The E-Class Coupé features design that is seductive, with the signature AMG styling for front and rear spoiler, diamond radiator grille with pins in chrome, and 19-inch AMG 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels.
A new highlight of the muscular rear section is the completely redesigned inner workings of the two-piece taillights. The E 300 AMG Line Coupé is further equipped with MULTIBEAM LED that offers brighter and more natural illumination at night. Adaptive Highbeam Assist Plus controls the LEDs by switching between low, partial main beam and main beam automatically.

“The sporty and luxurious Mercedes-Benz E 300 AMG Line Coupé is the latest introduction to the Mercedes-Benz dream cars portfolio. With its perfect proportions, the new coupé exhibits a surface-accentuated design with reduced lines and sensuous forms, emphasizing the Coupé’s sporty and luxurious personality. The four frameless, retractable side windows and the absence of a visible B-pillar underlines the dynamic looks of this new coupé. It conveys an air of luxury and style alike. It is, truly a masterpiece,”Michael Jopp, Vice President, Sales & Marketing Passenger Cars, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia.
The interior of the coupé combines contemporary style with sporty luxury. The essential lines of the interior have a clear definition. The upper section of the dashboard appears to hover; it rests on generously proportioned trim elements that flow through into the doors. The exceptionally high-quality materials selected, together with the quality of craftsman-ship employed, serve to emphasize the car’s sporty, stylish character and exude outstandingly high-class appeal.
Other luxurious features include a panoramic sliding sunroof, ambient lighting with 64 colours and three-zones to create a host of individual highlights, and the legendary Burmester® surround sound system.
The Mercedes-Benz E 300 AMG Line Coupé is fitted with an entirely new, intelligent steering wheel. The control surfaces sport a high-gloss black finish, while the trim elements and surrounds have a silver shadow finish.
The new Mercedes-Benz E 300 AMG Line Coupé is equipped with the latest generation MBUX multimedia System (NTG 6). The information in the instrument cluster and on the media display is easily legible on the large, high-resolution screens. Dual 12.3-inch displays create a widescreen cockpit with a wide range of personalization.
The new Mercedes-Benz E 300 AMG Line Coupé has the latest generation of Mercedes-Benz driving assistance systems providing cooperative support to drivers. This results in an especially high level of active safety: the Coupé is able to react quickly and intelligently if the driver is unable to do so. The hands-off detection feature of the steering wheel now works on a capacitive basis, thereby enhancing user-friendliness when driving in semi-automated mode.
In addition to the standard safety and assistance features, the E 300 AMG Line Coupé is also equipped with Driving Assistance package, which includes Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC, Active Steering Assist, Active Brake Assist, Evasive Steering Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Active Blind Spot Assist and PRE-SAFE Plus
