It’s the third body style of the W205 generation and joins the already available sedan and wagon while the lineup will be expanded sometime next year by the addition of a cabriolet. As you can see from the attached images, it looks a lot like a miniature S-Class Coupe and dare we say this design suits the model very well although many will criticize Mercedes-Benz for not differentiating their cars more. When put side by side with the outgoing C-Class Coupe, the new version has grown considerably in size as it is 95 mm longer, 40 mm wider and comes with an 80 mm extended wheelbase.

Preliminary technical specifications have been released and refer to the availability of C300 and C300 4MATIC models which will both share a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbo engine developing 241 bhp and 371 Nmof torque. Full details about engines and gearboxes should be disclosed in the near future since the model is programmed to go on sale in Europe shortly after its public debut set for next month at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

The C-Class Coupe is going to be offered at an additional cost with the company’s proprietary air suspension along with several safety and related systems such as active parking assist, active lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control and a 360-degree camera. Interestingly, the climate control system works together with the satellite navigation and just before entering a tunnel it automatically closes the air recirculation flap which is opened immediately after the car leaves the tunnel.

Mercedes-Benz says the US-spec model will get a lot of standard kit such as keyless start, LED headlights, panorama sunroof and a sport suspension. There’s also going to be a Sport Appearance package with 18-inch AMG alloy wheels, flat-bottomed steering wheel, sport pedals, diamond radiator grille (with chrome pins) and AMG-styled bumpers and side sills.

As for the flagship C63 version, this will be unveiled next Wednesday and will likely go on sale together with the other C-Class Coupe models.
