MERCEDES-BENZ’S new E-Class coupe
range is larger than before and is almost a full
four-seater rather than a two-plus-two as in
This added usability hasn’t spoiled its style,
though. The low, sleek proportions work well,
it has a low grille, long bonnet with power
domes, and the cabin sits further back. All four
side windows are frameless and there is no
New E-Class coupe is 123 mm longer, 74 mm
wider, and sits on a 113 mm longer wheelbase.
Rear legroom up by 74 mm and shoulder room
34 mm more.
Australian drivers love their sporty models so
all new E-Class coupes have an AMG Line body
The widescreen cockpit is one of our
favourite features of the new E-Class sedans
and naturally it’s incorporated into the coupe.
The range opens with the E 220 d (diesel)
coupe with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine
producing 143 kW and 400 Nm. Drive is to the
rear wheels through a 9G-Tronic nine-speed
automatic. Inside, even this lowest cost model
has leather trim and the Mercedes’ Comand
infotainment system with Android Auto or
The Driver Assistance safety package
includes parking assist to make life easy as
coupes are usually harder to see out of than
sedans and wagons.
The E 300 is powered by a 2.0-litre, four-
cylinder turbo-petrol engine producing 180
kW and 370 Nm. It too uses the 9G-Tronic
automatic. Over and above the E 220 diesel
Coupe’s specification it has 20-inch AMG alloy
wheels, a sports exhaust system, Air Body
Control air suspension, heated front seats and
MultiBeam LED headlights.
The topline model, the Mercedes-Benz E
400 4Matic (all-wheel-drive) has a 3.0-litre, V6-
cylinder bi-turbo petrol engine producing 245
kW and 480 Nm. Transmission is by a sportier
version of the nine-speed 9G-Tronic automatic.
With all that grunt and the advantage of
driving through all four wheels it’s a full-on
sports model that gets from zero to 100 km/h in
just 5.3 seconds.
Additions over the E 300 coupe include a
panoramic glass sunroof, 13-speaker, 590-Watt
Burmester surround sound system, head-up
display, metallic paint and privacy glass.
To launch the new E-Class coupe Mercedes
has come up with an ‘Edition 1 Package’. This
features two-tone nappa leather trim, including
on the sports steering wheel. There’s also
the healthy Air-Balance air filtering package,
Designo cashmere white magno paintwork, bi-
colour 20- inch AMG multi-spoke alloy wheels,
exterior design elements in black, and Edition
Only 555 cars are being built for the global
market. Mercedes-Benz Australia tell us it’s,
“securing an allocation for its customers to add
to E 300 coupe or E 400 4Matic coupe models”,
but won’t tell us how many. It might be an idea
to ring your favourite dealer asap.
We have driven two variants of the new
Mercedes-Benz E-Class coupe on an extensive
program in Victoria. However Mercedes-Benz
Australia has asked us not to publish details
until May 31. This is to give a number of other
journalists a chance to be cycled through the
limited number of cars currently off the early
shipment of this new model.
Stay tuned for our full driving impressions
next week. Suffice to say at this stage we have
tested the back seats and found they are suited
to adults. However there is likely to be the
inevitable requirement of legroom compromise
if tall people travel behind one another.
