Here we have the all-new C238 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe, which we’ve had the privilege to drive in Catalonia, Spain recently. A full review will be up on paultan.org soon, but for now, here’s a detailed walk-around tour of the new premium grand tourer from Mercedes-Benz.

Expected to arrive in Malaysia in the third quarter of 2017, the new E-Class Coupe is a large departure from the previous-generation C207 model, which, despite having the looks of the W212 E-Class, was actually based on the W204 C-Class platform and technologies (much like the two CLK models before it). This new C238, though, is the first genuine E-Class Coupe since the C124 model over 20 years ago.

Being based on the W213 E-Class brings about plenty of benefits: the new coupe is more comfort oriented, far larger inside and best yet, it has access to the full suite of advanced technologies from Merc’s latest premium executive family. It’s definitely a clear step up from both the outgoing model and the C205 C-Class Coupe, now perfectly befitting of the E-Class badge.

Do watch the video above for a detailed look at the new car’s advancements and highlights, both inside and outside, and let us know what you think of this new BMW 6 Series rival.
