Mercedes is weighing the possibility of introducing a coupe-styled sedan that would sit between the CLA and CLS.
“We are intensively looking at remaining niches that will provide us with profitability and growth,” Mercedes research and development boss Thomas Weber told AutoExpress. He also said the company plans to build two-door coupe and convertible versions of the new C-Class.
Weber said that because the C-Class is being built across four plants, the company is able to build model variants more quickly and at a lower cost.
The 2015 C-Class will come with either a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 241 hp and a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 with 329 hp.
