With its Concept Style Coupé, appearing at this year’s Auto China, Mercedes-Benz will be making a convincing statement in favour of avant-garde design among sporty executive coupés.
This four door breath-taking coupe is expressive, provocative and powerful with features that include striking headlamps, the new four cylinder turbo-charged petrol engine and the all-wheel drive system 4MATIC.
Innovative headlamps of the Concept Style Coupé shine red in standby mode and are reminiscent of the intimidating eyes of a predatory animal. The Coupé also features frameless side windows and has no B-pillar.
The bonnet, with its powerdomes is set right into the front end assembly, as well as its diamond-look grille, which follows through on design cues set by the Concept A-CLASS.
Indicators, when activated are another special feature, with individual elements lighting up one after another in a “Mexican wave” effect.
The interior opens up to reveal taut, expressively sculptured surfaces and the centre console flows back in a long continuous wave from the instrument panel.
The design of the air vents in the instrument panel evoke an aircraft jet engine. As in the Concept A-CLASS they are backlit and change colour according to the temperature set by the occupants for the climate control system.
Sporty driving dynamics coupled with exemplary efficiency are the hallmarks of the engine of the Concept Style Coupé. Powerful wheel-hub drive is provided by the 2.0-litre version of the new petrol engine generation with 211 hp, combined here with the efficient 4MATIC all-wheel drive system and the 7G-DCT dual clutch automatic transmission.
This car will be available in the UK market to lease and purchase.
Mercedes: unmistakable styling.
