Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Expected to make its premiere at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show.

Although the front end looks identical to its 4-door brother, it adopts a coupe roofline that flows into the rear end. The taillights are a new horizontal wrap-around LED-powered set similar in design to the bigger S-Class Coupe, while the lower fascia is updated for a sporty look, complete with a dual exhaust system.

The interior may remain largely identical to the sedan version, save for a few small upgrades that could improve the dynamic appeal. If so, it will retain the award-winning interior with the free-standing COMAND infotainment display paired to a Touchpad controller, 3-spoke multifunction sports steering wheel, ARTICO leather upholstery with contrast stitching, and glossy black center console.

Being based on the new MRA platform, the BMW 4-Series rival will borrow the engine lineup from the C-Class sedan, which includes a range of four cylinder petrol and diesel engines, a 3.0-liter V6 engine in a standard as well as C 450 AMG Sport variant, and a full fledged C63 AMG Coupe powered by the 4.0L V8 (M178) twin turbo in two power states: 476 PS & 650 Nm in the base model and 510 PS & 700 Nm in the S version.

It’s unknown if the new C-Class Coupe will adopt the sedan’s 7G-TRONIC transmission or the upcoming GLC crossover’s 9G-Tronic 9-speed automatic unit.

Mercedes will first unveil the regular and AMG Sport variants this year, followed by the C63 AMG in 2016, reportedly. Given that the demand for 2-door mid-size luxury coupes are weak in India, Mercedes India may not consider bringing it to the country.
