Best used cars to buy - 2014 Used Car Awards
Driver Power 2014
Cheapest cars to run
Most economical cars
A very ugly vehicle. I really do not understand why anyone would now buy a Merc any more - other than an SLS. Once upon a time, a Mercedes used to be a thing to be proud of, but now the image has been ruined by the cheaper cars in the range.. A, B & C classes, which have cheap plastic interiors, badly made, poor dynamics and simply are not worthy of the "Mercedes Benz" badge of old. As a result of these cheap models, many people no longer want a "Merc" (unless it's a classic). The starting model for a "Mercedes Benz" should be the E class, but when you look at how ugly, and over priced it is nowadays, it's a wonder whether even it's most stringent supporters (Grandads & taxi drivers) would want another.
Steve shut up if your not a mercedes fan stop looking at them because i dont see bmw, audi doing anybetter if anything mercedes build quality across the range has got better of the years considering ive had a thew i can make this judgement
Has anyone actually sat behind a new Merc recently in traffic. Blinding isn't the word. The drivers need to learn how to apply a hand brake. Those LED brake lights are far too strong. I don't recall seeing any complaints that the traditonal bulbs were too dim. So not only am I being blinded by xenon head lights everywhere, (and don't get me started on the twits that put HID lights conversation kits in their halogen designated headlight unit) I'm now being blinded by the rear with eye piercing Christmas fairy light.
