2012 Mercedes-Benz C Class Styling

Styling
With a new coupe joining the C Class for the 2012 model year, along with a freshly updated sedan, there's a lot of style to love in Mercedes' entry-level model.

The sedan gets a revised exterior, with a more prominent grille to match other new Mercedes models, while the all-new Coupe draws on its four-door sibling's cues to deliver a car that's unmistakably a Mercedes-Benz, but at the same time, a bit sportier and sexier than the sedan.

Both models share a dramatic front end, combining sharp angles with graceful curves and high-tech elements like LED daytime running lights. Inside, purposeful ergonomics meld with modern Mercedes styling in varying degrees of sport and luxury, depending on the trim line and body style. The Coupe draws more race-inspired detail in its upholstery and steering wheel, while the sedan edges toward the more luxurious end, with refined materials and premium finishes at the forefront--though buyers can configure a very sporty-looking sedan as well.

With both coupe and sedan models to choose from, wearing fresh new faces, the 2012 Mercedes-Benz C Class's dramatic exterior and modern interior will find many fans.

The C63 AMG Coupe, sitting at the zenith of the C Class range, offers much more dramatic exterior and interior styling, with wider fender arches, AMG badges and unique interior elements, and twin chrome tailpipes emitting the raspy sound of the potent 6.2-liter V-8 engine.
