Like the Saloon and Estate models, Mercedes-Benz has completely revised the Coupe and Cabriolet members of the E-Class family.
The main feature of the new E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet is the revised front with new headlamps comprising a single headlamp lens over all functional elements. The headlamps are fitted with anti-dazzle LED lights as standard, with full LED technology now available for the first time in this class as an option. Flowing light elements within the headlamps reinforce the "twin-headlamp" look which is typical of the E-Class. New front bumpers with a more pronounced V-shape and large air intakes considerably accentuate the dynamism.
The Coupe has classic proportions with a long bonnet, elongated side line, flat roof line, and powerful tail end.
The four-seater Cabriolet model also has fully retractable side windows, with a continuous shoulder line that ascends slightly as it runs from the front to the boot lid.
Inside the vehicles, stylish materials dominate alongside clean-cut surfaces. The new E-Class family is indicated by an analogue clock between the redesigned air outlets, as well as by controls in silver chrome. The interior is characterised by the redesigned centre console without selector lever, as well as a three-spoke multifunction steering wheel.
There is a wide choice of powerful petrol and diesel engines for the E-Class Coupé and Cabriolet. All are highly efficient and equipped with the ECO start/stop system. Six petrol engines are available ranging in output from 135 kW (184 hp) to 300 kW (408 hp) and there are also three diesel engines ranging from 125 kW (170 hp) to 195 kW (265 hp).
A new element is the BlueDIRECT four-cylinder petrol engine with spray-guided direct injection, based on the same trend-setting technology used in the latest generation of six and eight-cylinder engines from Mercedes-Benz. The new BlueDIRECT four-cylinder petrol engines already meet the EU6 standard which will apply from 2015.
