Since we've had the chance to check out the all-new, 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, we've been mightily impressed; however, we haven't been behind the wheel.
At first glance the car was stunningly impressive. From the high-class exterior styling to the remarkably outfitted interior, it easily outdoes what's currently on the market. And it's not by a bit, it's a HUGE improvement.
Of course there's more to a product than just the looks and interior quality. Since we've yet to get behind the wheel, we're going to turn to Autocar's Steve Sutcliffe to find out what his first impressions are.

The all-new Mercedes-Benz C-class. It’s set to be here for a while, because Mercedes isn’t planning on replacing this fifth-generation C-class for another seven years. So, until 2021, this is the C-class, and if ever Mercedes needed to get a car right, and get it right from the word go, this is it.
It’s a touch bigger than before, both inside and out, but, crucially, it’s also between 70kg and 100kg lighter than the previous model. And it’s more aerodynamically efficient, which, in turn, helps it to be more ecologically efficient, too. But is it better to drive? Steve Sutcliffe finds out.
