2012 Mercedes-Benz E350 4Matic Coupe Walkaround: Video

 
Follow Joel

Mercedes-Benz replaced the aging CLK Coupe with the graceful lines of the new E Class Coupe back in 2009. But buyers who wanted all-wheel drive have been forced to look at the competition for the last two years. Mercedes has finally decided to rectify the situation by fitting its 4Matic all-wheel drive system to the 2012 E350 Coupe.

The 2012 E350 4Matic Coupe is powered by the same 3.5-liter V-6 as the E350 sedan. Producing 302 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque, the E350 4Matic Coupe isn't a rocketship, but Mercedes-Benz says it'll hit 60 mph in 6.1 seconds.

The fourth generation 4Matic all-wheel drive system is incorporated into the E350 Coupe's seven-speed automatic transmission. The system has little to no effect on fuel economy which is rated at 19 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.

The 2012 E350 4Matic Coupe will go on sale in April with a base price of $53,175.

  1. Isn't April the wrong time for a 4matic to go on sale?

    Bad stuff?

  2. I just drove this coupe and didn't like it at all. It reminds me of my daughter's Honda. It is also uncomfortably small compared to the E sedans. You should know this body is a "C", very different from the usual E which I have been driving for 5 years. After driving the 2012 E350 Sedan, I am ordering mine and would advise anyone interested in an E Class to pass up the coupe. 'Just not impressed with this little tinny and cheap feeling car!
