The new Mercedes Benz C-Class Coupe is set to arrive in the UK in December to take on the BMW 4 Series.
It pretty much follows the spec of C-Class saloon although it 15mm lower, 95mm longer and 40mm wider and is some 60mm longer than its predecessor. There will be a number of features that are unique to the Coupe including colour schemes and sports seats.
Power will come at launch from a choice of four petrol engines, C180 1.6-litre 156 hp, C200 2.0-litre 184 hp, C250 2.0-litre 211 hp and a C300 2.0-litre 245 hp. And two diesel models sharing a 2.1-litre unit with two power outputs, C220 170 hp or a C250 204hp.
There will be the option of AIRMATIC air suspension to replace the steel springs, with the option of "ECO", "Comfort", "Sport", "Sport +" and "Individual" driver selectable settings.
Other option highlights include Active Parking Assist, 360 surround vision, Camera and navigation-based Traffic Sign Assist and Adaptive Highbeam Assist Plus – that will allow you to stay on full-beam without dazzling on-coming traffic by masking out your beam.
We will have prices and full specifications shortly.Published 14 August 2015
