Question My car of the day, Mercedes C- class coupe.

This new C- class coupe is a two-door four seat Mercedes in the finest tradition. To give it a sporty look, the C-class has been lowered by 15 mm and has a more assertive looking AMG line trim. Only four petrol engines are available and one diesel with the cheapest being the 1.5 litre 182 BHP petrol and all of them have an auto gearbox which has been tweaked for quicker gear changes. Inside, the C-class has the latest tech and most probably the best media layout going with a nice looking slender screen. standard kit includes massaging front seats, climate control,ambient lighting, lane departure warning,cruise control, and smartphone integration. Prices will start from just under £37,000 and around £2,000 more than the C-class saloon which make it seem like good value for that extra bit of style. You can imagine the full blown AMG version with that V8 will be the nuts. So being it's a Mercedes it is desirable and a good looking alternative to the BMW 4 series.

Like it?

Lovely design and a good looking car. The inside isn't that great IMO though, but then Mercs never excite me there. It's one of the few cars that would possibly sway me from my A7.

well I have to say I'm bias but had the current AMG C63s coupe since Jan 17 and there is nothing in same price bracket I paid for it I would buy, its a fantastic car, the interior is a nice place as well fantastic seats and comfort on long drives with variable dampers.
I think the face lift C63 has the new shark grill and a few other changes but still the same glorious Twin Turbo V8 its a peach and sounds epic under load
