Quality engineering particular prior to the merge with Chrysler and since the dissolution of this partnership.
The sports model is progressive yet traditional and much more attractive than similar cars in that class including the Lexus IS250s-350s, Audi A4, etc.
Very responsive braking and excellent crash test results. Driving the vehicle feels solid and stable.
Durability was second to none in the 70s and I am convinced that the new c class is a return to form. I followed the repair history of the 2008 and 2009 models and was pleased with both reliability and durability.
With the standard transmission and rear wheel drive, vehicle is responsive and dignified at the same time.
