Mercedes C-Class Coupe Video: First Look at the Newest 2-Door Benz
Set to take on BMW in the luxury sport coupe segment, Mercedes-Benz has introduced the C-Class Coupe at the Geneva Auto Show.
With a profile similar to the E-Class coupe, it gets a slightly more simplistic front end borrowed from the C-Class sedan. It has a sportier edge to it as well, thanks to a roofline that is 1.5-inches lower.
The most exciting news is that the C350 Coupe will be powered by a new direct-injection version of Merc's 3.5-liter V6 making 304-hp. Using the automaker's 7-speed automatic transmission, it will hit 60 mph in just 5.9 seconds. Also available will be the C250 coupe using a new turbocharged direct-injection 4-cylinder that makes 201-hp and 229 lb-ft of torque for a 0-60 mph time of 7.1 seconds.
