"Refined Motoring"

Exterior and Interior

The exterior of the car is stylish and features the Mercedes signature chrome grill. I think the car would look better with privacy glass, but this can be fitted by 3rd party companies. The inside is classic Mercedes, well built, and solid. The buttons all have a positive feel and the optional sat nav command is worth choosing as it features a DVD changer, SD card reader, Bluetooth and Navigation.

Performance and Economy

The 2.0L Diesel is pretty loud on the outside, but in the cabin its very well insulated. Under normal driving at 60-70 its such a cruiser. Economy is around 54Mpg, and the diesel torque makes overtaking a breeze.

Like to Drive

The car is more aimed at people wanting a refined journey, far from a sporty drive. It will grip the road well though, and not much body roll for a car of this size. It will shift if you push it hard, but its more suited to cursing. Takes some getting used to how short the front of the car is. <

Faults and Repairs

The only problem I've had is the climate thermostat not working correctly. This was replaced under warranty free of charge.
