For more than two decades these vehicles have been among the most appreciated in the world, and owning one of these vehicles is a thing of prestige. 2018 Mercedes E class Coupe continues a two-decade-long tradition of producing a state of the art vehicles which set the industry standards.

2018 MERCEDES E CLASS COUPE INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR
Mercedes-Benz E class has always been known as elegant, futuristic and each of its models had a unique and yet recognizable visual appeal. Looking at the spy photos, the 2018 Mercedes E class Coupe will have a sporty look which will be attractive to a vast number of potential buyers. The Coupe is a two-door vehicle with a remarkably dynamic design. It is rumored that this vehicle will be based on two different modules, a blend of S and C classes, which will provide much-awaited changes to this E class vehicle.
However, it is too early to talk about the details. The 2018 E-Class coupe will definitely go through a redesign, but Mercedes have made very few information available to the public. With our eyes on the testing mule, we couldn’t really decipher the look of the lines, and what changes have been made to the front end ant the chassis all around.
Nothing but comfort and luxury can ever be expected from a Mercedes vehicle, so it would be out of mind to assume that 2018 Mercedes E class Coupe would be any different. This vehicle will have the capacity to accommodate up to four passengers, and it has cozy leather seats.
As any Mercedes vehicle, safety features on this model are among the best money can buy. Among other features are WiFi, Bluetooth, and an infotainment system which allows the use of iPhone applications, such as SIRI voice control and many others. All indications show that this will be another great car from Mercedes which can be compared to a few other on the market.
ENGINE OF 2018 MERCEDES-BENZ E-CLASS COUPE
The current E class vehicles are utilizing V8 engines, but the rumors say that 2018 Mercedes E class Coupe will also be available with four and six-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines. It is most likely that the base model will come with 4 liter V8 engine with 600 horsepower.
This model should have a nine-speed automatic transmission, but it remains unclear whether or not a model with a manual transmission will be available. We are looking at a fuel efficient engine with great power, which comes as no surprise given the strength of engines on previous E-class models.
2018 MERCEDES E CLASS COUPE RELEASE DATE AND PRICE
The production process of 2018 Mercedes E class Coupe seems to be in its late stage, but this vehicle cannot be expected on the market before the spring of 2017. These are only predictions and the exact release date will be published in the upcoming months. The price of this car is also a subject of speculations.
Based on the price of other Mercedes E class vehicles the price should be between 55.000$ and 70.000$. 2018 Mercedes E class Coupe will be challenged by only several competitors such as BMW, and this fact alone says more than enough what kind of car we can expect.
