With the arrival of the brand new 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe on our lot here at Loeber Motors this spring, many people have been wondering if they should purchase the Coupe or the Sedan model. We do not want to tell you that your are overthinking things here, because both vehicles are fantastic, but in the end there are only a few major factors that you will need to consider with the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe vs C-Class Sedan comparison.

Sportiness? Functionality? Or Both?

This is really the main question that you need to answer when you are trying to decide between the 2017 C-Class Coupe and the C-Class Sedan. Yes, both vehicles are quite sporty, but even Mercedes-Benz has touted the new C-Class Coupe as the “sportiest variant of the C-Class…” This is reflected both inside and outside of the vehicle, which have both seen some significant improvements from the previous model. One of the biggest differences between the Coupe and the Sedan is the dropping line at the rear of each vehicle, which reaches further past the rear wheel arch in the Coupe than it does in the sedan.

While the dropping line is further back and the proportions of the 2017 C-Class Coupe have been increased, this has all been done to increase the space for the front passengers. It allows for the specifically designed sport seats to be equipped, but all of this sacrifices the space in the rear. If you are someone who will constantly be needing to utilize the rear seats for passengers who you want to keep somewhat comfortable, the Sedan may be the better option.

Similar Powertrains, Technology and Safety Features

The size differences will be the biggest difference when you are trying to decide between the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe and C-Class Sedan. Other than that, these vehicles actually have quite a bit in common. This includes the 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder that comes standard on each model. It produces 241-hp and also achieves some impressive fuel efficiency figures in each. If you are looking for something with a bit more power, the AMG variants of the C-Class, including the 2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 Cabriolet might have what you are looking for.
