Lightbulb Mercedes sees room for C-Class four-door coupe

Filed under: Sedan, Mercedes-Benz, Design/Style, Luxury

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class isn't on sale in the US yet, and there are already rumors of even more variants for the platform on the way. Mercedes is reportedly working on a four-door coupe model of its executive sedan with styling derived from the CLS-Class four-door coupe, in an effort take on the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe.

Mercedes' research and development chief Thomas Weber told Auto Express that there are many bodies on the way including the two-door coupe, convertible and others. When asked specifically about a four-door coupe variant, he replied: "Yes, there is room between the CLA and the CLS - we are intensively looking at remaining niches that will provide us with profitability and growth." That seems like a decent indication of things to come.

Like its competition over at BMW, Mercedes isn't afraid to create new vehicles to fill market niches. For example, we've spied vehicles like the CLA Shooting Brake (twice) and MLC-Class, plus, there have been rumors of a GLA-Class crossover coupe. Merc clearly doesn't want to lose out in this German war of competing in increasingly specific model segments.Mercedes sees room for C-Class four-door coupe originally appeared on Autoblog on Fri, 23 May 2014 11:30:00 EST.
