Mercedes-Benz C250 Coupe test drive review
Mercedes-Benz Malaysia is working hard to bring their full range of vehicles for Malaysians to own. Starting with this C-Class coupe right up to the sexy looking S 560 Cabriolet……. which is part of the dream car collection from Mercedes Benz Malaysia. This Mercedes Coupe features plenty of high-quality details, its distinctive character is most apparent when you see it in motion…yes it’s a sexy looking coupe.
Sporty & youthful design
As the new entry-level ‘dream car’ into the world of luxury motoring from Mercedes-Benz, the C‑Class Coupe is also a consistent embodiment of the Mercedes-Benz design philosophy where it exhibits an independence of character with a visibly sporty expression and youthfully fresh appeal. The profile of this 2-door coupe partly resembles that of the very popular C‑Class sedan with a striking front end featuring a diamond radiator grille, LED High Performance headlamps, long bonnet and high beltline.
Class act Interior
The occupants enjoy an ambience that, while based on the interior of the C-Class Saloon, offers a fresh interpretation with typical coupe features but with sport seats added with muscular side bolsters and organically integrated head restraints. Automatic belt extenders like with the classic Mercedes W124 CE coupe comes as standard to help the front occupants with buckling up as the coupe doors are quite long.
Arriving with style
You easily get comfortable behind the wheel and once the engine has started you will find the smooth ride from the 211bhp 4-cylinder turbocharged engine entertaining when called on and it will easily have you enjoying your daily commute in this stylish machine, especially when you have it in ‘Sports’ mode.
The steering is light with enough road feel to give the driver some hint of feedback. The spring and damper set-up on this beauty is pretty much spot on; its relatively firm through corners, providing good levels of body control and limited roll. Ride quality is also good, smoothing bumps with authority. As for handling and road manners, there are no issues with this Benz. The large and wide tires on the new stylish AMG wheels grip eagerly on wet or dry surfaces and this coupe offers first-rate front-end grip with predictable understeer during really hard cornering. The new quick shifting 9-speed G-Tronic automatic gearbox is a dream to use and there is hardly a hint of shift and kick down effect even when confronting a quick immediate pickup or emergency slowdown. Use the ‘Sport’ mode and the throttle is more sensitive providing a little more immediate reaction to your requests.
With Mercedes ‘Agility Financing’ available you can drive home this ‘Dream Benz’ and continue your lifestyle spending as long as you deem necessary. You only live once.
