First, this is my 3rd Mercedes-Benz C300 and I absolutely love these cars. Previously, I owned a 2008 and then went with a 2011. I took a break for a 3 years to see if a Honda Accord would work for me. While it worked well, I missed my Mercedes the whole time. You can tell the difference in build quality, ride quality, and fun factor. The AWD Mercedes is so nice and gives you such a great ride in the snow. I have never had any issues in the snow. The drivability of this car is wonderful, you will have a more refined driving experience, everything with a Mercedes is this way. You'll notice a difference in the smooth closing of a door to the smooth acceleration of the 7 speed automatic transmission. Overall, the C300 is a wonderful car
Just the brand name says it. It goes without saying the car is very well made. Handles like a dream and is absolutely fun to drive. For such a small vehicle I wish the gas mileage were a bit better. Updating and adding more ports and charging capability for devices would be good. Another improvement would be to allow the rear view camera to work when the radio is off. If it's not on, the camera won't display anything. That is useless to me as a driver. Also including the guide lines as in lesser quality cars would be great. the stereo system is excellent. This car is a blast to drive. I look forward to the daily work commute.
If you are just looking for a car, or you are optimizing for fuel economy, then look at other cars. But if you really like to drive, if you want driving to be an experience, rather than just getting from point A to B, then look at the Mercedes C300. The car drives with so little effort and it just *feels* different. It drives very well, corners like a dream, and has plenty of power. Fuel economy is not terrible, but again, who cares!
