The German manufacturer will start rolling out the four Coupes and three Cabriolet E-Class variants, starting at $79,990, which they say will ‘represent excellent value in the luxury car segment.’
“The new E-Class indicates our commitment to safety, technology and equipment without compromise.” Mercedes-Benz spokesman Richard Emery says.
Standard features on all E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet variants include Active Park Assist, 19” wheels, parking sensors, keyless entry and push to start, an LED intelligent light system, and an automatic climate control system. The Cabriolet also comes with an ‘Airscarf’ neck-level heating system.
The top level E 400 Coupe and Cabriolet both come with a Harmon Kardon Logic 7 surround sound system and 360 degree camera.
Mercedes have held true with their commitment to safety, with a host of safety features. Autonomous cruise control with Steering Assist, Active Blind spot assist, collision avoidance system with active pedestrian protection, rear sensors that detect an imminent rear-end collision and Emergency brake assist with Junction assist come standard in all variants.
From $79,990 the entry level E 200 Coupe and Cabriolet carries a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, with outputs of 135kW of power and 300Nm of torque. The two consume 6.0 and 6.5L/100km respectively.
