First Look: Mercedes-Benz E Class Coupé
Sleek aesthetics with “masculine” appeal, the latest “Dream Car” addition brings a highly-personalised driving experience to the public.
Mercedes-Benz Malaysia unveiled the E-Class Coupé last Thursday, another worthy addition to its lineup of “Dream Cars Collection”, a repertoire of the most exclusive and exciting cars available in the luxury market today.
With more space than its predecessors, two models are available: the E 200 Coupé AMG Line, with 184 hp and 300 Nm of torque, capable of accelerating from 0-100km/h in 7.8 seconds; and the E 300 Coupé, with 245 hp, 370Nm, capable of accelerating from 0-100km/h in 6.4 seconds. An extra third version is the E 300 Coupé Edition 1, — but is limited to only 555 units worldwide — accented by 50.8 cm (20-inch) AMG light-alloy wheels and cashmere white magno paint.
Interior-wise, one can choose high-contrasting, black/classic red or black/white leathers with horizontal seams. Lighting is powered by LED technology, including ambient lighting that features 64 colours. Two high-resolution displays makes up a widescreen “floating” cockpit. Steering wheel controls, centre console touchpad, LINGUATRONIC voice control system improves navigation. Extra spaciousness gives passengers extra comfort, especially on longer journeys.
An exciting add-on to the E-Class is COMAND Online, the infotainment system with full smartphone integration capability. Plugs and cables are eliminated, as compatible mobile phones can be charged wirelessly, and connects to the system via the vehicle’s exterior aerial. Using the Near Field Communication feature, a smartphone can be turned into a digital car key to lock, unlock and start the engine, lest you lose your real keys.
