Athletic and sporty, the vivid, sensual design of the new C-Class Coupé cuts a fine figure on the road and embodies modern luxury. At the same time, its interior raises elegance and style to a sporty level. A dynamically configured chassis, with optional air suspension, forms the basis for a high level of suspension comfort, low road roar and tyre vibration, agile handling, and driving pleasure. Lightweight construction to reduce weight, excellent aerodynamics and high-performance, efficient engines likewise play their part. New assistance systems provide safety of the very highest calibre. The new C‑Class Coupé can be ordered now at prices starting from €35,581 (including 19% VAT). The first models will reach dealerships in December 2015.
As the sportiest variant of the C-Class, the Coupé displays its driving enjoyment-oriented character in an emotive and at the same time formally distinct design. A sportily striking front section featuring diamond radiator grille and long bonnet gives way to a low greenhouse whose lines flow into a bold and powerful-looking rear end. A high beltline and frameless doors with free-standing exterior mirrors underscore the sporty character. As does the suspension, which is 15 millimeters lower than that of the Saloon and features 17-inch tyres as standard.
Inside the car, driver and passengers enjoy an ambience that leans toward the interior of the C-Class Saloon yet raises it to a new, sporty level. The choice of materials and the finish have a hand-crafted feel with high-class appeal and deliver a new take on modern luxury: sportiness without compromising on comfort and exquisite style.
The suspension: sportily agile and comfortable

Its electronically controlled, continuously adjustable damping on the front and rear axle ensures outstanding road roar and tyre vibration characteristics in every situation and gives the driver the option of selecting the desired driving style: sporty, comfortable or consumption-optimized.
