Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Volvo S60 should give the "default" German choices a real run for the money.

Pros
Son of S90 style
Promise of good performance
Sedate interior
Lots of safety gear

Cons
Market has moved toward crossover SUVs
Is it too much like the S90?
Care by Volvo subscription off to a rocky start
Polestar Engineered not on T5, T6

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Fully redesigned for 2019

Pros
Appealing powertrain lineup including a high-performance plug-in hybrid
Long list of standard and available safety equipment

Cons
Interior user interface may be difficult to learn

By: 
edmunds.com

There have been some changes to standard and optional equipment across the C-Class lineup, and Mercedes has simplified some options packages and stand-alone options. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now available in the C-Class, too. A plug-in hybrid, the C350e, is essentially new, though it technically debuted very late in the 2017 model year.

PROS
Interior is impeccably crafted
Many available cutting-edge features
Exterior styling turns heads everywhere
Multiple high-horsepower powertrains available

CONS
Stiff standard suspension
Clumsy touchpad infotainment interface

By:

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class ranked #10 in Luxury Small Cars. Currently the Mercedes-Benz C-Class has a score of 8.4 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 47 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Elegant interior with high-grade materials
Refined, powerful engines

Cons
Complicated infotainment system and controls
Small rear seats
Poor predicted reliability rating

By: 
usnews.com

Very expensive and still not very large, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class nonetheless leads its luxury niche with fabulous style and fantastic power and grip.

Pros
Coupe, convertible, or sedan
A great-looking family
Powertrains range from great to GREAT
Best C-Class handling ever

Cons
Automatic-only
From $$ to $$$$
Tight rear seats
Shy on cargo space
Plug-in hybrid adds little
