Car and Driver: 2017 Mercedes-Benz C300 Coupe Priced from $43,000

Pricing is out for the all-new 2017 Mercedes-Benz C300 coupe, and the entry-level C-class two-door starts at $43,575. One can, however, chop $500 off that price by means of an unusual incentive that Mercedes-Benz hides from its online configurator: Swap the standard 18-inch wheels for 17-inchers, and your dealer will knock $500 off the price just like that.

That means the rear-wheel drive C300 coupe technically starts at $43,075 with destination. The same option is available on the all-wheel drive 4MATIC coupe, which commands $2000 more. The only downside: You won’t be able to order the smaller wheels—you’d have to find such a car on the lot. (The wheel-downsizing option isn’t available on the C300 sedan since it already comes standard with 17-inch wheels.)

-

Besides 18-inch wheels, other C300 standard equipment includes: Bluetooth, HD radio, a 7.0-inch display, eight-way power seats, aluminum trim, and forward collision alert with auto-braking. A 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 241 horsepower and a seven-speed automatic provide the motivation.

You’ll want the Premium 1 package ($2300) for the backup camera, blind-spot monitoring, keyless entry and push-button start, six months of SiriusXM, and a 13-speaker 590-watt Burmester stereo to replace the unbranded eight-speaker unit. Opt for Premium 2 ($4500) and you’ll get the Premium 1 goodies plus an 8.4-inch screen with navigation and a touchpad, three years of map updates, live traffic and weather, ambient lighting, illuminated AMG door sills, power-folding mirrors, and a power-closing trunk with foot-gesture controls.

The Premium 3 package ($7400) is the only way to get active safety features such as adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic alert, pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, and Brake Assist Plus (which uses the Pre-Safe system to better prepare the car when someone rear-ends you). It also comes with automatic high beams, traffic sign recognition, LED headlights, and a perfume atomizer for the air conditioning.

-

Heated front seats ($580) are a separate, required option for all three Premium packages. Note that none of them include leather upholstery; you order that separately ($1620). Ventilated seats ($1030) also require leather.

The Sport package ($1675)—which can be combined with any of the Premium packages—ditches the standard all-season tires for summer rubber, and throws in cross-drilled front brake rotors, a stiffer suspension, aluminum pedals, MB-Tex on the dash, and a more aggressive body kit with chrome “diamonds” on the grille. A Night package, which includes the Sport package, blackens the exterior trim and wheels for $300 more. The Parking Assist package ($1290) brings 360-degree cameras, automatic parallel parking, and front and rear parking sensors. Other standalone options include the Airmatic suspension ($1190), a head-up display ($990), the incredibly tacky illuminated star ($550), and a very rare safety feature among coupes and all cars in general: rear-seat side airbags ($670).

All in, it’s possible to crest $62,000 with a C300 coupe with just a couple clicks. Of course, you could spend even more on a C-class coupe, with the C43 or C63 AMG bad boys, but their pricing specifics aren’t out yet.
