Default First Look: 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe



Quote:
* Competes with: BMW 6 Series, Audi S5
* Looks like: Mercedes is expanding its lineup at BMW pace
* Drivetrain: 268-hp V-6 or 382-hp V-8
* Hits dealerships: June 2009

The next-generation E-Class sedan was revealed on the eve of the 2009 Detroit auto show, and now, a few weeks before the Geneva Motor Show, the company has revealed plans for its first-ever E-Class coupe, which will go on sale stateside in June.

The new model will slot below the $107,900 CL coupe and above the $48,100 CLK coupe, which might not be built much longer now that the E-Class two-door is on the scene.

While Mercedes announced a number of trim levels for the European market, the U.S. will get the same two power plants found in the current E-Class sedan. The E350 will feature a 262-hp V-6 engine, and the more powerful E550 will feature a 382-hp V-8. The new, more powerful, more efficient direct-injection gasoline engines that will be offered in Europe will likely take another year or two to make it to the U.S.

Features will most likely mirror the new E-Class sedan, which you can read about here. We’ll have more information on pricing closer to the on-sale date. For now, check out the photos below.

This looks much better than the E-Class sedan. Also, the new E-class isn't even being shown at the Chicago auto show even though it was released at Detroit. Hell, at Detroit they had a press conference off-site the night before the first press day and didn't even bring the car to the show floor.

Fuckers.
