The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is one of the most popular luxury cars on the road, so when it gets a redesign, there is no shortage of anticipation as it nears its release. While the new C-Class Coupe isn’t expected to arrive at dealerships until spring of 2016, Mercedes-Benz has given us a lot of insight into what the new coupe will provide. While the list of features and amenities is a lengthy one, we’ve narrowed it down to 5 things to help you prepare for the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe.
More spacious than ever before
For 2017, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe’s wheelbase is 3.1 inches longer while the exterior grows 3.7 inches longer and 1.6 inches wider. That size translates to more interior room, creating more head, leg, elbow space for drivers and passengers. The roomy interior only enhances the luxurious persona of the C-Class interior.
Standard Panorama Sunroof
While there is no C-Class cabriolet (yet), the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe features a standard Panorama Sunroof that provides a great open air experience while also allowing the cabin to be filled with plenty of natural light.
Several semi-autonomous features
Mercedes-Benz has been at the forefront of vehicle safety for years. The technology they’ve developed is prevalent in the 2017 C-Class Coupe, with standard features like ATTENTION ASSIST, Active Lane Keeping Assist and available ones like Active Park Assist. Many of these semi-autonomous safety features are available as part of the Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive suite.
New infotainment system
New animations and visual effects fill the C-Class Coupe’s infotainment system. The crisp, modern display not only looks great, but is also intuitively navigated by both drivers and passengers. Navigation is presented interactively, with Google Maps visualized on the center display.
The 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe features the latest rendition of the Frontbass system. This unique setup creates a resonance chamber for the bass speakers using the space within the vehicle’s body structure. The result is truly a delight for the ears.
These 5 features are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the next-generation C-Class Coupe. We expect shipments to begin sometime in the spring, so we should have many in stock in time for summer.
