2. Mercedes-Benz E 220 d Coupe

The E 220 d is the most fuel-efficient variant of the E-Class Coupe range. It has an efficiency class of “A+” thanks to its combined NEDC fuel consumption of 4.0 l/100km, and it has combined CO2 emissions of 106 g/km. The auto carries the diesel-fed 2.5-liter inline-four engine of the three-pointed star brand with 194 hp and 400 Nm of torque. The car can accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 7.4 seconds, and it has a top speed of 242 km/h.

Lastly, expect details of the Mercedes-AMG versions of the E-Class Coupe to come out next year.
