Mercedes-Benz E-class coupe gets sleeker for 2018

Them head lights look kinda weird too me wonder if all the Mercedes will get them down the road.







DETROIT -- The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-class coupe features sleeker styling than its predecessor, new taillights and an option for a four-cylinder diesel engine that can deliver up to 194 hp.

The coupe, revealed Monday at the Detroit auto show, brings the “next step in the evolution of the Mercedes-Benz design language,” the luxury brand said.

Daimler AG CEO Dieter Zetsche said the new E-class coupe is part of a larger strategy by Mercedes to maintain its premium sales lead in 2017.

"This E-class coupe is just one of several reasons why we are looking ahead with confidence,” Zetsche said. "We expect improvement in the global economy and also slight growth in the world’s car market. At Mercedes, we again aim to outperform the premium car segment and strive for another best-ever sales year in 2017 as we roll out more attractive new products this year."

Mercedes won the U.S. luxury sales crown in 2016, with sales of 340,237 vehicles -- good for a 16.8 percent U.S. luxury market share.

The coupe, 4.8 inches longer and 2.9 inches wider than the 2017 model, features long, flat LED taillights that illuminate from the center outward when opening and the opposite direction when the vehicle is locked.

Four engine options -- including a diesel -- will be available at the car’s launch in the summer, Mercedes said. The E220 coupe comes with a four-cylinder engine that can reach a top speed of 150 mph. The E200 and E300 models are set to come with four-cylinder gasoline engines, while the E400 will feature a V-6 engine that can achieve 333 hp and an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.

Mercedes said Remote Parking Pilot, which allows the car to move into and out of parking spaces or garages remotely via a smartphone app, is available on the E-class coupe.

Mercedes did not reveal pricing for the coupe.

Agree 100%. Current headlight design is elegant. Those...something else.

The rest of the car is edging closer to the Design Concept Coupe of a few years back. Waiting to see the rear view mirror housings change since they're overdue and the skinny, curvy, pointed ones keep turning up on MB concept models.
