New styling, tech for Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet
While BMW has revealed the 5-Series and 6-Series GT facelift, Mercedes has unwrapped 2021 E-Class convertible and coupe models. The E450 models feature a new diamond grille, flatter LED headlights with a different interior design, and new LED taillights.
Inside of the E-Class, the visual updates are more notable. Even the coupe in its AMG avatar has quite and angry face. Large displays, a new AMG Performance steering wheel and the revolutionary MBUX infotainment system with AMG-specific functions and displays reinforce the characteristic AMG Performance Luxury ambience. 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. The tail lights are pretty much unchanged and the massive spoiler still dominates the rear end. The cabin is upholstered in Alcantara/Dynamica microfibre, with carbon-fibre and metal inlays to elevate the sportiness.More news: Fortnite Doomsday event DELAY
The new steering also gets rid of optical touch controls that are now capacitive and more responsive.
Then there's the new active safety system (carried over from the saloon and estate) which includes clever adaptive cruise control that can slow the vehicle based on online reports of traffic ahead, as well as for motorway slip roads, roundabouts and toll booths. Add to that you have the traditional 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and there's a 10.25-inch infotainment system that offers support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.More news: Elliott ends Busch's Truck dominance, collects bounty
