Mercedes Benz released a full gallery of the C-Class Coupe pictures, revealing the car in its full glory ahead of the official debut at the Geneva Motor Show. It is still hard to see the point of it, but when you think about it you have to conclude why not?!
They had all the ingredients ready, they just put them together and ended up with a fine new coupe! This car is based on the same platform as the C Class sedan and wagon and looks exactly the same as the new facelifted model. But it has two doors, obviously, and a lower roof line that makes it sportier and cooler.
Despite being a coupe, this C Class is a proper four-seater and not a 2+2 and it has the same dimensions inside as the sedan. You can trade rear passengers space for more luggage room thanks to the folding back seats. The interior design is also the same as the new C sedan, which itself is very similar to the rest of Mercedes’ new range. No objections here since it’s a fine design with decent build quality and materials.
As for the engines, although we have to wait for the official technical details to be sure, but it will be available with a whole range of BlueEfficiency powertrains including the 1.8-liter four-cylinder turbo with 115 kW/156 hp in the C180 coupe and 150 kW/204 hp in the C 250 Coupe, a 3.5 liter V6 with 306 hp/225kW in the C350, and a turbodiesel unit with 125 kW/170 hp in the C220 CDI and 150 kW/204 hp in the C250 CDI.
All units will get stop/start system as standard, and some will get the 7G-tronic seven-speed gearbox by default. It is optionally available for all engines.
This car will also benefit from an AMG sport pack, but if you want the real deal you should wait a couple of months for the full-on AMG version of the C Coupe which will probably be a Black Series. That is going to be a real M3 killer.
Equipments and features of the Mercedes C Class Coupe is the same as the C Class sedan and includes an advanced multimedia system, the new COMMAND, and an array of safety and convenience features such as lane keeping system and blind-spot detection.
Pricing and availability of the C Coupe for different markets are yet to be announced. For now check out the pictures:
