In an official statement, Mercedes confirmed that a Coupe version for the current C-Class will be unveiled in 2011. It will be produced at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Bremen, next to the Saloon, the Estate, and the compact GLK SUV.

"The decision by the Board of Management to produce the Coupe version of the current C-Class here in Bremen as well represents another important milestone on our way to becoming Mercedes’ competence center for the C-Class and is a clear sign of the trust in the Bremen team’s capabilities and standards," says Peter Schabert, Head of the Mercedes-Benz plant in Bremen.

Also, the company announced that the next generation C-Class will be launched in 2014, but first the sedan version will be launched followed by other C-Class model variants.

To my eyes, just not as sexy a profile as a BMW 3 series coupe, or a Mustang. May be because it still looks too much like the sedan. But the sedan is a gorgeously proportioned small car, better looking than the 3 series sedan. It just goes to show, Mercedes doesn’t really get the small coupe market.

Not a bad looking coupe, but something about its side profile looking from the rear just is not right. I am not sure what it is. I agree with some posters, there is a bit of Accord coupe in there somewhere.

Hate to say it, because I prefer coupes, but the character lines and proportions that make the sedan a real knockout don’t work as well here, based on the photo.It looks like all they did was make the door longer and get rid of the rear door.

Mercedes-Benz confirmed it will launch a C-Class coupe in 2011, saying the new two-door will join its siblings, the C-Class sedan and wagon, on the assembly line here.

So, C-coupe would be cheaper compared to other luxury coupe released? Anyways, E Class is still belongs to C class group, so they only changed the rear instead of C.

What a big surprise by MB after a long years of renderings they’ve finally put this into production.

MB can do whatever they want because the target customers are different. They are not competing with Audi at all. Different age, different taste, and different income group.

That’s nice at least the long wait is finally over. A car that will make a difference.

Europe has coupe variant of the C-class based purely on its options i could see how its geared at the 1. It seems downgraded for some reason. Hoping we don’t get that style! Check it out on MB’s UK website.
