A twin-scroll turbo, Direct Injection and CAMTRONIC valve adjustment team up for 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. And though it's powerful, it's also quite efficient, with up to 33 highway mpg.
Available 4MATIC® all-wheel drive responds to the traction at each wheel. It can send power to where grip can be turned into go, for added winter and wet-road confidence, and more dry-corner fun.
The 4-wheel multilink suspension is sport-tuned and subtly lowered for agility and attitude. Selective damping instantly firms up in corners, yet stays refined on rough roads.
DYNAMIC SELECT dials in performance with the tap of a console button. Four preset modes vary shift points, throttle, steering and more, from easygoing ECO to sharp Sport+. Or create your own mode.
An ECO Start/Stop system automatically shuts off the engine at stoplights and other idle situations, to save fuel and reduce emissions. As soon as the driver lifts off the brake, the engine instantly restarts, for immediate acceleration response. The ECO Start/Stop system can also be shut off by the driver at any time.
With a greater range of ratios and shorter steps between gears, the 9-speed automatic changes gears more quickly yet more smoothly, too. The lighter, more versatile transmission enhances quiet riding comfort and fuel-efficiency. The electronic selector and shift paddles let you control all gear changes with your hands on the steering wheel. And drivers can vary the shift modes via the innovative DYNAMIC SELECT system.
Sport tuning of the springs and shock absorbers teams with optimized kinematics and a 15-mm lower ride height to deliver more precise handling response. Sport steering is tuned for even greater precision and feedback. Yet even with its highly agile cornering, ride comfort remains silky, a benefit of the car's long wheelbase and extremely rigid body structure.
Standard Torque Vectoring Brake technology provides additional control and precision in turns via targeted rear-wheel braking. If the vehicle's Electronic Stability Program (ESP®) detects understeer while cornering, the system applies the brake to the inside rear wheel, temporarily shifting torque distribution in favor of the outside wheel. This can help the vehicle to gently pivot in compensation, putting it on a line of travel, or vector, better suited to the turn.
Four individual seats highlight the artful cabin. Hug the road with any of nine 18-inch or 19-inch wheel designs, and three styling choices: standard, AMG Line, and the black-accented Night Package. AMG Line with Night Package shown above.
Aggressively sculpted to slice the wind and stand out in a crowd, the C-Class Coupe is poised to grip the road and grab the attention of anyone who's passionate about performance and style. LED headlamps flank its diamond-block grille. Muscular fender flares and sharp, flowing lines sweep into a fastback tail with strong shoulders, wraparound LED taillamps and an integrated spoiler. Frameless door glass is one of many sleek details.
Offering both front- and rear-seat passengers sweeping skyward views, this fully functional glass sunroof features a large panel that can either tilt up for ventilation or slide back for an open-air feeling. An interior power sunshade lets you adjust the amount of sunlight entering the cabin.
Bold and muscular yet flowing, the standard sport lower bodywork looks as if was shaped as much in the gym as in the wind tunnel. Large mesh air intakes underscore a wide grille with a black diamond-block texture and integrated Star. Chrome details add subtle highlights to the sporty shape.
Two smartphone-like pads on the steering wheel let you scroll, swipe and select what you see on the car's two vivid screens. The AMG Line gives the wheel a sporty flat-bottom design.
The 10.25" central screen vividly presents audio, vehicle settings, plus standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto. Navigation options include COMAND® with voice control of many cabin features, or a full-featured system on a tiny SD card.
No cable required with the available wireless charging. A station in the console lets you charge your compatible phone's battery as you drive.
A network of LEDs can create not just a soothing ambience in the cabin, but one you can alter to suit your mood, or even create one. The 64 selectable colors and adjustable brightness let you control the atmosphere like never before. Edge-lighting glows from around the console and numerous cabin areas, while the door sills welcome you with Mercedes-Benz logos backlit in soft white.
A vivid 12.3-inch screen directly in front of the driver offers customizable analog-style and digital displays for instrumentation. The panel also integrates a large multifunction menu screen with illustrated and animated menus for vehicle information, settings and driver-assistance features. Classic, Sport and Progressive instrumentation styles can be selected, featuring a variety of analog-style, digital and graphical readouts.
A leap in ease and efficiency pioneered by Mercedes-Benz, KEYLESS-GO® lets you unlock, start and drive away without removing the SmartKey from your pocket or purse. You can lock and unlock the doors with a touch of the exterior handles, and start the engine by stepping on the brake pedal and pushing the KEYLESS-START button on the dash.
One of the most respected makers of handcrafted high-end home audio, Germany's Burmester® has developed a surround-sound system that's specifically tailored to the C-Class. With 13 high-quality speakers and a 590-watt 9-channel digital amplifier, the system fills the cabin with pure digital surround sound while seamlessly compensating for ambient noise. Exquisitely detailed aluminum speaker grilles are as rewarding to the eyes as the system's output is to the most discerning ears.
Electrically heated front seats quickly take the chill out of even the coldest day. Three levels of warming automatically step down after several minutes to the lowest setting.
All new Mercedes-Benz vehicles are protected by our New Vehicle Limited Warranty, covering defects in material or workmanship for 48-months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. For added protection, the Mercedes-Benz Extended Limited Warranty offers continued peace of mind with prolonged coverage tailored to your needs.
Standard Blind Spot Assist helps make driving or even exiting the car safer. Available assists let you change lanes with a tap of your finger. Slow your cruising speed for an offramp. And look out for danger ahead, even if it's coming from behind.
A Mercedes-Benz first, PRE-SAFE® can detect instability during certain vehicle maneuvers that suggest a collision or rollover is imminent. It can then tighten the front seat belts, adjust the front passenger seat, and close the windows and sunroof, all in an effort to better prepare the occupants and restraints in the moments before a collision. If no accident occurs, the seat-belt tensioners reverse, and you simply readjust your seat, open the sunroof and continue on your way.
With longer life, quicker illumination and beams that approximate daylight even more closely than xenon headlamps, multi-element LED headlamps enhance both vision and visibility during nighttime driving. Bright white LED Daytime Running Lamps and all other front light functions are integrated within the flowing sculpture of the headlamp assemblies, making the design as appealing as it is illuminating. Taillamps feature a distinctive C-shaped LED design plus LED turn signals and brake lamps.
For a better view of what's behind your vehicle when reversing, a high-resolution camera displays a live view on the central in-dash screen. Steering-dependent active guidelines on the screen can help you back into a parking space, and you can select between wide-angle and even wider 180-degree views.
An advanced system of 8 air bags offers 10-way occupant protection. Standard are dual two-stage front air bags, combined thorax/pelvic bags, and knee air bags for the driver and front passenger, plus side curtain air bags for both seating rows. Side-impact air bags are also standard for each outboard rear seating position.
The Antilock Braking System (ABS) can sense impending wheel lockup under heavy braking, and pump the front brakes individually or the rear brakes together up to 30 times per second. By preventing wheel lockup, ABS helps preserve the driver's steering ability during hard braking.
Greater use of aluminum helps the body shell of the C-Class Coupe elevate its overall rigidity, occupant protection and acousting qualities while reducing weight, even with a significant increase in cabin space. Along with high-strength and ultrahigh-strength steel, the front fenders, hood, doors and trunklid are made of aluminum. Strategic reinforcements are made of diecast, extruded and stamped aluminum, as well as heat-treated steel and laser-welded, varying-thickness steel.
This safety breakthrough first introduced by Mercedes-Benz continually monitors your driving inputs and the vehicle's motion to help keep it going in your intended direction, especially in corners and during evasive maneuvers. If it detects wheelspin, severe understeer (plowing), or oversteer (fishtailing), ESP® can brake individual wheels and reduce engine power to help bring the vehicle under control.
