Style, much looks, will only get you so Unless one is completely facile, will have to count at point. With rare sport coupes have projected greater style their more practical counterparts. If not the stuff of which are made — cue some hyper-exotic car here — they still a higher rung in the automotive order. So, a stylish sport with substance is something should be coveted.

I believe the Mercedes ’ C 350 4Matic is worthy of such desirability. coming to market for the 2012 year, the C-Class Coupe is a take on the still-buff C sedan, a coupe instead of the previous hatchback body, with front and rear overhangs, a silhouette and long wheelbase combine with the standard AMG package to give the coupe a assertive profile. The availability of widely regarded 4Matic system — the C 350 is also offered rear-wheel drive — lends practicality to a car already brimming personality. It also makes the C competitive, a prudent decision on the of the automaker considering the car’s two-door rivals are the even-better-looking A5 Coupe and the new-for-2014 BMW 4 Series

Mercedes says the C 350 4Matic to 100 kilometres an hour in 6.2 seconds.

In words, there’s more enough urge to get where you to go without being ridiculous it. Having the 4Matic drivetrain 70 kilograms to the sports coupe, weighs in at a still trim kilograms. There’s little to the added traction from a standpoint; Mercedes says the C 350 accelerates to 100 kilometres an hour in 6.2 only 2/10ths slower the rear-drive version.

Yet, Mercedes is not insensitive to the economy side of things. The car with an Eco stop/start feature as as a driving monitor in the cluster that evaluates driving — with Acceleration, Constant and bar graphs — in order to promote fuel efficiency. In mostly use I averaged 11.3 litres per 100 with the C, not terrible considering the engine.

The V6 is bolted to a seven-speed transmission with paddle While the self-shift mode normally provide an element of that’s wholly in keeping the car’s intent, upshifts and are accomplished through a side-to-side of the lever instead of forward and This is counter-intuitive at best and as a reason as any to leave the console in Drive.

The 2013 Mercedes-Benz C350 comes with an Eco stop/start as well as a driving monitor in the display that evaluates style.

One of the best dynamic features is its and handling. The Coupe comes with Agility Control otherwise known as an amplitude-dependent system. When driving at speeds with low shock impulses, damping is automatically for improved comfort. When absorber impulses increase, as high-speed cornering, damping is up for greater stability. Working in with the MacPherson struts and independent suspension setup, the C 350 a ride that strikes a balance between sport and

Given the Coupe’s raked window and wedge shape, visibility is iffy. The $4,000 package helps alleviate problem by including Parktronic parking guidance, an audio/visual that lets you know if getting too close to something, backing up or going forward. The also upgrades the audio to the previously mentioned harman/kardon system with satellite and adds a media interface, system and DVD changer.

Also of consideration is the $800 Driving Package, more for the Passive Spot Assist than the (vibrating steering wheel) Lane Keeping Assist.

The phrase I can think of to describe the C 350 is “efficiently dynamic.” Read that what you will, but I see as a positive attribute, one that a carefully measured blend of pleasure and sophistication.
