The E-Class Coupe: A Return to Personal Luxury
Mercedes-Benz has been the purveyor of personal luxury for more than a century. There is a belief that a two-door coupe is a right solution for a driver to experience a more personal experience on the road. A coupe is a cocoon where success is celebrated and an escape mechanism from the toils of the path towards success.
This is why Mercedes-Benz redesigned the E-Class Coupe. Not just to honor a tradition of accessible two-door cars that dates back decades, but to advance the breed further with the latest design, technology, and engineering expected in today’s Mercedes-Benz.
We had a chance to drive the E 400 4MATIC® Coupe at a recent event. It gave us more impressions on the special feeling this car will give to our customers.
The E-Class coupe and cabriolet are all-new for 2018. They are now aligned with the sedan’s sleeker design, but with its own twist. The rear end is unique on both the coupe and cabriolet, similar to what is seen on the C- and S-Class coupes. The roofline of the coupe compliments the body below the belt line. A pillarless side glass profile provides an open-air feeling when the windows are down, along with superb views all around.
The E-Class Coupe, in particular, is a true 2+2 touring car designed for rear seat passengers, as well as keeping a focus on the driver. Controls are at the driver’s fingertips, including the COMAND® knob controlling the infotainment system. We had the dual widescreens that are customizable for the driver for the right information at the right time. While luxurious and supple the high back leather seats feel, they are also designed for attention to the road. Side bolsters lock your body in for the ride.
Selecting the E 400 provides a special treat under the hood. The 3.0-liter biturbo V6 offers 329 horsepower with the potential of a 0-60 MPH time of 5.2 seconds. It is connected to the 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission offering multiple modes for a more tailored drive. The most important piece of this E 400 Coupe is the availability of 4MATIC® all-wheel drive, ensuring optimal traction in any condition.
What makes a Mercedes-Benz is the infusion of the latest technology and a dedication to vehicle and occupant safety. The E-Class Coupe fuses these elements together with many features – both standard and available – ranging from LED headlamps, PRESAFE® Sound using audible warnings, the 12.3-inch infotainment screen driven by COMAND®, mbrace® CONNECT, Car-to-X Communication – among a few of many on the E-Class Coupe.
Our summation from our drive is simple: the E-Class Coupe is absolutely the complete package in personal luxury. We hope you agree. Contact us or stop by Mercedes-Benz of Eugene to find out more about the E-Class Coupe. Purchase or lease one today!
