Earlier this week we brought you the first official photos of the 2012 Mercedes C-Class Coupe, but they were fairly limited in scope. Today, we’ve got an even more revealing look at the model, with the new C-Class Coupe revealed from a variety of different angles.
As already noted, the 2012 C-Class Coupe is built on the standard C-Class platform, with the exception of a roof line that’s lowered from its sedan counterpart. Under the hood, the international market will receive two 1.8-liter four-cylinder turbo power plants outputting 115 kW / 156 hp in the C180 and 150 kW / 204 hp in the C250 along with a new 225 kW / 306 hp C350. From the diesel lineup, look for the 2.1-liter turbo diesel to arrive in both the C220 CDI (125 kW / 170 hp) and the C250 CDI (150 kW / 204 hp). Start-stop technology will be standard equipment, and the seven-speed automatic transmission with 7G-Tronic Plus will be included in the C250 and C350 models.
We’ll bring you more details of the 2012 Mercedes C-Class Coupe when Mercedes officially premiers the model. In the meantime, check out the gallery below for the complete 2012 C-Class Coupe gallery.
