2017 Mercedes E-Class Coupe is getting closer to its next year debut. Auto motor und sport’s prototype hunters have caught the 2-door E-Class with less camo than ever.
The E-Class family grows with the Mercedes E-Class Coupe and Cabrio, expected to join the revamped range in Spring 2017. The wagon version T-modell (S 213) will hit Mercedes showrooms this Autumn, while the Audi Allroad rival E-Class All-terrain comes early next year, following its Paris motor show premiere, this week.
Meanwhile, the all-new E-Class Coupe continues to lose its camouflage in the usual striptease game prior to any new model’s official release. In the latest spy pictures, the slender silhouette of the coupe is clearly visible. As with the sedan, the 2017 Mercedes E-Class Coupe features a long bonnet and a flat windscreen which leads the eye to the deeply recessed passenger compartment. Clearly, the two-door E-Class model is heavily based on the design new Coupé S-Class.
Accordingly, the rear lights are narrower than before, giving the tail a brawny yet elegant look. The tailpipes are integrated into the rear apron and are associated with a chrome trim. The trunk lid that opens as only a small hatch is topped by a small rump.
Technically, the new Mercedes E-Class Coupe is naturally similar to the sedan, right down to the MRA modular platform. The interior design, with its large dual 12,3-inch digital displays, is loosely based on the styling of the four-door model already shown.
In the engine department, the E-Class Coupe will focus on the top versions: a top AMG version with the 4.0-liter twin-turbo from the AMG GT (in 476 and 510 hp guise) will be offered right from the outset, as well as an Mercedes-AMG 450 version with the 3.0-liter V6 Biturbo with 403 hp. Of course, at the bottom of the range there will be four-cylinder diesels and gasoline turbos.
