Mercedes shows off C-Class Coupe

Mercedes-Benz has pulled the lid off of its new C-Class Coupe, a model that is sure to go head-to-head with BMW's similar 3-Series offering.

The C-Class is somewhat of a replacement for the company's CLK Coupe, which was discontinued in 2009. However, the new version is both smaller and less expensive than the previous model. According to AutoBlog, the coupe shares many similarities with the C-Class Sedan, with the key difference being the shape and size – the roofline on the coupe is 1.5 inches lower than the sedan, giving it a noticeably sleeker and more aerodynamic look.

Drivers will have a choice between a 201-horsepower four-cylinder or 304-horsepower V6, the same two engines offered on the sedan version. Mercedes is claiming a zero-to-sixty time of less than six seconds for the V6 version of the coupe.

Those who want true power may want to hold out a bit, however, as the C63 AMG version of the coupe is expected to be unveiled later this year and provide a serious upgrade in performance.

Drivers interested in a Mercedes-Benz or any other vehicle may want to shop New Jersey State Auto Auction, which offers a wide range of new and used cars for sale at affordable prices.
