The C-Class Coupé: Pure fun at the wheel with the perfect coupé proportions - IV


Stuttgart, Germany, May 17, 2011

The interior: Exclusive coupé lounge with sporty appeal

The C-Class Coupé is a fully fledged four-seater and is one of the most spacious models in its segment. For example, there is 1372 mm and 1278 mm of shoulder room in the front and rear respectively. In terms of elbow room, the dimensions are 1443 mm and 1335 mm. Another key figure of relevance to freedom of movement is the hip room between the front and rear seats of 789 mm.

All four seats feature sporty yet comfortable integral seats. At 273 mm, the C-Class Coupé offers the most scope for longitudinal seat adjustment in this market segment. The front seats come with electric height and backrest adjustment as standard. There is an optional memory package which includes electric adjustment with memory function for the front seats, front head restraints, steering column and exterior mirrors, as well as four-way lumbar support for the driver and front passenger. Heating and ventilation for the front seats are also available as optional extras (the latter when combined with leather upholstery).

Standard equipment for the coupé includes a mechanical entry and exit aid for the rear passengers also known as the EASY-ENTRY system. It is operated using a lever next to the head restraint, which initially tilts the seat backrest forwards. The seat can then be pushed forwards. The rear seat backrests have a 1/3 to 2/3 split-folding design and can be moved using the convenience feature in the luggage compartment (standard with the exception of the C 180 BlueEFFICIENCY). ISOFIX, the standardised attachment system for child seats, is included in the back as part of the standard specification. The boot capacity is 450 litres (according to the VDA measuring method).

The C-Class Coupé comes as standard with a three-spoke multifunction steering wheel with four buttons and a shift/selector lever handle, both in nappa leather. A three-spoke multifunction steering wheel with twelve buttons is offered as an optional extra, which is supplied with a high-resolution colour display (screen diagonal 114 mm) in the instrument cluster's speed display, as well as ATTENTION ASSIST. If the vehicle is equipped with an automatic transmission and the AMG Sports package or the Dynamic Handling package, the steering wheel is fitted with shift paddles. The electronic KEYLESS-GO access and drive authorisation system is available as an option.

As standard, the C-Class Coupé has the two-zone THERMATIC automatic climate control system combined with green heat-insulating glass. Available as an option are dark-tinted side and rear windows, plus a large, electrically operated panoramic sliding sunroof and auxiliary heater.
