Mercedes-Benz C Class Saloon (2021 - )

The ubiquitous Mercedes-Benz C-Class has suffered from its global popularity somewhat over the years, gaining an image as a holiday taxi, and losing ground in the desirability stakes in the UK to the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4 while the Jaguar XE and Alfa Romeo Giulia satisfy saloon buyers craving a genuinely sporty drive. The new C-Class, however, is in a league of its own, packed with excellent tech and design, and running on a decent range of engines.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

Mercedes cars come with a high price tag reflecting their premium nature. Ownership costs will vary depending on what engine you choose - there are two diesels and two petrols, and a choice of plug-in or mild hybrids. We tested the higher C300d diesel, a mild hybrid, for a week and got excellent fuel economy - 55mpg without trying. It was in the highest AMG Line Premium Plus trim, which pushed the price above £50,000, but for that money you get an awful lot of car in terms of space, comfort, acceleration, class-leading technology (via a massive touch-screen) and fuel economy. Just watch the insurance and VED/’road tax’ costs as you go up the engine/power range. But, rest assured, a top-level C-class will be all the Mercedes you need.
