2019 Mercedes-Benz E 450 Coupe vs 2019 Porsche 718 Cayman
Mercedes-Benz and Porsche are two of the most popular luxury nameplates in the industry, so you’d better believe that when these two go head to head, everyone will pay attention. Last year, the E-Class Coupe segment was headed by the base E 400. While that model displayed impressive performance specs and interior amenities, it has been upgraded to the new E 450 Coupe. This new model has many of the same highlights that made it so popular last year, but now it has even greater power and overall performance. The Porsche 718 Cayman remains largely unchanged for 2019, meaning any increase in price won’t really be justified. Below you’ll find a helpful table of head to head comparisons, which will guide you in the right direction in your coupe-buying process. Check it out!

Highlights in the 2019 E 450 Coupe
The Porsche 718 series has a distinguished exterior profile with the sloping hood and oval headlights, but the E 450 Coupe wins when it comes to performance. The true test of a sports coupe is what it offers under the hood, and the E 450 Coupe came to play with the 3.0L V6 biturbo engine grinding out 362 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. These numbers are far superior to the Cayman, and they get even better if you upgrade to the performance-enhanced AMG® E 53 Coupe. The performance specs in the AMG® E 53 Coupe, the top performing coupe for the E-Class, far outdo the top performing coupe for the 718 Cayman (429 horsepower vs 365 horsepower).
While performance is important, the E 450 Coupe has a lot more to offer. Inside you’ll find a variety of comfort and convenience features, starting with the available Nappa leather upholstery and multicontour front seats with massage. Available features like the Air Balance cabin fragrance system and ENERGIZING® Comfort will help set the mood for any occasion. Other available amenities include a panorama roof, 12.3-inch infotainment screen, online navigation map, Burmester Surround Sound System, and much more.
