After the world’s most intelligent executive sedan, the successful E-Class family now welcomes another new member: the Coupé. Based technically on the Sedan, the sportily exclusive Coupé marks a next step in the evolution of the Mercedes-Benz design idiom. With its perfect proportions, the new Coupé exhibits a puristic, surface-accentuated design with reduced lines and sensuous forms. Both hot and cool, the reduced design idiom represents beauty and elegance while emphasising the Coupé’s sporty and luxurious personality.
The interior of the new E-Class Coupé embodies the synthesis of sporty emotion and luxurious intelligence.
The two optionally available high-resolution and brilliant 12.3‑inch displays – unique in this segment – are merged under a single lens to produce a Widescreen Cockpit that appears to float in space. The key design element, it emphasises the width, as does the fascia-spanning trim, which terminates with a dynamic sweep in the door panel. Positioned in the driver’s direct field of vision, the instrument cluster shows virtual instruments, which can be selected by the driver in three different styles, “Classic”, “Sport” and “Progressive”, depending on which information and views the driver considers relevant.
A new era of connectivity and digitalisation is marked by the infotainment system in the E-Class Coupé with COMAND Online. This includes effortless integration of the smartphone into the vehicle’s infotainment system by means of capacitive aerial coupling and wireless charging. This means that compatible mobile phones can be charged wirelessly and also connected to the vehicle’s exterior aerial. This dispenses with the need to find a plug and connect a cable. There is an added advantage: using Near Field Communication, the customer’s smartphone becomes the digital vehicle key with which the car can be locked and unlocked as well as started. The vehicle of course also features ability to use Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto.
The new E-Class Coupé offers the same function with the Audio 20 GPS with GARMIN MAP PILOT SYSTEM as well. Live Traffic Information allows the reception of up-to-the-minute, accurate traffic information in real-time. Other new features include a Free Flow display

E-Class Coupé with tradition
As an exclusive and sporty coupé, the latest member of the E‑Class family can look back on an almost fifty-year history. Its first ancestor was unveiled by Mercedes‑Benz in 1968 (at that time known as the “Stroke Eight” coupé). Further model series followed – for a while also under the name CLK. Each generation combined superb design with agile sportiness and contemporary luxury at a high level.
A stipulation in the terms and conditions when purchasing a new Mercedes-Benz passenger car is that customers need to register for Mercedes me connect to activate the class-leading PremiumDrive 6-years/100,000 km maintenance contract, a value-add at no additional cost.
