Mercedes C-class C250 Bluetec AMG Line (2014) CAR review

Rated 3 out of 53

Chris Chilton, 10 March 2014 17:20

Mercedes looked to big brother S-class for inspiration for its new C-class junior sports saloon. But does a jaw-dropping cabin and a CES show’s worth of tech help it top the class? And people accuse Audis of looking alike. What’s the difference between this and an S-class? You mean apart from 195mm of wheelbase? They certainly do look similar, but ...

Mercedes C250 CDI Coupe (2011) CAR review

Rated 4 out of 54

Ben Pulman, 06 October 2011 14:05

The CLK is dead, the E-class Coupe has been pushed upmarket, and the CLC is a horrible old little hatchback. Which, until now, has left Mercedes without a rival for BMW’s 3-series Coupe and Audi’s A5 Coupe. Step forward the Mercedes C-class Coupe – which is all C-class unlike the E-class Coupe which uses parts from both the C- and ...

Mercedes C220 CDI facelift (2011) CAR review

Rated 3 out of 53

Stephen Worthy, 03 August 2011 10:00

Amid all the repositioning of the Mercedes roster – the C-class Coupe is essentially the new CLK, but there's a E-class Coupe that uses C-class parts too – the C-class saloon remains a no-nonsense, reliable choice in the compact exec segment. But worried about looking too much like a taxi? Want to spice things up with a bit of bodykit (and ...

Mercedes C350 CDI facelift (2011) CAR review

Rated 2.5 out of 52.5

Ben Barry, 08 March 2011 08:00

At a casual glance the revised 2011 Mercedes C-class looks much the same, but this mid-life facelift actually consists of 2000 new parts that variously fettle the exterior, interior and powertrain – more than any other facelift in Merc’s history. What are the main changes to the facelifted C-class? The exterior looks a little sharper thanks to new bumpers, headlights ...

Mercedes C250 CDI Prime Edtion (2008) CAR review

Rated 2.5 out of 52.5

CJ Hubbard, 15 October 2008 09:14

We've just driven Mercedes-Benz's important new eco-specialist C-class: the – take a deep breath – C250 CDI Blue Efficiency Prime Edition. Putting the Transformers jokes to one side for a second, listen up because under the bonnet lies the beating heart of a concept car. The C250 CDI's Blue Efficiency turbodiesel engine cropped up earlier this month as the motive ...

Mercedes C180 SE (2008) CAR review

Rated 3 out of 53

Glen Waddington, 07 January 2008 09:00

Four cylinders? A manual gearbox? Not traditionally attractive territory for a Mercedes, especially if you’re talking petrol rather than diesel. But Mercedes hopes you’ll go for this car rather than BMW’s 318i ES, and pay a couple of grand more for the extra 12bhp and 14lb ft afforded by the Merc’s supercharged engine. Taxi spec doesn’t do it for me... ...

Mercedes C220 CDI estate (2007) review

Rated 4 out of 54

Ged Maxwell, 19 September 2007 05:30

Ooh, a compact exec estate. What combination of sport/tourer/Avant/wagon is it called? None: the Mercedes C-Class estate is, well, just that. Plain old estate. And the largest premium-class estate at that. How very sensible. Mercedes may have been unusually bold in its approach to the latest C – hacking off the stick-up grille badge for Sport editions, making the chassis ...

Mercedes C220 CDI Sport (2007) CAR review

Rated 2.5 out of 52.5

Peter Burgess, 19 June 2007 10:59

It looks like there’s a major change going on here Certainly is. Gone are the smooth curves of the previous C-class, replaced with something far more edgy and, dare we say it, rather modern. The C-class is bigger all-round and crucially there’s another 45mm in the wheelbase and more shoulder room. That’s hardly a surprise. Passenger space has always been ...

Mercedes C350 Sport (2007) CAR review

Rated 3 out of 53

Richard Aucock, 12 March 2007 10:57

Seven years since the last, an all-new C-Class. What are the highlights? Mercedes has gone back to basics with the new C. Keen to banish memories of the E-class quality/breakdown/recall debacle, it has scrapped some of its old techniques and relied more on a computer-generated virtual C-class (its 2130GB of data might just crash your average PC) to iron out ...
