Today is a scoping new car day. I’m torn on this one, the 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe is stunning… mostly. From the side, back and 3/4 view I can’t help but see a Honda Accord Coupe and while the Accord does look good it doesn’t look great.
Designed to compete against the aging BMW 3 Series Coupe and the Audi A5 I still think the BMW is the most beautiful of the three with the Merc coming in in a close second. I can’t help but compair it to the E Class Coupe and the E Class wins, by far. The engines are good, as you’d expect, an upcoming AMG version would be would be an amazing upgrade and is planned. I
do like this new Mercedes and I’m excited to see how it evolves but now that it’s here in the flesh I’m not as excited as I thought I’d be. Anyhow if you want more of the details hit up the trusted Autoblog.
Oh and scope out the commercial from the Super Bowl.
