2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe Facelift Spotted Testing for the First Time. Facelifted Mercedes-Benz C-Class coupe was caught testing for the very first time, and we are finally blessed with the spy shots. We have seen before how the sedan and estate version look like so it is about time for the coupe to show its nip/tuck result.
2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe Facelift Specifications
Overall, there is nothing striking or surprising in terms of design. This is because the refresh is more focused on the performance and powertrain instead of the styling. But it doesn’t mean that the car looks vanilla without any design improvement. We can spot some changes, but nothing too dramatic.
The spy shots give us a glimpse of the most noteworthy part of the facelift that is the new headlights. The outline is basically the same as the outgoing model, but the new wonder lies inside. The 8 LED projectors inside are completely different with the old one, and as a matter of fact, it bears a strong resemblance to Acura’s iconic Jewel Eye headlight.
The US license plated prototype was only lightly camouflaged on the front bumper, but we can expect some changes on the rear bumper as well. Let’s anticipate it the next time the prototype spotted testing again.
The 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe Facelift spy shots don’t give a good look to the interior. But, the refreshed car definitely will come with more premium look and new cabin materials. The most important new interior elements will include new trim, color options as well as the brand new steering wheel. Speaking of the steering wheel, instead of the old school buttons, it will come with a more modern touch sensitive panel.
Engine: – Hybrid Engine
Judging from the elements near the brake discs on one of the prototype, it seems like the facelifted C-Class coupe will get a hybrid variant. Therefore, the most likely engine to power this refreshed car is the all-new 2.0 L 4-cylinder engine, codenamed M264, that is a part of the company’s new mild hybrid powertrain which will debut in 2017.

The new 4-cylinder engine will be accompanied by the 48-volt electric system and one small electric motor. Mercedes have not said anything yet about the power output figure the engine can generate. However, the Germany automaker once said that it would offer around 100 kW/liter, or can also be translated as 268 HP/272 PS.
Besides M264, it is reported that the new generation inline-six engine in both petrol and diesel form also will join the engine lineup for 2019 C-Class Coupe. Furthermore, it is not confirmed yet. But, we can also expect this car to get some semi-autonomous driving features found in more expensive Mercedes-Benz models.
2019 Mercedes Benz C-Class Coupe Facelift Price and Release Date
New 2019 Mercedes C-Class Coupe will be refreshed in 2018, right after its sedan and wagon siblings. After that, it probably will officially be revealed sometime in the middle of the year. By the time of its debut, it will compete for head to head with the likes of BMW 4 Series. The debut date is still far ahead. So, there are no words yet on the pricing.
