Here’s the Mercedes-Benz CSC Concept revealed in China Auto Show that will hit the markets in 2013. A very well-designed machine but its reception in China was not too well. I heard many people around are saying it was too small, and they are right, a Benz should be Big.
Power comes from a 2.0 turbo with 211hp, mated to a 7speed dual clutch transmission. Not a big engines, but at least it isn’t something hybrid or electric.
The Mercedes-Benz CSC four-door coupe is based on Benz’ MFA platform that underpins the A and B-class. Top of the line will be a Mercedes-Benz CSC 25 AMG which will get a nasty 2.0 turbo 4-cylinder with 350hp and 450nm.
Base car will be the CSC 180 with a 122hp 1.6. Mercedes-Benz doesn’t make the current A and B in China and it won’t make the next generation locally either. Both the A and B are available as imports but therefore expensive.
