Mercedes-Benz USA is now taking orders for the 2017 C-Class Coupe which kicks off at $43,575.
The base version comes as standard with a rear-wheel-drive layout, so you’ll have to fork out an extra $2,000 for the all-wheel-drive 4MATIC setup. On the inside you get plenty of kit, such as a seven-inch screen, aluminum trim, Bluetooth, HD radio, eight-way power seats, and a forward collision alert system which also boasts automatic braking.
Motivation is provided by a turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that pushes out 241 horsepower (180 kilowatts) and 273 pound-feet (370 newton meters) of torque delivered to the 18-inch wheels through a seven-speed automatic transmission.
If the base version doesn’t have the kit you are looking for, perhaps the optional Premium 1 package worth $2,300 will do the trick. It adds keyless entry (with push-button start), a 590-watt, 13-speaker Burmester audio system, and a six-month SiriusXM subscription.
The more expensive Premium 2 package (at $4,500) has all the goodies of the Premium 1 and adds a blind spot monitoring system, backup camera, and free map updates for three years. This package also increases the size of the infotainment screen to 8.4 inches and brings along navigation support and a touchpad. Mercedes will also throw in power-folding mirrors, illuminated door sills with “AMG” lettering, ambient lighting, and power-closing trunk by waving your foot underneath the rear bumper.
Mercedes also has an optional Premium 3 package (at $7,400) which adds a plethora of safety and assistance systems. These include lane-keeping assist, pedestrian detection, automatic high-beams, adaptive cruise control, and traffic-sign recognition. You also get LED headlights, rear cross-traffic alert, Brake Assist Plus, and on the inside there’s a perfume atomizer working together with the air conditioning system.
Regardless of the package you go for, heated front seats are an extra $580, while leather upholstery is going to set you back an additional $1,620. Available only with the leather upholstery, ventilated seats cost $1,030. A smoother ride regardless of the road surface is ensured by ticking the Airmatic suspension box which is a standalone option worth $1,190.
An optional equipment we highly recommend you avoid is the illuminated Mercedes-Benz logo that adds $550 to the final bill and will make the car look tacky. The Sport Package ($1,675) brings a stiffer suspension, cross-drilled front brake rotors, summer tires (instead of all-season), a more aggressive body kit, and an aluminum pedal set. Black exterior trim and wheels are available with the Night Package that costs $300.
Lastly, the 2017 C300 Coupe can be equipped with optional rear-seat side airbags for $670, a head-up display for $990, and a Parking Assist Package ($1,290). The latter bundles 360-degree cameras with front and rear parking sensors, along with automatic parallel parking.
If you would rather have something with more punch, wait until Mercedes USA will release pricing details for the C43 and C63 dynamic duo.
