The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupé is due to hit the market in 2017. However, numerous spy recordings of the car have already surfaced online. The latest pictures of the vehicle show it with partial camouflage, which gives us a good overview of most of its exterior features.
According to the source Of the spy shots, the upcoming E-Class Coupe will compete with the BMW 6 Series next year. Since the E-Class lies between the S-Class Coupé and the C-Class Coupé series, it still bears noticeably many stylistic elements of the two.
Although the 2018 E-Class Coupé bears a strong resemblance to its counterpart to the sedan – as both are based on the same platform – the Coupé variant takes away the sedan’s B-pillars. The absence of the B-pillars makes the coupe slimmer than the sedan.
The report speculates that the E-Class coupe could get rear-wheel drive. This gives the car more interior space and more trunk space.
The E-Class Coupe will likely have the same range of engines as the E-Class Sedan. So expect the same four-cylinder engines for the car’s gasoline and diesel power units. Of course, the E-Class Coupé is highlighted by its AMG performance model. The Mercedes-AMG E 43 Coupé, which bridges the performance gap between the standard Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupé and the Mercedes-AMG E63 Coupé, is also possible.
Finally, the E-Class Coupe will most likely reflect the interior elements as well as the technologies available in the E-Class Sedan such as the pair of 12.3-inch displays in the dashboard and the touch-sensitive controls.
