Mercedes-Benz has expanded the E-Class range with new petrol and diesel engines.

The E 53 4Matic+ is equipped with a 3.0-litre biturbo in-line six cylinder petrol engine, with EQ Boost technology that adds 20hp and 250Nm on top of the system output of 435hp and 520Nm torque.
Performance for the Coupé is 4.4 seconds 0-62mph (4.5 seconds for the Cabriolet) and economy of 32.5mpg (combined cycle) and 203g/km CO2 (Cabriolet: 32.1 mpg and 200 g/km).
