Advantages and Benefits of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe

Another advantage of the C-Class Coupe is its luxurious and stylish interior. Flowing forms characterize the center console as well as the door and rear side paneling, which smoothly merge into one another to emphasize the coupe character. A seating system including integral sports seats designed specifically for the Coupe offers sporty comfort, while the standard automatic belt feeder offers additional convenience. Also, the unique interior of the new C-Class Coupe is emphasized by the special upholstery color combinations: saddle brown, porcelain and — in the Edition 1 — nut brown seats with black inserts and contrast turquoise topstitching.

Owners of the C-Class Coupe also benefit from a wealth of standard premium features. This includes LED headlights, PRESAFE®, Keyless-Start, Sport-tuned Suspension and a Panorama roof. The C-Class Coupe also offers many semi-autonomous driving features for improved safety and convenience. Attention Assist, with adjustable sensitivity, warns the driver of inattentiveness and drowsiness, Collision Prevention Assist features an acoustic warning for the driver at speeds above 4 mph, and Adaptive Brake Assist helps avoid collisions by boosting the braking effect in line with the current situation. When danger of a collision persists and the driver fails to respond, the system is able to carry out autonomous braking at speeds of up to 124 mph, thereby reducing the severity of collisions.
