Set to take on BMW in the luxury sport coupe segment, Mercedes-Benz has introduced the C-Class Coupe at the Geneva Auto Show.

With a profile similar to the E-Class coupe, it gets a slightly more simplistic front end borrowed from the C-Class sedan. It has a sportier edge to it as well, thanks to a roofline that is 1.5-inches lower.

The most exciting news is that the C350 Coupe will be powered by a new direct-injection version of Merc’s 3.5-liter V6 making 304-hp. Using the automaker’s 7-speed automatic transmission, it will hit 60 mph in just 5.9 seconds. Also available will be the C250 coupe using a new turbocharged direct-injection 4-cylinder that makes 201-hp and 229 lb-ft of torque for a 0-60 mph time of 7.1 seconds.

See more of the C-Class Coupe in the video above of the photo gallery below.

    This was a poor video. The news here is the couple body but the car was not shown in profile once – instead we get a standing reader and arty zoomy shots of the car’s front end and various details. Come on guys! Show us some good shots of the whole car!

    Nice car,but thats NOT leather !!! Same with the E Class,they use vinyl (called “MB Tex”)

    Why would anyone pay that much for a car with vinyl.
