Mercedes-Benz C280 2007 Review

Looking for a used Mercedes-Benz?

Buy with confidence; all Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned vehicles come with a factory backed warranty, 100 point safety check, comprehensive service history and 24hr roadside assistance.

That is not to say that Mercedes doesn't get it wrong occasionally - its dalliance with R-Class, is one example - but such is not the case with the new C-Class.

This may be the Mercedes version of the “people's car” but this time around it has not shirked at all.

The styling is sharp, the 3.0-litre 170kW V6 is both strong and smooth and the seven-speed auto appears eminently happy to be associated with it. The C-Class, in its Avantgarde guise, is stylishly fitted out with superb seats and a seriously rich feel to the general trim.

Ride comfort is excellent, the suspension is compliant and offers a good balance between highway cruising and backroad bruising.

Steering feel - for a Mercedes - is quite good with a nice progressive weighting.

Engine: 3.0L/V6, 170kW/300Nm
