2018 Mercedes-Benz E400
We consider the Mercedes-Benz E-class sedan one of the finest luxury 4-doors money can buy. But, the chassis takes on an even sportier form for 2018 as the new E400 Coupe.
With a heritage going back almost 50-years to the 1968 "Stroke Eight" Coupe, this new mid-size two-door resides on Benz’s new, 5-generation E-Class architecture; one we have endlessly raved about for the sedan. Likewise, that now means a coupe that is longer and wider with a heftier feel.
The E400’s 3-liter bi-turbo V6 pumps out 329 horsepower. Of course rear drive is standard, but we chose a 4MATIC All-Wheel Drive model for our first cruise through Canada’s British Columbia.
GREG CARLOSS: “It is pretty good on power. it’s not exactly a brute force monster. If you need to pass there is more than enough to do so. It goes through a 9-speed automatic transmission which I find reacts really well in a lot of situations”
Inside, the coupe shares the clean design and exquisite materials of its sedan sibling. One notable difference: air vents inspired by turbine blades. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E400 is at dealers now starting at about $59,000.
