Overall verdict

The Top Gear car review:Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe

Overall verdict
There have been elegant two-door Mercs since before the dawn of time. And now there's one more.


Good range of engines, well-made, spacious interior


220 and 250 CDI engine isn't as refined as it should be


What is it?

This is a lovely, sothing, deliberately unsensational sort of car, sporting a mix of (old) C and (old) E-Class architecture underneath. Mercs are slow burners at the best of times - unless there’s an AMG badge around - but this is a seriously smooth operator (at least until it’s replaced, which won’t be long now…).
