Mercedes has officially unveiled the new C-Class Coupe, which features elegant styling and a luxurious interior.
Mercedes has officially unveiled the C-Class Coupe at the Geneva Motor Show.
On the design front, the C-Class Coupe features a steeply raked windscreen, an upward sweeping beltline, and a kinked rear window. Unfortunately, to maximize chassis rigidity, engineers were forced to install a traditional B-pillar which is bit disappointing as the pillarless design is a Mercedes trademark.
Inside, the cabin is awash with high-quality materials and premium accents. Notable highlights include a flat-bottom steering wheel, aluminum trim, and a 5.8-inch COMAND display. Also, options include heated front seats, wood trim, a Harman/Kardon audio system, and GPS navigation.
Under the hood, five different engines are available. The C 220 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY uses a 2.1-liter four-cylinder with 125 kW (170 PS / 168 hp) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 8.1 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 231 km/h (144 mph).
Moving up to the C 250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY rewards owners with a more powerful 2.1-liter engine that develops 150 kW (204 PS / 201 hp) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque. Thanks to the extra output, the dash to 100 km/h takes 7.0 seconds and the top speed is 240 km/h (149 mph).
On the petrol side, the C 220 BlueEFFICIENCY boasts a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with 115 kW (156 PS / 154 hp) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque. It allows the car to run from 0-100 km/h in 8.9 seconds, before topping out at 225 km/h (140 mph).
Likewise, the C 250 BlueEFFICIENCY has a 1.8-liter engine that churns out 150 kW (204 PS / 201 hp) and 310 Nm (229 lb-ft) of torque. This results in a 0-100 km/h time of 7.2 seconds and a top speed of 240 km/h (149 mph).
Lastly, the C 350 BlueEFFICIENCY shown above in a matte finish uses a 3.5-liter V6 with 225 kW (306 PS / 302 hp) and 370 Nm (273 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in six seconds, before topping out at 250 km/h (155 mph).
The C-Class Coupe will go on sale in June and Mercedes has high hopes for a successful launch.
