    Americans will see the C-class coupe in two flavors to start, an entry-level C250 and an upscale C350—the 450-plus-hp, plutonium-flavored C63 AMG coupe comes later. (The C63 was recently revealed—albeit briefly—via Mercedes’ Super Bowl commercial.) Both non-AMG cars’ powertrains are new for this year, and will be shared with the C-class sedan. In the event you've forgotten the specs of the new engines, a quick recap: The C250 will feature a turbocharged and direct-injected 1.8-liter inline-four good for 201 hp and 229 lb-ft. Its bigger-engined brother, the C350 coupe, packs a naturally aspirated, direct-injected 3.5-liter V-6, cranking out 304 hp and 273 lb-ft. As in the sedan, both of these engines will route power only to the rear wheels. The all-wheel-drive C300 4MATIC version is reserved for the sedan.

    In the U.S., both the four and the six will come only with Benz's seven-speed automatic transmission, dashing hopes that the coupe would take up the stick-shift cause from the now-automatic-only C-class sedan. Perhaps as a compromise, both C-class coupes will have paddle shifters on the steering wheel—a feature that's not available on non-AMG C-class sedans. Helping the sporty-driving cause, the C-class coupe will come with the company's Agility Control system, which features adaptive dampers.

    Lots of Standard Features

    Indoors, the C-class coupe is much the same as its four-door sibling. The dash is significantly better than the pre-facelift C-class sedan’s, featuring higher-quality materials and a more stylish layout. Buyers of the C250 will find their interiors trimmed with aluminum, while C350 coupe owners are treated to walnut wood, and can upgrade to snazzy matte-finished ash wood. The C-class coupe is crammed with standard features, many of which are expensive options on the C-class sedan. They include a panoramic sunroof, sport seats, Bluetooth, a 5.8-inch multimedia display, LED daytime running lights, nine airbags (including dual front pelvic airbags), and Benz's Attention Assist system. The C-class coupe also will include Merc's newest-generation COMAND infotainment interface, should buyers stump up to buy the navigation system.

    With all of these toys included, the C-class coupes should have base prices somewhat higher than an equivalent sedan’s when they go on sale in September.

    I wouldn't expect gains as large as the previous 350 V6, but a good 20 whp should be in there.

    The C interior is better but the BMW interior looks better still. The C's interior doesn't look as cheap as it did though.

    I think the C class coupe interior looks more modern than the 3 series coupe. Overall the Benz interior is better; seats etc.
