• Interior. Every element inside the current C-Class has been carefully considered and it’s a beautiful place to be.
  • Styling. Though it may be the C-Class entry level, the C200 still looks premium on the road. Like a baby S-Class.
  • Headlights. Benz has developed its own tricky LED headlights and they’re a big step up over conventional halogen lights.
  • Efficiency. The C200’s 2.0-litre engine is powerful enough while still being wonderfully economical on fuel.
  • Equipment. Merc hasn’t held back the tech from the C200. You get a raft of nine airbags, auto emergency braking, sat nav, reversing camera, electric seats, blind spot detection, lane assist and a head-up display.


  • Ride. We wouldn’t call the C-Class uncomfortable. That would be unfair. Though if you want truly sublime Mercedes-Benz smoothness you’ll need to option the self-levelling air suspension.
  • Trim. As standard the C200’s interior lacks a little panache. It really benefits from the optional wood grain trim at the very least.
