Mercedes-Benz Concept Style Coupe unveiled, baby CLS on the way

Besides the Lamborghini Urus Concept, one of our favorite debuts at this year’s Beijing Motor Show is the Mercedes-Benz Concept Style Coupe, a study that hints at a smaller version of a CLS four-door coupe based on the new MFA modular platform that underpins the 2013 A-Class.

“The Concept Style Coupe is expressive and powerful in its design,” said Dr Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars. “We are staking our claim very clearly here. This is the model against which sporty vehicles in the executive segment will have to measure themselves in future.”

The Mercedes-Benz Concept Style Coupe measures 182.6 inches long, 74.5 inches wide, 55 inches tall and is 1.8 inches longer than the C-Class.

Power for the Mercedes-Benz Concept Style Coupe comes from a 2.0-liter direct-injection and turbocharged 4-cylinder gasoline engine making 208-hp. The engines is coupled with 4MATIC all-wheel-drive and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Not impressed by those figures? Reports suggest that the production version of the Concept Style Coupe, which could be called CLA or CLC, will come in AMG form making around 320-hp.

We’re looking forward to it.
