Passionate driving enjoyment

Stuttgart – With an intelligently modified, distinctive design, a new, high-grade interior, new, efficient engines and new assistance systems, Mercedes-Benz has comprehensively updated the E-Class Coupé and Cabriolet.

In addition, these particularly sportily designed members of the E-Class family have taken a large step forward in terms of lively performance, efficiency and ecology. This is the result, amongst other things, of powerful new BlueDIRECT four-cylinder petrol engines employing direct injection technology.

The new E-Class Coupé and Cabriolet can be ordered with immediate effect, with prices starting at 42,661.50 euros for the Coupé and 47,600 euros for the Cabriolet. They will be available for collection at Mercedes-Benz dealerships from June.

The classic Coupé and the four-seater Cabriolet of the Mercedes-Benz

E-Class are amongst the desirable vehicles in their respective segments. Now Mercedes-Benz has completely revised both models. The design of the exterior and interior alike is fresh and sharp. The main feature of the new look E-Class Coupé and Cabriolet is the revised front with new headlamps featuring a single headlamp lens comprising all functional elements.

The headlamps are fitted with anti-dazzle LED lights and LED daytime running lamps as standard, with full LED technology now available for the first time in this class as an option. New front bumpers with large air intakes and “wing design” chrome trim considerably accentuate the dynamism of these agile vehicles.

Visibly underscoring the rear-wheel drive of these sporty cars is the muscular-looking rear wings which have been retained. Also new are the tail lamps featuring LED fibre optics.

Inside the vehicles, stylish materials dominate alongside clean-cut surfaces and the two-part trim, in wood or aluminium, which stretches across the entire dashboard. The instrument cluster has dials backed in white, while the trapezoid-shaped, high-gloss framed, full-colour display features TFT technology.

High-tech engines: efficiency meets performance

A wide choice of powerful and efficient petrol and diesel engines for the Coupé and Cabriolet – all equipped with the ECO start/stop system – ensure outstanding performance combined with exemplary efficiency. New units include the BlueDIRECT four-cylinder petrol engines in the E 200 and E 250, featuring the same technology used in the latest six-cylinder engine from Mercedes-Benz.

Both of the four-cylinder petrol engines meet the future EU6 standard, while in the Coupé they even comply with the strict criteria of efficiency class A.

The six-cylinder petrol engines in the Coupé and Cabriolet are also state-of-the-art. In the E 400, for the first time the six-cylinder features a biturbo drive and sets new standards in this class for performance and fuel consumption.

The efficient four-cylinder diesel engines in the E 220 CDI and E 250 CDI are also more economical, thanks amongst other things to a revised drive train, and are classified in efficiency class A+.

New level of safety with intelligent assistance systems

Both the Coupé and Cabriolet models of the E-Class are fitted as standard with COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST, a radar-based collision warning system with adaptive Brake Assist. It helps to significantly reduce the risk of a rear-end collision.

Also forming part of the standard specification is a further improved ATTENTION ASSIST, which is now able to warn of inattentiveness and drowsiness across a wider speed range.

In addition, all assistance systems of the E-Class family which are either new or now feature significantly extended functions are also optionally available, for example the new Driving Assistance package Plus.
