Athletic and sporty, the vivid, sensuous design of the new Mercedes-Benz Coupé cuts a fine figure on the road and embodies modern luxury. At the same time, its interior elevates beauty and style to a sporty level. A dynamically configured chassis, with optional air suspension, forms the basis for a high level of suspension comfort, low road roar and tire vibration, agile handling, and driving pleasure. Lightweight construction to reduce weight, excellent aerodynamics and high-performance, efficient engines likewise play their part.

As the sportiest variant of the C-Class, the Coupé displays its driving enjoyment-oriented character in an emotive and at the same time formally distinct design. Clean lines and sensually arranged surfaces structure the side sections into vivid light and shadow effects. One particular highlight is the long drawn-out dropping line typical of a coupé.

 

The interior is likewise a statement of the Mercedes-Benz design philosophy of sensual purity and combines emotion with intelligence. Although it exudes athletic and youthful charm, it has grown in maturity. Driver and passengers enjoy an ambience that leans toward the interior of the C-Class Saloon yet raises it to a new, sporty level. With an 80 millimeter longer wheelbase, the C-Class Coupé is 95 millimeters longer and 40 millimeters wider than the predecessor. The increased vehicle volume above all creates more spaciousness for the driver and front passenger. There is more shoulder room, elbow room and headroom on all seats.

 

Drivers can choose the character of their Coupé at the push of a button: sporty, comfortable or consumption-optimized. To this end, the driver can select one of five driving modes using the DYNAMIC SELECT switch: “ECO”, “Comfort”, “Sport”, “Sport +” and “Individual”. Selecting “Individual” allows the driver to customize the vehicle settings to personal preferences.

Powerful and efficient four-cylinder petrol engines with ECO start/stop function provided for sporty performance and driving pleasure. All are compliant with the Euro 6 emissions standard. Compared with their predecessors, they consume up to 20 percent less fuel.
