Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 22 - 60 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

If you’re choosing one of these cars, then chances are Mercedes E-Class Coupe running costs aren’t at the top of your priority list. But should you be trying to inject some style into your life while maintaining a budget, it’s the E220CDI manual that should garner your attention.

Not only is this the cheapest example of the range to buy in the first place, but with an official combined economy of 60.1mpg it will prove the most frugal at the pumps too. Emissions of 123g/km are enviably low too.

You will pay more than just an extra purchase price if you specify the automatic gearbox with this car though, the economy dropping to 58.9mpg and emissions rising to 126g/km.

Of course if these costs don’t concern you, the range-topping E400 is the model to pick. With over 325bhp and 620Nm on tap, performance is scintillating, though in truth the 37.2mpg and 177g/km CO2 figures are equally impressive.

Just as with running costs, Mercedes E-Class Coupe emissions are dictated by engine and gearbox choice so the E220CDI manual comes in with the lowest figures here.

Certainly the 123g/km CO2 figure is impressive, but no matter what model you choose the emissions are worthy of note. All engines emit less than 180g/km, and the diesels – even the 24Xbhp 3.5-litre model – manage to stay under the 150g/km threshold.

Considering the performance on offer, that makes for impressive reading.

Much like the saloon on which it’s based, the Mercedes E-Class Coupe reliability record is set to be high thanks to improved build quality and control measures. This is particularly clear in the cabin, where top quality materials have been used throughout and there’s a thorough level of attention to detail.

After several years of producing models that failed to meet the company’s own exemplary standards (by Mercedes-Benz's own admission), it would appear that the focus is once again on quality. This model completed more than 22 million road test miles before it went on sale.
