2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C250 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 7A)
I concur with the other reviewer, this is one fun car. I started my car search wanting a V8 engine and a lot of horsepower. I'm not wealthy so I couldn't justify buying a $60+ thousand dollar AMG when the $40,000 C250 had an adequate, even surprising, amount of power. And reasonable gas mileage to boot. I suggest the Lighting Package, I love the techno looking LED and bi-xenon lighting. I almost never carry more than one passenger so the coupe body style was great for me. But I
tried the back seat and fit just fine, plenty of leg room, adequate head room. I just picked mine up about 6 hours ago and I didn't want to get out of it.
Peppy acceleration, luxury features, reasonable gas mileage, quiet cabin, panoramic roof, easy to use COMAND system.
6 month follow-up: the more I drive it the more I like it! 27mpg on my last combined city/highway fill-up and low 30's on long freeway trips. I seek out cloverleaf freeway interchanges, this car sticks to the road like glue. I'm currently working in a small town in Mississippi so I'm one-of-a-kind in the area and get loads of looks. Just a touch of vanity, I enjoy being "that guy in the Mercedes".
