2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe debuts – video and photo gallery image

The new generation of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe has been officially unveiled and it will be making its public debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, next month.

Mercedes-Benz has put an end to reports, rumors and spy shots of the brand new C-Class Coupe by officially pulling the wraps off its body. The model in question hasn’t been fully detailed at this point but that doesn’t mean that we have no clue on it. The new generation of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe is 95 mm longer, 40 mm wider and it is riding on an 80 mm increased wheelbase compared to the model it is replacing, an action taken by the car manufacturer in order to make room for its smaller brother, the CLA.

In terms of design, the new generation of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe is looking very similar to the S-Class Coupe and we cannot complain because the luxury cruiser is definitely one hot ride. The car manufacturer says that the Airmatic suspension will be offered on the vehicle, as an option, obviously, but standard features will be including the LED headlights, the panoramic roof, the keyless go and so on. The model will also be benefiting from the exterior styling changes but if you came here looking to find out some details on the range-topping C63 AMG Coupe, you will be disappointed because the carmaker is currently keeping it a secret.

The 3-pointed star has added a lot of safety and assistance systems which include the adaptive cruise control, the active lane keeping assist, the brake assist, the active parking assist, the 360-degree view camera, the sat-nav which can work with the air conditioning to close the air recirculation flap automatically when entering a tunnel and open it at the exit and so on. The carmaker has only mentioned, at this point, the C300 version and the C300 4MATIC, which will be making use of a 2.0 liter turbocharged gasoline engine, rated at 241 HP and 273 lb-ft of torque.

Rumor has it that the coupe will be using the same engine and gearbox lineup as the sedan. Additional details on it are limited at this point and will be announced in mid-September, at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. Sales will begin by the end of the year while the U.S. version will become available next spring. The range-topping C63 AMG Coupe hasn’t been unveiled yet.
