Mercedes-Benz C-class - At a glance car review


Make: Mercedes-Benz

Model: C-class


As Mercedes continues in its attempts to disrupt the BMW and Audi dominance of the fleet sector, the C-class has become vital to the firm’s fleet fortunes. Still more soberly designed inside and out than its premium rivals, the Merc, available in saloon and estate form, as well as the sporty looking Coupe, and in rear or four wheel drive and from plug-in hybrid to 510hp C63 AMG S model, the range has never been broader or more appealing to company car drivers.

CCT positive:

Comfortable, impressive breadth of range

CCT negative:

Not quite as good to drive as its rivals, styling still not that attractive to a younger audience

Main rivals:

Audi A4, BMW 3-series, Jaguar XE

Interesting alternatives:

Lexus IS, Infiniti Q50, Alfa Romeo Giulia, Volkswagen Passat

CCT says:

More competitive an all-rounder than previous C-class models, this Merc still appeals more to people looking to the understated comfort end of the sector.
