Mercedes C-Class Coupe - Practicality & boot space

No rear doors but the Mercedes C-Class coupe is still very usable

Carbuyer Rating

4.0 out of 5

Practicality & boot space Rating

3.5 out of 5

Naturally the loss of the two rear doors – part and parcel of creating a coupe version of a saloon – doesn’t enhance the practicality of this particular C-Class model, but the C-Class Coupe is still practical enough to use every day.

Mercedes C-Class coupe interior space & storage

Space for front-seat occupants in the C-Class Coupe is excellent, but room in the rear is rather more restricted, particularly because of the car’s sloping roofline. Head and knee room is likely to be fairly tight for anyone over six feet tall.

Boot space

Most C-Class Coupe models have boot space of 380 litres, but this shrinks to 360 litres in the C200. This is smaller than you’ll find in both the BMW 4 Series and the Audi A5, which have 450-litre boots. The C63 has even less room for luggage – just 355 litres, making it quite a bit smaller than the 445 litres found in the BMW M4.


The majority of C-Class Coupe models have a maximum braked towing capacity of 1,800kg. The C180 with a manual gearbox can only manage 1,400kg, while the C63 model isn't deemed suitable for towing.
