Athletic and sporty, the vivid, sensuous design of the new Coupe 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 tyre vibration, agile handling, and driving pleasure. Lightweight construction to reduce weight, excellent aerodynamics and high-performance, efficient engines likewise play their part. A host of assistance systems provides safety of the very highest calibre. With its high-class appeal and generous interior, the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe sets new standards in its segment.
As the sportiest variant of the C-Class, the Coupe displays its driving enjoyment-oriented character in an emotive and at the same time formally distinct design. A sporty striking front section featuring diamond radiator grille and long bonnet - the new Coupe is 60 millimetres longer than its predecessor between the firewall and front axle alone - gives way to a crouched greenhouse the lines of which flow into a bold and powerful-looking rear end incorporating the genes of Mercedes Coupes. A high beltline and frameless doors with free-standing exterior mirrors underscore the sporty character.
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 Coupe. In contrast to the C-Class Saloon, the dropping line extends further past the rear wheel arch. To underscore the Coupe's sporty disposition, the suspension is 15 millimetres lower than that of the Saloon, making it a very sporty proposition when combined with the standard 17-inch tyres. This svelte newcomer made its debut at the recent Frankfurt Motor Show and is due to make its South African appearance early in the new year. The local line-up will consist of; C200 Coupe (135 kW 2,0-litre turbopetrol), C300 (180 kW 2.0-litre turbopetrol) and the C220d, delivering either 125 kW or 150 kW.The flagship C63 models are powered by the fearsome twin-turbo 4,0-litre V8 that delivers 349 kW and 650 Nm of torque in the “standard” model, and 375 kW and 700 Nm in the “S”. The latter model will join the local line-up. According to Gustav Rossouw from John William's Motors in Bloemfontein, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe is priced as follows:
