SPIED!: Mercedes C-Class Coupe

2010-12-17 08:01

TWO + TWO: The new C-Class Coupe will replace the current Mercedes-Benz CLC coupe.

They tried so hard to hide it, but still we got shots of Mercedes’ all-new C-Class Coupe in its full glory.

Unlike its bigger E-Class Coupe brother, the smaller C-Class version will not receive individual styling, but will retain the sedan’s front section as well as the taillights and rear bumper.

The centre section and roofline, doors and windows, however, will be unique to Mercedes’ new small 2+2-seater. Still disguised is the rear side window that will reportedly feature a design element similar to the "Hofmeister Kick" typically seen on BMWs.

Under the bonnet we can expect to see the mix of four- and six-cylinder petrol and turbodiesel engines available on the C-Class sedan.

And even though the new C-Class Coupe’s dimensions won’t differ much from the sedan, prices might still be a lower than those of its four-door brother. The new car will replace the current CLC coupe model based on the previous generation W203 C-Class sedan.
