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.

The C300e plug-in hybrid is the C-Class that makes most sense – especially if you're a company car driver (because it attracts a low BIK tax rating) or can charge at home. It can officially travel for up to 68 miles on electric power, with more than 50 miles perfectly realistic in the real world, but it also has the reassurance of a petrol engine on longer trips, and performs very strongly when both power sources are working together.
