Design Meets Agility: The All-New 2018 E-Class Coupe
Mercedes has always had a healthy respect for tradition, with a rich history of brilliant engineering and peerless, beautiful vehicles. One look at the 2018 E-Class Coupe and you’ll see that that tradition is alive and well—but also that this new vehicle is firmly focused on the road ahead.
With its exclusive “pillarless” design, coupled with four frameless power windows, the 2018 E-Class Coupe has an unmatched look that rivals the best of European art. It’s entirely new body is designed for sleek athletic agility, supported by radiating chrome-tipped pins, LED taillights, and multiple stylish wheel options.
As awe-inspiring as it is on the outside, the all-new E-Class Coupe is equally as opulent and inviting once you get inside. Comfortable, individual seating for four complements a spacious cabin with luxurious details, like exotic wood trim, while a standard panoramic sunroof offers amazing views of the sky above.
Of course, none of that matters without the incredible Mercedes-Benz performance at the heart of the 2018 E-Class Coupe. The all-new 2018 E-Class Coupe is longer and wider yet lighter and tighter featuring a 329 horsepower biturbo V6 engine, plus an advanced, flexible 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission and offers 4MATIC all-wheel drive. It zooms from 0 to 60 in less than 5.5 seconds, all while offering the driver absolute, precise control as well as Drive Pilot, the next step towards semi-autonomous driving.
The all-new 2018 E-Class Coupe is rounded out by advanced Mercedes entertainment and safety features, including Car-to-X technology, a 12.3-inch display, and PRE-SAFE Sound. Taking its cue from the E-Class sedan, the most intelligent sedan ever, Car to X technology communicates with a central hub to report and receive updates about driving conditions beyond the vehicles’ line of sight. The 12.3-inch screen has numerous comfort settings with an intuitive touchpad on the console and is used for navigation and entertainment as well. There is also a second 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster also available. Apple Car Play and Android Auto are standard. PRE-SAFE Sound senses an impending collision and pre-triggers your ears’ natural defense against loud noises to help prevent damage to your hearing from a collision.
