Mercedes-Benz is famous for inventing a lot of things, including the first series-production diesel passenger car, the first production vehicle with safety bodywork or ESP. More recently, the Germans made an impact for exploring new car niches with the launch of the CLS and CLA four-door, coupe-like sedans .
And it appears Mercedes is about to expand its ’tweener lineup even further with a C-Class -based, four-door coupe . At least that what company R&B boss Thomas Weber told Auto Express, adding that the Stuttgart crew is "intensively looking at remaining niches that will provide us with profitability and growth."
"There is room between the CLA and the CLS," he stressed, although without going into specifics, hinting that once the brand-new C-Class Coupe is out, a four-door version of it will follow. Of course, this is far from being an official statement, but it would make a lot of sense for Mercedes-Benz to come up with yet another sleek, aerodynamic sedan .
However, the new vehicle isn’t likely to show up before the 2016 model year, when the C-Class Coupe is rumored to hit dealerships.
