For The Mercedes C-Class Coupe is a conservatively smart compact coupe. The engine range has something for everybody, and the car comes stocked with lots of luxury and safety kit.

Against Fitting 18-inch AMG wheels as standard hurts economy and emissions because of the tyres’ greater rolling resistance. The ride is harsh, rear headroom suffers as a result of the low roofline, and quality and refinement aren’t good enough.

The Mercedes C-Class Coupe is likeable in some ways, but disappointing in others. Refinement, ride comfort and interior quality are particularly disappointing.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

Aside from the standalone C63 AMG models, there are two trims available for the C-Class Coupe. AMG Sport is the entry point, and it provides sporty styling goodies like 18-inch alloys, LED running lights and a sporty AMG bodykit. Luxury kit includes part-leather-effect upholstery and front and rear parking sensors. AMG Sport Plus models have even sportier styling, including red seatbelts and red interior stitching.

Of the mainstream engines available, our favourite is the smooth and powerful V6 petrol in the C350. Yes, it’s expensive to buy and run, but the cheaper four-cylinder engines are disappointingly unrefined. Plus, it’s not hard to see the appeal of having a big V6 in your luxurious coupe.
