Although its not something that is really hot off the production line, FifthGear decided to take the Mercedes C Class Coupe out for a test drive an see if all the tweaks and modifications that have been applied to it, make it an overall better car.
Just like the four door version, the C Class Coupe features nearly 2000 changes/improvements when compared to the previous model, plus the car now comes with the adaptive agility control suspension as standard.
The model shown in this review, the C350, extracts its juices from a 3.5-litre petrol V6 which produces 306 HP and enables nought to 60 mph sprint times of just 6.0 seconds flat. Top speed for this version is 155 mph, but most importantly its combined fuel economy is 40 mpg (UK rating).
According to FifthGear these figures make the engine inside the C350 Coupe a class leader, and if you compare its power and fuel consumption to what rivals like the BMW 3 Series Coupe and the Audi A5 return, then you will see that they are right.
Its interior is also better than the BMW’s and just as good as the Audi’s while its price is also reasonable (C350 Coupe costs from 38,000 GBP).
In conclusion the new Mercedes C Class Coupe is the "best of the bunch" until BMW and Audi update their corresponding models, and you should follow the jump and hit play in order to find out more reasons why FifthGear thinks that.
