Mercedes-Benz has revealed two new models in the closing stages of May 2020, that being the E-Class coupé and cabriolet, as well as the E 53 AMG 4Matic+, also in coupé and cabriolet guises.

The flagship AMG variants brandish more aggressive styling cues to let the world know it is not just dealing with a regular Mercedes. Rear of both convertible and coupe looks similar as the tail light design hasn't changed, it comes with revised bumper.

"In 2019, the E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet finished second in their segment and will continue to be an important part of our local line-up", he said. Much like the sedan, the cabin has been updated with loads of tech.

According to Mercedes-Benz Cars Australia head of media relation Jerry Stamoulis, the two-door E-Classes have always had a "loyal following" with interest in the models expected to spike in the wake of their debut. That setup comes with a massive 12.3-inch central touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, and an equally large 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. Gone are the rotary dials and in its place is a touchpad that acts as a mouse to navigate the menus. Plus, the new steering wheel features capacitive sensors in the rim, so the vehicle knows whether you're paying attention without you having to make slight adjustments at speed.

Under the hood sports the biggest change for the E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet. The E450 drops the 3.0-liter V6, now getting the same turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine with EQ Boost as the updated sedan, good for 362 horsepower (269 kilowatts) and 369 pound-feet (500 newton-meters) of torque.

That said, the entry-level 1.5-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder unit with 48V starter-alternator available in the other body styles has been left on the bench.

Under the hood, the AMG GT R is powered by the same 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engines which produce the output of 584bhp of power and 700Nm of torque and mated with seven-speed dual clutch transmission.

Mercedes-Benz Australia has scheduled the 2021 E-Class's local launch for October this year.

Notable optional features will include heated armrests and steering wheel, cooled front seats, massaging front seats, augmented reality for the navigation system, and a head-up display. With the updated Coupe and Cabriolet now launched, the E-Class lineup is now complete.
