on Mar 17, 2017 05:11 PM EDT
The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe E400 seems like a simple modification of the previous generation. It would use the 2017 E300 sedan as a base, remove the two doors and change the year. It's a simple rebrand of a popular car that would assure the car maker huge sales. But for Mercedes, a simple rehash wouldn't suffice as the new E-Class Coupe is in a class of its own.
The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe E400 shares the same design language of the 2017 E-Class Sedan but the proportions are different and the silhouette sexier. But besides the changes in the appearance, the new E-Class Coupe sports a beast of an engine. With a sportier look, comes a sportier engine which the new car has in spades. The sedan came in with w 2.0-liter turbo but the updated version will feature a 3.0 -liter biturbo V-6 engine as reported by Road and Track. With this engine and a much lighter weight, the Coupe will leave the sedan in the dust.
The engine is basically a detuned version of the AMG E43's 396 horsepower engine. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe will sport a lesser but still competent 329 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque. Power was delivered smoothly but efficiently as reported by CNET.
There will be three different types of suspension for the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe E400. These include the fully fixed standard suspension, the Dynamic Body Control system and the Air Body Control system. The Coupe will also feature several driving modes to choose from that can be toggled in the center console. These include the Eco, Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus. The driving modes will affect the steering and throttle mapping as well as suspension settings.
In terms of interior, 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe E400 is no slouch. The cabin is accentuated by the chromed metallic trim that contrasts the black leather on the dashboard and white leather seats.
