Mercedes Updates E-Class Coupe & Cabrio


Facelifted versions of the E-Class coupe and convertible revealed ahead of their debut at the Detroit Auto Show.

Mercedes-Benz recently revealed a facelift for the E-Class sedan and wagon, but that's only half the story. One the CLK was discontinued, Mercedes integrated new two-doors into the C- and E-Classes, and has just released the updated version of the latter. The existing E-Class coupe and convertible were both strikingly shaped models, but the newly updated versions take the design a step further, integrating the revisions applied to the four-door models into their svelte shapes.

That translates to new headlights that ditch the quadruple individual elements in favor of two integrated lenses flanking a reshaped grille and topping a more aggressive lower fascia. The rear end has similarly been revised, while the interior has been refreshed as well with a new steering wheel, a column-mounted shift lever in place of the central console shifter. The new coupe and convertible E-Class models also adopt the latest safety and convenience technologies Mercedes has to offer, including the stereo digital eye, collision prevention and active parking assist systems.
