I was just commenting to my wife yesterday that I can't believe Mercedes doesn't have a C-class coupe yet they have the E-class coupe...and BMW is the other way around (no 5 series coupe)....or maybe there is a C-class coupe and I've never seen one?

What I posted is going to be the new C-Class coupe. I must say I really like it probably because it looks like my car. The interior is also looking nicer. Full writeup is here: http://www.autoblog.com/2010/09/14/s...ff-its-inside/

I love my Mercedes...so many dog the interior...but I like it better than my Bimmer..the dash and door panels are a little worse but other than that, I think it's better than the bimmer...and it's an AWESOME daily driver...

What's with the pillar attached to the door... It's a coupe!!!! There should be no pillar attached to the door... unless they are modeling it after a Chevy Cobalt...

Nothing in the definition of a coupe says anything about where the B pillar connects. In fact, depending on how specific you want to get, convertibles actually fall within the context of the coupe definition as well

Agreed, but there is something about not having the rim around the coupe doors that just sets it apart. Look at the E coupe... beautiful machine... They went as far as to eliminate the b-pillar entirely to add to the look. Of course, structural rigidity suffers but the look is achieved.



Makes me wonder why Benz went this approach on the C-coupe

Such tiny wheels on such a long wheelbase make it look like a 2005 Pontiac GTO.

100% agree with you, much more aesthetically pleasing to have no B pillar or have it at least set back behind the door

E class > C class But if budget is a concern, I would be happy with a C coupe... I am starting to get tired of the same dashboard...

I see they're not using the Navigation screen that pops up out of the dash on the C-Class sedan. This dash looks a bit more Audiish in it's Nav screen.

Not a bad looking car but I cannot imagine choosing this over the E93 unless the price is far below. Also, HP numbers the 328 but below the 335 might be a draw, especially if the price is right.

An AMG version of the coupe is slated to come out, and purportedly a Black Series model sometime thereafter. I really hope they come out with an E63 AMG Black Series though.
