Performance lovers look at the E 400 AMG Sport Plus with 333hp and 0-62mph in 5.2 seconds. As Mercedes doesn’t a full-fat E 63 AMG in the Coupe range, the hottest model fast car can buy.

Ride and handling

You shouldn’t the same dynamic drive you get in a BMW 4 with a Mercedes E-Class instead, think of this car as a version of the E-Class saloon – but all that car’s excellent quality in tact.

There are chassis options; the first adaptive Agility Control which has Comfort and Sport We preferred Comfort, as the Sport wrecks the ride. The second is Control Sport Suspension, the E 400 has a Dynamic Handling Package, selectable transmission modes.

Dashboard and driving

Like the E-Class saloon, the has a comfortable driving position, plenty of adjustment allowing all and sizes to get comfortable.

However, the design looks dated compared with modern such as the BMW 4 Series. We have with its centre console in as there are too many small, buttons for the stereo and climate Features such as the gear on the steering column and the foot-operated brake might not appeal to either.


Thick roof and curvy front and rear make manoeuvring and parking difficult. Thankfully, Parktronic Active Park Assist, not only picks parking but guides the car in too, is fitted as on all models.

Passenger and practicality

Passenger space


is room for two in the back of the E-Class but legroom is only adequate and the roof eats into the headroom. With its large and easily folded front access to the rear seats is we also like how the rear fold right down.

Boot space

Considering is a coupe, with 450 litres, the has a massive boot. Bigger both the Audi A5 Coupe and BMW 4 it is deep and well-shaped with a low sill. To help practicality a split/fold rear seat is as standard on all E-Class Coupes.

The sharp styling cuts the air well, so there is no wind at speed (and the superb cut fuel consumtopn at speed). even with the smallest alloys, road noise can tiresome on long trips. The engines can be disappointingly noisy,
