Engine Capability

The three highly efficient and powerful petrol engines available for the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet are also equipped with the ECO start/stop function. A new element is the BlueDirect four-cylinder petrol engine with spray-guided direct injection, based on the same groundbreaking technologies used in the latest generation of six- and eight-cylinder engines from Mercedes-Benz.

The E 500 Coupe is powered by a V8 engine producing 300kW of power at 5000-5750 rpm and 600Nm of torque at 1600-4750 rpm, resulting in acceleration from 0-100 km/h in 4.8 seconds (4.9 seconds for the Cabriolet) and a top speed of 250 km/h. Combined fuel consumption is at 8.9-litres/100km (9.1-litres/100 km for the Cabriolet) with CO2 emissions of 209 g/km (213 g/km for the Cabriolet).

The E 400 Coupe is powered by a V6 engine producing 245kW of power at 5500 rpm and 480Nm of torque at 1400-4000 rpm, resulting in acceleration from 0-100 km/h in 5.2 seconds (5.3 seconds for the Cabriolet) and a top speed of 250 km/h. Combined fuel consumption is at 7.6-7.4-litres/100km (7.9-7.6-litres/100 km for the Cabriolet) with CO2 emissions of 177-172 g/km (185-178 g/km for the Cabriolet).

The E 250 Coupe is powered by a L4 engine producing 155kW of power at 5500 rpm and 350Nm of torque at 1200-4000 rpm, resulting in acceleration from 0-100 km/h in 7.1 seconds (7.5 seconds for the Cabriolet) and a top speed of 250 km/h (245 km/h for the Cabriolet). Combined fuel consumption is at 6.1-5.7-litres/100km (6.5-6.2-litres/100 km for the Cabriolet) with CO2 emissions of 142-132 g/km (150-144 g/km for the Cabriolet).

Exterior and Interior Design Features

The redesigned E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet comes with a fresh front-end and a new single-rib front grille with central Three-Pointed Star. On either side there are sleek new headlamps fitted with LED technology in the main beams as well as LED daytime running lamps fitted as standard. The inside of the headlamps features flowing LED fibre-optic cables which resemble the typical four-eyed look of the E-Class.

Adding an extra dose of aesthetic aggression to the front apron is a new bumper with large air intakes and wing design with chrome details, and a sports car grille, while at the rear new tail lights and a broad-looking rear bumper also in wing design and chrome-look trim finish off the look. The models can be further accentuated with the optional Sports packages including a two-pipe exhaust system with trapezoidal tailpipes.

The inside of the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet is furnished with stylish wood/aluminium materials and structured surfaces like the two-part trim element that stretches across the entire dashboard and a new three-tube instrument cluster with white dials, a trapezoid-shaped full-colour TFT display with a high-gloss frame and sport seats with integrated head restraints.

Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive Features

The new E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet models feature sophisticated safety technology like Agility Control and sport-tuned Dynamic Handling suspensions, 4MATIC all-wheel-drive technology, Next-generation Attention Assist system, and a new Pre-Safe Plus system. The optional Driver Assistance Package features Distronic Plus adaptive cruise control with Steering Assist and PRE-SAFE Brake, plus Active Blind Spot Assist and Active Lane Keeping Assist.
