The latest Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe (C205) leans heavily on the C-Class Saloon (W205) where its appearance is concerned. The two share the same front-end styling up to the leading edge of the front doors. From the rear, the new C-Class Coupe closely mimics the design of its larger sibling – the S-Class Coupe.
Boasting a perfectly toned body, the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe’s dynamic lines and clear-cut, muscular surfaces are the essence of sporty coupe design. Powerful features such as the new front bumper and diamond radiator grille and sports exhaust with twin tailpipes, which are integrated into the rear bumper, and LED taillights lend a strong, distinctive character.
Inside the cabin, the new steering wheel with Touch Control buttons and (depending on equipment line) fully digital instruments and larger displays enable cutting-edge operation. Wireless charging for all smartphones supporting the Qi standard, smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, fully digital instrument display with three styles – Classic, Progressive and Sporty, 10.25-inch media display with 1920 x 720 pixels that showcases brilliant images are just some of the noteworthy new features. Seating duties are ably taken care of by sports seats with integrated head restraints while sports pedals in brushed stainless steel with rubber studs guarantee that your right foot will find a secure placement every time.
Propelled by the all-new 1.5-litre turbocharged engine with the aid of EQ Boost mild-hybrid technology, the former produces 184 bhp and 280 Nm while the latter adds a useful 14 bhp whenever the 9G-TRONIC PLUS automatic gearbox performs a kickdown with the 48V starter/alternator acting as an electric motor to increase performance. Put the pedal to the metal and the coupe accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.9 seconds while maximum speed is 240 km/h. Amazing performance for an engine this small!
The Mercedes-Benz C200 Coupe AMG Premium Plus is equipped with AMG components including bodystyling and 18-inch 5-spoke light-alloy wheels. The Premium Plus Package features adds features such as the 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster display for the driver, Burmester surround sound system, ambient lighting, COMAND Online system with touchpad, HANDS-FREE ACCESS, KEYLESS-GO Comfort package and panoramic sliding sunroof.
