    Compared to BMW and Audi the Merc really needs less fuel!! Nevertheless, just because of the design would still go for the E92!

    The E-Coupe. Stunning exterior and a great interior.

    A5 please!

    You have to see them in real life appreciate the beauty:bowdown:

    Despite the fact it uses more fuel that the Mercedes.

    IMO the A5 and the E-Coupe both look stunning, but the 3er looks a bit dated. Still, it probabbly drives the best.

    Like the Audi but in this company it looks like a fat chic with make up on and if I wasn't such a beemer fan it would have been the Merc for me. But alas I must go with my heart. 335i.

    I like all of these cars. :cool:

    By the way, I saw the new E-Class Coupe on the street for the first time today. I couldn't get a shot of it because I was driving and it was coming towards me on the opposite side of the road, no time to get my camera prepped up.

    Anyway, it looks stunning on the road in traffic. The coupe I saw was black and it looked very sleek and sporty. It doesn't really stand out but most Mercedes' are always very conservative in that regard. The car at least is hot. (y)

    The E-Coupe seem considerably superior in many categories, may it be thanks to the E-Class guts or are the competitors just slightly older? Both the A5 and E92 are due for facelifts in the next 18 months or so. It's quite shocking how much cheaper the A5 is, especially the options that are listed in the comparison. And for what it's I find it to be prettier than both and any other car under the €50,000 mark.

    I voted for the E, but after seeing an S5 in person the other day... OMG that car is gorgeous. Hard decision! They are all tops.

    Yes the S5 really is a stunning piece of work. I probably too should have abstained from voting before seeing the E-coupe in person.

    I'm not sure the E coupe will garner such a stance as the S5 does. It looks like a chunk of swoopy metal. The S5 is just perfectly proportioned and downright authoritative to look at.

    That's true...the E does look awkward from some angles, but when you look at it from a good angle...:bowdown:

    This is my favorite angle.

    I've seen all three IRL and if we put our brand biases aside for a minute, we'll all agree that the Audi S5 looks better than E92 and E-class Coupé. It has road presence and elegance, moreso than the competition. Even E92 have more eyefriendly design than the busy designed E-class Coupé but E92 doens't have road presence like a S5.
    This is my unbiased opinion. (y)

    So the newest, slowest and the most expensive one won?

    What does speed have to do with it? The E-coupe is on the Audi's toes and drinks less fuel while it's at it. The BMW's drivetrain is also obviously superior in terms of performance, but it consumes more at the same time. There's more to it then just speed and it seems the E-coupe had the measure of the Audi and BMW in a number of categories.

    Still they're all very unique in character, particularly the E-coupe which is obviously the comfort/cruiser orientated option, and offer the buyers the greatest choice. The BMW is obviosly for those who want a more pure/sports experience and the E-coupe is at the other end of the scale. There really is no loser! (y)

    Sure is! All three feels fresh and are different enough to be interesting in their own way. I'm not sure which one I would have if I had the choise...

    Let's say we do throw bias out the window, then I'd have to go with the E cos it is better lookin than the E92 and the A5 is just way too fat which makes it look disproportioned.

    I just fail to see how the A5 can be seen as fat compared to the ghastly obese E Class coupe. There are two extremely good looking cars in this segment and one that in my opinion can not compare in terms of overall, classical design.

    I will note that Mercedes Benz have taken a rather novel approach of using 'showy' stlying of late. I predict this will date qucikly and in the future be looked back upon as a design failure. I much prefer the previous generation examples compared to the latest refreshes from MB.
