The C-Class Sports Coupe is an attractive alternative to the BMW 3-Series Compact - or more recently the BMW 1-Series. It was a bit if a break of tradition for Mercedes-Benz when it was launched in 2001.

The C-Class Sports Coupe is an attractive alternative to the BMW 3-Series Compact - or more recently the BMW 1-Series. It was a bit if a break of tradition for Mercedes-Benz when it was launched in 2001. It was the first time that there had been a coupe in the line-up. It’s still a fresh-looking design, good to drive and has the kind of cachet three-pointed star buyers crave. As such it commands surprisingly high values on the used market. Even early, tatty examples will set you back more than you may expect.
