Many rivals outshine the Mercedes C-Class in terms of interior quality, but the C300e plug-in hybrid version offers a huge electric range and makes a cheap company car, plus all versions come with lots of tech, and the adaptive suspension strikes a fine balance between ride comfort and cornering composure.

This trim level gets everything Sport has, but with some sportier exterior and interior touches that add to the car's desirability and are likely to boost resale values. For that reason, we reckon it's the trim to have.

The plug-in hybrid C300e will be of most interest to company car drivers. The electric motor is more than capable of keeping up with traffic up to motorway speeds, and the official electric range of up to 60 miles is double the BMW 330e's. You get 308bhp when the petrol engine kicks in (which happens seamlessly), giving a 0-62mph time of 6.1sec.
