The Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan in its latest form has only been around in production for a couple of months and as a result, it’s only a matter of time until affluent yuppies are able to get their hands on the two-door version.
And recently, pictures of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe’s test mule just surfaced to reveal the car a little more, before it receives a full debut.
Coined as the W205 C-Class, the new coupe follows after its four-door sibling stylistically, which is essentially a shrunken-down version of the S-Class sedan, and that’s very visually apparent. So that said, the C-Class Coupe is basically a baby version of the S-Class Coupe–and that’s perfectly ok.
Compared to the last C-Class Coupe, this new model has a reduced ride height by 1.6 inches for a lower center of gravity and better handling. This is bolstered by the fact that Mercedes-Benz promises that the new C-Class Coupe has a greater emphasis on sporty performance rather than luxury. As a result, we’re told to expect some minor compromises in comfort and practicality.
Much like the sedan version, the coupe will receive a range of turbocharged gas and diesel four- and six-bangers, with the C63 AMG Coupe receiving the full-monty twin-turbocharged 4.0L AMG V8 in two forms.
