Before the droptop arrives however, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe will hit the market and according to German sources, it could be revealed in December next year.
While details about the new C-Class Coupe remain scarce, indications suggest that it will be wider and lower than the previous-gen C-Class Coupe.
