Mercedes-Benz Concept Style Coupe (CSC) introduced ahead of 2012 Auto China

Article by Christian Andrei, on April 19, 2012

After yesterday’s leaked photos, the Mercedes-Benz Concept Style Coupe (CSC) was revealed today in all its glory. Set to make its public debut at the 2012 Auto China (23 April to 2 May 2012), the new Concept Style Coupe previews the upcoming Mercedes-Benz CLA, which will be a smaller CLS. Regarding its design.

The Concept Style Coupe follows the same design line as the Concept A-Class, featuring innovative headlamps inspired by the eyes of a predatory animal. What is really interesting is that these headlamps shine red when the car is in standby mode. The indicators are another special feature: when they are activated, the individual elements light up one after another in a "Mexican wave" effect.

Just like the CLS, the Coupe Style Concept features frameless side windows and no B-pillar. The rear end features stylish tail lights with metallic-red colouring and an integrated dual-flow exhaust system, which underlines the car's sporty credentials.

The design of the car is completed by the Alubeam paint finish, a color that helps to emphasise the sculptural quality of its lines. In addition to the Alubeam finish, the vehicle features 20-inch wheels with a sporty turbine design. And because it is a concept, the Coupe Style features special materials for the interior, such as carbon fiber and anthracite-coloured Alcantara.

The four integral seats with integrated head restraints are already familiar from the Sports version of the new A-Class. Just like the Concept A-Class, the air vents seen on the Concept Style Coupe interior are inspired by an aircraft jet engine.

Under the hood, the Coupe Style Concept features a 2.0-litre petrol engine delivering 155 kW (211 hp), combined with a 4MATIC all-wheel drive system and a 7G-DCT dual clutch automatic transmission.

Some of the highlights of the four-cylinder engine are its direct-injection system with exhaust gas turbocharging, an enhanced combustion system and extended stratification ranges for lean-burn operation using fast-acting injectors for the multiple fuel injections, and multi-spark ignition according to need.
