2015 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe Preview

Pros: Looking for class and sophistication in a sportier package? Then the Merc E-Class coupe is the car for you. 

Cons: Because apparently there has to be something wrong with it… there’s no diesel engine offered in North America, and there’s also no AMG coupe model.

And in the E 550 sits a fabulous 32V Bi-turbo V8 that will turn out 402 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque. 

Across the board, a 7G-TRONIC PLUS 7-speed automatic transmission is found. Only the E 400 boasts Merc’s all-wheel drive 4MATIC system, while the E 550 featueres rear-wheel drive for an even sportier feel behind the wheel.
