Article by Christian A., on October 21, 2013

All of you folks know that Audi has the A5 Sportback, BMW will roll the 4-Series GranCoupe, but what about Mercedes-Benz? It appears, that the German manufacturer is also thinking at a new model and when the next-generation C-Class will be introduced it will also bring a new member to the family: the C-Class Sportcoupe.

Set to go on sale in 2015, the C-Class Sportcoupe will not be like the earlier three-door Sportcoupe based on the third-generation C-Class.

In fact, the new C-Class Sportcoupe will get a five-door layout similar to the A5 Sportback and will use a long wheelbase just like the C-Class saloon sold in China. This means additional legroom comparing it with the standard C-Class sedan.

For those who still don’t know, Mercedes-Benz will also build the C-Class Cabriolet, the official successor of the old CLK Cabriolet.

Mercedes-Benz will also bring new C-Class models such as the C300 plug-in petrol hybrid and the new diesel-electric C300 Bluetec Hybrid.

Marking the start of another success story at Mercedes-Benz, the all-new C-Class is setting new standards in the premium mid-range class – as made possible by its intelligent lightweight design concept, new efficient engines and superb aerodynamics. Furthermore, the new C-Class is provided with an array of new assistance systems that offer a new level of safety. It is also provided with a new suspension -- optionally air-sprung – for a superior level of ride and driving comfort, as well as agile handling.

Meanwhile, the visual looks of the new C-Class has taken a more progressive approach, featuring an expressive exterior and a high-class interior. Furthermore, the new C-Class comes with several interior elements that allow it to offer refined athleticism and stimulating comfort. Overall, the new C-Class feels like an "upgrade to a higher class of travel."

Interested customer could now order their new Mercedes C-Class Saloon. At launch, the C-Class will be available in Germany in three versions: the C 180 with a base price of EUR33,558; the C 200 with a starting tag of EUR36,414; and the C 220 BlueTEC that is available from EUR38,675. All prices in Germany include a 19-percent VAT.

Mercedes considers the C-Class as its best-seller, with the previous model – introduced in 2007 – already exceeding 2.4 million. The new C-Class builds on this success, offering a sensual yet clear design. The new C-Class also comes with an array of technical innovations and a wide range of standard equipment. Furthermore, the new C-Class boasts of excellent consumption and emission numbers.

Thomas Weber, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG in charge of Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development, called the new C-Class as Mercedes at its best, adding that the new model sets new standards for the mid-range segment.

He remarked that the new C-Class comes with an emotional yet clear design that is also apparent on its modern interior. He added that the vehicle’s efficient and high-performance engineering allows the C-Class to provide high levels of driving enjoyment.
