Historically, Mercedes products have enjoyed genetic markers that distinguish the brand. Bank vault construction, sumptuous seats and Baroque trim flourishes are descriptors that come to mind. Even blindfolded, you could climb into any Mercedes and tell that you weren’t in a BMW or a Lexus. But along with the Mercedes positives tagged a number of negatives, like weightiness, complexity, and dulled reflexes that drove potential customers into competitors’ showrooms. Mercedes has answered many of those issues by redesigning their C Class Coupe for 2012.

From the outside, the new Coupe is distinguished by the deftness of its visual language. Mercedes stylists have concocted a benchmark treat, with swooping roofline and crisp flank creases emphasizing the car’s low 55.8 inch height. There’s a delicacy inherent in the new coupe’s design that has been absent from Mercedes products since the SL 230 debuted nearly half a century ago. The lighter touch is also evident once you slip inside the cabin. The standard front sports seats are less monumental than before, more cosseting than ever. Though reduced in visual mass, the driver’s seat offers 10-way power adjustment, 4 modes of lumbar support, and 3 memory settings (for seat, mirror and steering wheel position).

  • Quiet and comfortable on the freeway
  • Standard “Sports Grille” looks great
  • Good gas mileage


  • Awkward iPod integration
  • Need to buy several options to fix flaws
  • Slightly numb steering

As the middle child in the C-Class model line, the C350 fills the niche between the base model C300 and the mighty C63 AMG. Like any middle child, it’s easy for the C350 to be overlooked between its thrifty, cheaper sibling and its steroid-using big brother. Sibling rivalry aside, the C350 manages to stand out as a compelling option in the C-class lineup.
