Performance. German. These are three of the top for anyone looking to purchase an luxury sports coupe. One isn’t likely to pop up, however, is


1. An all-new for 2012, the C-Class Coupe standard with a turbocharged 4-cylinder making 201 hp and 229 lb-ft of

2. Important stats include a 7.1 0-60 time and fuel of 21 mpg city and 31 mpg highway.

3. Compared to the the coupe weighs 100 lbs more and 1.5-inches of headroom.

4. C250 pricing starts at $37,220.

into account the first qualities, the new Meredes-Benz C250 is a solid competitor. With a perspective and a more open however, it’s hardly the choice.

Powerful it can be, with an 3.5-liter V6 engine that now direct injection and makes 302 hp and 273 of torque. Our test car, is the C250, which sports an turbocharged 1.8-liter 4-cylinder


a modest 201 hp the C250 can still hit 60 mph in 7.1 and when pushed feels thanks in part to 229 lb-ft of at just 2200 rpm.

It has a nice exhaust note revved out, though considerably less appealing the sort of normal driving Merc buyers will do. In it sounds a good bit like a engine thanks in part to the system and overall, the coarseness of the is simply unacceptable for a car wearing the star badge. That’s not to say a shouldn’t have a 4-cylinder just not this one.

town the mixture of a turbo and the seven-speed automatic transmissions (no is available) makes for quite a in power delivery. The standard drive mode program is to here too. Push the button and the C250 is decidedly entertaining. In fact, we’d you hit that Sport button time you get behind the wheel.

Improved fuel economy is the upside to this efficiency-minded While the V6 gets a 19/28 mpg and 22 mpg combined, the C250 achieves mpg or 25 mpg combined.

Hampering both economy and performance is an odd statistic, the coupe measuring in at 100 lbs heavier the sedan.


Behind the wheel get considerably less coarse, soft leathers and the choice of or (preferably) aluminum trim. An model for 2012, the Coupe is with same cabin is an update on the sedan. Included in is a 4.5-inch color display the main gauges to show info and other vehicle while a 5.8-inch screen atop the dash and allows for of numerous vehicle functions the audio system to Bluetooth either voice commands, the control knob, or steering mounted controls.

As a whole, the cabin is undeniably though at the same time short of any wow factor. Plus, due to a roof height than the it can feel cramped. A standard glass roof, which pour plenty of light the cabin, does help to cramped headroom less

Adding to the luxurious experience in our model is the $1,750 full seating package and the $1,995 Package with heated seats, an upgraded Harman audio system, SiriusXM and an iPod interface. Taking it an step further is a $2,790 package that adds a camera and Navigation in a larger display screen. Additional include an $850 lane-tracking with blind spot and lane keeping assist, a keyless access system push button ignition things that should be on every Mercedes product) run you $650.

Delivering the max level of enjoyment in this model is a Dynamic Handling Package a stiffer steering wheel paddle shifters and an upgraded with adjustable damping that firm up when you the sport button.

While quite the handling it’s a first for Mercedes and who place priority on performance should also stick to and buy BMW. What the Mercedes best is deliver a smooth and ride, though even the silent Mercedes interior mask the unbecoming 4-cylinder. it’s up to speed though, the settles in and like a true the C250 Coupe will calm and relaxed on the highway, the fact that it thinks the limit sign reads 50% than it does.


who see it fly by will undoubtedly follow its lines lustfully, much the cutesy and unsuccessful C-Class (axed in 2005). While by all identical to the sedan head-on, the low profile is a handsome one and looks smart in the Lunar Blue of our test car, contrasted just enough brightwork, appropriately sized 17-inch and perhaps most importantly, big grille and Mercedes-Benz logo.

That badge is an important one on the helping cover up the rather 4-cylinder while justifying the steep asking price.

equipped models can run up to the $45,000 though the C250 Coupe at a more reasonable (or so it seems)

Compared to the BMW 328i Coupe not far off, and the engine certainly has its economy advantages over the Bimmer. Still, a new 3 Series two is on its way (reportedly badged as the 4 Series) and as all but guaranteed to share its engines the sedan, look for similar economy numbers with more power — around 240 hp and 260 of torque.

Those who can put aside brand snobbery and who can take a to the stylings of Infiniti will be at the results. In place of performance, and German is performance, luxury, and more performance.

As impressed as neighbors are certain to be with the new in your driveway, for an additional it’s possible create a larger feeling of satisfaction by an Infiniti G37 Coupe — a car boasts 129 more horsepower (an of 64%).


A push by Mercedes to on the 3 Series Coupe, the C250 is well-executed from a packaging and dynamics standpoint. In a bid to keep up increasingly strict fuel and emissions standards, however, the is a dud.
