03. The 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe Offers Good Fuel Economy
A big part of the reason why the 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe is initially outfitted with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine has to do with improving the vehicle's fuel mileage. Efficiency is very much on the minds of automakers facing stringent corporate average fuel economy regulations in the United States, and as a result the C-Class Coupe's turbo four is good for a reports 21-mpg in stop and go driving and 31-mpg on the highway. The V-6 edition of the car drops only slightly to 20-mpg city and 29-mpg during highway cruising, a testament in part to the wisdom of including an advanced seven-speed automatic transmission as standard equipment with either engine.
