TECHNOLOGY: The Coupé features a radar-based collision warning system.
LIKE the Saloon and Estate models, Mercedes-Benz has completely revised the Coupe and Cabriolet members of the E-Class family. New additions include powerful and Blue DIRECT four-cylinder engines featuring new injection technology and assistance systems, which come under the heading “Intelligent drive”. These are systems which can help to prevent accidents with crossing vehicles or pedestrians, like the Active Lane Keeping Assist and the anti-glare, permanent high-beam headlamps, for example.
The E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet have a base price of €40,450 and €44,100, respectively.
The main feature of the new look E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet is the revised front with new headlamps comprising a single headlamp lens over all functional elements. The headlamps are fitted with anti-dazzle LED lights as standard, with full LED technology now available for the first time in this class as an option. Flowing light elements within the headlamps reinforce the “twin-headlamp” look which is typical of the E-Class.
New front bumpers with a more pronounced V-shape and large air intakes considerably accentuate the dynamism of these vehicles.
Inside the vehicles, stylish materials dominate alongside clean-cut surfaces and the two-part trim which stretches across the entire dashboard. It can be selected in a wood or aluminium look, thereby rounding off the high-quality overall impression made by each interior.
One special benefit of the new E-Class Cabriolet is that, thanks to the acoustic soft top with its particularly high-grade insulation, the vehicle has the lowest noise level in its class.
As standard, the Coupe and Cabriolet are fitted with the Agility Control suspension with selective damping system. The shock absorbers adapt to road surface conditions, thereby ensuring a high level of ride comfort.
The Audio 20 CD Radio also comes as standard equipment. It features a 14.7 cm TFT colour display, twin tuner and MP3-capable CD player as well as a USB connection.
Mercedes-Benz is offering a wide choice of powerful petrol and diesel engines for the E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet. All are equipped with the ECO start/stop system. Six petrol engines are available ranging in output from 135 kW (184 hp) to 300 kW (408 hp) and there are also three diesel engines ranging from 125 kW (170 hp) to 195 kW (265 hp).
