Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupé (2017) | Expert Rating


The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupé is the two-door version of the E-Class executive saloon. The current model was launched in early 2017, with a facelifted model arriving in the UK in the second half of 2020. An E-Class Cabriolet is also available, which has its own page.

Available with either a petrol or diesel engine, the E-Class Coupé has been 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 adds that the coupé “offers a surprising amount of practicality”, while Top Gear describes the car’s engine options as “reasonably cost-effective”.

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

As of July 2022, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupé holds an Expert Rating of 74%, based on 12 reviews published by UK media sources.

Safety rating

As of July 2022, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupé has not been crash tested by Euro NCAP. If and when it is put through its paces by Euro NCAP, we will publish the results here.

The E-Class Coupé may be based on the saloon of the same name but there are significant structural differences between the two models. As such, the coupé does not inherit the saloon’s safety rating.

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