Mercedes-Benz S-class coupe
Last modified: 02/12/14
The two-door coupe will drop the CL name now used for the coupe derived from the S class.

Compared with the outgoing CL, the S-class coupe is about 1.5 inches lower with styling lines that are more sculpted and flowing. It has a bigger and wider grille and a wider panoramic roof that tints from light to dark with the flip of a switch. It has two rows of front and rear LED headlights and a low beltline.

The S-class coupe's wheelbase is unchanged from the CL's 116 inches. But it is more than two inches shorter with a length of 198 inches. It is one inch wider than the CL -- at 75 inches -- but the height of 56 inches is unchanged.

It will compete with the Maserati GranTurismo and the upper end of the growing cadre of luxury vehicles with coupelike styling, including the Audi A7/S7 and the BMW 6 series and 6-series Gran Coupe.

The new S-class coupe makes its debut at next month's Geneva auto show and will go on sale this fall in the United States.
