Mercedes-Benz today offered up a first video with the slightly redesigned 2012 C-Class Coupe.
This car is to star at the Geneva auto show in March 2011. It is based on the recently face lifted C-class sibling, with a hint of performance tweak.
The C-Class Coupe offers two direct-injection engine options. The C250 trim comes with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, offering 201 hp and 229 pound-feet of torque. It goes from 0 to 60 in 7.1 seconds and averages a combined 24 mpg (estimated).
As for the C350, it will be running a V6 mill pumping out 302 hp and 273 ft-lb of torque propelling the car from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds while sipping an average of 10.69 litres per 100 km.
The new coupe is also set to come in AMG form, following in the footsteps of the late Mercedes-Benz CLK55 AMG from 2009. The AMG model is likely to include the same 6.2-litre V8 from the C63 AMG.
