2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Saloon Review

C220 Bluetec is a diesel engine which works great at low revs as well as high revs but is needed to be worked at high revs. The car also works great at mid-range but still lacks the worth. C250 Bluetec feels a little slow while the C200 petrol engine is just the opposite but it needs a good amount of revs to work up.
Airmatic suspension comes as optional making the handling of the car pretty comfortable and in control. However, even with these suspensions the ride can be quite disappointing especially over potholes and bumpy roads. If this suspension would be used in the Sport, its performance would be so much more worth with it working superbly on bumpy and cracked-up roads.
C-Class is not a performer in this field. The diesel engines are very noisy and full of vibrations in the cabin. C200 petrol is also the same. Road noise and wind noise come in plenty in the car.
The car is highly priced in around same range as that of BMW 3 Series. CO2 emissions are extremely low. Automatic gearbox models give a good value to the car with low company car tax bills. Fuel economy is also pretty impressive with the resale values quite high.
C-Class is an amazing car in terms of interior quality. The buttons and controls are also well-positioned are simplified. The high-range models like AMG Line models are better than standard models with leather imitation on dashboards.
Collision-prevention system comes handy in all the models with tyre-pressure monitoring system too. The car gives you seven airbags for total security if at all needed after all of the above and with these features present, the car scored high in Euro NCAP crash test. Engine immobilizer and an alarm are also present to prevent theft.
The car is pretty comfortable with a fair legroom and seat adjustments for long-legged people. Executive car standards give you a decent visibility. A seven-inch colour screen is present in all the models with a touchpad between the front seats.
SE cars have specs including 16-inch alloy wheels, climate and cruise control, handmade leather seats, reversing camera, DAB radio and rain-sensing wipers. Sport trim comes with a 17-inch alloy wheels, sat-nav, heated seats, LED headlights and parking sensors.
