2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe headed for Geneva

2012 Mercedes Benz C Class Coupe

The 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe will be officially unveilled at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. The unveiling happens in March but the car will only be available in September in the US. Here are some early details however to whet your appetite.

New flair for 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe

At launch the 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe will be available in 2 engine options; a 3.5 litre V6 gasoline engine, capable of 302hp which comes in the C350 and a 1.8 litre 4-cylinder turbocharged engine which comes in the C250. Both options will come with a 7-speed automatic transmission.

The head of sales and marketing at Mercedes-Benz, Joachim Schmidt, mentions that the new 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe is “youthful, stylish and expressive” and is targeted at new customers. I’m not quite on the same ‘youthful’ vibe that he is on but the new C-Class Coupe definitely works well on the stylish front. The lowered roofline and 2 less doors go a long way on creating a more sleek and streamlined car than the C-Class sedan it is based on.
