With its expressive coupé-esque proportions, clear and sensual design and long-distance comfort for four people, the new E-Class Coupé combines the beauty and classic virtues of a grand tourer with state-of-the-art technology. It also offers the intelligence of the E-Class family with full smartphone integration, Widescreen Cockpit and the latest assistance systems with the option of, among other functions, partially automated driving. Powerful engines with low exhaust emissions and comfortable suspension systems with selective damping provide the guarantee of a sporty and agile driving experience.
After the world's most intelligent executive sedan, the successful E-Class family now welcomes another new member: the Coupé. Based technically on the Sedan, the sportily exclusive Coupé marks a next step in the evolution of the Mercedes-Benz design idiom. With its perfect proportions, the new Coupé exhibits a puristic, surface-accentuated design with reduced lines and sensuous forms. Both hot and cool, the reduced design idiom represents beauty and elegance while emphasising the Coupé's sporty and luxurious personality.
The coupé-esque proportions typical of Mercedes-Benz are characterised by a distinctive front end with low-positioned sports grille and central star, a long bonnet with powerdomes, a rearward-shifted, squat greenhouse and a muscular rear end. The dynamic looks are underlined by four frameless, fully retractable side windows and the absence of a visible B-pillar. With these clear forms, the design of the Coupé conveys an air of luxury and style alike.

Welcome feature of tail lamp
Equally typical of a Mercedes coupé are the two-part, extremely flat LED tail lamps, which, in combination with LED MULTIBEAM headlamps, celebrate the world premiere of a welcome feature. This taillight show welcomes and says goodbye to the vehicle user similarly to the familiar welcome feature of the blue optical-fibre show in the front headlamp.
Sporty, Luxurious Interior with Refined Details
The interior of the new E-Class Coupé embodies the synthesis of sporty emotion and luxurious intelligence.
The two optionally available high-resolution and brilliant 12.3inch displays – unique in this segment - are merged under a single lens to produce a Widescreen Cockpit that appears to float in space. The key design element, it emphasises the width, as does the fascia-spanning trim, which terminates with a dynamic sweep in the door panel. Positioned in the driver's direct field of vision, the instrument cluster shows virtual instruments, which can be selected by the driver in three different styles, "Classic", "Sport" and "Progressive", depending on which information and views the driver considers relevant.
Diversity to suit every taste
Even the AVANTGARDE standard equipment package is abundantly configured. Alternatively, there is the AMG Line, which differs from AVANTGARDE by such features as front and rear bumpers as well as side skirts and larger AMG Styling wheels. The dots in the diamond radiator grille are chrome-plated, while the brake discs on the front axle are perforated. The interior boasts such features as seats in high-grade ARTICO/DINAMICA in black with grey contrasting topstitching, the Seat Comfort package and an AMG leather sports steering wheel. Additional individualisation options for both lines come courtesy of the Night package with a host of design details in high-gloss black and tinted side windows.
Larger and Luxurious
With a length of 4826 mm, a width of 1860 mm and a height of 1430 mm, the new E-Class Coupé clearly outstrips its predecessor in terms of length, width and height. The significantly larger footprint compared with the previous model is to the benefit of passengers with extra spaciousness and comfort.
Performance with High Tech
Powerful and efficient petrol and diesel engines, all equipped with ECO start/stop and complying with the Euro 6 emissions standard, provide for lively performance and great fun behind the wheel. The available variants include a newly developed four-cylinder diesel engine.
New Four Cylinder Diesel Engine
Designed to meet the future RDE limits, the four-cylinder diesel engine from the new family of Mercedes-Benz engines opens up a new dimension in efficiency. With a displacement of around two litres, the new diesel engine delivers 143 kW, while the E 220 d impresses with a combined NEDC average consumption of 4.0 litres per 100 kilometres. This is equivalent to CO2 emissions of 106 grams per kilometre. In addition, the four-cylinder with single-stage turbocharger and variable turbine geometry is distinguished by a high level of refinement. Both the cylinder head and the crankcase are made of aluminium. The Mercedes-Benz-developed NANOSLIDE® surface coating efficiently reduces the friction between cylinder liner and steel piston.
Suspension – Sporty Comfort
The suspension on the new E-Class Coupé offers agile driving pleasure on winding roads together with exceptional ride comfort. The Coupé comes as standard with DIRECT CONTROL suspension. In the interests of a sporty look, the suspension is 15 millimetres lower than on the Saloon and is tuned for comfort with an amplitude-dependent damping system.
Air Body Control
Alternatively, the new E-Class Coupé can be equipped with multi-chamber air suspension, including all-round roll/pitch/heave stabilisation. Enjoy soft basic suspension, along with the secure feeling of good handling stability at higher speeds.
Choose your own driving characteristics
The dynamic select system enables the driver to influence other vehicle settings – such as the throttle response, ECO start/stop function, shift points of the automatic transmission and more.
Full Smartphone Integration
A new era of connectivity and digitalisation is marked by the infotainment system in the E-Class Coupé with command Online, where your smartphone becomes the digital vehicle key with which the car can be locked and unlocked as well as started.
Clear Roads Ahead
Live Traffic Information allows the reception of up-to-the-minute, accurate traffic information in real-time.
Mercedes Me Connect Concierge Service
A further comfort highlight is the new Concierge Service, which is exclusively available in all E-Class models in combination with Mercedes me connect. From making a restaurant reservation to obtaining tips about tourist routes, information on cultural and sporting events and bookings through to sending navigation destinations directly to the vehicle.
E-Class innovations on board
As a member of the current E-Class family, the new Coupé is significantly more intelligent than its predecessor. It comes with all the features of the E-Class, the most intelligent executive saloon. It is able to warn the driver of an imminent collision, provide optimum support with emergency braking and, if necessary, also autonomously apply the brakes.
Other highlights include drive pilot, which represents Mercedes-Benz's next step along the road to autonomous driving. Not only is it able to keep the car at the correct distance behind vehicles in front on all types of road, but, for the first time, it can also automatically follow them at a speed of up to 210 km/h.
Remote Parking Pilot is also new: for the first time, this system allows the vehicle to be moved into and out of garages and parking spaces remotely using a smartphone app, enabling the occupants to get into and out of the car easily, even where space is very tight.
E-Class Coupé with Tradition
As an exclusive and sporty coupé, the latest member of the EClass family can look back on an almost fifty-year history. Its first ancestor was unveiled by MercedesBenz in 1968 (at that time known as the "Stroke Eight" coupé). Further model series followed – for a while also under the name CLK. Each generation combined superb design with agile sportiness and contemporary luxury at a high level.
