New 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe Revealed ahead of Geneva Debut

17 02 2009

The all-new 2010 Mercedes Benz E-Class Coupe officially revealed ahead of the 2009 Geneva Motor Show. The Coupe’s styling is based on the new 2010 E-Class Sedan, unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show last month, and it shares most of its engines and its interior with the four-door as well.

With the new design, Mercedes claims that the E-Class Coupe will be the “world’s most aerodynamically efficient series-production car.” That’s a bold claim to make but one can see in the newly acquired sleekness of the body that things have changed.

New 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe Leaked: First Official Photos

First official images of the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe have been non-officially leaked on the web.

Lots of straight sharp exterior lines and concave/ convex bodywork will establish it as something of a fresh take on the coupe for Mercedes. The front is dominated by a twin-blade chromed grille with a huge Mercedes-Benz three-point star plastered over it. The lower grille features a sporty mesh design flanked by two LED slits on both sides. Overall it gives the impression of either an AMG model or AMG kit. We are inclined to choose the latter because of the two tailpipes instead of four as found in the current CLK 63 AMG. This car even features an integrated rear diffuser and what appears to be rear LED lights.

Mercedes-Benz will present new ConceptFASCINATION at the Paris Motor Show next month, it previews the outline for the next generation E-Class, the first model variant of which will be launched in 2010.

The German automaker is looking to stretch the body reach of it’s mid-mass luxury car by re branding the next generation CLK as an E-Class auto, it will touch the sedan and estate classical variants already offered. It is an attempt by Mercedes to gain the E genre to the legendary eminence once achieved by the W124 E-Class, however the new E-Class Coupe will still display the underpinnings of the tide generation C-Class.
