PROS

Prestige; quality; V6 engines; slow depreciation

CONS

Audi A4 makes C-Class look expensive

Verdict

This excellent compact executive estate makes an fine introduction to Mercedes ownership and is a faithful family workhorse. Those high standards of engineering, finish and driver satisfaction don't come cheaply. C-Class may have become realively common, but the Estate is more sought after and there are fewer on the market so prices remain stronger than for the Saloon.

Bought as much for its prestigeous image as for its practicality there are bigger estate about but few feel as special.
