2010 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C300 Sport 4MATIC 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 7A)
After owning two Audi A4's and a BMW I thought I would explore the "competition" in the auto world. I too was "lured" in with the "fantastic deal" and appropriate trade-in on a 2010 C300 4-Matic Sport that I had purchased in late November 2009. I live in Minnesota (which this year has had a lot of snow. So far, I must say that the handling in snow is not what I had expected from a all- wheel drive car. It does not compare at all to the A4 Quattro (much more sure-footed)or my BMW for that matter. MB's back end swerves out (and not at a fast speed!) when turning or cornering in snowy conditions. So far the final verdict is still out, but right now,not very impressed with Mercedes handling.
The "looks" are a very appealing. Ride and comfort are good. Very quiet interior.
Better gas mileage. Maybe some fancy LED rear lights as standard equipment.
