Athletic and sporty, the vivid, sensual design of the new C-Class Coupe cuts a fine figure on the road and embodies modern luxury.
Taking inspiration from its more premium cousin, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class coupe looks like a chip off of the ol’ S-Class block. Mercedes-Benz went ahead and released some official press photos of its C300 and C300 4MATIC Coupe to the world earlier today (Aug. 13, 2015) in an official press release and it looks like Mercedes scaled down the regular S-Class coupe and that’s a good thing.
Up front, the C-Class coupe takes styling cues from the S-Class and tones it down a bit. The headlights are less aggressive and curved, the front chin spoiler is a little less angled and edge’d and the gaping side intakes on either side are much smaller and rounded. Outback the C-class coupe’s taillights take a similar look from the S-class with much of the rear glass extending through the rear quarter panel. The C-class coupe takes the dimpled rear bumper on either side as well. Just like its big brother, there’s a nicely integrated faux-diffuser smack dab in the middle of the dual exhausts. At a third of the price of its S-class elder, its quite the coupe.
"With a 3.1 inch (80mm) longer wheelbase, the C-Class Coupe is 3.7 inches (95 mm) longer and 1.6 inches (40 mm) wider. The increased vehicle volume above all creates more spaciousness for the driver and front passenger. There is more shoulder room, elbow room and headroom in all seats."
Powering this baby S-Class will be Mercedes’s 2.0 turbocharged inline four cylinder delivering 241 HP and 273 lb-ft. Proportions wise, compared to the old C-class coupe this one is four inches longer, 1.6 inches longer with an additional three inches in wheelbase. Sports suspension with steel springs is standard on the coupe which sits .6 inches lower than the sedan. In addition, there’s a wide range of standard accessories as well as safety features.
