Practicality & boot space Rating

3.0 out of 5

The Mercedes E-Class Coupe is surprisingly practical, with decent space in the back. Getting in and out of the rear isn't too much trouble either, thanks to the wide-opening front doors.

It’s a long old car, coming in at 4.7 metres in length. But you needn’t worry about parking – all E-Class Coupes have a parking system as standard that detects potential parking spaces, tells you the best angle to steer into the space and can even automatically drive into the space - up to a point.

Mercedes E-Class Coupe interior space and storage

There's a good amount of legroom in the back and you can tuck your feet underneath the seat in front, but headroom is only average thanks to the sloping roofline – people who are six foot tall or more may feel short-changed. However, it's possible to seat four inside the car, as long as the driver and front passenger don't like to sit too far back.

There’s no fifth seat – that spot in the back is taken up by a storage tray and cup-holders. Other storage is taken care of by a large glovebox, a lidded bin on the centre console between the seats and some deep door pockets.

Mercedes E-Class Coupe boot space

The E-Class coupe can carry up to 450 litres of stuff. It’s shallow, but it'll hold two sets of golf clubs with ease. Fold down the rear seats and you could even fit in a bike. The boot also features a handy pull-out tray, which turns into a shopping storage container.

Compared to the rest of the range, the saloon offers 540 litres luggage room and the estate a generous 695 litres. The convertible version’s boot is, inevitably, smaller. The coupe offers almost exactly the same amount of space as the Audi A5 coupe and BMW 4 Series.
