Mercedes-Benz has released some more info on the recently unveiled C-Class Coupe, in the European variant.
The newest model to join the Mercedes-Benz lineup is called the C-Class Coupe and it has been unveiled just a few days ago. The model in question will be taking aim at the BMW 4-Series Coupe, at the Cadillac ATS-V, at the upcoming Audi A5, in its new generation, and so on. The vehicle is now 95 mm longer, 40 mm wider and riding on an 80 mm increased wheelbase compared to its predecessor and these actions have been taken in order to make room for its smaller brother, the CLA. In terms of design, the new C-Class Coupe looks basically like a shrunken S-Class Coupe and we cannot complain about this.
Mercedes-Benz says that the range will be kicking off with a 1.6 liter engine, producing 156 HP (115 kW) in the C180 version. This will be followed by the C200, which will get a 2.0 liter engine under its hood, producing 184 HP (135 kW). The same unit will be found on the C250 too, where it will be producing 211 HP (155 kW), while in the C300 this will generate 245 HP (180 kW). The diesel lineup will include a single engine, at first at least, a 2.1 liter unit with 170 HP (125 kW) in the C220d and with 204 HP (150 kW) in the C250d. The engine lineup has been obviously carried over from the sedan and estate and it will also be introduced in the C-Class Cabrio.
Some of the features of the car include the LED headlights, keyless go, panoramic roof, Airmatic suspension system, brake assist, lane keeping, active park, 360-degree view camera, sat-nav working with the air conditioning in order to close the air recirculation flap automatically when entering a tunnel and so on. More details on the brand new Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe are still being kept into the shadows at this point but chances are they will be released during the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, when this will be making its public debut.
