Top 5 Reasons To Love The New C-Class – Coupe and Cabriolet Edition

Just a few weeks after the world premiere of the new C-Class saloon and estate, the two-door version of the C-Class proves it is also enjoying its new even sportier form with the Coupé and Cabriolet. Sportiness and driving pleasure have been enhanced with a sharper design, digital cockpit, DYNAMIC BODY CONTROL suspension and new four-cylinder engines, some of which are equipped with 48 V technology (EQ Boost). The Coupé and Cabriolet will be available at our Hertfordshire sites (Bishop’s Stortford, Hertford and Stevenage) in July 2018.

1. More dynamic design

The new-look C-Class combines emotionality with intelligence. The vehicle’s appearance is defined in particular by its front and tail end and the design of the headlamps and tail lights. The front design exudes sportiness and lifestyle at first glance. Powerful styling elements such as the new bumper and the standard-fit diamond radiator grille, lend the two-door C-Class models an individual character. The standard-fit LED High Performance headlamps are now standard and in their new design they have an especially distinctive appearance. Due to the autonomous design with the dynamic details and standard-fit two-pipe exhaust system (petrol engines) the rear view appears broad and agile.

2. AMG Line: Sporty design features heightened

The AMG Line exterior includes, for example, the diamond radiator grille with pins in chrome plus an AMG-specific front apron with new geometry, sporty air intakes and its chromed trim element. The exterior with the Night Package, available for the cabriolet for the first time, sports an even more athletic look with its black design features. A particular highlight both day and night are the redesigned, more accentuated all-LED rear lamps.

3. Digital cockpit and lounge ambiance

The sporty interior with its autonomous integral-look seats is characterised by further-enhanced perceived quality and flowing shapes and the facelift takes it into the digital era. The centre console is characterised by an elegant flowing trim element – optionally with new materials: open-pore brown walnut or open-pore anthracite oak.

The C-Class has a new display concept which includes an optional, fully-digital instrument cluster. The optional head-up display is now adjustable over an even wider range. The KEYLESS-GO starting function is standard. The start/stop button comes in a new turbine-look design. The vehicle key also features a new design.

4. Future-oriented assistance systems

The new C-Class Coupé and Cabriolet features the latest Mercedes-Benz driving assistance systems offering the driver cooperative support, and therefore provides a higher level of active safety than its predecessor. The C-Class is able to drive semi-autonomously in certain situations. The C-Class also uses map and navigation data for assistance functions. For example, Active Distance Control DISTRONIC as part of the Driving Assistance Package is able to give the driver map-based support in numerous situations, and predicatively adjust the speed. Other new developments include intuitively understandable Active Lane Change Assist and Active Emergency Stop Assist as new functions of Active Steering Assist.

5. MULTIBEAM LED headlamps

MULTIBEAM LED headlamps are new and available on request in the Coupé and Cabriolet. Each headlamp incorporates 84 individually controllable LEDs. These allow extremely quick and precise, electronically controlled adjustment of the headlamps to suit the current traffic situation. In high-beam mode, Adaptive Highbeam Assist Plus enables continuous long-range illumination of the road ahead without dazzling oncoming traffic. When no other road user is detected, the road ahead is straight and the vehicle speed is above 40 km/h, ULTRA RANGE high beam is switched on automatically. When there are oncoming vehicles or vehicles ahead, the LEDs of the main beam modules are partially switched off, masking out a U-shaped area of the light beam.
