The new C-Class Coupe and Cabriolet to arrive in Lebanon in Q3 this year

The two-door C-Class models are now even

  • New four-cylinder engines with increased performance for sporty driving pleasure with high efficiency
  • Advancement of the sporty design in particular at the front and tail end, new light-alloy wheels, new colours
  • Now standard-fit LED High Performance headlamps with new design or optional MULTIBEAM LED headlamps with ULTRA RANGE Highbeam
  • Enhanced interior with digital cockpit (31.2 cm/12.3 inches), larger media display (26 cm/10.25 inches), new multifunction steering wheel with touch-control buttons
  • Additional sound system with nine loudspeakers and an output of 225 W as a new optional extra between the standard sound system and the Burmester® surround sound system
  • Individually configurable driving experience with new DYNAMIC BODY CONTROL suspension including damping characteristics
  • Future-oriented driving assistance systems from Mercedes-Benz with S-Class functions and cooperative driver support

Just a few weeks after the world premiere of the sedan, the two-door version of the C-Class proves it is also enjoying its new top form with the coupé and cabriolet. Sportiness and driving pleasure have been enhanced with a sharper design, digital cockpit and DYNAMIC BODY CONTROL suspension. The new four-cylinder engines with increased performance in the C 200 & C 300 as well as the Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC now with 287 kW (390 hp) underscore the dynamic nature of this highly emotive appealing C-Class representative. The latest C-Class models will be available in Lebanon in Q3 2018.

Mercedes-AMG: More performance for the C 43 4MATIC Coupé and Cabriolet

With a multitude of carefully coordinated measures, the AMG developers have enhanced the two-door performance models dynamics even further. The 3.0-litre V6 engine now develops 287 kW (390 hp), i.e. 17 kW (23 hp) more than before. The peak torque of 520 Nm is available in a wide engine speed range from 2500 to 5000 rpm. The new C 43 4MATIC Coupé accelerates from a standstill to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds, and the Cabriolet in 4.8 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h.

The exterior of the C 43 4MATIC Coupe and Cabriolet is considerably more expressive, strongly identifying the new models as members of the family. New distinguishing features include the AMG radiator grille with twin louvre in matt iridium silver and the powerfully sculpted front apron with additional flics.

The interior sporty materials such as leather, DINAMICA microfibre and aluminium in a high-quality finish continue the theme of the expressive exterior in the interior, including galvanised steering wheel gearshift paddles to support a sporty driving style.

4MATIC all-wheel drive: Traction even in difficult road conditions

The all-wheel drive is standard equipment for the Mercedes-AMG C 43 and features rear-biased torque distribution with a front/rear axle split of 31 to 69%.

Individual driving experience thanks to DYNAMIC BODY CONTROL

The optional DYNAMIC BODY CONTROL suspension is equipped with continuous adjustable damping for the front and rear axle. The stepless system controls the damping characteristics individually for each wheel as it interacts with the engine, transmission and steering properties – to suit the driving situation, speed and condition of the road surface.

The individual suspension setup can be determined in three stages via the DYNAMIC SELECT switch: the damping characteristics are tuned more tautly in the two stages "Sport" and "Sport+". The "Comfort" mode is more comfortably tuned, unevenness is levelled out better while road roar and tyre vibration characteristics are tangibly improved.

More dynamic design and LED High Performance headlamps as standard

The new-look C-Class combines emotionality with intelligence. The vehicle's appearance is defined in particular by its front and tail end and the design of the headlamps and tail lights.

The front design exudes sportiness and lifestyle at first glance with powerful styling elements such as the new bumper and the standard-fit diamond radiator grille. For the first time in this model series, MULTIBEAM LED headlamps with ULTRA RANGE high beam are optionally available.

Due to the autonomous design with the dynamic details and standard-fit two-pipe exhaust system the rear view appears broad and agile. A particular highlight both day and night are the revised, more accentuated all-LED rear lamps.

The sporty design features are heightened with the AMG Line. For example, the AMG Line exterior includes the diamond radiator grille with pins in chrome plus an AMG-specific front apron with new geometry, sporty air intakes and its chromed trim element. The exterior with the Night Package, available for the cabriolet for the first time, sports an even more athletic look with its black design features.

Digital cockpit and lounge ambience

The sporty interior with its autonomous integral-look seats is characterised by further-enhanced perceived quality and flowing shapes taking it into the digital era.

The centre console is characterised by an elegant flowing trim element - optionally with new materials: open-pore brown walnut or open-pore anthracite oak.

The KEYLESS-GO starting function is standard. The start/stop button comes in a new turbine-look design.

An eye on the future: fully digital instrument display available as an option

The C-Class has a new display concept which includes an optional, fully-digital instrument cluster with the three visually distinguishable styles "Classic", "Sport" and "Progressive".

The C-Class also has touch-sensitive controls in the steering wheel. They respond to swiping motions like the screen of a smartphone enabling the driver to control the functions of the instrument cluster and of the entire infotainment system without having to take their hands off the steering wheel. New features include the operation of DISTRONIC and cruise control with controls directly on the steering wheel and the LINGUATRONIC voice control.

Future-oriented assistance systems on a par with the S-Class

The new C-Class features the latest Mercedes-Benz driving assistance systems offering the driver cooperative support and providing a higher level of active safety than its predecessor. The C-Class is able to drive semi-autonomously in certain situations by keeping a close eye on the traffic situation with improved camera and radar systems which allow it to see up to 500 m ahead.

The C-Class also uses map and navigation data for assistance functions. For example, Active Distance Control DISTRONIC as part of the Driving Assistance Package is able to give the driver map-based support in numerous situations, and predictively adjust the speed e.g. when approaching bends, junctions or roundabouts. Other new developments include Active Emergency Stop Assist as new functions of Active Steering Assist.

The new C-Class comes with extended Active Brake Assist as an optional extra, which depending on the situation can help to mitigate the consequences of rear-end collisions.

MULTIBEAM LED headlamps: Optimum visibility in all conditions

MULTIBEAM LED headlamps are new and available on request in the coupé and cabriolet. Each headlamp incorporates 84 individually controllable LEDs. These allow extremely quick and precise, electronically controlled adjustment of the headlamps to suit the current traffic situation.

ENERGIZING comfort control: wellness at the press of a button

ENERGIZING comfort control (optional) links various comfort systems in the vehicle. It systematically uses the functions of the air conditioning system (including fragrancing) and the seats (ventilation) as well as lighting and musical moods, and enables a specific wellness set-up tailored to the mood and need of the customer. This has positive effects on wellbeing and driver performance.

The multimedia systems: Tailor-made information and music offerings

The C-Class comes as standard with the Audio 20 multimedia system featuring two USB ports, an SD card reader, Bluetooth connection and media interface.

The latest-generation COMAND Online available as optional equipment offers fast 3D hard-disc navigation and comprehensive information is displayed on the navigation map.
