Mercedes rounds out E-Class stable with sporty two-door

Mercedes rounds out E-Class stable with sporty two-door

Priced from INR 74.35 lakh, ex-showroom, New Delhi, power to the new Mercedes AMG C43 coupe comes from the same V6 3.0 liter which is seen onboard the C450 AMG and SLC43 AMG.

Like the E-Class sedan, the Coupe will be offered in Avantgarde and AMG Line grades. Don't forget to check out those new vents, influenced by the look of a turbine engine and "styled down to the smallest detail". It is longer by five inches, taller by one-and-a-half inches and wider by three inches than its predecessor, providing more legroom and headroom for the driver and passengers, according to vehicle and Driver.

The new E Class Coupe was supposed to be revealed at the 2017 Detroit Motor Show but Mercedes Benz has revealed the new auto on its website. The 2018 Mercedes E-Class Coupe has been made to look like the real coupe with its two doors instead of four.

The C43 AMG will sprint from 0-100km h in just 4.7 seconds and will keep on accelerating till it hits the electronic speed limiter at 250km

The extended wheelbase and higher roof also gives the E-Class Coupe more head and legroom than its predecessor. It is the same minimalist design technique that is also evident on the C and S Class coupes.

A 12.3-inch digital wide-screen instrument cluster is available, which can be selected by the driver in three styles: classic, sport and progressive. Remote Parking Pilot will allow the E-Class Coupe to be moved in and out of garages or parking spaces remotely, via a smartphone app, enabling the occupants to get into and out of the auto easily, even where space is very tight.

Moving away from the dashboard, the E-Class coupe gets fine leather upholstery as well as leather elements all around the cabin. There's also a mid-range E300 petrol engine and range-topping all-wheel drive E400 4Matic. Track width has swelled by 67mm at the front and 68mm at the rear too, giving the 2017 E-Class Coupe a bulkier road presence. The output of the unit is at 184 hp with 300 Nm of torque. The E 300 with a 4-cylinder in-line 1991cc engine with 180kW and 370Nm of torque and a E 400 4MATIC with a V-6 2996cc engine that produces 245kW of power and 480Nm of torque. The icing on the cake is the fact we're looking at a limited-run "Edition 50" scheduled to come out next year together with the regular variant to celebrate half a century of AMG.
