The vehicle rides on 18-inch alloy wheels.

Would you opt for the E 53 AMG coupe or convertible over the sedan, and why? With its expressive coupé-esque proportions, clear and sensual design and comfort for four people, the new E-Class Coupé combines the beauty and classic virtues of a grand tourer with state-of-the-art technology. When viewed from the front, its A-shaped design and new, flatter all-LED headlamps create a width-emphasizing, powerful impression. It also has a twin-tip dual exhaust along with other sporty exterior upgrades like the standard 19-inch five-spoke alloy wheels which are upgradeable to the larger 20-inch set. The four-door finally gets the update it deserves (the first since this generation debuted in 2017), thanks to a healthy facelift, more safety equipment, and additional tech.

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet go on sale later this year. Aside from new upholstery, trim, and steering wheel options, the Coupe, Cabriolet and E 53 models come with Mercedes' new MBUX infotainment system as standard. Apart from this, it gets digital 12.3-inch instrumental console and a 10.25-inch multimedia screen for connected features. The console still features the nine-step Traction Control dial to fine-tune the level of fun you want from the rear end of the auto. It is even available with semi-autonomous driving capabilities. Meanwhile, the E 450 with the new turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder now puts out 365 PS and 500 Nm of torque.

The mechanical setup of the 2021 E-Class range incorporates E220d and E400d diesel models and E200, E300, and E450 petrol models.

Notable optional features will include heated armrests and steering wheel, cooled front seats, massaging front seats, augmented reality for the navigation system, and a head-up display. The AMG GT R is also powered by a four-litre Biturbo V8 engine that produces 585hp, sprints from 0-100km/h in 3.6 seconds and has a top speed of 318km/h.

After the sedan and estate versions of the E-Class debuted earlier this year, Mercedes-Benz has now revealed the new E-Class Coupe and E-Class Cabriolet for the global markets.

Exact specification levels and local pricing will be revealed closer to the E-Class' arrival and subsequent launch Down Under in October.
