Next Mercedes C-Class Coupe to debut in Frankfurt?
The two-door C-Class will be longer, wider and lower than the sedan,.
A German magazine is reporting that Mercedes-Benz will introduce the new C-Class Coupe at the Frankfurt Motor Show that will take place next September.
In the United States, the Coupe will be offered with roughly the same engines as the sedan, meaning buyers will be asked to choose between a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder rated at 241 horsepower and a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 that generates 329 horsepower. Rear-wheel drive will come standard, and a performance-tuned version of Mercedes' 4Matic all-wheel drive system will be available at an extra cost.
Aimed at the BMW M4, an AMG-tuned model will round out the C-Class Coupe lineup in early 2016. It will be powered by the same 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that is found under the hood of the C63 and the C63 S (pictured). The base C63 Coupe will boast 469 horsepower, while the more expensive C63 S will be upgraded with 503 ponies.
Look for additional details about the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe will emerge in the weeks leading up to its debut in Frankfurt next fall. The two-door C will go on sale across the nation in the spring of 2016 as a 2017 model.
