2012 Mercedes C-Klasse Coupe Hits the Road

With the Geneva Motor Show just around the corner, Mercedes Benz has decided to squeeze out a little bit of extra interest from the journalistic world and the brand's loyal customers by publishing the first official video showing the 2012 Mercedes C-Klasse Coupe, in which it shows the car’s main features. According to the video, the coupe that's making its official debut in less than two weeks will have shorter overhangs, a longer hood and an update in terms of technology, engine and assistance systems. When compared to the sedan version, the 2012 Mercedes C-Klasse Coupe will differ through its sportier seats at the front, a 3-spoke steering wheel, and the latest generation of the optional command system with online access. The 55-second ad also highlights the efficient engine lineup that comes with direct fuel injection and start stop technology as standard for all powerplants available. The model in the video is the C250 CDI, which is the most efficient of the whole range, consuming only 4.9-liters of diesel every 100 kilometers (38 mpg). Designed as a replacement for both the CLK and CLC Sports Coupe, the German carmaker’s entry-level two door model will take on both the BMW 3-Series coupe and Audi’s A5. The design is loosely based on the facelifted C-Klasse, from which it differs from the A-pillar back. autoevolution will be attending the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, so stay tuned for some real up close and personal shots of the vehicles, as well as for first-hand details of the motorized contraptions presented at the event.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
