Many rivals outshine the C-Class in terms of interior quality, but the C300e plug-in hybrid version is the pick of the range because it offers a huge electric range, makes a cheap company car, plus 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.

We’ve yet to try the most powerful diesel in the range, but with 262bhp and a claimed 0-62mph sprint of just 5.7sec, we expect it’ll be more than fast enough for anything you can throw at it. It's not as efficient as the C200d though, officially managing mid-50mpg instead of 60mpg, so that’s worth considering.
