Spy shots reveal 2012 C-Class Coupe

People have been asking how the C-Class coupe would look like ever since Mercedes-Benz announced plans to build the baby brother to the E-Class coupe.
It would be safe to assume that since it would be based on the sedan,
some features from that 4-door model would make it to the coupe. Based
on the spy photographs we have seen, the future C-Class coupe will carry
over the sedan’s front section, including the taillights and the rear
bumper. As expected, there will be new rooflines, doors and windows.
It is possible that Mercedes will offer the new C-Class at a price
lower than that of the sedan, in consideration of the decrease in the
purchasing power of the consumer these past years.
As for the motive power for these coupes, it is anyone’s guess but
existing powerplant configurations for the sedan come from four and six
cylinder engines delivering 155 to 290 horsepower. Mercedes-Benz also
has diesels of up to 230 horsepower for the sedan but only they know if
those oil burners will make it to the coupe.
