Sometimes you want nothing more than to hit the road in style. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E400 Coupe is as stylish and attractive as it gets. While there are certainly a variety of cars that make a statement on the road, the E-Class Coupe is in a class of its own. Both elegant and detailed, it really creates a special presence on the road and a luxurious experience for its driver.
The architectural framework bears some resemblance to the sedan version, but the coupe is fully and conceptually its own self. Whether your goal is to make a splash while out on the town at night, have a reliable companion in gridlock traffic, or enjoy a leisurely drive on the weekend, the E-Class Coupe is a great choice for the discerning driver.
Power and Performance
The Coupe is powered by a 3.0 twin turbo V-6 that generates 329 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque. This engine is also environmentally conscious and works to lower emissions while never sacrificing anything in performance. One of the clever ways the vehicle can reduce emissions is by employing an ECO start/stop system. When the car cruises to a standstill at lights or idles at any other time, the engine will shut off thus lowering fuel consumption and emissions. Once you lift your foot off the brake, however, the engine will automatically restart without sacrificing any response in acceleration. The Coupe also comes with a new 9 speed automatic transmission that shifts gears quickly but almost unnoticeably. The efficiency of this new transmission is accompanied by it’s quiet and smooth feel. Change gears with the electronic selector and shift paddles and never take your hands off the steering wheel.
In order to experience the vehicle the way you want, you have the option to change the character of the drive through Eco start/stop, Comfort, Sport, and Sport+. You can also create your own mode and set the transmission for manual shifting.
Luxury and Sophistication
Every detail offers unmatched elegance from the sophisticated and sporty design to the luxurious and comfortable interior. A combination of both the latest cutting edge trends in design with the more time tested and classic design elevate the E400 4Matic Coupe to the next level and are consistent with how forward thinking Mercedes-Benz has always been. As is expected with the E Class Coupe, all four seats are individually tailored. The rear cabin is unusually spacious and elevates the vehicle to a true four seater. Every passenger will be content and comfortable.
The technology in the car is advanced keeping with tradition and a 12.3 inch display screen is both startlingly attractive and comfortably situated for the driver. The animations appear life like and sharp. Leather upholstery comes standard and a leather trimmed steering wheel offers a sure grip and attractive centerpiece for the driver’s side. The dash trim is also top-stitched and it’s the subtle details like this one that make the vehicle stand out as a leader in sophistication.
The lighting in the cabin is configurable and the 64-color LED lights can be altered to suit whatever mood you are in. Bask in the soft glow of the lighting that emanates from even the door handles. A keyless start means the beginning of every drive is powered by the latest technology and the brake hold feature that comes standard means when you come to a stop and tap the brake a second time, the feature is enabled and you can relax your foot.
If you want to add even more luxury, you can opt for the multi-contour front seats that also come with massage capabilities. And for healthier breathing, you can select the air balance cabin-air purification system. This option means the air in your cabin will never feel stale, but stay fresh and enhance the quality of the air you’re breathing. You can also add a fragrance system to up your game.
Car-to-X comes standard which means that the E-Class can alert a central notification system when any danger presents itself in the car and alert other drivers before they reach the hazard. Active Brake Assist, Crosswind Assist, rearview camera, PRE-SAFE Sound, 9-way airbag protection, adaptive braking technology, and an advanced tire pressure monitoring system all come standard and mean that you will enjoy tremendous safety even while enjoying a thrilling ride. Other safety options include Active Lane Change Assist, Active Brake Assist with Cross-Traffic Function, and Blind Spot Assist.
When it comes to other vehicles on the market, there is really no comparison. The E400 4Matic Coupe has truly carved out a class of its own. Its style, sophistication, and presence stand out even against what might be perceived as its competition. When you’re looking for a special drive, the E400 4Matic is the vehicle you want.
