Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupé (2017 to 2023)

Not a current model

    Summary


    The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupé is the two-door version of the E-Class executive saloon. This model was launched in early 2017 and facelifted in the second half of 2020. It was discontinued in late 2023, replaced by an all-new model called the CLE.

    An E-Class Cabriolet was also produced, which has its own page.

    Available with either a petrol or diesel engine, the E-Class Coupé was well-received by the British motoring media, praised by Parkers for its “sumptuous yet modern interior”, and commended by What Car? for its “supremely quiet and comfortable” driving experience.

    Heycar added that the coupé “offers a surprising amount of practicality”, while Top Gear described the car’s engine options as “reasonably cost-effective”.

    However, the E-Class Coupé was not as highly-regarded as its saloon sibling in the eyes of reviewers, as it was not as focused on driving enjoyment as some of its rivals. Even so, Carbuyer argued that the E-Class Coupé had the “classy, visual prestige” to attract customers away from rivals like the Audi A5 and BMW 4 Series Coupé.

    As of Deember 2023, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupé holds a Used Car Expert Rating of 74%, based on 13 reviews published by UK media sources.

    Safety rating


    Independent crash test and safety ratings from Euro NCAP

    Notes on safety rating

    The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupé has not been crash tested by Euro NCAP during its production life.

    Although the E-Class Coupé was based on the saloon of the same name, there were significant structural differences between the two models. As such, the coupé did not inherit the saloon’s safety rating.

    The Coupé was well equipped with standard safety technology shared with the E-Class saloon, such as autonomous emergency braking and emergency steering assistance.

    Eco rating


    Independent economy and emissions ratings from Green NCAP

    No eco rating
