The Top Gear car review:Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe
For:Desirable and smart alternative to the battery-farmed BMW 4-Series
Against:Still lacks the outright dynamism and driver appeal of its Munich rival
What is it?
Well, it’s not the new CLK. And it’s definitely not the new CLC sports coupe. No, it’s a riposte to BMW’s 4 Coupe and the Audi A5. A two-door C-Class Coupe that no longer hides in the gaps but takes the big Germans head on. A strict four-seater with smooth grace on its mind and a stable of engines all built for that single purpose. This is no pant-bothering sports coupe, but a relaxing, mooching take on the two-door mid-sized executive coupe formula.
