New Mercedes C-Class Coupe, Estate & C63 AMG: exclusive pics

Our exclusive pictures show the full range of 2014 Mercedes C-Class variants, including the Coupe and Estate

The new Mercedes C-Class has already been revealed in saloon form, but we're yet to see official pics of the Estate, Coupe, AMG, Hybrid and LWB versions. However our exclusive images in the gallery above give us a first look at how the new model variants will look when they hit the showrooms.

• Full details on the new Mercedes C-Class 2014, including price, specs and release date

Mercedes C-Class 2014 Coupe and Cabriolet

The new Mercedes C-Class Coupe will be the firm's answer to the new BMW 4 Series coupe, with a flowing two-door body style and a wide range of engines. Our exclusive pics of the new model show that the family resemblance to the new Mercedes S-Class will remain for the coupe, with the new model getting the same creased bodywork, pulled back LED headlights and swooping roofline as the larger S-Class Coupe, which was revealed recently.

The next Mercedes C-Class Cabriolet will be based on the two-door Coupe, ditching the stylish roof for a convertible fabric top so that buyers can enjoy the win in their hair. The Coupe and Cabriolet models are likely to launch at around the same time, and both will probably appear in 2015 after the saloon has gone on sale.

2014 Mercedes C-Class Estate

We've already seen some spy shots of the Mercedes C-Class Estate, which give us a decent idea of how it will look, but these exclusive pictures are our best look yet at the practical C-Class variant. The headline figure for the C-Class Estate will be the boot space, and we expect it to exceed 500 litres, which would be a decent increase over the 485-litre boot in the current car.

Talking about the estate, product manager Iris Schleicher told Auto Express: “We tried to make the new wagon look like more of a lifestyle car, more stylish. It’s bigger, too, but we’re trying to ensure it doesn’t look as practical as it is.”

New Mercedes C63 AMG

We've spotted the high performance Mercedes C63 AMG during on-road testing. This flagship model will get a twin-turbo V8 with around 450bhp - and as our image shows, it's likely to get a sporty styling package as well. The large air intakes on the front of the car give it an aggressive look, and it's likely to get large exhaust pipe tips at the rear as well.

Mercedes C-Class LWB

It's unlikely to make it to UK showrooms, but thanks to the Chinese market there will also be a long wheelbase version of the new C-Class. Our image predicts that it will look very similar to the standard saloon, but with a lot of extra space in the rear. With the lessons learned from the S-Class and S-Class LWB, it seems likely that the back of this model will be a great place to be while the car is on the move, with a wide range of tech and comfortable seats.
