Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe is actually a C-Class Coupe

While everything about the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe screams “I belong to the E-Class lineup,” the successor to the CLK is actually based on the new C-Class platform.

According to CEO of Mercedes-Benz USA Ernst Lieb, putting the 2010 E-Class Coupe on the C-Class platform gives the car better performance characteristics. 

“You can expect a stiffer car with a bit more performance,” Lieb told Automotive News. “Customers want that.”

The 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe will go on sale this summer in the U.S. and will be available with two variants including the 292-hp E350 Coupe and the 388-hp E550 Coupe. Prices start at $48,925 for the 2010 E350 Coupe and $55,525 for the 2010 E550 Coupe.
