Review

If you're looking for the most practical estate, you'll be better off looking at the Skoda Superb, but against rivals such as the Audi A4 Avant and Volvo V60, the Mercedes C-Class stacks up rather well. It can’t quite match the driving fun of the best in class, though, and a disappointing step down in interior quality means we’d still recommend a BMW 3 Series Touring overall.

Going for the range-topping AMG line Premium Plus adds three-zone climate control, a panoramic glass sunroof and excellent Burmester surround sound system.

This 197bhp diesel engine is our pick of the range because it delivers plenty of performance from low revs, and returns some of the best fuel economy figures for the class. It's not as refined as the equivalent engine in an Audi A4, but it settles down when you’re just cruising along.
