Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
There’s very good space around the E-Class Coupé’s front seats, but the real test of a coupé is how much rear space it provides. Naturally, due to its sloping rear end, space is more restricted than in an E-Class saloon, but two average-height adults will be able to fit. They just won’t want to be there for very long. An Audi A7 seats two adults more comfortably, but the E-Class Coupé is about on a par with a BMW 6 Series, and has more space than an Audi A5 or BMW 4 Series.
Boot space looks generous on paper - Mercedes quotes 425-litres. However, in reality (and this is another common trait among coupés) the space is quite flat and has relatively narrow access. However, the rear seats can be split 40:20:40 as standard and folded down to open up the space further, which is a big plus.
