The Parkers Verdict

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe is a handsome car, and one of the biggest-selling coupes on the market. Given its attractive styling and the sheer completeness of its safety equipment, this success is clearly warranted. Clearly, it’s a coupe with its heart set on comfort over precision dynamics, but it’s none the worse for that.

With its improved engine line-up, and updated tech via its 2018 facelift, the C-Class Coupe has desirability on its side, and looks set to continue being a substantial success for its maker. It’s not perfect, with an interior that lags behind the Audi A5 in some aspects of its material quality, and the BMW 4 Series for dynamic precision.

But overall, it’s a compelling proposition in this market sector, and probably the best overall compromise available at the moment, if its owner is looking for comfort and an easy drive. The other area of disappointment are the uninspiring engines, AMG models aside. They may well be economical and punchy, but the four-cylinder cars sound rough, even if they are well insulated.

However, the C 43 and 63 performance models, especially in C 63 S guise, lead the class thanks to its blend of excitement and comfort for everyday driving.
