After introducing an updated C-Class sedan and wagon at the Geneva Motor Show, Mercedes-Bens is now updating the C-Class coupe and cabriolet. Both two-door models receive the same updates, such as improved powertrains, more active safety gear, and revised styling.

The new turbocharged 2.0-liter engine, available for the C300 and C300 4Matic, makes 255 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque, sending power through Mercedes' 9G-Tronic nine-speed automatic transmission. The more-powerful AMG C43 packs a 3.0-liter V6 producing 385 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque. Mercedes claims the C43 coupe accelerates from zero to 60 miles per hour in an estimated 4.5 seconds while the cabriolet is 0.1 seconds slower.

Exterior updates include newly-designed LED headlights, which are now standard and flank a new front bumper. Optional LED Intelligent LED headlights are available for the first time on the C-Class coupe and cabriolet. The rear end features new all-LED taillights and dual exhaust system. Two new colors are also available: Mojave Silver Metallic and Graphite Grey (exclusive for the coupe and cabriolet).

Inside, there is a large, 10.25-inch central media display as standard. Optional is a digital instrument cluster measuring 12.3 inches. The latest-generation COMAND Navgation system is optional. The C-Class coupe and cabriolet feature Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, two USB ports, an SD card reader, and Bluetooth connectivity as standard features.

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class coupe and cabriolet will make its official debut at the New York Auto Show later this month.
