Prices released for new C-Class models

May 29, 2018

The refreshed Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupé and Cabriolet are now on sale with prices starting from £37,620 for the entry-level C 200 AMG Line Coupé, while the C 200 AMG Line Cabriolet starts at £41,439.

Like the new C-Class Saloon and Estate, the Coupé and Cabriolet are now available with an optional 12.3-inch digital cockpit display – giving the interior a more modern and luxurious feel. Combined with a new range of engines, the Coupé and Cabriolet continue to bring a sporty edge to the C-Class range.

The C 200 features a 1.5-litre petrol engine with EQ Boost, available in either rear-wheel or – for the coupé only – 4MATIC all-wheel-drive which produces 184hp and 280Nm. EQ Boost uses a 48-volt onboard network with a belt-driven starter/alternator – the system adds 14hp to the car’s overall output. It can achieve up to 46.3mpg and emits 140g/km of CO2 on its standard 18-inch wheels (4MATIC: 42.8mpg and 150g/km; Cabriolet: 44.1mpg and 145g/km).

The C 220 d uses a new 2.0-litre diesel engine with an output of 194hp and 400Nm of torque, while emitting 121g/km of CO2 (depending on wheel size) and achieving up to 61.4mpg. The Cabriolet can achieve up to 58.9mpg and emits 126g/km.

The C 300 has a 2.0-litre petrol engine which generates 254hp and 370Nm of torque. It can travel from 0 to 62mph in six seconds and has a top speed of 155mph. CO2 emissions start at 147g/km and it can achieve up to 44.1mpg on the combined cycle. Available only in the Coupé – the C 300 Cabriolet will join the range later in the year.

The AMG C 43 4MATIC uses a 3.0-litre biturbo V6 petrol engine with an increased output of 390hp (+23) and 520Nm (+44). It can sprint from 0 to 62mph in just 4.7 seconds – 4.8 for the Cabriolet – and has an electronically limited top speed of 155mph. The Coupé can achieve up to 29.7mpg and emits 217g/km, while the Cabriolet delivers 29.1mpg and emits 223g/km.

The Cabriolet’s multi-layer soft-top comes in a choice of four colours: black, dark blue, brown and red. All are available as a no-cost option.

One highly-specified trim is available called AMG Line. Standard equipment includes a 10.25-inch media display, 18-inch alloy wheels, keyless start, Mirror package, LED high performance headlights, sports suspension and DAB radio. The Cabriolet adds airscarf and aircap, which work together to ensure top-down driving is possible all-year-round. Airscarf blows hot air onto the driver and front passenger’s neck, while Aircap means the air flows over the occupants – reducing wind noise and making the overall experience more enjoyable.

The AMG C 43 comes as standard with AMG performance exhaust system, 18-inch alloy wheels, AMG Ride Control sports suspension, AMG spoiler lip and ‘BITURBO 4MATIC’ lettering on front wings.

All models come with a 9G-Tronic Plus nine-speed automatic transmission as standard.

The optional Premium package (£2,795) adds a 12.3-inch cockpit display, ambient lighting, Comand Online, Midline sound system, LED Intelligent Light System and wireless charging.

The Premium Plus equipment line costs £4,995 (£3,595 for the Cabriolet) and includes the contents of the Premium pack. It also adds 360° camera, Burmester surround sound system, Keyless-Go Comfort package and a panoramic sunroof (Coupé only).

The optional Driving Assistance package costs £1,695 and comprises Active Blind Spot Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, BAS Plus with Cross-traffic Assist, Active Distronic Plus with Active Steering Assist and Stop&Go Pilot, Pre-Safe Brake with pedestrian detection and Pre-Safe Plus.

The Airmatic Dynamic Handling package costs £895 – not available on AMG C 43, which has air suspension as standard – and adds air suspension, enabling the driver to adapt the suspension set-up according to the road conditions.
