Your heart starts beating faster as your fingertips grace the top of the steering wheel. Your pulse gets stronger as the ignition button clicks. You can’t keep a stern face anymore as you put the car in gear. You can’t help but turn around to stare at it as you walk up your driveway after an exhilarating drive home. The new Mercedes-Benz C-Class is the newest member of the Mercedes-Benz family and boy does it ever cause the hair on your arms to stand on end.Looks that captivate the mind with performance that’s guaranteed to to thrill: the all-new 2017 C-Class Coupe harmonizes ultra-sleek design with sensible sportiness in a vehicle far ahead of other vehicles in its class. It sets new standards with an alluring exterior and impressive interior that is crafted to stimulate all seven senses. Its striking design echoes the agile driving dynamics made possible by the advanced light-alloy construction and lowered sport suspension. Carve corners in Sport Mode or commute carefree with DYNAMIC SELECT, which allows you to personalize the sport suspension according to your style.The C-Class Coupe is further complemented by available advanced technologies like DISTRONIC PLUS and Steering Assist, which continue to reflect Mercedes-Benz as a true icon of modern innovation. Inside, the C-Class Coupe has debonair details designed with the driver in mind. The COMAND display and KEYLESS START seamlessly integrate innovation to every part of your life. Refined details such as masterfully crafted sport seats and a panorama sunroof give it an ambience of pure sophistication. This beautiful and sensual shape undergoes a character transformation in AMG trim. The whopper from Affalterbach is wider by 2.5 inches up front and 2.6 in the rear. Both the front and rear fenders are new and the effect is dramatic. Its proportions move this car close to the S-class coupe, distancing it from the base model far more than any of its competitors.As with the C-class sedan, the coupe lineup begins with the C300, fitted with a 241-hp, 2.0-liter turbo four. Rear-wheel drive is standard; four-wheel drive is an option. The next step up is the C450 AMG Sport coupe, powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 rated at 362 horsepower. Then there’s AMG’s twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 that produces 469 horses in the C63 and 503 in the C63 S. This is essentially the same engine that powers the AMG GT and successor to the legendary 6.2, which made its final appearance in the last-gen C-class coupe. The all-new 2017 C-Class Coupe arrives in spring 2016. Be ready.
