The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe is Bigger, Better, and Loaded with New Features!

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe is bigger, better, and loaded with new features improved greatly over last year’s model. It will first arrive in as the E400 Coupe flavor, which will make its debut in rear-drive and 4MATIC versions at many car shows this year

The E400 will be powered by a twin-turbo, 3.0-liter V-6 mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. This power plant will produce 329 horsepower and claims a 0-60 mph in 5.2 seconds, with the 4MATIC variant needing a little more time, hitting 60 mph in 5.5 seconds.

“With its clear, aesthetic lines, our new E-Class Coupe appeals equally to the heart and mind. It combines contemporary luxury, agile sportiness and high-tech engineering into an automotive personality with spirit, offering exclusive, refined driving pleasure,” said Prof. Dr. Thomas Weber, Daimler AG Board of Management Member, in a release.

Exterior-wise, the two-door E-Class keeps the sedan’s beefy front end, low grille, hood bulges, frameless side windows, beautiful sunroof, and clean uncluttered rear looks.

“Thanks to innovative crystal optics, the tail lamps also have a brilliant stardust appearance similar to the glow of a jet engine,” Mercedes claims. Sounds magical to us, considering the coupe’s top speed.

Inside, the lovely new coupe can seat four comfortably. It features intelligent drive and offers the latest driver assist capabilities. One of the coolest features, Distance Pilot DISTRONIC, has been upgraded; not only can it keep the coupe at a safe distance behind vehicles in front of it, it can now automatically follow them at speeds up to 130 mph.

A 12.3-inch high-resolution COMAND center display that looks like an Apple MacBook sits atop the center stack, directly adjacent to the digital instrument cluster with which it appears to share the same piece of hardware. The latter can be viewed in one of three different styles — Classic, Sport, and Progressive — depending the desired information.

The 2018 E-Class Coupe will go on sale this summer, and looks to be a winner in its class
