Beautiful, dramatic and eye-catching, that is the E400 Coupe
This is the second time I test drive the E-400 coupe, first in Vancouver, Canada, and now in Florida. Through the mountains outside of Vancouver, or through the coast of Florida, this attractive coupe has perfect performance and driving precision. The new generation E-Class Coupe by Mercedes Benz. For the first time Mercedes Benz built a coupe using the same powertrain of the E-Class. This two-door coupe is filling an empty space between the C-Class and the S-Class.

The 2018 Mercedes Benz E400 4Matic Coupe is a completely new generation of E-Class coupes. It is more spacious, stylish and certainly more beautiful than its predecessor.
Coupes are usually 2-doors smaller «cut» versions of a regular sedan automobile, with limited rear space, but very appealing as per their beautiful design and lines. Coupes are more streamlined and sportier than most four-door sedans. The new E-400 is a new kind of coupe, with larger space in the backseats and trunk but conserving the classic beautiful sporty look and appeal. This E400 Coupe is the perfect middle between the S and C coupes. It is ideal for those drivers who feel that the S-class coupe is too big but the C-class is too small, it is also a good value a compromise in terms pricing, starting around $60K.
This stylish coupe has a new body, bigger and with perfect proportions to satisfy coupe lovers who need more space, especially because of a new roof and a completely new exterior design. More space for all passengers, thanks to the increased dimensions of the body and wheelbase. The design of the E-class coupe comes with certain styling elements of new generations C-class and S-class, using the powertrain of the E400 sedan, and with its own personality, the curve from the roof to the back ends in an infinite-like aerodynamic shape.
Besides luxury and beauty this coupe has a powerful and efficient 3.0L V6 biturbo engine fast and ready for any adventure. For better driving control and shifts, the E400 coupe comes with a 9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic transmission. For those who like power and precision, the 2018 E400 coupe produces 329 Horse Power and a Torque of 354 lb-ft. There are other Mercedes Benz models that produce much more HP, but it will be very rare for a driver to use the full 329 HP that is already more than enough.
