For The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe is stylish and well built. There's a good selection of engines and you get lots of equipment as standard.
Against It’s a bit tight in the back, the interior doesn’t feel classy enough, and some of the engines are very unrefined.

It's expensive but the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe looks and feels the part inside and out, and it comes stacked with kit. It's a shame you have to put up with a stiffer ride on all but the 220 CDI, though.

There are 6 Mercedes-Benz E-Class versions available
Target Price team says:
The Mercedes E-Class Coupe is more than just a two-door version of the saloon; it has a 115mm shorter wheelbase. As such, while the front passengers are treated to plenty of comfort, those in the back will struggle for head- and kneeroom.
There are five engine choices, manual and automatic transmissions and standard or sport suspension set-ups. Two trims levels are also available.
The E220 CDI is now our choice because Mercedes has improved its refinement and it's the only version that can be fitted with the more supple SE suspension.
SE cars get an online sat-nav system as standard, along with a DAB radio and an Active Parking Assist system. AMG Sport trim adds a sportier bodykit, larger alloys, the stiffer sports suspension, leather seats and partial LED headlights.
Its seven engines – four-cylinder and V6 petrols and diesels and a V8 petrol – are all taken from the E-Class, too. The E350 CDI motor is the pick of the range.
