Mercedes-Benz CLC Coupe 180K Sport (17'' Alloys) 3d (2009/59) - Owner Review

Good flexibility with the fold flat rear seats and easier to get in and out of the back than the BMW. But do miss the remote control boot that the BMW Compact had.

Buying experience

4 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Franchise

Did you buy this car new?
New

What price did you pay?
£20,383

When did you buy the car?
September 2009

Did you get a good deal and why?
I think I got quite a good deal as I used an older car that I had and took advantage of the scrap allowance, and with the added bonus of 15% VAT. Mercedes also had upgraded the SE version with a few extras.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Did not like the look of BMW 1 Series, previous car was BMW Compact which was great. Mercedes garage was close and loved the styling of the CLC and prefer the convenience of a hatch back car.

What was the dealer like?
Yes, I feel I did get a good deal.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
A pleasure to drive, I choose the manual option and I felt that an automatic car was boring and for old people. Why do most Mercedes drivers opt for automatic? Why not enjoy the driving experience.

What's it like to park?
Easy to park, rear window visibility could be improved and why not have a rear window screen whipper, it would not spoil the styling that much and would improve visibility. Parking sensors are wonderful.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
No, the car has been super, and is very stylish.

What's most practical about your car?
Good flexibility with the fold flat rear seats and easier to get in and out of the back than the BMW. But do miss the remote control boot that the BMW Compact had.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Blue tooth and easy display screen.
