2012 C-Class Coupe Overview
As the latest expression of our 125 years of innovation, the all-new 2012 C-Class Coupe reflects our ongoing commitment to reinventing the automobile -- 125 years after we unveiled the first one. And in the process, we're also reinventing how you enjoy the road.
New for 2012
In honor of the 125th anniversary of the automobile, we're unveiling yet another all-new member of the Mercedes-Benz family. Hitting showrooms in the U.S. this fall, the 2012 C-Class Coupe combines an aggressive design with a pulse-quickening ride and sport-oriented luxury - marking yet another milestone in a proud legacy of Mercedes-Benz coupes.
At curbside, the 2012 C-Class Coupe seduces with its windswept profile, compact proportions and powerful lines. While the C-Class Coupe pedigree is unmistakable in the design, this red-blooded coupe stands on its own, with chiseled sport body styling from fender to fender and standard LED daytime running lamps underneath a menacing front grille with integrated three-pointed star.
Under the hood sits your choice of a 302-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 or a 201-horsepower 1.8-liter turbocharged inline-four engine - both featuring direct-injection technology that helps deliver coupe-worthy performance with remarkable fuel economy. Output is channeled through the sophisticated 7G-TRONIC 7-speed automatic transmission, which adapts to individual driving styles for smooth and efficient power delivery. Responsive handling comes courtesy of a standard AGILITY CONTROL® suspension that automatically adjusts damping to help improve stability when cornering at speed or reacting quickly to the unexpected.
Open the door of the all-new 2012 C-Class Coupe and you'll find a meticulously crafted cockpit designed for driving enjoyment. Four, sculpted sport seats with integrated headrests promise to cradle you through turns, while a three-spoke sport steering wheel with shift paddles and a chromed central spoke awaits your commands. Beneath the standard panorama sunroof lie large swaths of brushed aluminum, Burl Walnut wood or optional Ash Olive Matte wood trim, taking a refined spin on performance. And a new infotainment system with standard, 5.8-inch color LCD display, intuitive central controller, Bluetooth® audio streaming and USB connectivity will make time behind the wheel even more rewarding -- especially with the addition of optional hard-drive navigation, SIRIUS Satellite Radio and harman/kardon® Logic 7® surround-sound system.
