Verdict The Mercedes E-coupe is a refined, comfortable and luxurious car, yet it also manages to offer a well-balanced set up; just right for this type of car. But where are its roots?

It also has the effect of making the car look longer than its 4,568mm. The optional hard-drive-based navigation system is much more intuitive than the previous generation and the blue tooth system is easy to set up and automatically activates upon each entry to the vehicle. With the seats down you can fit your golf bags and cases of Pellegrino and that sculpture you picked up at Sotheby's.

Its bespoke dimensions and body panels indicate that it should not be looked at as simply an E with two doors. This is a two-door four-seater in the most traditional sense, with the purposeful proportions and languid character of the finest Merc coupes of old. The shifting is, of course, Mercedes smooth, and we commend the rev-blip that keeps one from noticing downshifts. It might not be the claimed 55.
