Full price list for Mercedes C-Class Coupe revealed
Stylish coupe rivals BMW 4 Series and Audi A5; on sale now priced from £30,955
Full pricing for the new Mercedes C-Class Coupe has been revealed, after the car made its European debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. The new coupe, which is on sale now, rivals the BMW 4 Series coupe and the Audi A5 coupe.
Prices start from £30,955 in the UK for an entry-level C200 Sport, which is around £3,000 more expensive than the cheapest C-Class saloon. Deliveries start in December 2015.
The front end of the car remains faithful to the styling of the C-Class saloon and estate models; the coupe is sleeker and more curvaceous than its rather angular predecessor. The grille is similar to that of the recently revised Mercedes A-Class hatchback, too. The bonnet is 60mm longer than before, while the frameless front doors stretch further back.
The rear of the car is very similar to that of the larger Mercedes S-Class Coupe, with a sloping roofline flowing into a curved bootlid and horizontally stretched taillights.
The plush C-Class Coupe interior is virtually identical to that of the C-Class saloon and there are no surprises as far as the switchgear and infotainment technology are concerned. However, the C-Class Coupe does get its own sports seats with automatic seatbelt feeders as standard, as well as model-specific colour combinations. Buyers are able to choose from saddle brown, porcelain and (in the Edition 1 model) brown/black with turquoise stitching.
The car is 95mm longer and 40mm wider than the previous C-Class Coupe, but also manages to be lighter thanks to increased use of aluminium in its construction. That weight loss should help with both performance and fuel economy, while those larger dimensions should give occupants more space.
The C-Class Coupe will come with lowered adjustable suspension for improved handling, while the brand’s AIRMATIC air suspension will be an option. The air setup has proved very effective at providing a smooth ride in other Mercedes models by continuously adjusting the suspension according to the road surface.
All Coupe models have satellite navigation, LED headlights, parking sensors, active parking assistance, a reversing camera and autonomous emergency braking. For buyers wanting to make their C-Class look as sporty as possible, the AMG Line trim level adds special bumpers and sills, plus larger AMG light alloy wheels. The look continues inside AMG Line models, with sports pedals and steering wheel, plus man-made leather and micro-fibre upholstery with contrasting stitching.
For that extra-special touch, Mercedes offers its Premium and Premium Plus packages on the C-Class Coupe. The former adds a panoramic glass roof ambient lighting, keyless start and memory seats, while the latter throws in a Burmeister premium stereo system and COMAND online services as well.
The C-Class Coupe is available with one of two petrol engines or one of two diesels. Fuel economy figures haven’t been revealed yet, but the C220d emits the least CO2, at just 107g/km, for £20-a-year road tax. A C300 BlueTEC diesel hybrid model is likely to be added to the range soon and there's also the possibility of a plug-in hybrid.
The super-quick AMG version will go on sale at the same time as the rest of the engine range. Its 4.0-litre twin turbocharged V8 will produce 476bhp, or 510bhp if you go for the more extreme S version.
The new C-Class Coupe is on sale now, starting from £30,955. Deliveries start in December 2015.
