TrueDelta Reviews the Brand Reputation of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Mercedes-Benz C-Class Brand Reputation: Pros
YearComment
2015 Mercedes-Benz has been walking a tightrope. On the one hand, many people who thought nothing of buying an Audi or BMW couldn't quite see themselves in something so lofty as a Mercedes. On the other, attempts to counter such perceptions risked damaging the brand's equity. Despite some missteps over the past two decades, Mercedes-Benz has managed to avoid both Scylla and Carybdis. More people than ever perceive a Mercedes as a car they could own. Yet it retains more prestige among the general population than Audi and BMW. see full Mercedes-Benz C-Class review
