Review

Good looks and a tech-laden interior may win the Mercedes C-Class many fans, plus the C300e plug-in hybrid looks to be a seriously promising company car choice. However, there are more accommodating executive cars out there for boot space and passenger comfort, and many outshine it in terms of interior quality.

Similar to AMG line, but does without the sportier exterior and interior styling of the latter. You’ll get both a 12.3in digital driver display and an 11.9in portrait-oriented central touchscreen with the latest MBUX infotainment system that includes wireless smartphone integration and a reversing camera. There’s also LED headlights, blind-spot monitoring, leather trim and heated front seats.

This 201bhp mild-hybrid petrol engine uses electric boost for extra power and efficiency, but it’s surprisingly noisy when revved out, and doesn’t feel as fast as its power and performance figures suggest. It does, however, stack up well against equivalent units in competitors.
