Mercedes unveils new Concept Style Coupe
Mercedes will reveal a new Concept coupe at the Beijing Motor Show next week.
The new four door Concept Style Coupe (CSC) is slightly akin to a few models, including the Concept A-class and the F800 Style Concept.
From the outside the CSC offers a slanted coupe roof line complete with body contours on its bonnet and doors. It also features 21-inch alloy wheels, a diamond style design grille and indicator 'piano style' headlights.
These headlights shine red in standby mode and offer a line of blue lights that shine in succession, hence piano-like. In the rear it offers a dual flow exhaust with one tailpipe at each end of the rear bumper.
Inside, designers have removed the cars B pillar, giving it a roomier feel. The CSC also features a panoramic glass roof.
The dashboard has received a lot of attention to detail, featuring neon detailing which change from blue to yellow to red depending on air flow. The dashboard also features an integrated iPod unit.
The upholstery features neon green piping and top-stitching, included on its instrument panel, steering wheel and seats. The instrument panel also features a white leather finish.
Under the bonnet the CSC uses a 2.0-litre turbocharged four cylinder petrol engine developing 211bhp. This powertrain is matched with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and is said to give a 0-60mph sprint time of under seven seconds.
Alongside the 2.0-litre petrol is an all-wheel drive 4MATIC system, which offers a range of driving modes for different environments.
A production version of the Mercedes Concept Style Coupe is expected to launch sometime in 2014.
