Review

great entry level MB-- just dont get into a hurry merging into traffic. Also, be aware of the shrinking cabin area. After some time, I am convinced that something causes the vehicle to slowly but surely decrease its interior space, thus severely cramping all occupants. Perhaps it is the "new" wearing off. And, if you're a large cup purchaser at the convenience store-- get ready to change your drinking habits, or wear your beverage. Still no real cup holders! All in all, sophisticated and comfortable, just don't plan on taking the kids and spouse on a road trip in this one-- opt for the larger E class!

Best Features

fuel economy, and the shining star on the hood. Great safety, quiet, and seats two comfortably with the seats in the rearmost positions.

Worst Features

MB has already axed this body and engine. New ones are hotter than ever. To bad for the Vault-like body style though, it always appealed to me.
