Mercedes-Benz is giving the entire 2019 C-Class lineup some sportier upgrades. We’ve already seen the updated 2019 C-Class sedan and now Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the updates to the 2019 C-Class Coupe and Cabriolet. All the updated C-Class models will debut next week at the New York Auto Show.
For starters the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe and Cabriolet get a new 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 255 horsepower, an increase in 14 hp, and 273 lb-ft of torque. The four-cylinder is mated to a 9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic transmission. If you step up to the C 43 AMG you’ll get a 3.0-liter V6 engine that now produces 385 hp, an increase of 23 hp, and 384 lb-ft. The new C 43 Coupe accelerates from a 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds and the Cabriolet in 4.6 seconds. All-wheel drive is available on the C300, but it’s standard on the C 43 models.
On the outside the 2019 C-Class Coupe and Cabriolet get updated front and rear fascias. At the front there’s a new bumper and the LED headlamps have a been redesigned. For the first time, the 2019 C-Class is available with LED Intelligent headlamps with Ultra Wide high beams. At the rear the exhaust system has been tweaked and there are new LED taillamps.
