Winner of Best Compact Executive
The C-Class has been a mainstay in the sales charts of Executive cars in Ireland for many years. The latest embodiment of it is no exception, offering a supreme level of refinement, both in driving dynamics and the feel of the cabin. There are fewer cars more comfortable in its category.
With a range of powertrains available, there are plenty of options to choose from to suit your needs. The entry level models offer plenty of power to shift you around the country, and if you fancy having some fun at the same time then you can always creep up the options list. The PHEV has a generous battery capacity, and will get you around 100kms on a charge.
As usual, the C-class inherits some excellent tech from its bigger siblings. The ‘Hey Mercedes’ voice activation is improving to very impressive levels. Large, clear and intuitive screens make the Mercedes a very comfortable car to live with. As juror Neil Briscoe states, it has a ‘gorgeous cabin, is soothing to drive, and very high quality’.
