Word in the pipeline via AutoExpress is that Mercedes-Benz may be preparing a new C-Class four-door coupe to compete against the recent BMW 4-Series GranCoupe.
It was only recently did BMW introduce their direct competitor to the highly successful Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class–the 6-Series GranCoupe. And to get a little ahead in the niche filling, BMW introduced a four-door coupe version of their 4-Series. As a result, Mercedes-Benz may retaliate–it wouldn’t also be unreasonable to think of Audi doing the same thing as well.
AutoExpress received the scoop after speaking with Mercedes’ R&D chief, Thomas Weber.
