Nasser Bin Khaled Automobiles, the authorised general distributor of Mercedes-Benz in Qatar, presented the new E-Class Coupe at the seventh edition of Qatar Motor Show 2017.
With its expressive coupé proportions, clear and sensual design and long-distance comfort for four people, the new E-Class Coupé combines the beauty and classic virtues of a grand tourer with state-of-the-art technology.
The interior of the new E-Class Coupé embodies the synthesis of sporty emotion and luxurious intelligence. The instrument cluster in the driver's direct line of vision shows virtual instruments which can be represented in three different styles: "Classic", "Sport" and "Progressive".
High-grade materials and contemporary colour landscapes come together to create a sporty, contemporary luxury. Especially for the E-Class Coupé, there is a choice of two new, light wood trim packages in open-pore and high-gloss finishes. Precisely executed seams give emphasis to the seat design. The interior lighting makes exclusive use of durable, energy-saving LED technology. The same applies to the optionally available enhanced ambient lighting with 64 colours.
With a length of 4826 mm (+123 mm), a width of 1860 mm (+74 mm) and a height of 1430 mm (+33 mm), the new E-Class Coupé clearly outstrips its predecessor in terms of length, width and height. The principal beneficiary of the wider track, with 1605 mm at the front (+67 mm) and 1609 mm at the rear (+68 mm), is the driving dynamics.
The significantly larger footprint compared with the previous model is to the benefit of passengers with extra spaciousness and comfort. They profit especially in terms of rear knee room, front and rear shoulder room as well as rear headroom. In each of the four fully fledged seats with coupé-specific individual seat character, the driver and passengers enjoy genuine comfort on long journeys as well as the classic virtues of a grand tourer.
Powerful and efficient petrol and diesel engines, all equipped with the ECO start/stop function and complying with the Euro 6 emission standard —among them a new four-cylinder diesel engine — make for lively performance and driving enjoyment.
The dynamic body control suspension with adjustable damping is available as optional equipment. This suspension is likewise lowered. Using a switch in the centre console for the dynamic select system included as standard, the driver can vary the damping characteristics of this suspension. Three modes are available, offering a wide range of adjustment options: "Comfort", "Sport" and "Sport+".
Alternatively, the new E-Class Coupé can be equipped with multi-chamber air suspension, including all-round roll/pitch/heave stabilisation. Advantages of this system: three chambers of different size in the spring struts of the rear axle and two in the spring struts of the front axle make it possible to control the hardness of the suspension in three stages. In this way, the occupants enjoy soft basic suspension, along with the secure feeling of good handling stability at higher speeds.
The multi-chamber air suspension is augmented by a continuous, electronically controlled adaptive damping system. The damping at each individual wheel is adjusted fully automatically to suit the current driving situation and condition of the road – such as in the case of evasive maneuvers or on rough tracks. The system, therefore, delivers good ride comfort along with excellent driving dynamics.
Using the dynamic select switch, the driver can also select different suspension characteristics in combination with the air body control system: "Comfort", ECO, "Sport", "Sport +" and Individual.
Whereas the familiar Live Traffic Information was previously reserved for COMAND Online, the new E-Class Coupé offers this function with Audio 20 USB with the Garmin MAP PILOT System. Live Traffic Information allows the reception of up-to-date and precise traffic information in real time, with significant benefits for dynamic route guidance and precise calculation of estimated arrival time. Other new features in conjunction with COMAND Online include a Free Flow display —green lines clearly show the driver where traffic is currently flowing freely — as well as the display and consideration of traffic information away from the main roads.
As a member of the current E-Class family, the new Coupé is significantly more intelligent than its predecessor. It comes with all the features of the E-Class, the most intelligent executive saloon. Active Brake Assist comes as standard. It is able to warn the driver of an imminent collision, provide optimum support with emergency braking and, if necessary, also autonomously apply the brakes. In addition to slower-moving, stopping or stationary vehicles, it can also detect pedestrians crossing in the danger zone ahead of the vehicle.
Minister of Transport and Communications H E Jassim bin Saif Al Sulaiti and Minister of Municipality and Environment H E Mohamed bin Abdullah Al Rumaihi officially opened the exhibition which witnessed the attendance of a number of heads of missions and other dignitaries.
