The interior layout, fit and finish
Every E-Class Coupé comes with driver and passenger part-electric seat adjustment, as well as electric lumbar adjustment. That means it’s extremely easy to find a comfortable position and the seats provide good lateral support, while there’s enough leg and head room that even the very tall won’t feel hemmed in.
By their very nature, coupés suffer from restricted rear visibility, and the E-Class Coupé is no different. Its sloping rear end may be pleasant to look at, but its relatively small rear screen and thick pillars get in the way. Happily, front and rear parking sensors are standard on every car, while the view forward is very good indeed.
Unfortunately, the visually stunning infotainment system you see in these pictures is only standard on the E400 and E350d models. The E220d and E300 versions come with an 8.4in colour screen instead, although at least sat-nav, Bluetooth, DAB radio and two USB sockets come as standard. With a rotary controller, the system is pretty simple to navigate too.
Upgrading to the 12.3in screen with the Comand Online infotainment system pictured is a considerable cost for E220d and E300 models, but it does bring more advanced sat-nav, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring, as well as an onboard wi-fi hotspot.
Whichever system you go for, the E-Class Coupé seriously impresses with its interior quality. Everything you see and interact with feels suitably plush – in fact, the inside doesn’t feel much of a step down from Mercedes’ S-Class.
