Mercedes already gave us an early preview of the 2010 E-Class Coupe that will debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month and now the company has released a new promotional video showing the coupe in action.

Designed as a replacement for the CLK, the new coupe adopts the E-Class sedan's front end and features Mercedes latest design language. The sleek exterior enables the coupe to boast an extremely low drag coefficient of 0.24, making it the world's most aerodynamically efficient production car. Inside, the E-Class design theme carries over with the biggest difference being two individual rear seats instead of the sedan's standard rear bench.

Of course beauty is more than skin deep, so Mercedes outfitted the new model with several updated engines that feature more power and improved fuel efficiency. Among the new petrol models being offered are the four-cylinder 250 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY that features 150 kW as well as a combined fuel consumption of 7.0L/100km and the E 350 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY which uses spray-guided direct petrol injection to enable it to produce 215 kW and average 8.5L/100km. On the diesel side there is a new E 250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY that features two-stage turbocharging, precise piezo injectors and the latest common-rail technology, it cranks out 150 kW and 500 Nm of torque which should allow it to return 5.3L/100km in the combined cycle.

An American launch is scheduled for later this summer but in Europe the new model should begin arriving at dealerships this May.
