Mercedes-Benz C-Class Saloon (2018 - )

In a crowded class of compact executive saloons, the Mercedes C-Class is arguably one of the most desirable, combining smart looks with the unbeatable cachet of the three-pointed star on its nose. The question is: does it have what it takes to fend off stiff competition in the form of cars like the Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series?

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

When the C-Class was facelifted in 2018, Mercedes hiked up prices considerably, making the car a good bit more expensive than its major rivals.

And, as well as being costlier to come by in the first place, the C-Class’ price increase isn’t then given back in resale values, with the Mercedes not expected to be worth any more than its peers when it’s time to move it on to a new home. Insurance groups are also a bit on the high side compared with rivals, too. CO2 emissions and fuel economy are within touching distance of the best rivals, though not ahead of them, and it’s a similar story with routine service and maintenance.

Obviously, the C63 versions are a very different financial proposition to the rest of the range, and will be prohibitively expensive for many, but those with one eye on the pennies wouldn’t be considering one anyway.
