The expressive C-Class Coupé sees Mercedes-Benz, now in its 125th year of corporate history, entering a new market segment and for the first time offering a compact, classic coupé. This sporty two-door car deploys the progressive technology featured on the recently launched new generation of the C-Class to deliver an impressive coupé format that combines pure fun at the wheel with exemplary efficiency. In terms of attitude, this debuting model is tailored to a customer group for whom professional success, love of life and a strong sense of responsibility are all important.
The design: dynamic with classic coupé proportions
From the side, the new coupé beguiles the onlooker with its compact proportions, low silhouette with powerful shoulders and a narrow C-pillar in a classic three-box design. Typical coupé features include the short front overhang, long bonnet, steeply raked windscreen and long, stretched out roof. The unique highlight of the C-Class Coupé, not found in the saloon version, is the panoramic glass sliding sunroof that opens up to new ambience at the touch of a button.
At the front, the new coupé shares the same styling as the latest C-Class and yet still has its own twist. Exclusive to officially imported C-Class Coupé is the Edition 1 package which include AMG bodystyling (front and rear bumpers plus side skirts) and AMG 18-inch lightweight alloy wheels. From the rear, the new C-Class Coupé looks sportily short because the roof flows beyond the rear axle with the steeply raked rear window and fluid C-pillars. Edition 1’s brushed finish stainless steel exhaust tailpipe flank the left side of the rear diffuser.
