E-Class Coupe launched
First deliveries will take place in April 2017. Coupe version of E-Class gets same engines and impressive interior with the option of two 12.3-inch high res displays.
The suspension on the new E-Class Coupe offers greater driving pleasure combined with exceptional ride comfort. The Coupe comes as standard with Direct Control suspension. The suspension is 15mm lower than on the Saloon and is tuned for comfort with an amplitude-dependent damping system.
Alternatively, the new E-Class Coupe can be equipped with multi-chamber air suspension, including all-round roll/pitch/heave stabilisation. Using the Dynamic Select switch, the driver can also select different suspension characteristics in combination with the Air Body Control system: “Comfort”, “Eco”, “Sport”, “Sport +” and “Individual”.
With a length of 4,826 mm, a width of 1,860 mm and a height of 1,430 mm, the new E-Class Coupé is clearly larger than its predecessor. The main benefit of the wider track, with 1,605 mm at the front (+67 mm) and 1,609 mm at the rear (+68 mm), is the enhanced driving dynamics.

Active Brake Assist comes as standard. It is able to warn the driver of an imminent collision, provide optimum support with emergency braking and, if necessary, also autonomously apply the brakes. In addition to slower-moving, stopping or stationary vehicles, it can also detect pedestrians crossing in the danger zone ahead of the vehicle.
