Meet the facelifted C-Class Coupe. It looks good, ap­ing the de­sign tropes of its big broth­ers, the E-Class and S-Class, drives well and, in C220d guise as driven here, is rea­son­able value – cost­ing from £40k.

It’s su­per-classy with loads of room in the back seats, de­spite that lovely coupe sweep­ing roofline, and it has a cer­tain air of lux­ury. To drive, it’s com­fort­able and easy-go­ing, ef­fort­less and re­lax­ing. Which is all very nice.

But if you’re in­ter­ested in ex­cit­ing or fun, this is not for you. There is, how­ever, also a proper AMG C63. Which can be easy-go­ing and ef­fort­less and re­lax­ing and the other things we men­tioned. But it can also make you laugh out loud at its au­dac­ity.
