2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe teased

Benz has released a tantalising early peek at its very posh E-Class two-door ahead of its official unveiling.

Mercedes-Benz is taking the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe in an even more premium direction than before, with an early teaser video for the German marque’s latest two-door showing off a design that emulates the megabuck Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe.

Expected to arrive in the latter half of 2017, the E-Class Coupe will be based on the same platform as its sedan sibling – meaning the full range of engines, right up to the heavy-hitting 450kW twin-turbo V8 of the Mercedes-AMG E63 S sedan – will be available.

The soon-to-be-superseded E-Class Coupe was not available in full-blood AMG form thanks to its W204 C-Class-derived underpinnings, which couldn’t accommodate the Mercedes-AMG E63’s beastly powerplant. The arrival of its replacement, which sits on Benz’s latest modular MRA platform, will remedy that.

Glimpses of the interior confirm that the E-Class flavour will be much stronger in this generation E-Class Coupe, with the dash and steering wheel design appearing almost identical to that of the sedan – which carries more than a passing resemblance to the S-Class coupe thanks to its quartet of centre air vents and twin-screen all-electronic instrument panel that stretches across two thirds of the dashboard’s width.

On the outside, the new E-Class Coupe’s headlamp treatment looks like an ever-so-slightly shrunken S-Class Coupes, while at the rear a set of slim LED tail lamps also mimic those of its bigger bro – albeit without the S-Class’ rump-spanning chrome bar to link them together.

The pillarless glasshouse can also be spied in the teaser vid, and with minimal metal in the A and C (or is that B?) pillars the 2017 E-Class Coupe’s profile will be an elegant one.

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe will make its official debut on December 14. Expect more details after the covers are officially whipped off.
