Mercedes-Benz C300 Coupe going to be launch ahead of the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, where the two-door version of the C-Class sedan will make its official in the flesh sheet metal debut this September.
The new Mercedes-Benz C300 Coupe is longer, lower, wider and has a longer wheelbase than the outgoing model it replaces, which was last sold here as a 2014 model. Employing more high-strength steel and alloys, the structure also is more rigid. That provides a rock-solid foundation for the standard multi link Sport Suspension. which is tauter and 0.6-inch lower than the one in its 4-door sibling, as well as the optional Aromatic suspension that features self-levelling and offers five different settings using the Dynamic Select Switch.
Exterior of Mercedes-Benz C300 Coupe
The Mercedes-Benz C300 Coupe dimensions give the front end a long, sleek appearance with 2.4 more inches between the firewall and front axle compared with its predecessor. While retaining plenty of fundamental C-Class visuals, the new Mercedes-Benz C300 Coupe cranks up the edge with bolder front/rear fascia treatments, body contours and sweeping pillar less roof set of with up scale touches like LED headlamps and a Panorama Sunroof. The optional Sport Appearance Package brings AMG-styled bumper/side-sill elements, a unique grille treatment and 18-inch AMG light-alloy wheels.
Interior of Mercedes-Benz C300 Coupe
Inside, the Mercedes-Benz C300 Coupe design is nearly identical to the sedan, which isn’t a bad thing considering the well-appointed, techy and luxurious interior of the four-door. The coupe includes sport seats built specifically for the coupe, and a panoramic sunroof is standard. The aforementioned Sport Appearance Package adds a flat-bottom steering wheel and AMG pedals to the inside.
Like the sedan, the coupe sees increased dimensions compared with the previous generation, and that means more shoulder, elbow and headroom in all seats, according to Mercedes. The coupe has a 3.1-inch-longer wheelbase and is 3.7 inches longer and 1.6 inches wider; that hollows out more interior space for occupants. Unique upholstery colour combinations include saddle brown, porcelain and nut brown/black with turquoise stitching.
The back seat has room for two passengers, and while the wide-angle-lens photos provided make the back seat look roomy, we won’t have specifications until the car debuts and Mercedes unleashes a complete list of dimensions.
Under the hood of the Mercedes-Benz C300 Coupe is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 241 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. While this is not an overly powerful engine, it should deliver great fuel economy and a respectable 0-to-60 mph time of slightly more than six seconds. The 2017 C300 will be available with rear- or all-wheel drive.
There are no pricing details available just yet, but look for the C300 Coupe to arrive at a price that is slightly higher than the C300 Sedan’s $38,400 (Roughly in INR 25,01,009)base price. This new two-door C0 Class will arrive in dealers in the early 2016.
