Mercedes E-Class Coupe: what will it cost me to run?

In four-cylinder guise, the E-Class Coupe should prove very affordable to run, with the E 220 d achieving the best figures with as much as 61.4mpg claimed, while emitting a highly tax-friendly 119g/km CO2 official figure, which will appeal to private and business users alike.

Choose this engine with 4Matic all-wheel drive and it’ll return up to 53.3mpg, according to Merc.

Go for the four-cylinder petrol E 300 and you’ll see claimed economy figures of 40.4mpg, which isn’t bad when you consider its 0-62mph time of 6.4 seconds.

Even the 3.0-litre V6 E 400 4Matic is quoted at 33.6mpg with 189g/km, which is impressive for a relatively heavy car with such strong performance. You’d do well to achieve this in everyday driving though, especially if you make an attempt to use the performance on tap.

Sitting between the E 220 d and E 300 for claimed fuel economy is the E 350 d. Mercedes-Benz claims it’ll return up to 42.8mpg, which is impressive considering the punch from its silky smooth V6 diesel.

Mercedes-Benz Service Care allows owners to guarantee all parts and labour costs for up to three services, while spreading the cost over monthly payments. If you pay upfront, any remaining services are automatically passed on to the next owner. You’ll need to visit the Mercedes website to get a personalised quote, but it’s a nice way of avoiding nasty surprises.

Insurance costs are likely to be quite high as well, as the E-Class is an expensive and desirable car. Entry-level diesel models are the lowest for insurance, while the V6 diesel and petrol models are the highest.

  • E 220 d is the cleanest option
  • Expect to pay higher tax for petrol engines

Mercedes E-Class Coupe: is it eco-friendly?

Top honours go to the E 220 d for green credentials in the E-Class Coupe. With CO2 emissions of just 119g/km, it falls into a tax band usually occupied by small family hatchbacks.

Whether you go for the standard 19-inch alloy wheels or larger 20-inch items, CO2 emissions are the same. Adding 4Matic all-wheel drive to the E 220 d sees emissions increase to 137g/km, though.

Next up is the E 300 petrol, emitting 160g/km, which is less than the E 350 d 4Matic, which produces 174g/km.

Unsurprisingly it’s the fastest model in the range that produces the most amount of CO2 at 189g/km.

  • Merc has improved quality in recent years
  • Current E-Class proving solid and reliable
  • No recalls for the latest model

Mercedes E-Class Coupe: will it break down on me?

You should be able to rest easy that the E-Class Coupe should prove reliable. Mercedes-Benz has worked to improve its reputation in recent years, and its latest raft of models all feel very solidly built from plush materials and now-proven parts.

The E-Class Saloon with which it shares its underpinnings and parts hasn’t been the subject of any recalls, so that should be enough to keep any concerns at bay.
