Fresh after its last week reveal, Mercedes’ all-new C-Class Coupe hypnotizes us again with its incredibly sensuous lines, now detailed in a fresh batch of official pictures.
Leaning heavily for styling inspiration on the equally gorgeous C-Class saloon with which it also shares its mechanical package, the all-new C-Class Coupe successfully mimics the debonair attitude of its bigger brother, the S-Class Coupe, slim LED taillights and high waist line included.
Compared with its four-door sibling, the two-door C-Class gets unique detailing such as the long frameless doors, high belt-line, fixed B-pillars and heavily plunging roofline. Last, but not the least, the Cx of 0.26 is the best in its class.
Under this gorgeous ball dress hides none other than the MRA architecture, the same platform used by the C-Class sedan and T-Modell variants. The new Coupe does get bespoke settings like re-tuned springs and dampers and a revised suspension lowered by 15mm coupled with a lower center of gravity and larger diameter anti-roll bars with firmer bushings.
Also carried over from the C-Class sedan and T-Modell, the engine range comprises of four petrol and two diesel variants, all of them featuring four cylinders, turbo and direct injection: C 180 (1.6 liter/156 CP), C 200 (2 liter/184 HP), C 250 (2 liter, 211 HP) and C 300 (2 litres, 245 HP) on the petrol side plus the 2.2 liter 4-cylinder with 170 HP (C 220 d) and 204 HP (C 250 d) dedicated to fans of the oil-burning philosophy.
The interior also remains largely unchanged with identical dashboard layout and ambiance, all with a twist of sportiness instilled by the centre console, the door and rear side panelling which smoothly merge into one another to emphasise the coupe character. The big news however are the exclusive sports seats equipped with an automatic belt feeder, a treat the C-Class sedan owners are deprived of.
Following its Frankfurt motor show public debut, the new C-Class Coupe will arrive in Mercedes dealerships this September with its Cabrio sibling already confirmed for 2016.
