The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe looks poised to roll into the next year with smooth driving, state-of-the-art technology, luxurious style and a powerful engine. This upcoming coupe from the German automotive giant is based on the current sedan model. Despite its sedan origins, the E-Class Coupe will still perfectly behave like a coupe, thanks to a blend of stylistic design choices and performance upgrades. For all those interested in powerful and uncompromising coupe experience, the latest E-Class presents itself as the ultimate option.
2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe – Exterior Design and Updates
As mentioned above, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe is basically an iteration of the sedan model, albeit with two doors. However, in order to bring a whole new experience, the Mercedes-Benz has opted to incorporate a number of new design features. Most of these have the aim of making the car’s appearance even more sporty and aggressive. Despite the shrunken proportions and the muscular details, the E-Class will still preserve that luxurious feel that the S-Class has. When it comes to the design changes themselves, there are a few.
The front of the car is dominated by a redesigned “diamond” grille and a longer hood, which will contribute to the overall aerodynamic feel of the car. On its top, we see a smooth roofline that arches back with grace and fits seamlessly into the upturned decklid. The rear of the E-Class is distinguished by a set of sleek, horizontal taillights and a trunk lid that also acts as a spoiler. All in all, the upcoming E-Class seems like the perfect embodiment of luxury, class, and athleticism.
When it comes to the interior of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe, its space is surprisingly open and generous. Even though this is a shrunken version of the sedan, it still offers plenty of headroom and legroom, both in the front and the back. Thanks to the lack of four side windows and center pillars, the cabin appears much more airy and comfortable. Speaking of the interior materials, one can expect only the best. The entirety of the cabin is covered in high-quality materials, including natural leather, high-gloss finishes, exotic wood trims and more. The coupe’s tech department is top notch, as well. It features a 12.3-inch central command display, along with a secondary 12.3-inch digital cluster display. Other tech equipment and features include an advanced nav system, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, adaptive cruise control, a 1.450-watt audio system, SmartKey remote locking and more.
2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe – Powertrain Options
For its power, the latest 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe will most likely rely on two engines. The first rumored powertrain is a 3.0-liter twin turbo V-6 engine, with 329 horsepower and rear or all-wheel drive. The second variant will probably be a 3.0-liter inline 6, which is reportedly capable of outputting 308 horsepower. With the 329 hp engine, the E-Class is expected to go from 0 to 62 mph in around 5.2 seconds. Finally, both engines will come paired with a 9-speed 9G-Tronic automatic transmission.
2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe – Rumors Date and Expected Price
Although the Mercedes-Benz hasn’t confirmed the coupe’s release date yet, various sources claim that it will hit the U.S. market in early 2018. Its starting price will certainly be above 55.500$, which is the current price for the sedan version.
