Taking the night by storm is an afterthought in this beauty

March 31, 2018
 
With its expressive coupé-esque proportions, clear and sensual design and long-distance comfort for four people, the new E-Class Coupé combines the beauty and classic virtues of a grand tourer with state-of-the-art technology. It also offers the intelligence of the E-Class family with full smartphone integration, Widescreen Cockpit and the latest driver assistance systems with the option of, among other things, partially automated driving. Powerful engines with low exhaust emissions and comfortable suspensions with selective damping provide the guarantee of a sporty and agile driving experience.
 
 
The coupé-esque proportions typical of Mercedes-Benz are characterised by a distinctive front end with low-positioned sports grille and central star, a long bonnet with powerdomes, a rearward-shifted, squat greenhouse and a muscular rear end. The dynamic looks are underlined by four frameless side windows and the absence of a B-pillar.
 
With these clear forms, the design of the Coupé conveys an air of luxury and style alike. Based technically on the Saloon, the sportily exclusive Coupé marks a next step in the evolution of the Mercedes-Benz design language.
 
Typical of a Mercedes coupé are the two-part, extremely flat LED tail lamps, which, in combination with MULTIBEAM LED headlamps, celebrate the world premiere of a welcome feature. When the vehicle is opened, the taillight LEDs illuminate from the centre of the vehicle outwards. On locking the vehicle, the light sequence runs in the opposite direction. Thanks to innovative crystal optics, the tail lamps also have a brilliant appearance reminiscent of the glow of a jet engine.
 
 
 
The two optionally available high-resolution and brilliant 12.3-inch displays are merged under a single lens to produce a Widescreen Cockpit that appears to float in space. As the key design element, it emphasises the width, as does the fascia-spanning trim, which terminates with a dynamic sweep in the door panel. A decidedly sporty note is set by the air vents, the form of which is heavily influenced by the look of a turbine engine.
 
Especially for the E-Class Coupé, there is a choice of two new innovative, light wood trim packages in open-pore and high-gloss finishes. Precisely executed seams give emphasis to the seat design of each equipment line. The impressive range of exterior paint finishes is harmoniously matched to the contemporary interior colour scheme. The interior lighting makes exclusive use of durable, energy-saving LED technology.
 
 
The suspension on the new E-Class Coupé offers agile driving pleasure on winding roads together with exceptional ride comfort. The Coupé comes as standard with DIRECT CONTROL suspension. In the interests of a sporty look, the suspension is 15 millimetres lower than on the Saloon and is tuned for comfort with an amplitude-dependent damping system. The DYNAMIC BODY CONTROL suspension with adjustable damping is optionally available. It, too, is set lower. Using a switch in the centre console for the standard DYNAMIC SELECT system, the driver can vary the damping characteristics of this suspension. Three modes are available, offering a wide range of adjustment options: “Comfort”, “Sport” and “Sport+”.
 
 
 
As a member of the current E-Class family, the new Coupé is significantly smarter than its predecessor. It comes with all the features of the E-Class, the most intelligent executive saloon. Active Brake Assist comes as standard. It is able to warn the driver of an imminent collision, provide optimum support with emergency braking and, if necessary, also autonomously apply the brakes.
 
As an exclusive and sporty coupé, the latest member of the E-Class family can look back on an almost fifty-year history. Its first ancestor was unveiled by Mercedes-Benz in 1968 (at that time known as the “Stroke Eight” coupé). Further model series followed – for a while also under the name CLK. Each generation combined superb design with agile sportiness and contemporary luxury at a high level.
