The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupé will be revealed at the Detroit motor show in January before going on sale in Spring 2017.
The svelte two-door coupé version of the E-Class Saloon is aimed squarely at the BMW 6 Series and Audi A5, and has hit the road in a final round of durability testing prior to a planned premiere at the Detroit motor show in early January 2017.
The new E-Class Coupé forms the basis of an all-new E-Class Cabriolet, which is also set to go on UK sale next year. That car will again feature a fabric hood as well and a two-plus-two seating layout, and here we can see the interior of the hard-top version.
Set to reach UK showrooms next April with an initially limited line-up of petrol and diesel engines, the new E-Class Coupé is the first Mercedes-Benz model to reflect a more conservative design lineage being introduced by the German car maker’s design boss, Gorden Wagener.
The fifth-generation E-Class Saloon was unveiled at the Detroit motor show in January. It adopts many of the features of the larger S-Class, including a dual-screen digital instrument cluster and multimedia display. The new E-Class Coupé largely shares its interior architecture and appointments with the E-Class Saloon and Estate, including its optional 12.3in digital instrument display and multi-function steering wheel featuring touch sensitive pads as part of the latest Comand APS NTG 5 infotainment system.
