Mercedes-Benz C350 Coupe vs. Volvo C30 T5 'Polestar Conversion'

They may be unlikely competitors, but that doesn't mean this isn't an interesting battle. The Mercedes-Benz C350 Coupe and the Volvo C30 T5 R-Design are the sportiest models available from their respective manufacturers (Monster AMG models not withstanding of course), but they both err on the side of sophistication, and studiously avoid, the boy racer tag. They are stylish, elegant and in the case of the Mercedes-Benz Coupe, downright expensive. The Volvo C30 T5 less so, taking into account its advancing age, but still factoring in its newly available 'Polestar Conversion' that Boosts power up to 184kW & 370Nm. We like the Volvo C30, always have, and that's why we're sitting it such a stiff challenge; putting it up against the rear wheel drive Mercedes-Benz with 224kW & 370Nm. The C350 Coupe also sports some clever new suspension technology called 'agility control,' that increases the damping pressure based on your driving to keep it level and true at any speed, in any corner. Yes, we know the Mercedes-Benz is twice the price of the Volvo, but hopefully the modified C30 T5 'Polestar Conversion' can upset the outcome... Last one up the hill is a rotten egg.

Mercedes C-Coupé C350 mit 306 PS
In unserem C350-Testwagen steckt ein 3,5-Liter-V6 mit 306 PS. Das Aggregat sorgt für sportliche Fahrleistungen -- für den Paradesprint von 0 auf Tempo 100 vergehen gerade Mal sechs Sekunden. Laut Mercedes soll er trotz der satten Leistung nur 7,0 Liter Benzin auf 100 km verbrauchen. Auf unserer Testfahrt waren es aber etwas mehr, der Bordcomputer zeigte knapp neun Liter an. Fazit: Gut, aber teuer -- trotz Euro-Rabatt. Zum Vergleich: das neue Hyundai-Coupé ist ebenfalls über 300 PS stark, kostet aber nur gut die Hälfte. Wer sich den Benz aber leisten kann, wird das Design, die Verarbeitung, den Motor und das Fahrwerk lieben. Eine Produktion von Ringier Entertainment. http://www.motorshow.ch
