Mercedes-Benz CLC Coupe (08-10)

Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Young go-getter of a business professional. Perhaps a little obviously a starting-out venture in to the world of Mercedes, being as it is in the lower price bracket of their range. However if it gets you in to the premium brand, then if there's any equity left in it 3 years down the line (if you've bought through one of their hire purchase schemes) then why not treat yourself to an SL next time round!

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Love it, and say it's definately a young mans' Mercedes.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes, it looks good, aggresive yet sleek, especially in black, and the overall build quality is obviously premium brand.

What are you likely to buy next?
Mercedes SL.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Cruise beatifully on motorways, especially in cruise control mode which is easy to operate. Round town handles responsively, just watch out for those huge sporty alloys on the Sport model, could easily be curbed if not careful!

What's it like to park?
Great - due to the standard feature on all models of the front and rear park sensors.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Not a bean 1 month in - drives like a dream, and get's heads turning, due to the new aggresive front end I think.

What's most practical about your car?
The large boot space.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Built in bluetooth system, or the gear shift paddles (which Clarkson hates!) :-)
