New Mercedes E-Klasse Coupe Gets New Engines

German manufacturer Mercedes released today details of the new E-Klasse coupe, a combination between "the temperament of a sports car and the stylistic allure of a coupé with ambitious ecological aims' as the manufacturer calls it.

The vehicle is part of the company's new strategy (the same strategy we see these days in all major players in the industry) of substituting large-displacement, non-turbocharged engines for turbocharged powerplants with a lower displacement. As a result, the E-Klasse now offers five different engine versions, with four-, six- and eight-cylinder engines with outputs ranging from 204 horsepower to 388 horsepower.

The new four cylinder diesel engine features latest-generation common-rail direct injection, fast piezo injectors, enhanced exhaust gas recirculation, and new twin turbochargers. Fitted on E 250 CDIBlueEFFICIENCY coupe, the 2.2l powerplant develops 204 horsepower with an average fuel consumption of 5.1l/100 km. CO2 emissions range at 135g/km.

The second diesel powered engine, used on the E 350 CDIBlueEFFICIENCY coupe, is a 231 horsepower six cylinder powerplant. The unit uses 6.8l every 100 km and has a CO2 emission rate of 179g/km.

The range of the petrol engines starts with the 1.8l we can enjoy on the E 250 CGIBlueEFFICIENCY coupe. The direct petrol injection unit develops 204 horsepower and uses 7.2l of fuel to travel 100 km, 12 percent less than the previous four-cylinder engine. The CO2 emissions of the new direct-injection model stand at 167g/km.

The E 350 CGIBlueEFFICIENCY coupe is powered by what Mercedes calls "the world's first petrol engine with spray-guided direct injection". The six cylinder develops 292 horsepower and thanks to the tweaks made on the engine uses 8.5l/100 km.

The V8 used on the flagship E 500 coupe, a 388 horsepower monster, uses 10.9l/100 km and, as all the other engines featured on the new E-Klasse, was designed to meet EU5 emissions standard.
