Review

The Mercedes C-Class looks swish and the plug-in hybrid models offer really low CO2 emissions. There are roomier and more comfortable rivals, though

get the best price

On top of a whopping 4.0-litre V8, the C63 S gets an electronic limited-slip differential, an aggressive bodykit, a sports exhaust with four tailpipes, 19in alloy wheels, Nappa leather, adaptive LED headlights, cruise control and electrically adjusted heated front sports seats. If that’s not enough, various packs and options are available to ramp up the luxury.

This 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 produces a mighty 503bhp, enough for 0-62mph in just 4.1sec. It sounds fantastic whether you’re pottering around or accelerating hard, and is even more economical than the Giulia QV.
