Heading to dealerships in summer 2017, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe is longer, wider and taller than its predecessor. It measures 190-inches long, making it 4.8-inches longer than the previous model, as well as 73.2-inches wide, which is 2.9-inches wider than before. The stylish coupe also sits 1.3-inches taller at 56.3 inches. As a result, the larger footprint benefits passengers with extra space and comfort, especially in terms of rear legroom, front and rear shoulder room, as well as rear headroom.
For the U.S. market, the E-Class Coupe will initially launch with the E400 and E400 4MATIC models, powered by a 3.0-liter biturbo V6 engine with 329 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque. Both models are equipped as standard with the 9G-Tronic nine-speed automatic transmission, allowing the standard model to go zero-to-60 mph in 5.2 seconds. The 4MATIC all-wheel-drive variant does the sprint in 5.5 seconds.
The model will come standard with a central 12.3-inch high-resolution COMAND display, and available as an option is the 12.3-inch widescreen instrument cluster that is unique to the segment. Buyers can also opt for an available Sport Package that adds edgier details like front and rear bumpers, as well as side skirts and larger AMG-style wheels. The package also includes a different front grille with chrome-tipped blocks and an AMG leather sports steering wheel for the cabin.
