

      Really? I love it, makes it more sleek imo. but to each their own.

    Brad, please explain your title “New Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe Will Have You Lusting For More.”

    • Day_Trader

      I’d rather be lusting a donut than E coupe.

  • Braddo

    Wow there is no identity with Benz models any more. Totally expected underwhelming dull design.

  • Mr E Fella

    this makes me bored, the old E-Class Coupe looked better because it was easily a MB but was also its own self. now it just looks like all the other MB cars. I am not excited by this at all, in fact if i wanted a MB coupe, id probably just buy the C-Class because it looks the same and costs less

    I love the rim design but they’re too big for this size car. Throw them on the GLE with some meatier tires and they’d look stellar.

    • Bash

      I like your attention to details

      • Kash

        It’s my job to notice this stuff. lol. You should see me at work.

  • Sybill Julian

    wow such a nice wheels!

  • Nope.
    E-class coupe never had any elegance or beauty.
    Current one is a bug-eyed blob, no matter how much bling they put on it, lines are just too compromised by the size of the cabin.
    Some of the lines are nice (for a change), but it’s just not the wild muscular cat it should be.
    (Yes, I know they have a couple of such coupes in the line-up currently.)
