Mercedes Working on BMW 3 Series GT Rival
Expected to arrive in 2016, the new version of the C-Class will actually be a five-door hatchback that aims to combine the roominess of a station wagon and the sporty look of a coupe, as German website Autobild reports. That sounds like a BMW 3 Series GT competitor alright!
The new niche vehicle will most likely be powered by the same engines fitted to the standard C-Class model lineup, including the 2.2-liter CDI, the turbocharged 1.6-liter, the turbocharged 2.0-liter (all four-cylinder mills), and the twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6. Power outputs will range from 156 HP to as high as 333 HP.
The C-Class Sports Coupe will also feature a redesigned interior with more head and leg room, a panoramic sunroof and, as one would expect, a substantially higher price tag when compared with the sedan.
