The redesigned 2014 E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet
More eye-catching. And even more soul-stirring.
Aggressive exterior styling, a reimagined interior and a suite of pioneering safety features help the two-door side of the E-Class family flex its already formidable muscles.
With its long history as the standard-bearer for innovative luxury, any new iteration of the E-Class has some big shoes to fill: its own. But with sharper lines, a new cabin and technology that redefines what automobiles are capable of, the redesigned 2014 E-Class fills those shoes, and then some. In the case of the E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet, the result is a head-turning pair of road-loving siblings that make each moment behind the wheel more rewarding than ever before.
Balancing a windswept profile with a wide, muscular stance, the redesigned 2014 E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet announce their presence with a freshly honed front-end featuring an new, single-rib front grille with central Three-Pointed Star. On either side, sleek new single-unit headlamps shine bright with LED technology in the main beams, as well as in the integrated Daytime Running Lights. Below, enlarged air intakes on the commanding front apron add an extra dose of aesthetic aggression. At the rear, newly chiseled rear fenders lead into sharper wraparound LED taillamps, with a wholly re-sculpted rear bumper completing the seductive package.
In turn, the already exquisite four-passenger E-Class cabin has been reimagined to provide an even more appealing combination of sophisticated form and cutting-edge function. A new three-tube instrument cluster and finely crafted analog clock adorn the richly grained dashboard. The gearshift moves to the steering column, making for extra storage the redesigned center console -- which now flows virtually uninterrupted from the dashboard to the rear between the signature sport seats with integrated head restraints.
Continuing to provide the spark for the E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet are advanced Direct Injection V-6 and twin-turbo V-8 engines that pack a powerful punch more cleanly, efficiently and quickly. Refined and channeled and through the silky Mercedes-Benz 7-speed automatic transmission, their muscle works in concert with sophisticated AGILITY CONTROL and sport-tuned Dynamic Handling suspensions to respond instantly to a driver's wishes -- while also adjusting to the demands of the asphalt beneath. Available 4MATIC all-wheel drive in the redesigned 2014 E350 Coupe adds even more confidence and control, no matter what conditions await.
For all their enthusiasm for the open road, no coupe or cabriolet bearing the Three-Pointed Star is complete without an uncompromising approach to safety. Standard equipment on the redesigned 2014 E-Class are the next generation of our ATTENTION ASSIST driver-drowsiness monitor and our new PRE-SAFE® PLUS technology that adds rear-collision preparation to our landmark anticipatory occupant protection system. Accompanying Active Blind Spot Assist and Active Lane Keeping Assist in the available Driver Assistance Package is DISTRONIC PLUS with Steering Assist -- an enhanced version of our radar-guided cruise control technology that can not only help you maintain a safe distance from other vehicles across a full 360° range, but also employ targeted braking to help you avoid a potential collision. Additional new safety technology includes an enhanced combination of BAS PLUS® and PRE-SAFE® Brake, now with Cross-Traffic Assist and Pedestrian Detection features to help avoid or lessen the impact of collisions at intersections with vehicles and people crossing the street, respectively.
In short, the redesigned 2014 E-Class Coupes and Cabriolets offer more than the alluring style of chiseled new exterior styling and a reimagined cabin. They provide true substance in the form of class-leading innovation that sets new standards in automotive safety. But just as important, this sporty side of the E-Class family continues to deliver the kind of performance that makes every mile one to remember.
