About twelve inches longer than its predecessor


After the Sedan and the T-model together with its off-road branch called All-Terrain, the coupé of the new Mercedes E-Class will be launched in March 2017 - we will probably have to wait a little longer for the convertible.

More smooth surfaces
The main difference to the old Coupé is the size of the vehicle: With 4.83 meters, the new is over twelve centimeters longer. Also width (plus seven centimeters) and height (plus three centimeters) significantly increase. This benefits the passengers, especially in the form of more legroom (plus seven centimeters). A new feature of the design is the fact that the line falls away at the level of the door handles, and the rear wheel arches are no longer exposed. The sportiness emphasize the two power domes on the bonnet and the now quite large rear spoiler at the trunk edge.

World Champion: Welcome function at the back
As before, the side windows are frameless and there is no B-pillar. As with the predecessor, the LED rear lights are much slimmer than the sedan. In connection with the LED Multibeam headlights (known from the limousine), they welcome the driver for the first time: When the car is opened, the LEDs go successively from the inside outwards, while the reverse is reversed.

Interior: New air nozzles with turbines
New in the interior are the air nozzles with their turbine look, as well as the seats are more sporty than the sedan. Also new are two bright wooden parts. Unlike the limousine, only the equipment with star is offered in the grill, ie avant-garde and AMG line. The latter is distinguished by other bumper as well as side skirts and larger wheels. The dots in the "diamond grille" are chromed here and there are black seats with gray contrast seams, a standard "seat comfort package" as well as a leather sports steering wheel. Both equipment variants can be combined with a night package (with details in glossy black and tinted side windows).

Four engines and three landing gears
At the start of the market are a diesel and three petrol engines, all of which are known from the sedan. The self-ignition is the 220 d with the 194 hp version of the new 2.0-liter four-cylinder. In addition, the E 200 with 184 hp, the E 300 with 245 hp as well as the only six-cylinder of the E 400 4Matic with 333 hp. All four models are always equipped with automatic gearboxes - also the E 200, which is delivered with the hand-held sedan. Further motors and 4Matic versions are to follow. The Coupé is delivered with a "Direct Control" suspension, which is 15 millimeters lower than the sedan and has an amplitude-dependent damping system - comparable to the previous Agility-Control chassis. Dynamic body control is available as an option, as is the new multi-chamber air suspension including variable damping.

Real-time traffic jam now cheaper
A new addition is the Infotainment system Audio 20 GPS, which stands out from the well-known Audio 20 USB by a real-time jam warning. This function was previously reserved for Comand Online, which costs more than 3,000 Euros. Staggered distances are displayed in the form of green lines. The prices for the E-Class Coupé start at 49.052 Euro for the E 200 with automatic. This made the car significantly more expensive: the identical motorized old E 200 coupe with manual gears cost only 43,554 euros. The other prices of the new coupé: The E 220 d is available from 50.575 euros, the E 300 is positioned for 54.740 euros and the E 400 4Matic for 64.807 euros.
