New sporty coupe part of Mercedes family

MERCEDES-BENZ is adding a Coupè to its C-Class family.

MERCEDES-BENZ is adding a Coupè to its C-Class family.

A newly 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 yet efficient engines likewise contribute to this.

New assistance systems provide safety of the very highest calibre. With its high-class appeal and generous interior, the new C-Class Coupé sets new standards in its segment. It arrives in December 2015.

Prof Dr. Thomas Weber, member of the board of management of Daimler AG and responsible for group research and Mercedes-Benz cars development, said: “Our new C-Class Coupé continues the philosophy of our exciting coupés.

“It combines thrilling design with agile sportiness and modern luxury. The C-Class Coupè therefore clearly pledges itself to stylish driving enjoyment.” As the sportiest variant of the C-Class, the Coupé displays its driving enjoyment-oriented character in an emotive and formally distinct design.

A sportily striking front section featuring diamond radiator grille and long bonnet — the new Coupè is 60 millimetres longer than its predecessor between the firewall and front axle alone — gives way to a low greenhouse whose lines flow into a bold and powerful-looking rear end incorporating the Mercedes coupè genes.

A high belt-line and frameless doors with free-standing exterior mirrors underscore the sporty character.
