A few days before the start of the Frankfurt Motor Show 2019, Mercedes introduced the updated two-door Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe and S-Class Cabriolet 2019-2020. In addition to the basic models, the German manufacturer showed sports modifications of the S63 AMG and S65 AMG – both of them in the open and closed body versions. Thus, the Mercedes C-Class family was replenished with six new versions, which made up the company debuting in April sedan . The launch of the European sales of the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class coupe and convertible is scheduled for early 2019, and new products will also appear in Russia around the same time. Ruble prices and complete sets of new models, as well as an exact list of versions for our market, will appear closer to the release date.
Features of design of two-door Mercedes
The coupe and the C-class convertible, in general, were updated in the same scenario as the related sedan, but two-doors still have their own nuances of exterior decoration. One of the differences lies in the configuration of the head optics – if the four-door versions of Mercedes S-Class front lights are equipped with triple ribbon navigation lights, then two-door in their place are either single strips, or a scattering of crystals (depending on the configuration).

The fodder of all two-door “esks” after restyling is decorated with the newest organic light-emitting diode (OLED) lanterns. This technology is used for the first time in premium German brand cars, although Audi has already succeeded on this front, having equipped with the latest Audi A8 optics. The essence of innovation lies in the fact that a special layer of organic material is applied to the glass with a thin layer. Several segments are formed from it, providing a more uniform and pleasant glow. In each of the two rear lights of the coupe and Mercedes-Benz cabriolet, there are 33 LEDs, the brightness of which varies depending on the strength of the brake pedal and the time of day.
