When Mercedes was built by Engineers....
By Paul on
2010 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C300 Sport 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Mercedes and... Ursula Andress were the objects of my fascination when I was 12. I will not comment about the (then) stunning Miss.Andress, but the Merc was the symbol of style and mechanic perfection. The new C-Class has enough refinement to lure customers: with the new design tries to convince the BMW customers to switch to a different proposition. Larger on the outside than the previous model, feels small and cramped inside. The front of the car is appealing, while the back is the result of the involvement of the accountants :- ).Driving over 60 mph brings wind noise in the otherways quiet luxurious cabin. the car handles well, but the steering is uneasily soft and un-engaging
Front design is a mixture of pre-2000 C- class and BMW. Interior spells class (albeit cramped) The wheels re-design (alloys) give the car a sporty, muscular look.
The back of the car is the result of either assassination of the designer or the involvement of the accountants. Cramped interior, squeezed seats Noisy at speeds over 60 mph Disappointing consumption. Issues with injectors, steering racks, rattles with seats (rattles).
