Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe price premium

Sleeker looking two-door versions of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class have landed in Australia, but they’ll cost you more.

Fewer doors, higher price: It’s a familiar formula but one that’s long worked for lovers of coupes. And the latest two-door Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe is no different.

The three-model range – Mercedes-Benz C200, C250d and C300 – is about $5000 more than the equivalent C-Class sedan. There is also a high performance AMG model, the Mercedes-AMG C63, a hefty $162,400 twin-turbo V8 proposition, for those who dare.

All come with a “diamond grille”, which has a three-dimension collection of chrome-finished blobs to distinguish the Coupe from the four-door versions. Mercedes-Benz has also fitted a slightly firmer suspension setup that is aimed at sharpening the car’s cornering responses.

While it shares its basic underpinnings with the popular C-Class sedan – it’s the same length and width - the C Coupe is available only with a choice of four engines.

Kicking off the range is the C200, from $65,900. The 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine makes 135kW and 300Nm. It also comes generously appointed with 18-inch wheels as part of the AMG body styling kit, digital radio tuning, LED headlights, electric front seats, satellite-navigation, four cameras (for a virtual overhead view when parking), fake leather trim as well as active safety features such as blind spot warning and partial auto emergency braking.

The C250d gets a 2.1-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel with 150kW and 500Nm. It’s $74,900 and adds leather trim, tinted windows, smart key entry (to allow you to open the doors without pressing a button) and 19-inch wheels, as well as a radar sensor that allows active cruise control (to maintain a set distance to the car in front) and full emergency braking at speeds up to 200km/h.

The C300 jumps to $83,400 but brings a 13-speaker Burmester sound system and Comand infotainment controller.

All come with an auto transmission; a seven-speed unit in the C200 and C300 and a nine-speeder in the C250d.

The C Coupe is available with a range of options, including a Vision package which pairs active headlights (they turn around corners), a head-up display and panoramic sunroof for $4490.

Adjustable air suspension, called Airmatic, is $2990, while the Burmester sound system can also be optioned on the C200 and C250d for $2990.
