FACELIFT: Mercedes-Benz could release a coupe variant of its updated C-Class

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is gearing up for a facelift and our spies spotted the new model undergoing testing.

The current generation C-Class has been around since 2007 and our pics show that the German automaker is giving it a makeover complete with a redesigned front.

Changes will include new headlights, front bumper and a new bonnet design. The rear is expected to feature a new set of lights and some modifications to the bumper.

Some engine upgrades will be on offer while the interior should receive minor changes, too.

Mercedes-Benz did away with the CLK, replacing it with the E-Class Coupe, and it's likely that the same could happen when the CL changes to the S-Class Coupe.

We believe the C-Class could be available in a coupe variant, placing it above the CLC.

The updated C-Class is set for release in 2011, months before the all-new BMW 3 Series and the facelifted Audi A4.
