Mercedes-Benz has teased the 2018 E-Class Coupe ahead of its official debut on December 14. Like its predecessor, the new two-door E-Class looks shorter than its sedan counterpart and it appears to have retained the pillarless design that's been a feature of Mercedes-Benz coupes since the CLK-class.
The teaser also shows some key design features such as the rear taillight, which has a similar design as the large S-Class Coupe and the smaller C-Class Coupe. Inside, the car features the same two-screen design as the S-Class, a three-spoke steering wheel, and a silver analog clock. Up front, the new E-Class Coupe hasthe same front fascia has the sedan with headlights featuring two LED strips that split the cluster to give the car its signature four-eyed look.
Although Mercedes-Benz hasn't announced much details about the 2018 E-Class Coupe, we can expect it to feature the same cutting edge technologies as the sedan such as the Drive Pilot semi-autonomous driving aid, a full active safety suite such as adaptive cruise control with start/stop function, and automatic emergency braking. The newest version of Mercedes' COMAND infotainment system should also be available.
Expect the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe to comes with the 241-hp 2.0-liter turbo-four in the base E300 paired to the brand's new nine-speed automatic transmission. A six-cylinder variant should also be part of the lineup but it's unknown whether it will be badged as the E400or as the AMG E43. Regardless of which name the six-cylinder E-Class Coupe will use, expect it to utilize a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6, which is rated between 329 hp to 396 hp and 354 to 384 lb-ft of torque depending on the model.
