If you are a fan of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class lineup's haute-couture style, class-leading safety, cutting-edge engines, indulgent luxuries and time-tested value, then you will love to hear that the Tri-Pointed star has just put out a new compact C-Class Coupe.
That's right. In case you haven't heard, the energetic-looking variant officially launched last month.
Mercedes-Benz introduced the new coupe to their C-Class lineup to hopefully steal young consumers away from their Blue-and-White-shielded competitor, who already carries a 3-Series sedan and is planning to add a new compact into the mix in April...We needn't name names. You know who we're referring to.
What expectations does Mercedes-Benz have for the new compact C-Class coupe? Well, according to Ernst Lieb, Head of U.S. Operations, Mercedes-Benz, the all-new C-Class coupe (available to drivers in the Henderson, NV area, since September) has the potential to grow overall C-Class sales by up to 20 percent.
The enormity of this growth forecast is underscored by the fact that the new compact C-Class coupe serves to fill the biggest hole in the current Mercedes-Benz lineup, of any model to date. That said. It also represents the first domino of many more changes to come. For, Mercedes-Benz, hopes to not only overthrow the Big L as the top-selling luxury automaker in the U.S., by 2012, but to reclaim the title of the world's largest luxury automaker by 2020.
