The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe has been unveiled ahead of its official debut at the 2017 Detroit Motor Show. This is the latest addition to the E-Class family and is expected to make its way to India only after the launch of current generation E-Class sedan in the country.

The E-Class Coupe appears quite distinctive with a sloping roofline ending in a sleek rear tail which is reminiscent of the bigger S-Coupe. Everything about the new E-Class Coupe is a toned down delineation of the S-Class Coupe. The bonnet creases, low slung fascia incorporating diamond grille, chunky curves, frameless doors, and diminishing B-pillar defines the E-Coupe with overall design being elegant and tasteful to look at. The new E-Coupe is slightly larger than its predecessor as it distinct itself from the C-Class Coupe owing to its larger dimensions.

The interior of the E-Class Coupe is a typical Mercedes-Benz’s cabin. There is a massive 12.3-inch display atop the dashboard is merged with the instrument cluster. Underneath the screen are four turbine-inspired air vents as well as touchpad with handwriting recognition. The rest of the cabin is well appointed as it is borrowed from a regular E-Class.

The E-Class Coupe gets three engine options. The E200d variant has the only diesel turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder unit producing 191bhp and 400Nm. The 2.0-litre petrol engine is available in two states of tune – 181bhp and 300Nm or the 177bhp and 380Nm. The 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine is available with the top-of-the-line E400 4MATIC and produces 328bhp and 480Nm of torque. The 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission is standard. This Coupe is the first two-door E-Class to get a full-blown AMG treatment as well.

The German manufacturer says that the new E-Class Coupe is a spiritual successor to the Mercedes-Benz CLK. The car will be India bound only after the current generation E-Class Sedan is launched in India, so we can expect the E-Coupe to land on our shores late next year followed by the cabriolet. The E-Class Coupe locks horns with the likes of BMW 6 Series Coupé and Audi A5.
