The Mercedes E Class Coupé, with 333 hp and Drive Pilot
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe 2017 is the next step of the E – Class Mercedes, after the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain. Athletic and clean lines for a coupe inherits the technology base of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and completes its range.
Looking back at its ancestors, the new E-Class Coupe finds its origins in 1968. Almost half a century ago, it was the Mercedes-Benz W114, known as Strich Acht , who began a saga that would find its continuity in the CLK. And about to start the year 2017, this new member of the Mercedes-Benz Coupé heritage is presented.
As a good coupé, it has muscular lines, and in it they emphasize details like the recessed location of the grill in the fontal, the windows without frame and the absence of a pillar B. In the optics we find LED technology, that in combination with the system LED MULTIBEAM, consisting of matrices of 84 lights in each optical group, has a welcome function in the rear lights: when the vehicle is opened, the headlights are illuminated from the inside to the outside, while the doors are closed by reversing this luminous sweep.
In addition, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupé inherits from the E-Class the optional MAGIC VISION CONTROL system, which uses the wiper arm as a channel for the windshield washer fluid, so that there is no liquid projection from the hood to the front window, But it is the same windscreen wipers that shoot the liquid on the glass when it is in the maximum position.
Making a much more efficient engine
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe engine debuts. This is a tetracyclical diesel block of 1,950 cc, which serves to provide the range of an access version E 220d that is capable of homologating a level of CO2 emissions of only 106 g / km in combined NEDC. This engine is made of aluminum and in its cylinders has NANOSLIDE coating, developed by Mercedes-Benz, to reduce friction in the piston strokes.
As standard, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupé equips DIRECT CONTROL suspension, which is 15 mm lower than the E-Class, while the DYNAMIC BODY CONTROL system is optional. With DYNAMIC SELECT, you can control the levels of the AIR BODY CONTROL pneumatic suspension according to four programs (Comfort, Eco, Sport, Sport +) in addition to the Individual program, and the DYNAMIC SELECT also modifies the response to the accelerator, Start- Stop, the map of the gearbox, and so on.
An interior that can be sporty, fresh or refined
Inside, we find the dual screen composed of two 12.3-inch elements at high resolution, which is optional and common to the Mercedes E-Class. The instrument panel has three possible styles: Classic, Sport and Progressive, depending on the information you want to have at hand the driver at all times.
In the access versions, the two instrument panel clocks are combined with a 17.8-inch screen, 1000 x 600 pixels resolution, with a 21.3 cm diagonal center display with a resolution of 960 x 540 Pixels. While the clocks are framed in piano black, the aerators are coated silver.
As for shades, the combination of blue yacht and beige macchiato is contemplated, for those who want a fresher touch, while open-pored and high-gloss woods have been chosen for the most refined finishes.
In the AMG Line versions, the upholstery dresses red and black classics, or black and white, to emphasize its sporty character, which can be intuited from the outside, with bumpers, heels and specific tires. It also has a chrome grille and perforated brake discs.
As for connectivity functions, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupé 2017 features features we already knew in the range, such as the key on the smartphone through Near Field Communication, Apple Car, Android Auto, Internet and Bluetooth from the levels of Access, Live Traffic Information, Mercedes me connect with concierge service … and also the Mercedes-Benz DRIVE PILOT, suitable for speeds up to 210 km / h, in addition to the remote parking function, or Remote Parking Pilot.
