The Top Gear car review:Mercedes-Benz C-Class
Final thoughts and pick of the range
While Mercedes says this particularly C-Class is almost 50 per cent new, the car itself has changed little. It remains the most comfy and composed small saloon on sale, with even more refinement, tech and luxury inside to galvanise its position as a cut-price, scale-model S-Class.
The downside of that is a chassis you could (perhaps cruelly) accuse of being a bit boring, but unlike an Audi A4, the C-Class is at least rear-wheel drive as standard, and there’s always the C43 AMG if you crave a bit more excitement.
It’s never anything less (or more) than unstressed and unruffled to drive, creating surely the most relaxing driving experience in its class. For many, that will be exactly what they’re looking for.
