The 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe exudes a certain exuberance and design quality seen in much more expensive models despite being at the lower end of the spectrum in the German automaker's lineup. There’s definitely a sporting connotation to the design, with even some BMW styling cues thrown in, especially around the glasshouse. Under the pretty sheet metal should be...

Using direct injection and a turbocharger to generate as-yet unstated power, the new four-cylinder C-Class, dubbed the C250 Sport, is rated at a combined 24 mpg...
