Another visible styling trick is the shape of the faux C-pillar, which has that whiff of 2017 Audi A5 Coupe to it. It’s not bad, but it’s not exactly stately either, at least not when compared to the flowing lines of the S-Class Coupe. Up front, meanwhile, you’ll be hard pressed to differentiate the C213 from the W213. The windscreen appears to be a bit more aggressively raked than the sedan variant. That’s about it for this area, if I’m to be brutally honest.
As far as the interior is concerned, there are no surprises waiting for us in there. Except for a different design for the air vents, everything else is yesterday’s news, including the Burmester-developed 1,450-watt audio system. When it comes down to the oily bits, the E-Class Coupe once again happens to mirror the engines and trannies of its sedan counterpart.
According to a leaked brochure, the Euro-spec model will be available in four flavors at launch: E 220 d, E 200, E300, and E 400 4Matic, with the latter packing a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 that’s capable of hitting 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.3 seconds. Reportedly, the Mercedes-AMG E50 Coupe 4Matic will be launched in the latter half of 2017, packing an turbocharged inline-6 capable of producing more than 408 PS (402 horsepower) and 500 Nm (367 lb-ft) of torque.
