The appearance of the car can not be compared with anything: a formidable look of optics, a massive wide bumper, a huge radiator grille and low thresholds. At first it seems that these cars are produced at one of the tuning studios in small quantities. But no, it is in this shell that the Mercedes Benz E-class coupe is mass-produced, in large batches.

Compared to earlier models, the version that is being produced today has gained a lot of sporty features. And if earlier it was a solid business class car, now it is a real sports car. The lower part of the bumper is decorated with an aerodynamic spoiler, it’s hard not to notice huge air intakes on the sides, and the optics have acquired a more embossed shape and figured compartments for daytime running lights. By the way, due to such an extraordinary arrangement of DRL strips, the engineers managed to preserve the “four-eyed” effect, which was originally present on the machines of this series.


The inside of the car is literally crammed with luxurious details and elements. The interior design is very modern and unusual. Behind the wheel of the Mercedes Benz E-Class you feel like in a real spacecraft. Even the steering wheel has a lot of remote control buttons and an unusual "aluminum look" insert. In more advanced trim levels, there is an original woodgrain insert running in a strip along the entire perimeter of the front panel.

The instrument panel includes 3 wells, and in one of them there are two arrows with their own scales at once. In the center you can see the built-in on-board computer with touch screen control. The center console is made symmetrically and without any bells and whistles (with the exception of a dozen buttons under the air duct). There is also an armrest here. The door upholstery is made in white and gray tones and is in harmony with the general background of the interior. There are also many additional buttons here.controls, and the handles are chrome-plated. Seat upholstery can be either dark gray or white. But in any case, the driver's and passenger seats will be made with maximum ergonomics. By the way, the seats are equipped with a mass of various adjustments, which allows a person to set the position of the backrest to suit their anatomical features.

Based on all of the above, we can say that the Mercedes Benz E-Class is one of the few examples of how you can successfully combine prestige, solidity and sportiness into one. The Germans coped with this task, for which they have great respect.
