2010 Mercedes-Benz E350 Coupe Review

There's only one thing the Mercedes E350 is missing – about 100-hp. We hate to start off on a bad note with this car, but the base 3.5-liter V6 makes just 268-hp and an equally mediocre 258 ft-lbs of torque. It's not a bad amount of output, but hardly what you might expect from a Mercedes and definitely less than you should get for your $48,925.

Now anyone from Mercedes would tell you the E-Class Coupe isn't about raw horsepower or 0-60 mph times – the E350 Coupe taking around 6.5 seconds to get up to speed. And to a certain extend, they'd be right. Which is convenient, if you happen to be selling a car like this.

The decision to drop the immensely successful CLK from the Mercedes lineup seemed like foolishness, until the E-Class Coupe was announced. Set to take the CLK's place in Merc's lineup, this new car is still very much its successor, even riding on the C-Class's smaller and lighter platform.

The E-Class name, however, is important to Mercedes, as it allows them to do so much more with the car – for the company and for the consumer. With the sport coupe market growing in horsepower and size, many of those vehicles (BMW 3 Series, we're looking at you) have started to encroach on the old CLK's territory. So along comes the E-Class Coupe, to straddle the line between the sport coupe and full-sized luxury coupe territory. But make no mistake, in true Mercedes tradition; the E Coupe is luxury first.

Such an exellent Benz! My Dad and I test drove one a while back and it was sooo smooth. Great power from the V6 too. I would love to try the V8. That would be fun! Again, great car! Mercedes-Benz hit this one out of the park!
