|Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sports Coupe Hothatch up from 2016|
There's a lot going on with the Design of Mercedes-Benz Cars right now .. after a first "preview" of the upcoming Mercedes-Benz GT here another Car, a C-Class Hothatch! It will combine the features of a coupe, wagon and sedan and will be released in late 2016, maybe during the Paris Motor Show and also maybe already revealed at the Geneva Motor Show 2016.
It's more than a simple "five-door hatchback in a sporty look", the new Sports Coupe combines all the best of three different vehicle types: practical and spacious like a station wagon, with five doors of a sedan and the sporty look of a coupe. Sounds like a winning formula? Well, in my opinion this first Pictre above doesn't fit my taste that well (yet), but I think we have to wait a few more years until we see the first real Concept Car revelealed and the first Mule's driving around.
The biggest competitiors of the new Mercedes C-Class Sports Coupé are the Audi A5 Sportback and the BMW 3-series GT, about the Price there are no information yet, but it will be indeed more expensive than the regular 4-door C-Class. There will be environmentally friendly hybrid's available, but also petrol engines from 184 hp with the 2.0 l four-cylinder up to the 3.0 twin-turbo V6 with 333 hp. the 2.0 litre Diesel will either produce 170 or 204 hp.
