Review Summary
It’s a rival to the popular BMW 3 Series and the Audi A4 – but is more comfortable and nicer inside than either. And it’s just as cheap to run, though it does have its faults; the poor manual gearbox and utterly vague steering detract from a pure sporty driving experience.

Review Summary
The Mercedes C-Class is more comfortable, luxurious and efficient than ever before, but a noisy diesel engine spoils the experience slightly.

Review Summary
The Mercedes C-Class goes posher than ever before as it bids to topple BMW’s all-conquering 3 Series and Jaguar XE.

Review Summary
In most regards, the Mercedes C-class is right up there with the best in its class, including the BMW 3-series.

Review Summary
The Mercedes isn't as good to drive as a 3-Series, but it does make the BMW appear bit less outstanding overall.

Review Summary
Yet again, the C-Class is an excellent motorway car which is great news for company car drivers – the primary buyers of this model.

Review Summary
Confident effort, free from old-school Stuttgart smugness, but not trying to ape the 3-series either.

Review Summary
Inevitably there are some compromises in terms of practicality over the saloon but the exclusivity, sharper looks and better driving dynamics are a worthy payoff.

Review Summary
The Mercedes C-Class is a compact executive saloon that majors on comfort – as long as you spec it right.
