  • Fast and sounds great
  • Ride is firm and engine isn't as characterful as previous C63's

Interior and tech

First impressions are of a very solid car that oozes the sort of quality you’d hope for from the three-pointed star.

The interior is classy and more interesting than anything BMW or Audi can currently muster. The steering-column mounted gear selector is an acquired taste, but it does leave the broad transmission tunnel attractively uncluttered. Don’t bother prodding, pinching or swiping the surface of the huge tablet-like screen however, you’ll only leave greasy fingerprints.

Like the C63 saloon, the Coupé is a fine place to be, its interior looking and feeling premium, with plenty of brightwork and detailing to lift it above the equivalent M car. Optional sports seats add some attitude - and support – but they aren’t very soft and highlight the car’s firm ride.
