We've already seen the 2014 Mercedes C-Class in prototype form on numerous occasions, but we haven't heard much about the C-Class Coupe until now.

Set to debut in 2015 or 2016, the C-Class Coupe will reportedly have an evolutionary design with LED-infused headlights, a more upright grille and flared wheel arches. We can also expect a restyled rear-end that will give the car a "more dynamic stance."

Like the sedan, the coupe will grow in size as its wheelbase is rumored to be three inches (76mm) longer than the current model. This should result in a more accommodating cabin with additional rear seat legroom and extra trunk space.

Engine options remain unconfirmed but speculation suggests we can expect:

  • A 1.6-liter four-cylinder with 154 HP (113 kW)
  • A 2.0-liter four-cylinder with outputs of 184 HP (135 kW), 211 HP (155 kW) and 252 HP (185 kW)
  • A 3.0-liter V6 with 333 HP (245 kW)
  • A 4.0L V8 with 462 HP (340 kW)

There could also be a couple of diesels, a hybrid or two and possibly a C63 AMG Black Series successor.
