The third-largest premium automaker in the world, Daimler’s Mercedes-Benz has released this year a new generation of its best-selling C-Class sedan. Now, the rumor mill has turned to its well-known sporty derivative – the C-Class Coupe.
According to fresh German media reports, the future generation of the classy two-door derivative would come in the fall of 2015, with Mercedes-Benz opening the order books for the model in September. Codenamed C205, the C-Class Coupe is the next variation of the current generation C-Class and the model is coming sooner than later, with a forecasted world premiere in time for the Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany. While Mercedes’ would proceed to take customer orders from that moment, the lucky owners won’t be taking delivery of their German ride until December. This is also in line with an earlier report that depicted the company’s plans for next year, where the C-Class Coupe was scheduled for November 2015 – although it didn’t also say if it was just the reveal or launch.
After the coupe is properly introduced to the C-Class range (now formed out of the sedan and station wagon), naturally we’ll have on our hands in 2016 the C-Class Cabriolet (A205) – which unlike its closest rival, the BMW 4 Series, will feature a fabric roof.
