Looked at all the competition. Hands down best driving of all of them. This is my wife's car and she came out of Mercedes Benz C-Class. Ask her if she misses her other car and she'll yell out "not at all".
Design. No gimmicky options. Standard options is close to a fully loaded BMW or Mercedes. Feel and response of the car is great. Very quiet, smooth. Stereo plays MP3 discs!!
