The ride is wonderfully smooth on the highway and in the city.
The steering feels very accurate (unlike the Lexus IS that I have driven on more than one occasion) yet is still light.
The seat causes no discomfort to my tailbone like many ohter cars. Furthermore, the padding is firm and feels like it will last a long time.
The exterior is very attractive in Sport trim. I find the BMW 3 series sedan ugly in comparison.
This is my 3rd Mercedes and reminded me of my W124 in its interior styling and ride.
