With the updated Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan making its debut around a month ago, it naturally follows that other models in the range would likewise break cover. The latest ones to do so are the 2021 E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet.
The front end flaunts the most obvious change, now sporting the same headlight treatment as their four-door sibling. Apart from this, it’s still the same svelte two-door that comes either with a fixed roof or one that can drop out of sight.
On the inside, the biggest change is the addition of the MBUX interface. This one ditches the rotary controller for a touchpad and even employs Hey Mercedes voice commands. And yes, it supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, viewable through a 12.3-inch display and equally-sized instrument cluster.
Other changes to the updated Coupe and Cabrio are under the hood. The 3.0-liter V6 has been replaced by a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-6 that packs 362 bhp and 369 lb-ft of torque for the E450 model. There is even an AMG E53 offering with 429 bhp and 384 lb-ft of twist. Both engines are paired to a 9-speed auto driving the rear wheels.
Needless to say, safety is standard on these Mercs with such tech as head-up display, advanced driver assistance systems, and active safety gear can be specified while goodies like automatic emergency braking, blind spot assist, and active parking assist are part of the package.
Expect to see the 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet later this year.
