Many rivals outshine the C-Class in terms of interior quality, but it does have its strengths, especially in C300e plug-in hybrid form. The C300e has a long electric range, which makes for a low company car tax rate, and its standard rear air suspension does wonders for striking a fine balance between ride comfort and cornering composure.

This trim level gets 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 197bhp engine is our pick of the diesel 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.
