What Car? says...

If life forces you into making a rational car-buying decision when what you really want is a dose of hedonism, you could always consider a Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupé.

Okay, so you don’t get quite the space you’d get in a C-Class saloon. But it does have a reasonable boot and two back seats fit for adults, and draped over them is a stylish profile that will surely sate your decadent side.

It’s 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 C43, and culminate with the bonkers-fast C63 and C63 S.

Read on over the next few pages and we’ll tell you how the C-Class Coupé compares with rivals such as the BMW 4 SeriesAudi A5 and Lexus RC. We’ll also give you our recommendations for which trim and engine to choose.

Once you’ve made your decision, don’t forget to check our New Car Buying section for great deals on tonnes of coupés.
