Adaptive brake assist is available as an option that audibly warns the driver at speeds above 4 mph of potential collisions. It's also capable of autonomous braking at speeds of up to 124 mph to help reduce the severity of a collision or possibly help to avoid one entirely.

Distronic Plus with Steering Assist offers adaptive cruise control capabilities with a speed range from 0 to 124 mph. Steering Assist also works between 0 and 124 mph to help keep the car in its lane.

Unfortunately, the C300 Coupe's infotainment system is not Apple CarPlay- and Android Auto-compatible. A Mercedes spokesman said that those features are on the wish list, but couldn't give any further details on when or if they will arrive for the C-Class family.
