Spy Shots: Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe In The Wild

Our spy photographers have captured some images of Mercedes-Benz’s third attempt at producing a competitor for the BMW 3-Series Coupe. Unlike the C-Class Sport Coupe and CLC-Class of the past years, the new C-Class Coupe looks to be a true coupe, not a hatchback.

The C Coupe should carry the same powertrains as the sedan and wagon, likely gas- and diesel-powered I-4’s and V-6’s (and hopefully a certain 6.2-liter V-8). Expect the C-Class Coupe to go on sale sometime in 2011.

Scroll down for comments from our spy shooter.

No, this is not a facelifted C-Class but the new C-Class Coupe that will hitthe showrooms in 2011. The last C Coupe, the CLC was not such a big hit but looking at this one it could well be a success since it looks balanced in shape.
Technical data will be the same as the facelifted C-Class sedan and T model.
