Making their global premier a few weeks ago, the 2019 Mercedes C-Class Coupe and Cabriolet showed off their exquisite curves along with a host of upgrades inside and out with some shying away from the naked eye.
Starting off with the C200, the ‘entry’ level variant boasts a new generation four-cylinder petrol engine rated at 204 horsepower power. The C300 also packs a 2.0-litre engine and pushes out 258 horsepower. The new C 43 gets a 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine rated at 390 horsepower and 530 Nm of torque. In coupe form and all-wheel drive, the four-seater launches from standstill to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds before hitting a top speed of 250 km/h. The cabriolet achieves the same feet in 4.8 seconds.
As part of the AMG lineup, the C 43 gets a bold AMG grille, unique LED headlamps, rear lights and more.
Interiorwise, the new Mercedes C-Class Coupe and Cabriolet receive standard push-start engine control, cruise control modes, USB inputs, Bluetooth connectivity, SD card slot, two 12-inch displays and LINGUATRONIC voice controls.
The latest versions offer an optional Dynamic Body Control system, Active Distance Control, Active Brake Assist, Active Steering Assist and much more.
What about a greener version of the Mercedes C-Class Coupe?
While a hybrid version of the C-Class is not in the pipeline for 2018/2019, Tobias Moers, Boss of AMG has said: “the next generation Mercedes-AMG C63 will be a hybrid.” So that’s at least one ‘green’ Mercedes C-Class Coupe in the pipeline. As for a time frame and other models, no Mercedes representative’s have stepped forward to announce anything.
When exactly the 2019 Mercedes C-Class Coupe and Cabriolet will hit the GCC market is unknown as is how much one example will set you back.
