Style….Luxury….Comfort…..those three words are about all you need to know about the Mercedes C-Class automobile and the 2012 C-Class is everything you could ask for and much more.

New for 2012 is the coupe model, a much more affordable two-door and yet nothing was sacrificed with regards to styling and comfort.  The interior on all C-Class models has been re-designed and is much more appealing with higher quality materials giving it a more pleasing appearance and feel.

The engines are worth noting.  The C250 has a turbocharged four-cylinder for great get up and go and yet better mileage figures.  The C300 has all-wheel drive and the C350 now offers 302 horsepower.  Last but not least is the C63 AMG with an impressive 451 horsepower.

All C-Class models are offered in two-door and four-door and all come with such a dizzying array of standard features that any driver would be impressed and proud to drive them.  Are you looking for a sunroof?  Then the C250 can give it to you.  How about 17-inch wheels?  All the models have these as standard.  Impressive sound systems are in all trims as are automatic headlights, wipers, cruise control, climate control, power seats and many other features.

Mercedes has always been about quality craftsmanship.  When you drive a Mercedes you are supposed to feel special as though the world were your oyster and meant for you alone to shuck it.  The 2012 C-Class models all provide that special feeling of living in the higher echelons of society.

What about replacement parts?  It makes no difference that these are made in Germany; there are so many of them available in the United States that you will have no problem finding the part you need whether it be a transmission, engine, radiator or fuel pump, and you can bet the replacement parts will be of the same high quality as the car you are driving.  Another nice thing to remember is that quality recycled auto parts are available in most reliable salvage yards so you have no worries should you need maintenance.

The name is Mercedes C-Class.  While other automobile manufacturers sacrifice a little here and a little there for sales, Mercedes continues to show the competition how cars should really be made.  Competition comes fast and heavy in the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series and Infiniti G but for our money there is none better than the Mercedes C-Class.
