Convertible and AMG performance models to follow.

Mercedes will unveil the new 2017 C-Class Coupe at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.

One might forgive Mercedes-Benz for being too anxious to wait for the Frankfurt Motor Show next month to pull the covers off the new 2017 C-Class Coupe. So, just in time for two of the year’s biggest automotive events, the Pebble Beach Concours and Detroit’s Woodward Dream Cruise, the German maker is giving us a good look at the compact two-door.

As with the Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan that made its debut last year, Mercedes isn’t offering up a minor refresh. This is a major overhaul that delivers a more sporty, high-tech coupe with a decidedly more dynamic design directly aimed at challenging the likes of the BMW 4-Series.

“Our new C-Class Coupe continues the philosophy of…combin(ing) thrilling design with agile sportiness and modern luxury,” proclaims Thomas Weber, Daimler AG’s director of Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development. “The C-Class Coupe therefore clearly pledges itself to stylish driving enjoyment.” (more…)

First Look: 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe

2-door reveal set for Geneva Motor Show.

by on Feb.14, 2011

The 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe will debut at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.

Though the official debut is still weeks away, Mercedes-Benz has lifted the covers on an all-new entry to the line-up, the C-Class Coupe set for a formal introduction at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.

The 2-door that will be unveiled at Geneva’s PALExpo convention center will be a wee bit smaller than the old CLK that was dropped from the German line-up a few years back.

But for the lack of the rear doors and a lower, sloping roofline, the new coupe will bear a distinct familial resemblance to the updated C-Class sedan that made a brief debut during a Mercedes media party prior to the recent Detroit Auto Show.  Basic dimensions will be the same, including wheelbase and overall length.

Stay Tuned In!

Initially, two versions will be made available, including the C250, with a 1.8-liter 201-horsepower turbocharged inline-four, and the C350, with a 3.5-liter V6 making 304 horsepower.  Both will put power to the rear wheels through the Mercedes 7-speed automatic gearbox.  Expect to see some diesel power follow, as well as the high-performance C-Coupe AMG model that is on the schedule for a preview at the upcoming New York Auto Show.
