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.

The C-Class Coupe will ride on the same platform as the C-Class sedan but it will be nearly four inches longer, an inch and half wider and marginally lower than its four-door counterpart. It will stand out thanks to a more aggressive design that will borrow a large number of styling cues from the larger S-Class Coupe.

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.
