Mercedes-Benz C250 Quick Review Video

The C-Class is the best-selling Mercedes-Benz in Australia by a country mile, and it’s at its most popular in this C250 petrol guise.

The C250 badge denotes the most powerful of all the four-cylinder engines currently offered in the C-Class.

It’s also WhichCar’s pick of the model’s smaller engines for its responsiveness and competitive efficiency, though some direct rivals are both quicker and more economical.

If the C-Class looks like a junior S-Class on the outside, then the interior is also inspired by the company’s famous limo.

There’s excellent noise refinement when the C250 is on the move. However, for the kind of ride quality expected of a Mercedes it is important to tick the option box marked Airmatic – Benz’s name for air suspension.

Standard features include an active cruise control system that can operate even in stop-start traffic, sensors that can warn you of approaching vehicles when reversing out of a perpendicular parking spot, and semi-automated steering that allows temporary hands-free driving.

If you’ve got about $70,000 to spend on a compact executive car, the Mercedes-Benz C250 remains one of the more persuasive options.
