Among them are conventional luxury-coupe customers, a tiny but prominent team that has proved valuable to Benz for years.

2018 Mercedes-Benz E-class Coupe EXTERIOR

As we mentioned when Mercedes-Benz introduced the new E coupe, the car is substantially bigger than its predecessor. The brand-new W213-generation E-class system has actually expanded 4.4 inches in between the axles, 4.8 inches in length, 2.9 inches in width, and also 1.5 inches in height, therefore putting the new mid-size two-door neatly between the C- as well as S-class sports cars. Compared to the E-class car, it is 1.5-inches lower on a 2.6-inch-shorter wheelbase.

It additionally currently has genuine presence. Apart from sharing the majority of the design of others Benz E new two-door coupe, the main design Gorden Wagener prefers to streamline the visual, which leads to elimination of the top contour located in almost every other Mercedes. While some aesthetes (including your author) feared this could undervalue the cars and truck’s look, we needn’t have stressed. Various other brand-new components have added substance back in, including the wide and instead shovel-like front apron; the long, straked hood; as well as the supersleek windshield that aesthetically connects with the standard scenic sunroof. The arcing roofline and also the lack of a B-pillar stay trademarks of the E-class coupe– as does the pesky bit of back side glass mucking up exactly what we want was a full-length opening as on the S-class coupe. Yet that item of glass was a needed wickedness as designers looked for to decrease the density of the C-pillars, a vital contributor to the cars and truck’s windy style. The result is a delicate greenhouse set atop a significant yet clean lower body, an artistic equilibrium of visual strength and agility that only a windy two-door such as this can manage. So we’ll manage the item of glass.

It’s most likely that E-class coupe purchasers will be less interested in going promptly as going smartly and conveniently. As well as this car has a lot to use such chauffeurs, starting with size as well as room. Whereas the C-class coupe can feel tight, this brand-new W213 coupe– with its additional size, slim roofing system pillars, as well as substantial stretches of glass– has a certain feeling of space, also when taken into consideration together with the S-class coupe. The E’s wonderful dual-screen control panel looks and also operates just as well as it carries out in the car, yet certain details, most significantly the jet-turbine-looking air vents, are specific to the two-door. The coupe additionally uses a couple of added color and trim choices, including dressy, light timber accents in high-gloss or open-pore finishes. Regrettably, our car was cut with the same things discovered in the E43, which tries to at the same time evoke both steel and carbon fiber with little success at either. The black as well as white front seats in our vehicle, however, looked great as well as really felt also better, incorporating optional massage therapy elements together with flexible back assistance and headrests, cooling followers, and home heating. All that in some way is packaged within a remarkably thin seatback, as well, therefore preserving rear-seat legroom.

2018 Mercedes-Benz E-class Coupe ENGINE

Unlike its two-door brand brethren and also the E-class car, the E coupe is provided in only one potency– badged E400– with a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 tuned to supply a reputable 329 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque. Mated to Mercedes’ ubiquitous nine-speed automatic and a choice of rear- or all-wheel drive, the engine confirms plenty with the ability of encouraging the cars and truck, yet we find little inspiration in its personality. There’s no delight to be found in the upper reaches of the rev variety, just a muzzled grumble. The change feedback of the nine-speed, also in Sport mode, is extra silken than stylish. That said, Mercedes asserts that the all-wheel-drive cars and truck can accelerate to 60 mph in 5.2 secs; we expect to beat that by a tenth or more.

The E400 coupe is not at its ideal being driven hard, but when dealt with much less strongly it really feels strident and robust. It matches the personality of the car, while we expect those hankering for a little bit even more sizzle will be served by an ultimate AMG-tuned E50 coupe powered by its new turbocharged inline-six, called M256 inside, a powerplant that Mercedes has said will certainly create in excess of 400 horse power and also 369 lb-ft of torque. However that’ll be as burly as this automobile gets, as we have actually currently been told that an E63 coupe will not happen.
