The Mercedes E-Class Coupe replaced the CLK in 2009, the change in name signifying a slight increase in size for Mercedes’ stylish two-door model. Style is very important in the coupe class and the updated E-Class Coupe delivers, with a sleeker grille, new headlamps, a more aggressive lower bumper and a sweeping roofline creating a dramatic shape.

It's quite practical, too, with a large boot and useable rear seats. Taller people may find that the roof is a little low in the back, but in general the car feels spacious and has plenty of storage spaces to keep your everyday stuff hidden away.

The range has been simplified to just two spec levels, SE and AMG. The SE is only available with the entry-level E220 CDI four-cylinder diesel engine, but still comes with leather-trimmed heated seats, a DAB digital radio, climate control and 17-inch alloy wheels as standard.

AMG models cost around £2,500 extra, but add more aggressive styling, larger wheels, a sporty three-spoke steering wheel and metal pedals.

Both trims have all kinds of technology available as options to enhance your coupe experience, from comprehensive parking systems that automatically drive into a space, to technology that keeps you awake when it thinks you’re getting drowsy.

A wide choice of engines and the two specifications mean there's an E-Class Coupe for almost all tastes. The entry-level diesel is perfect for those who want the style of a coupe without worrying about running costs.

The E350 diesel will reward those after a speedy coupe that’s a pleasure to drive and still manages to be quiet. There’s also a powerful E400 petrol model that gets all kinds of sporty styling for those who want to show off on the road.
