Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate rivals

The 2000 C-Class tried to knock the BMW 3-Series off its perch as the most desired car in this class, and comes close. Original four-cylinder petrol engines are too thirsty, though, and the interior quality was perhaps not quite up to the standard of other Mercedes-Benzes. Supercharged 1.8-litre engines replaced the two smallest petrol engines in 2002 bringing huge improvements in fuel consumption, while a major update in summer 2004 made the C-Class a more rewarding car to drive.
