Mercedes updates two-door and drop-top C-Class, coming July

Written by: Neil

The first official images of Mercedes’ facelifted C-Class Coupe and Cabriolet have emerged online, and boy, does it look pretty?!

Merc has only just revealed the updated version of the standard C-Class saloon and estate at the Geneva Motor Show and has wasted no time in pushing out the two-door and drop-top variants, which will be available to order in April with the first models reaching owners from July.

As you’d expect, the C-Class Coupe and Cabriolet have been subject to the same design and engine tweaks as the conventional model, with an upgraded cabin featuring new digital dials. It will be offered with extra kit, new driver assistance systems and in two new colours: mojave silver and graphite grey.

Under the bonnet, buyers will be able to choose from the entry-level C 200, which comes with a 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine, as well as the AMG C 43 or the popular C 220 d diesel, both of which have received a 23bhp upgrade. There’s no mention of the almost inevitable AMG 63 version yet but don’t worry, they’re working on it…

The cabin features a digital instrument display with a 12.3-inch screen replacing standard analogue dials and merging with the 10.25-inch central screen, while basic models get a seven-inch infotainment display.

As with the E-Class, touch sensitive buttons now adorn the updated C-Class’ steering wheel, allowing the driver to use smartphone-style swipes to control the car’s functions and trip computer.

Price and spec won’t be confirmed until April when the order book opens, but expect a minimum list price in excess of £32,000.

Stephen Hasley, brand manager at Petrol News, comments: “The two-door and drop-top C-Class were already hugely desirable automobiles, but the refresh treatment has boosted their ‘want factor’ ten fold.”
