Relaxing is the key to driving the S550. It may have as much technology as a space shuttle, but it’s there for you and doesn’t care if you notice it or not, as long as you are comfortable.

The 2012 C350 maintains everything we’ve come to appreciate from Mercedes-Benz: substantial construction, cutting edge features and the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’re driving a safe, well-engineered sedan.

The 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class now offers more choice while adding to its already impressive array of talents. There’s only one car in the class that provides the honest, unapologetic and meticulously engineered goodness of a genuine Mercedes-Benz.

The C-Class is the most affordable way to own a Mercedes-Benz. The sporty character, quality interior and strong engine lineup should appeal to most buyers, but the small rear seat will turn off families.

The new 2012 Mercedes-Benz C350 is so much nicer inside that we actually feel a little bad for customers who already bought a C-class.

The Mercedes Benz C350 Sport is just a well-executed luxury sedan that happens to have “Sport” in its name.

The C-Class offers driving enjoyment in addition to safety, stability and luxury. And it does this for about $14,000 less than an E-Class.

The C300 is a car with a very solid structure, but little else to separate it from the crowd. Seeking a rolling bank vault with tidy dimensions? Then the C300 is your car.

The C-Class now feels complete, with a better interior, better efficiency, and more solid structure. With improved styling, handling, and power, the C has gone from something you would like to lease to something you would love to own.

Drive the revised C350 Sport and you’ll enjoy the subtle improvements in its performance and quality. Just invest in quality winter tires and a good roadside assistance package.
