Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe – Interior
The dashboard of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe has a simple T-shaped design that is highlighted by the three central air conditioning vents and the ‘waterfall-like’ console. Since there is no floor-mounted shift lever, the space has been taken up by a large storage section with a lid.
In this 2021 facelifted Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe range, both variants of the C200 and C300 see the latest 12.3-inch fully digital driver’s instrument cluster paired with the 10.25-inch central infotainment touchscreen display. Being the AMG Line, both the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe C200 and C300 variants gets the dashboard and upper sections of the door panels lined with Artico material (simulated leather) and contrasting double stitching.
The central trim finisher, which also removed the analogue clock in the facelift timing, is a slab of full anthracite open-pore oak wood trim. The classic and understated wood trim also lines the door panels. The steering wheel is an AMG sports steering wheel wrapped with Nappa leather, flattened bottom section and also feature the new touch-control panel and shift paddles finished in exquisite satin silver.
The driver’s instrument cluster in the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe C200 and C300 is the fully digital display measuring 12.3 inches. The instrument display is highly customizable, with three different themes, various driving information and other content.
Changing and scrolling through the myriad of information is done via the capacitive touch-sensitive controllers on the nice-to-hold AMG sports steering wheel. It is very intuitive after a few minutes behind the wheel.
Space and practicality
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe offers lots of headroom and legroom for the front occupants thanks to its high roofline. The rear meanwhile seats two and also have respectable space and properly sized seats. Similar to the C-Class sedan, the front armrest opens with a centrally split lid, allowing ease of use by both occupants.
The large storage space with two cupholders and room for smartphones see no changes, but the C300 gets its wireless smartphone charger placed in there. The rear seat, for two, doesn’t have an armrest but there is a shallow storage compartment with two cupholders. As such, squeezing a third person in the centre is not possible. Added practicality in the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe is the 40-20-20 split-folding rear seats. Boot space is rated at 335 litres.
