The C-Class Coupé: Pure fun at the wheel with the perfect coupé proportions
May 17, 2011
The Mercedes-Benz management team on the C-Class Coupé: "A sporty way to enter the world of the Mercedes-Benz coupé"

"The new generation of C-Class has been very well received by the market. Now we are going one better: the new coupé completes the best-selling model series from Mercedes-Benz and makes the brand even more interesting to new buyers."
Dr Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars

"Pure fun at the wheel combined with exemplary efficiency – from a technical perspective, this represents the quintessence of the new coupé. While retaining virtually identical performance, in the space of just 20 years we have halved consumption and drastically improved comfort, safety and emission characteristics at the same time. And we are certainly keeping up this speed: we are inventing the car for the second time."
Dr Thomas Weber, Member of the Daimler Board of Management responsible for Group Research and Head of Development, Mercedes-Benz Cars

"In a new step for our company we are now building four models – the C-Class Coupé alongside the Saloon and Estate versions and the GLK – on a single production line at our plant in Bremen, whilst still achieving maximum quality. This gives us the flexibility to respond to changes in the market quickly and efficiently. It is only thanks to the motivation and flexibility of our employees that we can do this with confidence. Some of our competitors envy us for this ‘Daimler spirit’."
Dr Wolfgang Bernhard, Member of the Daimler Board of Management responsible for Production and Purchasing, Mercedes-Benz Cars

"By extending the C-Class portfolio, we are consciously targeting new customers. The new model is youthful, stylish and dynamic. What we are offering is an exceptionally sporty way to enter the world of the Mercedes-Benz coupé."
Dr Joachim Schmidt, Member of Mercedes-Benz Cars Management responsible for Sales and Marketing

"Youthful, sporty dynamism in the classic coupé form: the C-Class Coupé also sets the pace in its segment when it comes to design. This is particularly apparent in the interior: fine materials displaying painstaking attention to detail and the generous use of trim add an exclamation mark."
Professor Gorden Wagener, Head of Design, Mercedes-Benz Cars
