Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Very punchy at mid range, quiet on the motorway and suprisingly economical (c45 mpg when cruising at 80).

What's it like to park?
Wish it had parking sensors as it is longer than you think, which has caught me out a few times.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Alloy wheels have corroded from the centre and MB refused a warranty claim on them. Seems to be a common fault on C classes.

What's most practical about your car?
Good sized boot.

Bluetooth connectivity.
