Apr 22, 2009
Cornering lights: this function of the bi-xenon headlamps and the Intelligent Light System provides more safety on junctions and when driving slowly on tight bends.
Optional
ADAPTIVE BRAKE: this Mercedes brake system offers assistance functions, such as a HOLD function and Hill Start Assist, for greater safety and comfort.
Standard
Adaptive front airbags: the front airbags deploy in two stages, depending on accident severity.
Standard
Adaptive Highbeam Assist: this system adjusts the range of the headlamps in accordance with the distance to oncoming vehicles/vehicles travelling ahead.
Optional
Adaptive brake lights: flashing brake lights warn vehicles behind in an emergency braking situation.
Standard
AGILITY CONTROL suspension: the shock absorbers adjust automatically to the current driving situation.
Standard
Active Light System: the Intelligent Light System's bi-xenon headlamps follow the driver's steering movements.
Optional
Active Bonnet: in the event of an accident, the rear of the bonnet is raised by 50 millimetres in order to reduce the risk of injury to pedestrians.
Standard
ATTENTION ASSIST: this Mercedes system detects driver drowsiness and gives a warning.
Standard
Motorway mode: from 90 km/h the entire width of the carriageway is illuminated, improving the driver’s range of vision by around 50 metres.
Optional
Bi-xenon headlamps: gas-discharge lamps for low and high beam improve safety at night.
Optional
Bluetooth interface: the mobile phone is wirelessly linked to the hands-free system.
Standard
Brake Assist PLUS: this system uses radar sensors to recognise an impending head-to-tail collision, calculates the necessary degree of braking assistance and makes it available immediately when the driver presses the brake pedal.
Optional in conjunction with DISTRONIC PLUS
COMAND APS: the navigation data are stored on a hard disc. Further functions include the Music Register and voice control.
Optional
Controller: the principal control for the infotainment system is mounted on the transmission tunnel.
Standard
Cd value: the drag coefficient of the new E-Class Coupé has been reduced by as much as eleven percent (depending on the model) to 0.24. This means that the new Mercedes Coupé is the most aerodynamically efficient series-production car in the world.
Standard
Digital radio: a special DAB tuner allows the reception of digital radio broadcasts in CD quality.
Optional
DISTRONIC PLUS: this radar-based proximity control system automatically maintains the E-Class Coupé at a set distance from the vehicle in front, braking it to a standstill if necessary and accelerating when the gap ahead is sufficiently large. If the distance to the vehicle ahead decreases too quickly, the system gives the driver visual and audible warnings.
Optional
Enhanced fog lamps: this function (part of the Intelligent Light System) works by pivoting the outer headlamp outwards by eight degrees and lowering its beam. This provides brighter illumination of the inner half of the road and reduces the self-dazzling effect caused by light reflected by the fog.
Optional
ESP®: this safety system is able to reduce the risk of skidding and warns of pressure loss in the tyres.
Standard
Headlamp Assist: a sensor on the windscreen automatically switches the headlamps on when darkness falls.
Standard
Speed Limit Assist: a camera fitted behind the windscreen detects speed limit signs. The relevant limit is then displayed in the instrument cluster.
Optional (available from Q4, 2009)
Belt feeder: the seat belt is automatically brought within easy reach of the front seat occupants when they get into the car.
Standard for driver and front passenger
Belt force limiters: this technology reduces the force exerted by the belt strap on the seat occupant during a crash.
Standard for all seats
Belt tensioners: any slack in the seat belt strap is instantly taken up during a crash to reduce the forward movement of the occupants caused by the impact.
Standard for all seats
Intelligent Light System: in combination with bi-xenon headlamps, this system offers five lighting functions which are activated depending on the driving and weather conditions.
Optional
KEYLESS-GO: the doors and boot lid can be opened without a key. The engine is started at the touch of a button.
Optional
Child seat recognition: a transponder system automatically recognises whether a rear-facing child seat is installed, and deactivates the front passenger airbag if this is the case.
Optional
Kneebag: in the event of a crash, an additional airbag reduces the forward movement of the driver caused by the impact.
Standard
THERMATIC automatic climate control: this improved system controls two temperature zones and offers numerous adjustments for individual passenger comfort.
Standard
THERMOTRONIC luxury automatic climate control: this system provides three-zone climate control, and allows individual climatisation modes to be set.
Optional
Radiator louvres: this newly developed feature allows the supply of cooling air to be regulated in accordance with the driving situation and thus improves the vehicle's aerodynamics.
Standard in the four-cylinder models and the E 350 CGI Blue-EFFICIENCY Coupé
Media Interface: this universal interface allows portable audio devices to be connected to and controlled by the infotainment system of the E-Class Coupé.
Optional
Multifunction steering wheel: the radio, telephone, navigation system, display and other devices can be controlled from the steering wheel.
Standard
Country mode: this function of the Intelligent Light System replaces the previous low-beam headlamps and provides broader and brighter illumination of the opposite road verge.
Optional
LINGUATRONIC: the voice control system operates the radio, CD/DVD-player, CD/DVD-changer, navigation system and telephone.
Optional; standard in conjunction with Audio 50 APS including 6-disc DVD changer and with COMAND APS
Memory function: three memory settings are stored for both the driver's and the front passenger seat. The settings for the steering wheel and exterior mirrors are also stored.
Optional
Multicontour seats: inflatable air chambers enable the seat contours and seat cushion length to be adjusted to the individual occupant.
Optional
NECK-PRO head restraints: crash-responsive head restraints support the heads of the driver and front passenger at an early stage during a rear-end collision, reducing the risk of a whiplash injury.
Standard
Panoramic sliding roof: a large glass surface extends from the windscreen to the rear window. The front section slides to the rear at the touch of a button. The roof closes automatically in the event of rain.
Optional
Parking guidance: side-mounted ultrasonic sensors measure parking spaces as the car drives past; the cockpit display gives the driver guidance on how to manoeuvre into the space safely.
Optional
PRE-SAFE®: anticipatory safety measures are taken to protect the occupants if an accident risk is detected.
Standard
PRE-SAFE® Brake: if there is imminent danger of a head-to-tail collision, this system brakes the E-Class automatically if the driver fails to react.
Optional in conjunction with DISTRONIC PLUS
Reversing camera: as soon as reverse gear is selected, the dashboard display shows the image from a camera covering the area immediately to the rear of the coupé.
Optional
Sidebags: these airbags reduce the risk of injury in a collision from the side.
Standard for driver and front passenger; optional for the rear
7G-TRONIC seven-speed automatic transmission: the world's only automatic car transmission with seven ratios is combined with the V6 engines and the V8.
Standard in the V6 and V8 models
Sound system: a multi-channel system with innovative digital technology, an output of 500 watts and twelve loudspeakers provides surround-sound for every seat.
Optional
Daytime driving lights: the twin circular halogen daytime driving lights switch on automatically. In combination with the Intelligent Light System, the daytime driving lights use LED technology.
Standard
Fuel consumption display: a display in the instrument cluster shows the current fuel consumption (extrapolated into litres per 100 km) and tells the driver when to shift to a higher gear.
Standard
Windowbags: like a curtain, these large airbags extend from the A to the C-pillar in a side impact.
