The 2012 Mercedes C-Class Coupe

In honor of the 125th anniversary of the automobile, Mercedes-Benz unveied yet another all-new member of the family. 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 C-Class seduces with its windswept profile, compact proportions and powerful lines. While the C-Class 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 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 surround-sound system.

The C-Class Coupe delivers on the safety front as well, with nine airbags as standard -- including front, side and pelvic airbags for driver and front passenger, a driver's-side kneebag, and headbags. In addition, driving assistance systems ranging from standard ATTENTION ASSIST driver-drowsiness detection to optional Lane Keeping Assist offer a comprehensive level of driver support and protection.

As the latest expression of 125 years of innovation, the C-Class Coupe reflects Mercedes-Benz ongoing commitment to reinventing the automobile. And in the process, they're also reinventing how you enjoy the road.
