Mercedes-Benz New C-Class Expert Review

0 Shares

Introduction

The CLA might have taken the mantle of being the entry-level Mercedes sedan, but it's the C-Class that continues to be the big seller in the lineup. Four generations of affordable luxury later, we finally have a new one. The fifth gen (W205) is the first car from the Mercedes-Benz stable to be based on a new modular MRA platform, and marks a paradigm shift for the automaker. Is the C-Class  still the go-to luxury sedan?

Pros
  • Baby S-Class looks turn quite a few heads. Simple, suave and sophisticated!
  • Quality, fit and finish in the interiors is top notch.
  • Rear-seat space is among the best in class. Ideal for the chauffeur driven.
  • New 9-speed gearbox is quick and smooth. Shift-shocks are non-existent.
  • Fantastic ride quality. Feels at home in our pothole stricken roads.
Cons
  • Premium pricing compared to direct rivals.
  • Not as fun to drive as the BMW 3 Series.

Stand Out Features

  • Burmester audio system sounds fantastic. Easily the best in class.

CarDekho Verdict

Mercedes-Benz hasn't reinvented the formula for the C-Class. They've just made it a notch better in every measurable way. It has more space, is more comfortable on the move and needless to mention, is super refined as well.

" The C-Class is possibly the best blueprint for a compact luxury sedan."

Clean design, chic interiors and a whole lot of class!
