Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 38 - 68 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Running costs are relatively low thanks to efficient new engines, the best of the bunch is the C220 CDi and the C250CDi as they both average 57.6mpg. Servicing can be expensive at Mercedes dealers but remember regular servicing should keep costs down in the long-term.

The greenest cars on the Coupe range are the diesel cars. Both the C220CDi and the C250CDi are neck and neck with emissions of 128g/km of CO2, meaning both cars fall in to VED band D. The manual gearboxes come with Eco stop/start systems which has helped bring these figures down.

The C-Class Coupe certainly feels well-built and is finished with some high quality materials. As ever, regular maintenance and adherence to servicing should keep your car free of trouble and more importantly keep you motoring.
