Mercedes C-Class Coupe - Interior & comfort
The Mercedes C-Class Coupe boasts the same plush interior as the saloon and estate

The interior of the C-Class coupe is virtually identical to those of the C-Class saloon and estate, which is no bad thing: the inside is smart, well built and comfortable. There's also lots of nice detailing and materials used on the dashboard itself, while the interior is as plush as you’d expect from a brand like Mercedes. One of the few differences between the Coupe and the rest of the C-Class range is some new standard sport seats, which are comfortable and easy to adjust.
The latest C-Class Coupe range has been simplified somewhat; there are three trim levels, but they’re all based on the AMG Line spec. It includes a 10.25-inch infotainment display, sat nav, DAB radio, keyless start, LED headlamps, Parktronic, an AMG body styling kit, sports suspension and 18-inch alloy wheels.
Opting for the AMG Line Premium - essentially an options pack - brings a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, online features, an upgraded sound system, ambient lighting and wireless phone charging. Above that, the AMG Line Premium Plus adds a Burmester surround-sound system, keyless entry, a powered tailgate, a panoramic sunroof and 360-degree parking camera.
The AMG C43 adds a performance exhaust system, a unique alloy wheel design and configurable AMG Ride Control sports suspension, as well as a subtle lip spoiler. You can add the Premium and Premium Plus packs onto the C43, and you can also add the latter onto the C63 S. The C63 S comes with 19-inch alloys, an increased top speed, a Track Pack, memory seats and other AMG goodies.
You can add plenty of options to the Mercedes C-Class Coupe, starting from metallic paint (between £685 and £1,795), trim finishers, leather upholstery and alloy wheels.
Semi-autonomous technology is introduced with the optional Driving Assistance package. It includes active blind-spot monitoring, active lane-keeping assistance, active cruise control with steering assistance and 'Stop& Go Pilot' – a system that's able to match the speed of the car in front, both on the move and in stop-start traffic.
While Airmatic air suspension is standard on the AMG C43, other models can be fitted with the system as part of the Dynamic Handling package for £900. It allows you to tune the suspension for stiffness or smoothness, depending on your mood and the road conditions.
