Mercedes-Benz Unveils New E-Class Coupe
Mercedes-Benz at the Geneva Motor Show will present the Coupe range in the new E-Class. When the E-Class coupe goes on sale in the U.S. in June, it will be offered in two models, the E350 with a 268-hp V6 and the E550 with a 382-hp V8.
With its coupe side aspect-no B-pillars and fully retractable side windows-the new E-Class Coupe is being presented as a sporty interpretation of the E-Class' dynamic design. Mercedes says the most aerodynamic variant of the Coupe achieves a new world best in terms of drag coefficient. The company claims this model is the world's most aerodynamically efficient series-production car.
The model program includes two new 4-cylinder engines, which use up to 17 percent less fuel with an increase in performance and torque. The new E-Class Coupe's standard-fit agility control suspension adjusts automatically to the current driving situation.
The new Coupe offers technical innovations such as selective damper control, drowsiness detection, and preventive occupant protection. As a feature specific to the Coupe, the Dynamic Driving package allows different suspension setups such as Adaptive Main Beam Assist, road sign recognition, and an automatic emergency braking system.
