Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe E250 Review
Par excellence

Introduction, Exterior

Like the E200 sedan we tested last year, both the E250 Cabriolet and Coupe models have received the same nip tuck that has breathed fresh air into the E-class range. While the E-class coupe has always been an elegant machine, it was starting to look dated next to the new A5 and BMW 4-series that were being launched alongside it.

Mercedes-Benz rose to the challenge by way of giving the cars a whole host of new technologies while improving on its current exterior design that has led to one of the sexiest E-class coupes ever.



Mercedes-Benz has chosen to keep the exterior outline of the coupe similar to its pre-facelift version which means the classic coupe design remains. The long bonnet, swooping roofline and short rear deck dictates this to be a sports coupe. An impression that is further underlined by the new head lamps and tail lamps.

While the previous version wasn’t exactly ugly, the new lamps do warp the model a few years into the future making the older model look even more dated than it really is.

The sharp edged front fascia of the previous model has been replaced with a purposeful scowl and while the four headlamp arrangement remains, it has received a smoothed over headlamp contour. Mercedes-Benz had made an effort to go fully LED and is evident in the four LED ‘bulbs’ in the headlamps. The daytime running lamps have also been replaced with two LED strips that separate the individual lamps. The rear lamps also get the LED treatment and makes them even more distinctive at night.
