    My car

    I recently bought a C220 CDI Exec Estate Auto with Premium package. Having owned an E class for the last 5 years, I was concerned that I may be disappointed with the smaller and possibly less refined car. I have to say that I'm delighted with my choice and totally recommend a C class. The drive is excellent and the build quality what you expect from Mercedes. I'm puzzled why What Car only give 2 stars for their rating. This is my 3rd Mercedes. I did test drive a 3 series but it didn't impress me as I'd expected. If you're considering a C class then I advise paying extra for Command (navigation, heated seats and reversing camera are included in the Premium package).

    My car

    I disagree with the overall negative tone of this review, and I'm wondering if we're talking about the same car.

    I have a 2011 C180 estate since June 2013 and I love it.

    It's a pleasure to drive, with decent power and response. I find it comfortable, and after suffering an Audi A4 2.0T for two years, it's nice to have an automatic gearbox that works!

    It's a stunning car to look at, and with two kids under 4 years old, it makes life easy for long and short trips.

    Great car.

    My car

    I have traded from the left field choice of an Infiniti M diesel. As such I didn't want to lose performance or too much specification. So far I am very impressed and as a previous CLS owner I have experiencing bigger Benzes. I would agree with previous comments in that the infotainment system is not an issue with a little familiarity and time spent with the single column stalk makes you wonder why everyone doesn't do the same thing. The 3l engine has monstrous torque with effortless performance and yes my other car is a Porsche - albeit an old bog standard Boxster! The ride is firm but not overly so and interior quality is good in my opinion. If you want a quick, reliable - so far! - stylish and practical estate this may well be the car for you and with a new model on the horizon deals can be done even with the blue chip Mercedes dealers. Go on, worry the Labrador.

    My car

    Totally disagree with your review. The Amg sport plus is a great car. I've just traded down from a 525d 5-series. Sure refinement is not quite as good. However the ride is much better. The car is lighter, more agile, sportier and faster!!! At idle the engine is motionless. I'd say the bmw has more vibration from its 3.0 straight six. The merc has a growl to it - fantastic. Fed up of quiet, boring, methodical cars for really boring people. This car is for people with soul - it's beautiful to look at, to drive and to live in. A real drivers car. Lovely.
