Mercedes unveils new C-Class Coupe, launching in the UK this December
Mercedes has just revealed its latest coupe which is based on the new C-Class, carrying forward the general ideology just like all other coupes offered by the company. The latest addition in the Mercedes portfolio will be making its global debut at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show and it will be launched in the UK in the last month of this year.
Carrying a similar body style as the S-Class coupe, the C-Class coupe has a bold and amazing looking front grille along with a long flowing bonnet. Its wheelbase has increased by 80 mm, width has increased by 40 mm wider and it’s also longer by 95 mm when compared to its predecessor. The increased dimensions will be reflected clearly in the cabin with the front two passengers getting more head, elbow and shoulder room.
It has frameless doors like the CLA-Class (looks stunning) and the exterior mirrors have been placed on the door thereby adding to the sporty characteristics. Talking about sportiness, the vehicle sits 15 mm lower than the C-Class sedan and rides on big 17-inch alloy wheels.
The new C-Class coupe derives its power from two four-cylinder petrol and four-cylinder diesel engines. The two petrol engines includes a 1.6-litre four-cylinder mill which is found on the C 180 variant, outputting 156 HP and a 2.0-litre motor that comes in three states of tune – 184 HP in the C 200, 211 HP in the C 250 and 245 HP in the C 300. On the other hand, the two diesel engines with the same displacements put out 170 HP and 204 HP respectively. The diesel engines come equipped with eco-friendly SCR technology (Selective Catalytic Reduction). Fuel efficiency of all engines has gone up by 27 percent and the C-Class coupe comes with ECO start/stop, which enhances the sporty performance and driving pleasure of the vehicle.
An AMG model will also be made available later which as expected will look sportier, have better interior materials and also feature a sports steering wheel (a flat bottom) along with AMG sports pedals.
