The Detroit coming-out party for the 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class has expanded to include the two-door models. Benz dropped images and a features rundown on the restyled E-Class Coupe and Cabrio this week, ahead of the 2013 Detroit Auto Show.
Both cars get the new-and-improved face that we’ve already seen on the sedan and wagon, along with an upgraded interior, which includes new color combos along with familiar amenities like the Cabriolet’s Aircap and Airscarf systems.
In terms of nanny tech and driver aids, Collision Prevention Assist and Attention Assist are standard. They’re joined by an updated suite of available features that fall under the so-called “intelligent drive” umbrella. Highlights include a forward-facing Stereo Multi-Purpose Camera; Distronic Plus with Steering Assist; BAS Plus braking assist, now upgraded to detect cross-traffic and pedestrians; Pre-Safe Brake and Pre-Safe Plus rear-collision detection; Active Lane Keeping Assist; Active Parking Assist; and a 360-degree camera setup.
Power comes in two flavors. E350 models get the direct-injected 3.5-liter V6 making 302 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. The E550 variants get Benz’s twin-turbo 4.6-liter V8, good for 402 hp and 443 lb-ft. Oh, and the coupe can be outfitted with 4Matic all-wheel drive.
The 2014 E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet hit showrooms this summer.
