Mercedes-Benz has revealed the updated E-Class in Coupe and Cabriolet body styles ahead of an Australian arrival later this year.
The exterior gets all-LED headlamps with flatter housings, while the signature of the LED tail-lights has been reworked. There’s also a tweaked front bumper and grille.
Inside, buyers get an adaptive driver’s seat that adjusts the driving position to correspond with your height, a new steering wheel, as well as a host of new upholstery and trim choices.
Also standard is the MBUX infotainment system with linguatronic voice control and augmented reality satellite navigation, interior assistant, energizing comfort control and energizing seat kinetics.
Like the sedan variants, safety gets a boost courtesy of active distance assist distronic with route-based speed adjustment, active stop-and-go assist, active steering assist, active brake assist, as well as a parking package which works with the 360-degree camera.
Mercedes-Benz will offer the E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet with both petrol and diesel engines some of which are augmented by the brand’s EQ Boost 48V electrical system with an integrated starter-alternator.
Depending on the model, the EQ Boost technology can unlock an additional 15kW/180Nm or 16kW/250Nm during acceleration. It also has a recuperation function and the ability to coast with the engine switched off.
The Mercedes-AMG E53 4Matic+ performance versions were also unveiled and differentiated by a restyled front end with an AMG-specific radiator grille, flat LED headlamps, a new front apron and all-LED tail-lights.
On the inside, E53 variants get the MBUX infotainment system with AMG-specific functions and displays for the instrument cluster and central touchscreen and the new AMG steering wheel.
Power comes from a 3.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine producing 320kW and 520Nm with the 16kW/250Nm EQ Boost tech.
A nine-speed automatic sends power to the fully variable AMG Performance 4Matic+ all-wheel drive system.
Mercedes-AMG claims the Coupe can sprint from 0-100km/h in 4.4 seconds while the Cabriolet takes 4.6 seconds. Both body styles have a top speed of 250km/h.
Full specifications and pricing will be announced closer to the launch date later in 2020.
