Posted By: Park Place Motorcars Fort Worth, a Mercedes-Benz Dealer - 2011-11-25
Considering drivers select the C-Class more than any other Mercedes-Benz, the automotive company makes its popular car available as a coupe for the first time. Now you can have your C-Class and an extra helping of sporty, too. Boasting over 2,000 enhancements, the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class cars brilliantly meld sport, sophistication and an independent spirit.
"Regardless of whether you opt for the 2012 C250, C300 or C350, Mercedes-Benz entry-level luxury car boasts precise steering and handling, as well as overall driving dynamics that measure up just fine compared to other sedans and coupes in the segment," writes Edmunds.com in its 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class review. Will the two-door coupe or four-door sedan be your flavor of choice? To help you decide, visit Park Place Motorcars in Dallas, Park Place Motorcars Fort Worth or Park Place Motorcars Grapevine to ask our sales consultants for advice.
Although you have a diversity of flavors in the redesigned 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class sport and luxury cars, what they have in common is what sets them apart. From the new turbocharged C250 to the stnadard 4MATIC all-wheel drive C300 to the 302 hp C350, each C-Class coupe and sedan leads in precision, performance and protection. New engines boost torque and efficiency for quicker footwork with a gentler footprint.
With two new-generation engines for 2012, the C-Class outperforms all others. The 1.8-liter turbo-four of the C250 models and the 3.5-liter C350 V-6 conduct a symphony of innovative technologies to make overachievers out of them. Along with the new lightweight, lightning-fast engines, Mercedes-Benz has reengineered the seven-speed automatic transmission for a more efficient performance and sportier touch.
The C63 AMG lives up to AMG's high-performing brand and theme as one master technician crafts the AMG engine using his hands and race-proven components. When you visit the dealership to see the C63 AMG, ask the sales consultant to open the hood. There, you'll see a true mechanical work of art complete with a plaque bearing the signature of the master technician who crafted the engine.
Safety, of course, remains a top priority as you expect of Mercedes-Benz with the exclusive innovations in the C-Class cars that sharpen its reflexes, and yours. Safety isn't about the number of features, but having purposeful features, such as Attention Assist to help the driver stay alert, Emergency Stability Program (ESP) to keep the vehicle on track and adaptive brakes to ensure a more reassuring and relaxing driving experience.
Park Place Reviews the Mercedes-Benz C-Class
"To those who have never sat behind a three-pointed star, it's hard to communicate the intangibles that come with the experience. Chalk it up to 125 years of engineering or clever marketing, but, like dressing up for dinner at home, there's something special about a Mercedes-Benz that makes even mundane drives seem better," writes Popular Mechanics in its C-Class sedan review. "We spent most of our driving time behind the wheel of a C350 sedan and enjoyed the 3.5-liter V6's ample power and the smoothness of the new seven-speed automatic."
Pick any flavor -- there's a perfect Mercedes-Benz C-Class for you. All of them -- no matter the horsepower, rpm, mph or seconds -- provide a sweet atmosphere inside, meticulous engineering and a delectable driving experience.
