HARD on the heels of releasing prices of the latest C-Class saloon and estate models, Mercedes-Benz has revealed spec details and prices of Cabriolet and Coupe versions of the refreshed range.

Just one trim level - AMG Line - will be on offer with a choice of three petrol and one diesel engines at prices starting from £37,620 for the entry-level C 200 AMG Line Coupé, while the C 200 AMG Line Cabriolet starts at £41,439.

The C 200 will come with a 184hp, 1.5-litre petrol engine with EQ Boost, available in either rear-wheel drive or - for the coupé only - 4MATIC all-wheel-drive. EQ Boost uses a 48-volt onboard network with a belt-driven starter/alternator and adds 14 hp to the car's overall output. It can achieve up to 46.3 mpg and emits 140 g/km of CO on its standard 18-inch wheels.

The C 220 d uses a new two-litre diesel engine with an output of 194 hp and 400 Nm of torque, while emitting 121 g/km of CO - depending on wheel size - and achieving up to 61.4 mpg. The Cabriolet can achieve up to 58.9 mpg and emits 126 g/km.

The C 300 has a two-litre petrol engine which generates 254 hp and 370 Nm of torque. It can cover the 0 to 62 mph sprint in six seconds and has a top speed of 155 mph. CO emissions start at 147 g/km and it can achieve up to 44.1 mpg on the combined cycle. At the moment this engine is only available in the Coupé - the C 300 Cabriolet will join the range later in the year.

At the top of the range is the blisteringly quick AMG C 43 4MATIC which has a 390hp, three-litre, biturbo, V6 petrol engine. It can sprint from 0 to 62 mph in just 4.7 seconds - 4.8 for the Cabriolet - and has an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph. The Coupé can achieve up to 29.7 mpg and emits 217 g/km, while the Cabriolet delivers 29.1 mpg and emits 223 g/km.

All models come with a nine-speed automatic transmission as standard.

Standard equipment includes a 10.25-inch media display, 18-inch alloy wheels, keyless start, mirror package, LED headlights, sports suspension and DAB radio.

The AMG C 43 comes as standard with a performance exhaust system, 18-inch alloy wheels and ride control sports suspension.

As ever there's a lengthy list of optional comfort, convenience, safety and dynamic packages to tempt buyers. Dealers are taking orders now with first deliveries expected in July.
