S-Class Coupe will come with a fresh new face including a new front grill and bumper, new headlamps with LED accents and S-Class inspired air intake slates.
Our spy photographers have manage to snap a few more shots of an unmasked upcoming Mercedes S-Class Coupe undergoing some final winter testing.
The S-Class Coupe will be replacing the CL model, with Mercedes simplifying its nomenclature for its coupe editions, as the model was always based on the S-Class platform.
New will be the headlamps, augmented by LED daytime running lights, the front grille and front bumper, and S-Class mirroring air intake slates. The rear bumper shows only a slight change in shape.
Engines will come from the same range as the S-Class, with a 5.5 liter V8 topping things out. Mercedes' 3.0 liter diesel will also be an option, likely offered with BlueEfficiency as in the rest of the lineup.
Will there be an S-Class Coupe 400 BlueHybrid too? There may be, although critics have noted that the S-Class 400 BlueHybrid sedan doesn't really offer much advantage over the 3.0 liter diesel with a fuel economy rating of 7.9 liters/100 km. The 400 BlueHybrid drivetrain marries a 3.5 liter V6 gasoline/petrol engine with 279 PS (275 bhp or 205 kW) to a 20 PS (15 kW) electric motor that provides a total torque rating of 385 Nm (284 lb-ft). Again, neither the torque rating nor fuel economy really out-besting the diesel.
What can be expected for the new S-Class Coupe are a few technological upgrades, such as a SPLITVIEW monitor, an updated Night View Assist system that can also detect pedestrians, and a new and improved COMAND system.
