New for 2013 is the C300 4Matic's 3.5-liter direct-injection V6 that bumps output to 248 horsepower. A fuel-saving ECO start/stop feature is added to the C350 and C300 4Matic, while Distronic Plus becomes a stand-alone option. Mbrace2 internet and app connectivity is made standard on all trims.
With two doors, a lower profile and seating for four, the 2012 C-Class coupe brings a whole new dimension - quite literally - to Mercedes-Benz's entry-level lineup. Available in turbocharged 4-cylinder, solid V6 and sports-sedan-proper V8 flavor, the rear-wheel-drive C-Class coupe offers something to suit anyone's luxury-minded driving desires. While offerings from BMW, Infiniti, Audi and Cadillac are already big players in the entry-level luxury coupe segment, this new kid on the block has the potential to bring new, younger buyers to the 3-pointed star brand.
