Spy Shots: Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sports Coupe
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sport Coupe never really caught on here in the US, and it was ultimately dumped from the automaker's Stateside lineup. It has lived on in Europe, however, and it will be updated to bring it closer in appearance to the all-new W204 C-Class sedan. The latest spy shot , posted by a member at GermanCarZone, shows a mildly disguised prototype at a filling station.
As you can see, the new-gen C-Class face has been applied, but since the coupe will continue to be built on the old platform (W203), the rest of the car's outward appearance is basically identical to the old model (shown at right). This is about as basic a facelift as you can get, and from the look of it, the C-Class Sport Coupe should remain unlamented in the US even after Europe gets the "new" car.
