The Mercedes C-Class Coupe is a stylish slick-looking executive two-door sports car with a smart interior, refined ride and dynamic handling. It's an excellent-looking coupe, but the boot isn't particularly big, and the rear seats are pretty cramped.
Rivals to the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe include the Audi A5, BMW 4 Series and Lexus RC.
Our Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe review covers:
The Mercedes C-Class Coupe is a striking executive car with a two-door sports car style guarantee to turn heads on the road. The design boasts a perfectly toned exterior with a newly shaped front bumper and the diamond radiator grille standard on all models.
Inside the C-Class Coupe, you get a high-quality plush interior with all seats sculpted to be comfortable as possible. As for practicality, it can't match the space you get in a C-Class saloon, but it has a reasonable boot space and two back seats that will accommodate most passengers.
The Mercedes C-Class Coupe has a great interior with a classy design that doesn't try to look overly sporty. The dashboard's metal air vents and the sleek metal switches look like they belong in the top-of-the-line Mercedes S-Class limousine. These stylish features make the Mercedes' interior feel more luxurious than you get in an Audi or BMW.
The 10.3-inch infotainment screen in the Mercedes C-Class Coupe looks excellent, but it isn't as sleek as the dual-screen futuristic display found in the smaller Mercedes A-Class hatchback. The 12.3-inch digital driver's display, an optional feature, is simple to set up and replaces the traditional analogue dials with a customizable display of your speed, sat-nav directions, and media playback information directly in front of your eyes.
Two trim levels are available, including the AMG Line Edition and AMG Line Night Ed Premium Plus.
The AMG Line Edition trim level comes with 18-inch alloys, LED headlights, a 10.25-inch display screen and keyless go.
The Night Edition comes with 19-inch alloys, black styling details, a panoramic sunroof, a 360-degree camera and a Burmester stereo.
Mercedes offers the C-Class Coupe in a range of petrol and diesel options.
For petrol customers, there's a 2.0-litre four-cylinder unit with two power outputs, a 181bhp in the C 200 or 242bhp in the C 300. The diesel options are a 2.1-litre engine with two power outputs, a 168bhp in the C 220d and 201bhp in the C 250d.
The Mercedes C-Class Coupe beats its rivals for driving comfort. Compared to the Audi A5 and BMW 4 Series, it's more comfortable even without the optional air suspension and has very little wind or tyre noise at motorway speeds.
However, the BMW is more enjoyable to drive handling-wise, but if comfort is your primary focus, the C-Class Coupe is an excellent leasing option.
Prices for the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe start from £41,445.00 OTR* or to lease from £512.49 per month.
