    Quickly labeled as the smaller S-Class or, the larger C-Class depending on the beholder's eye, the new E-Class provides further proof that.

    We try V6 E, and its 4-cyl siblings ▻ A convincing 4-seat large luxury coupe. This is the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe, which slots.

    Considering our brief test route on the return to the airport took in mostly smooth autoroutes, this combination will probably feel quite fidgety in the UK. Every E has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, automatic climate control, interior ambient lights, heated front seats and keyless go, among others. Needless to say, access in and out is a piece of cake whether Nigel will or will not open the door for you. Look, we love wagons here.

    Mercedes-Benz E-Class E 4Matic test drive: More is more

    As a genuine four-seater, it finds itself in a bit of white space. Despite its shorter overall length and a shorter wheelbase, the coupe is slightly heavier than the E-class saloon, something Mercedes insiders attribute to extra standard equipment plus stiffening that was applied to both the Coupe and Convertible version, the latter due to arrive in the UK this October. The E-class Coupe is lowered 15mm compared with the saloon, and a choice of three suspension set-ups are available: For now, all versions are fitted with a nine-speed automatic gearbox, but a six-speed manual will also be offered on the E Six-cylinder variants come as standard with 4Matic all-wheel drive, which will be offered optionally on four-cylinder models.

    It makes the E-class Coupe appear like a four-door with hidden rear door handles or, indeed, the CLS saloon. Get the rear tints to disguise it, part of the optional Night package. The widescreen dual screens remain optional twin Equipped with air suspension and riding on inch rubber, our car had a gently absorbent lull to its ride in Comfort mode. Small ripples were perhaps a little more noticeable than expected, which may be more pronounced in the UK, but on Spanish test routes it felt a bit Princess And The Pea to complain.

    Despite its suppleness, body motions were well suppressed. Bravely — or confidently — Mercedes packed us off on a test route with a constant stream of off-camber left and rights that flicked across coastal hillsides.

    In fact, the E Coupe contains its mass well, and is fun to punt along the twisting roads. Our only qualms were that wind noise was higher than expected in our test car, and the generally silky transmission could occasionally thunk. Yes, we also drove both the Ed and E Instinctively, six-cylinder propulsion feels right in this segment, and both these four cylinder models were disappointing.

    There was also a little lull between making a steering input and the weight settling over the wheels. It felt a little uncertain. The E has a deep idle note and certainly sounds better than the diesel, but its composure falters beyond rpm. The note sounds synthetic and a little gruff, not dissimilar to the widely criticised Porsche Cayman and Boxster.

    Tested on inch alloys with adaptive dampers, the ride felt noticeably harder-edged than the air suspension car, even in Comfort mode. Considering our brief test route on the return to the airport took in mostly smooth autoroutes, this combination will probably feel quite fidgety in the UK. Ah yes, you, Mercedes has that covered. But come on, how hard is it? The Mercedes E 4Matic is a very satisfying luxury coupe.

    Not only is it plush and comfortable and generally refined for four large adults wind noise in our early car notwithstanding… and not unbearable , it also looks and feels special inside and out, offers cutting-edge tech mostly at a cost… and even delivers a surprising level of dynamism for a car most owners would excuse if it were a wallowy wafter.
