Like in the sedan, the C 200 Coupé gets a new 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine, while the C 300 retains the 2.0-litre engine. The variant is also equipped with the EQ Boost 48-volt on-board network with a belt-driven alternator. When accelerating, EQ Boost can assist the 135 kW (184 hp) engine with an additional 10 kW (13 hp), bridging the brief moment until the turbocharger has built up its full charge pressure. During deceleration, the starter/alternator recuperates kinetic energy and charges the battery.
