Mercedes-Benz is completing final proving testing on the C-Class Coupe which will go on sale at the end of the year after being revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Spy shots of the prototype testing reveal a design with a more sharply raked windscreen than the standard C-Class and with a sloping roofline. There will also be detailed design changes to the coupe's front-end to distinguish it from the sedan and wagon models. Autocarclaims that the MRA platform allows Mercedes-Benz's designers to be flexible in their approach. The C-Class Coupe will compete head to head with the BMW 4-Series and the next generation Audi A5 which is due out in 2016. The company's official said the Coupe will be the standout model in the C-Class range in terms of desirability, with a convertible variant also being added to the range. The first-generation C-Class Coupe has been a success and been instrumental in drawing younger customers to the Mercedes-Benz range and the new model will look to continue this drive towards a younger customer demographic.
