Mercedes-Benz has announced that it will add a Coupé to its C-Class family.

By combining sporty driving dynamics with a bold design, the Coupé is expected to both thrill and comfort passengers, while also featuring a modern interior equipped with the latest technology.

Thanks to its dynamically-configured chassis, with optional air suspension, the Coupé is also designed to stick well to the tarmac, and is further enhanced by a significant reduction in body weight, refined aerodynamics and an efficient engine line-up.

As the sportiest variant of the C-Class, the Coupé boasts a very distinctive design, consisting of a striking front section, which features a diamond radiator grille and long bonnet 

Dr. Thomas Weber, of Daimler AG and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development, said: "Our new C-Class Coupé continues the philosophy of our exciting coupés. It combines thrilling design with agile sportiness and modern luxury. The C-Class Coupé therefore clearly pledges itself to stylish driving enjoyment.”

Clean lines and sensually arranged surfaces bestow the side sections into vivid light and shadow effects. One particular highlight is the long drawn-out dropping line typical of a coupé. In contrast to the C-Class Saloon, the dropping line extends further past the rear wheel arch. To underscore the Coupé's sporty disposition, the suspension is 15 millimetres lower than that of the Saloon, making it a very sporty proposition when combined with the standard 17-inch tyres.

The new Coupé is set to hit showrooms in December 2015.
