The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupé has been revealed ahead of its debut at this year's Geneva motor show.

The two-door coupé, which will replace the CL at the top of the carmaker's range, has details – such as the three-dimensional diamond radiator grille, angular headlamps and large air inlets – similar to the sedan. With a wheelbase of 2,945mm, the Coupé is 5,027mm long, with a width of 1,899mm and a height of 1,411mm.

Aesthetically, it's mostly similar to the concept version seen at last year's Frankfurt motor show and differentiates itself from the saloon. Like the CL, the doors are frameless and lack B-pillars.

Inside, it's been toned down slightly from the concept version, but is still distinctive. The door panels' wave pattern hasn't made the jump, while the power seat controls that were integrated into the door-mounted speaker are now separated.

The dashboard is divided into two distinct layers, made possible by moving the front passenger airbag to a new location. It features a two-part TFT screen, which incorporates the instruments, SatNav and infotainment functions. This can be controlled via the optional touchpad, with different finger gestures used to access the various functions.
