Need help buying your next car? Click the following link and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!

This is the all-new Mercedes C-Class, and Mat’s here to find out if Mercedes has what it takes to compete with the BMW 3 Series & Audi A4!

Now when it comes to the design & build quality, it won’t come as a shock to any of you that the C-Class bears a lot of similarities to the S-Class. But then again, that’s no bad thing! It looks great on the outside, and once you step inside, you’ll be treated to high quality materials throughout.

So it looks great, but what’s the performance like? Well you’ll have a number of petrol, diesel and hybrid engines to choose from. They’re all 2-litre 4 cylinders, and while the C300 delivers 258hp, the C300d will produce 265hp. The C300e has the same size engine, but it combines with an electric motor to produce 333hp. You’ll also be able to drive on electric power alone for up to 62 miles!

So what do you think - is it worth the expected £35,000 starting price? You’ll have to stick with Mat to find out!

    I think this exterior design carried over this new line up (s-class to c-class) is the worst Mercedes has done in years. The perfect car is this modern interior with previous generation exterior design...

    Something is wrong with the edit. At 4:14, the door panel feels good, then at 4:27 that same part is "the worst part", with a scratchy sound that is not in synch with matt's fingers, running over that same part.

      Yep! glad that u saw this Matt is such a scam! Whole this channel is. he is a blatant liar and a mercedes basher. The parts that he was scratching at the middle console are soft plastics not hard. i have sat in this car. The quality is great! and on the same level as the W205. He always blasts mercedes for the stupidiest things, yet in like bmw and audi who has also hard plastics he never says something about it. Matt is a total clown and liar

    Although it looks better than the orecious one - used to be a Merc fanboy but they are just messing up in the last years. Overpriced, everything is extra $ and then they use cheap trickery. Very happy with my VWs!

    Mat is the most biased and blatant lying reviewer there is. In every video he critiques the same plastic part places in a mercedes. Yet those places are also plastic in other rival brands. The biggest lie is when he said the inner handle part of the inside is plastic yet he never mentions it in rival brands. And they also have the same plastics. Also bmw and audi have always plastic buttons for the windows and on the steering wheel yet mercedes has it in aluminum. Yet he never mentions this in bmw and audi. Check out his older car reviews. This is why he is such a biased blatant liar and bad reviewer shame on him

    Inside is a 9/10 Outside 4/10 They eff up that outside so much recently. Fake exhaust, fake difusores, lame lines... Then again a coupe just looks ugly, estate looks pretty much always better and you get more room while the size of the car (width, length) stays pretty much the same.
