What's the used Mercedes C-Class saloon like?

With the 190E and the original C-Class, Mercedes had succeeded in making successful small executive cars, but with this second-generation Mercedes C-Class, it really started to challenge the BMW 3 Series head-on.

Designed to be more rewarding to drive than its predecessor without losing that classic Mercedes comfort, the second C-Class succeeded on both counts. It still wasn’t as fun as the BMW, but it was blessed with responsive steering and decent body control, and it soaked up bumps well, too.
