Excited British customers waiting for the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe don’t have to wait anymore. The new Mercedes E Class Coupe is now available to order at Mercedes dealerships in the United Kingdom with a starting price of £40,135 on the road (OTR).
However, Mercedes’ E Class Coupe lineup in the UK doesn’t include the E 200 that is powered by a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine that could generate up to 184 hp (135 kW) of output and up to 221 lb-ft (300 Nm) of torque. The base model for the UK market is the diesel-powered Mercedes-Benz E 220d Coupe.
This model is powered by a 2.0-liter diesel engine that could provide 194 hp (143 kW) of max output and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of peak torque, allowing the Mercedes E 220d to sprint from zero to 62 mph in 7.4 seconds. Despite such power, this diesel-powered E 220d emits only 119 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer and could travel up to 61.4 miles on a gallon of diesel fuel. This is the model that features a base price of £40,135 OTR.
Of course, this diesel engine is not the only source of power for the 2018 Mercedes E Class Coupe. Two petrol models are also available: the E 300 and the more powerful E 400 4MATIC. The base petrol model is the Mercedes E 300 coupe, which is powered by the same engine as the E 200 but with more power. This engine could generate 245 hp (180 kW) of max output and 273 lb-ft (370 Nm) of peak torque, allowing the E 300 to accelerate from nil to 62 mph in 6.4 seconds, while having a fuel economy rating of 40.4 mpg and carbon dioxide emissions level of 160 g/km. The E 300 is available from a starting price of £41,025 OTR.
Meanwhile, the core of the top-of-the-range E400 4MATIC is a powerful bi-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine hat is essentially a detuned version of the powerplant found in the AMG 43 units. This V6 engine could develop up to 333 hp (245 kW) of output and up to 354 lb-ft (480 Nm) of torque, enabling the E400 4MATIC to dash from standstill to 62 mph in 5.3 seconds. It returns 33.6 miles per gallon and emits 189 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer. The E 400 4MATIC has a starting price of £50,775 OTR.
