New Mercedes E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet Revealed

Following the last month online debut of the updated Saloon and Estate models, Mercedes-Benz has now revealed the new E-Class Coupé and Cabriolet. The whole range will make its world debut next week at the Detroit Auto Show.

Just like the saloon and estate, the coupe and cabriolet now feature single headlamp units with LED daytime lights, giving a similar appearance as on the quad headlights on the outgoing model.

Both cars also get a new front bumper, new rear bumper with a wider diffuser and revised LED tail lights. The muscular-looking rear wing has been retained.

At launch, there will be two petrol engines available; E 200 BlueEFFICIENCY and E 250 BlueEFFICIENCY, and three diesel engines; E 220 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY, E 250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY and E 350 BlueTEC.

Two transmissions will be offered in the future: a six-speed manual transmission and the 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission with DIRECT SELECT lever and DIRECT SELECT shift paddles.

Both the coupe and cabriolet are fitted in standard with COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST, a radar-based collision warning system with adaptive brake assist systems, as well as ATTENTION ASSIST, which is now able to warn of inattentiveness and drowsiness across a wider speed range.

New E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet will go on sale in April. Prices will be announces closer to launch.
