Mercedes-Benz is adding a Coupé to its C-Class family, which is slated to arrive in December 2015.
Billed as being athletic and sporty, the vivid, the company claims that the sensual design of the new Coupé cuts a fine figure on the road and embodies modern luxury.
At the same time, Mercedes-Benz said that the new Coupé’s 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 tire vibration, agile handling, and driving pleasure. Lightweight construction to reduce weight, excellent aerodynamics and high-performance yet efficient engines likewise contribute to this, the company said.
“Our new C-Class Coupé continues the philosophy of our exciting coupés. It combines thrilling design with agile sportiness and modern luxury. The C-Class Coupé therefore clearly pledges itself to stylish driving enjoyment,” said Prof. Dr. Thomas Weber, member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and responsible for Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development.
Mercedes-Benz claims that 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.
The new Coupé is 60 millimetres longer than its predecessor between the firewall and front axle alone. Clean lines and sensually arranged surfaces structure the side sections into vivid light and shadow effects.
One particular highlight is the long drawn-out dropping line typical of a coupé. In contrast to the C-Class Saloon, the dropping line extends further past the rear wheel arch. To underscore the Coupé’s sporty disposition, the suspension is 15 millimetres lower than that of the Saloon, making it a very sporty proposition when combined with the standard 17-inch tires.
