Mercedes E-Class Coupe Actually a C-Class


The all-new E-Class Coupe from Mercedes would more accurately be called a C-Class Coupe. We're not saying that to knock the car either. It's just that, technically speaking, it’s a C-Class underneath.

That's right, the chassis of the new E-Class Coupe is based on the C-Class sedan's architecture. The vehicle is even built in the same facility as it's lower-level sibling in Bremen, Germany. The E-Class sedan is built elsewhere in Sindelfingen.

By using the smaller car's chassis, Mercedes was able to drop 400 lbs of weight as compared to the sedan. The weight-saving measure is also a cost-cutting measure - which Mercedes is passing on to the consumer. The entry-level E350 E-Class Coupe costs $50 less than the outgoing CLK350.

i dnt care what it is, this car looks amazingly good, i just wish it had the flip back rear headrest.

I don't think it would be a good idea for me to create a signature. It would probably just be some shameless plug about me being a Realtor.

Hey ath20wj, What is Susie doing later? That C-Class looks okay but I actually like the older ones better. Plus, mine's paid for.

Actually it looks nice but I guess this issue should be fixed when releasing the next generation in the future.

Thanks,

The W209 and W208 were also C class based, no? So this isn't really a new surprise. I dont know about the older 320CE's (300 class or 190 class?) but the CLK's were always C class coupe's in the style of E's.
