Car: 2017 Mercedes C-Class Coupe
Trim: AMG C63 S
Current price: $68,548 (MSRP: ~$76K+)
While the interior of the C63 S is absolutely beautiful, the exterior didn’t necessarily meet our expectations. We had the inevitable mindset that this C63 S was just an imperfect S63 in terms of the exterior design language. For us, it was impossible to not think of the S63 perfection that Mercedes could have achieved.
Sportiness (*Situational*): 9/10
The C63 S comes equipped with a mean AMG 4.0L V8 BiTurbo engine that pushes out 503 HP and 516lb/ft of torque. Mercedes claims a 0-60 time of 3.8 seconds. *The rainy conditions and wet roads really limited our abilities to push this car to its limits.* As a result, there was no traction but plenty of wheel spin! If you watch the POV, Aaron could still confidently attack corners in Sport+ mode. The AMG engineering is very solid as there was no body roll, a stiff sport suspension, and sharp handling—no surprise for an AMG product. We only wish rain hadn’t been an issue so we could’ve really pushed this C63 S.
Yes, you read that right. Even though the interior is absolutely gorgeous, the drive in comfort mode was just awful. Due to the tires' dimensions, we believe this is what contributed to the rough ride.
The infotainment system in the Mercedes Benz was quite complicated to figure out. But we are looking forward to trying it.
With a gas mileage of 17/23 mpg, expect a lot of trips to gas stations after driving it to the limits. Amongst its competitors, the C63 has the worst gas mileage.
The not so distinct exterior but semi-luxurious interior inhibits the value of this Mercedes product. Although the performance is absolutely amazing, this C63 S unfortunately comes standard in terms of luxury. We wish the luxury aspect was more significant considering the huge price tag.
