2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C250 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 7A)
Just picked up my new 2012 C-250 coupe yesterday. I can say that the photos of this vehicle do not do it justice. This car looks beautiful. Way better in person. The interior materials are top notch. picked blk/blk with harmon stereo, nav, heated seats etc. Some of the reviews i've read while doing my research talked about this vehicle being slow or sluggish of the line. NOT TRUE. The car defults to (E) or economy mode every time you start it. You have to push the sport mode button. (E) mode starts you in 3rd gear for fuel economy. sport mode starts you in 1st with higher shift points.
In sport this car is a rocket. Plenty of power. So if magazine car testers are reading this. PUSH (S)!!
.....It is always nice to see a positive (and parallel) review.
My CPO 2012 1.8 turbo coupe is approaching the one year (of ownership) mark. Ab-so-lutely no issues. A round trip of 450 miles to Monterrey (CA) calculated (not the vehicle computer) at just under 35 MPG.
The little 4-cylinder - while no dragster - has more than adequate performance for this sailor.
Sure, I don't drive it much (I feel guilty: the car looks so damn good - it's really not me!!). Drove it about 4500 miles total during the prior 12 months.
I'd buy it again.
