Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe spotted in Malaysia 2

At Mercedes-Benz Malaysia’s recent Q1 performance review, it was revealed that the new C-Class Coupe would be making its local debut very soon. And it appears that the cars have already arrived in the country, thanks to images posted by William Low on the Malaysia Exotic Car Spotters Facebook group.

In the photos, we see several C-Class Coupes gathered outside a Mercedes-Benz showroom in a selection of colours. All of them appear to be fitted with the AMG Line package that feature a diamond radiator grille as well as sportier bumpers and side skirts.

Based on the differing wheels fitted on the cars, we can tell two of the variants that will be offered here, the C 200 Coupe and C 300 Coupe (indication has it that a C 250 AMG Line variant will also be available). The base C 200 Coupe gets 18-inch five-spoke AMG design alloy wheels like those found on the C 250 AMG Line sedan, while the C 300 AMG sedan’s 19-inch multi-spoke units have been fitted on the C 300 Coupe.

On the C 300 Coupe, full LED Intelligent Light System headlamps are also part of the package. No shots of either variant’s interior, but expect their equipment lists to mirror the C-Class sedan’s range. For instance, the C 200 Coupe would follow the C 200 Avantgarde, and the C 300 Coupe would be similar to the C 300 AMG Line sedan inside.

If that’s the case, the C 300 Coupe will benefit from a leather-covered dashboard, a larger 8.4-inch free-standing COMAND Online infotainment unit and a panoramic roof. The C 200 Coupe meanwhile, will settle with an Audio 20 CD infotainment system with a seven-inch display screen instead.

Power is provided by a 2.0 litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine. On the C 200, the mill makes 184 hp/300 Nm (0-100 km/h in 7.3 seconds), while the C 300 gets 245 hp/370 Nm (6.0 seconds). Merc’s standard 7G-Tronic transmission is to be expected, along with rear-wheel drive, as the are no 4Matic badges to be seen.
