I'm sorry but you fell victim to marketing.
C class platform serves to two coupes; the "cheap looking" C class Coupe and the E class coupe. E class coupe is 100% C class.
CLS was from the first series an E class with a nicer shell; one of the most profitable cars for Mercedes. (very high profit margin).
The new 4Coupe is going to compete with the E class Coupe. The 4Coupe with the "Line option" is going to cost more than the actual 5 series.
The new 2Coupe is going to be moved upmarket and priced only some 2.500 $ under the 3 series sedan.
