Mercedes-Benz has revealed its new E-class coupe ahead of its UK arrival next April.

From launch, three petrol engines and a diesel variant will be offered, with the 194hp 2.0-litre diesel being the most frugal, emitting 106g/km of CO2 and returning 71mpg on the official cycle.

That places it in the 23% Benefit-in-Kind tax bracket for 2017/18, which comes into force next April.

Petrol-wise, the most fleet-friendly model will be the E200, which is powered by a 184hp 2.0-litre unit, which emits 136g/km of CO2 and returns 47mpg, placing it in the 26% BIK tax bracket.

The other two engines are the more powerful 245hp 2.0-litre petrol, and a 333hp 3.0-litre unit.

The new model's interior is based on the saloon's, which can be optioned with two 12.3-inch displays for the infotainment, navigation and instrument panels.

Entry-level models, meanwhile, contain traditional dials and two screens to house infotainment and sat-nav.

Safety-wise, the E-class is fitted with active brake assist as standard, as well as a semi-autonomous cruise control system which can work at speeds up to 130mph.

The E-class coupe also features the firm's Remote Parking Pilot program which allows the vehicle to move in and out of garages, or parking spaces remotely by using a smartphone app.
