If life forces you into making a rational car-buying decision when what you really wanted was a dose of hedonism, you could always consider a Mercedes C-Class Coupe?
Okay, so you don’t get quite the space you’d get in a C-Class saloon. But there are two back seats fit for adults, with a reasonable boot, and draped over them is a stylish profile that will surely sate your decadent side.
It’s also available with a range of fuel-efficient diesel and petrol engines, as well as some madcap versions, particularly the Mercedes-AMG performance models. These start with the quick C 43, and culminate with the bonkers-fast C 63 and C 63 S.
Read on over the next few pages and we’ll tell you how the C-Class Coupé compares to rivals like the BMW 4 Series, Audi A5 and Lexus RC. We’ll also give you our recommendations for which of the trim levels and engines to choose.
