Introducing a new facelift for the Mercedes E-class Coupe and Cabrio
If you are thinking of putting down a down payment for a new Mercedes E-class coupe, hold your horses. A new facelifted version of the E-class coupe and also the cabriolet variant has just been announced and while many customers might not want to pay the full retail price – at MSG we can help you find the ideal vehicle pre registered. Often Car Finance Bad Credit customers are surprised in that we can offer funding on new and used motors which means savings are to be had even with sub prime finance.
Just like the newly facelifted E-class saloon and estate models (whose footsteps the coupe and the cabriolet are closely following behind), they will no longer have the quad headlamp design. Out with the old, in with the new, the facelifted models now come with bigger headlamps. Something like the old quad headlamps but now conjoined. The grille is also bigger now, with the iconic (but somewhat obnoxious) Mercedes logo in front like a propelling nozzle, only pointed forward.
The engines of the coupe and cabriolet models are similar to that of the saloon and estate with a petrol engine and two diesel engines joining the lineup. Everything else is similar, however some upgrades are done which are claimed to help reduce emissions and increase fuel economy.
The entry-level E200 model is equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine outputting 181bhp. In the E250, however, the same engine makes 208bhp. The E220 CDI is powered by a 2.1-liter diesel outputting 168bhp. The E250 CDI with the similar 2.1-liter diesel outputs 201bhp.
The range topping E350 3.0-liter V6 diesel outputs 248bhp. In an effort to lower emissions and also to ensure that the engines meet the stringent EU6 emission standards, it receives urea injection. Sadly however, probably due to emissions problems, the V8 twin-turbocharged 4.6-liter engine of the E500 coupe is no longer being offered in the UK lineup.
Like the older models, the facelifted mid-range models are offered with two choices of gearboxes, depending on which it comes with. The gearbox options include a traditional six-speed manual and also a seven-speed automatic with paddle shifters. To keep up with the times, both gearboxes also come standard with stop/start and brake energy recuperation technology.
Although price points for the new E-class coupe and cabriolet have not been determined, the E200 entry-level coupe should cost around £33,000.
