Timeless meets ultramodern in the E-Class coupe cabin. Hand-polished wood, hand-fitted leather and crisp metal trim surround advanced technology and intuitive convenience. From any of its four individual seats, the view outside through its pillarless side windows and Panorama glass roof is as inviting as the feel of this rich cabin is enticing.
Featuring a color-LCD display and a central controller on the console, the Cockpit Management and Data (COMAND) system gives you convenient control of audio, video, hands-free calling and optional navigation functions. Many features can also be accessed via the integrated steering-wheel controls.
Premium leather 3-spoke multifunction steering wheel
Wrapped in supple Premium leather, the 3-spoke steering wheel includes power tilt and telescopic adjustment and multifunction controls for the audio and information systems.
HD Radio™ receiver (Optional Equipment)
Delivering remarkably clear audio that gives AM stations the crispness of FM radio, and FM stations CD-grade sound, HD Radio® also offers a larger bandwidth that can actually increase the number of stations available to you.
Mercedes-Benz mbrace (Optional Equipment)
The newest offering of in-vehicle services from Mercedes-Benz, mbrace™ provides peace of mind 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, by keeping you connected to the personal assistance you need, at the moment you need it. Mercedes-Benz mbrace is a collection of nearly twenty different Safety & Security, Navigation & Destination Planning, and Convenience services that can be accessed quickly and easily in your vehicle, online or with a compatible smartphone through the mbrace Mobile Application.
Premium Leather interior (Optional Equipment)
Upgrade the standard leather in the cabin of your E-Class Coupe—and also cover the armrests and door panels—with supple Premium leather that has been selected, gauged and fitted by hand.
Bi-xenon headlamps with active curve illumination (Optional Equipment)
Bi-Xenon headlamps deliver greater visibility than halogen headlamps because their brighter, whiter light is much closer to natural daylight. Active Curve Illumination helps you see better into corners at night, swiveling the headlamps as you steer to increase usable illumination by up to 90% over conventional fixed headlamps.
KEYLESS-GO (Optional Equipment)
A leap in ease and efficiency pioneered by Mercedes-Benz, KEYLESS-GO lets you unlock, start and drive away without removing the SmartKey from your pocket or purse. You can lock and unlock the doors with a touch of the exterior handles, and start the engine by stepping on the brake pedal and pushing the Start/Stop button on the dashboard. You can also start the vehicle in the conventional way by removing the Start/Stop button and inserting the SmartKey into the ignition.
PARKTRONIC with Parking Guidance (Optional Equipment)
The next best thing to a personal valet, this system helps you not only identify appropriately sized parking spaces, but also maneuver into them. Using sensors from the DISTRONIC PLUS system to determine if available spots can accommodate your vehicle, Parking Guidance then displays steering instructions to make the space yours. While parking, ultrasonic sensors in the front and rear bumpers detect nearby objects within the system's field of view. Audible signals and illuminated displays help you maneuver with confidence.
11-way air bag protection
An advanced system of 9 acid-free air bags offers 11-way occupant protection. Dual two-stage front air bags, front side-impact air bags, front pelvic air bags, a driver's knee air bag, and window curtain air bags for both seating rows are standard. Rear side-impact air bags are optional.
NECK-PRO(R) front active head restraints
In the case of a rear impact exceeding a pre-set threshold, NECK-PRO front head restraints move forward and slightly upward, reducing the distance between the head restraints and the heads of front-seat occupants. This action helps limit the rearward travel of their heads, thus reducing the possibility or severity of whiplash-type neck injuries.
5.5 liter V-8 Engine
One of our most advanced engines generates 382 hp and 391 lb-ft of peak torque, with an exceptional 75 percent of that torque on tap at just 1,000 rpm. To help reduce engine weight while increasing durability, the engine block is diecast from aluminum with a solid bed plate, an ideal construction for performance and durability A dual-stage intake and continuously variable timing of both its intake and exhaust valves adds to its efficiency while helping reduce its emissions.
7-speed automatic transmission
The industry's first 7-speed automatic transmission remains one of the most versatile automatics on the market. A wider range of closely spaced gear ratios delivers the ideal response for virtually every driving condition, which means smoother cruising, immediate acceleration, and thanks to two overdrive ratios, improved highway fuel efficiency, too. Its driver-adaptive programming monitors your driving style and adjusts its shift points to match, while Touch Shift control offers manual-style shifting enjoyment anytime you want it.
Delivering powerful, nearly fade-free stopping control, the E-Class Coupe's internally ventilated disc brakes come equipped with Predictive Brake Priming, which sets the brake pads closer to the discs for faster brake response whenever the driver quickly releases the accelerator. The advanced braking system also features Automatic Brake Drying, which helps increase stopping performance in wet conditions by intermittently, and imperceptibly, pressing the brake pads against the rotors when the windshield wipers are in use in order to remove water build-up from the rotor surface.
