New Mercedes-Benz E350 Coupe and Cabriolet pricing announced

Mild-hybrid powertrains have been added to the E-class Coupe and Cabriolet with prices starting from £44,750 and £49,246 respectively

Mercedes has expanded the range of powertrains available in its E-class Coupe and Cabriolet models, adding the E350 engine to sit just below its range-topping E400 which features a 328bhp 3-litre twin-turbocharged V6.

The new E350 features a smaller 2-litre petrol engine which includes EQ Boost, a mild-hybrid system providing the model with a total output of 299bhp and 295lb ft of torque. EQ Boost uses a 48-volt onboard system with a belt-driven starter/alternator, not only aiding efficiency, but also adding around 14bhp to the car’s power output.

Performance isn’t quite as punchy as the more powerful E400, but the 0-62mph sprint is achieved in 5.9sec for the Coupe and 6.1sec for Cabriolet, with both models capable of an electronically limited top speed of 155mph. The 40mpg quoted for both models isn’t too bad either, likely thanks to the use of Mercedes’ new nine-speed automatic gearbox, ideal for fuel economy and effortless cruising.

Sitting just under the range-topping model comes with its perks, as the E350 comes with a high specification as standard. This includes blind spot assist, a 12.3-inch widescreen cockpit display as found in the S-class,illuminated door sills, 19-inch wheels, ambient lighting and much more. Should this not be sufficient, though, the marque also offers a multitude of options packages. At £2395, the Premium package gets you wireless charging, a 360-degree camera system and Multibeam LED lights. The £3450 (£4395 for the Coupe) Premium Plus package adds even more, with a Burmester surround sound system, automatic powered boot closing and panoramic sunroof for the Coupe. 20-inch wheels and a slew of gloss-black extras can also be optioned through the reasonably-priced £656 Night package.

If you’re keen on driver assistance features, the E-class Coupe is the car for you. The £595 Lane Tracking package provides you with Active Lane Keeping Assist and for a further £1100, the more comprehensive Driving Assistance package adds Active Brake Assist, Active Distance Assist, Evasive Steering Assist and more to keep you out of harm’s way.

Order books for the E350 Coupe and Cabriolet are now open, with the first cars hitting roads in spring 2019.
