2017 Mercedes C-Class is a Spacious Sedan Set for December Launch

2017 Mercedes C-Class Coupe

Creating a car which offers enough space for at least four people, yet compact enough for zippy driving is the primary objective of most manufacturers.

The 2017 Mercedes C-Class aims to satisfy every strata of the buyer community, with a new vivid and sensual design, according to the official statement from the company.

Mercedes is a luxury car manufacturer, a fact known across the globe. But, it is the elite perspective they have created throughout the decades that deter them from appealing to the masses. People have a notion that their cars offer the best in luxury class, but are not designed to be sporty. The new C-class aims to change this notion forever.

The manufacturer in a statement confirmed it is going to be a vehicle that ideally balances the best of modern luxury combined with an agile sportiness. In order to support their claim, the car is made at least 60 millimeters longer than its previous models. The measurement covers the area between the axle and the firewall. For offering the promised luxurious ride, the vehicle’s suspension is much lower than the saloon, measured at 15 millimeters.

A wide range of modifications are made in the interiors of the vehicle. Brand new upholstery is one of the significant changes in this model, which offers unique color combinations. One of them is saddle brown combined with porcelain, while another is turquoise coupled with nut brown and black. The steering wheel features multiple functions and has AMG sports pedals for superior control at high speeds.

Apart from the interiors and the suspension, the 2017 Mercedes C-Class is equipped with 17-inch wheels which are tuned to be sporty. The manufacturer says the overall length and breadth of the vehicle has been increased so that it offers additional shoulder and elbow room. The increased size makes it easier for the front and rear seat passengers to sit conveniently for long rides. The length is increased by at least 95 millimeters, while the width in the new model is 40 millimeters more than the earlier edition.

The C-Class 2017 edition also promises better road dynamics while keeping road noise at minimal levels. The steel suspension is fully customizable. The basic model is integrated into the vehicle, but buyers can go for a sports or a stability variant based on their individual preference. The Mercedes C-Class 2017 will be available in four variants with the gas engine and two with the diesel engines when it gets launched.

2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe Looks as Stunning as Big Brother S-Class

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe should make its way to the Frankfurt Moto Show scheduled for September.

But, before the official release at the Moto Show, the company has issued a press release, showing the 2017 C-Class coupe in its full glory. Like the C-Class sedan previously, the coupe looks like a lot like its bigger brother, the S-Class coupe.

Both inside and out, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class coupe feels and looks like a baby brother of the S-Class; this was the goal of the Bavarian company, when the redesign of the C-Class was taken up. The new C-class coupe is in essence a scaled-down version of the S-Class coupe with many of the existing styling lines.

The front of the exterior looks exactly like the C-class sedan, but once you move towards the back, the removal of the rear doors makes the C-Class coupe an imitation of the S-Class. And the result is a unique and interesting look. For the 2017 C-Class coupe, Mercedes continues the strategy of mixing thrilling design, modern luxury and agile sportiness into a product that offers remarkable driving experience. The C-class Coupe is sporty, but also sensual.

Mercedes has reduced the weight of the construction, which contributes to better aerodynamics. The company also offers air suspension as an optional choice for buyers. Some of the elements that resemble the S-Class are the rear spoiler, the horizontal taillights and the strong shoulder line giving the coupe an aggressive slope on the top.

Under the hood, the coupe has the same engine as the sedan version of the 2017 C-Class, which is a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine producing 241hp. The more potent versions such as the C63 AMG, C450 AMG Sport and the C400 are yet to be announced.

The best part about the 2017 C-Class coupe is the addition of technology goodies. The coupe gets almost all the features like the sedan, including the 360-degree system of the camera, air conditioning linked with the navigation system and a bevy of electronic features that make the 2017 C-Class coupe almost a self-driving car. Some of the standard features include Attention Assist monitors, Collision prevention assist system and adaptive brake assistance system. The adaptive cruise control is also part of the standard system goodies.

Just like the sedan version of the 2017 C-Class, the coupe features a COMAND system, with the display screen positioned on the top of the dashboard. Mercedes adds the mbrace2 UI to the coupe, and lots of applications that are smartphone-friendly for better connectivity.
