This is the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class and at first glance it looks quite similar to the old car. But this is a brand new generation, complete with a spruced-up design and a cabin that takes a fair bit of inspiration from the opulent S-Class.
For decades the C-Class has gone up against the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4. And while that's still the case in 2021, it'll now also face stiff competition from EVs such as the Polestar 2 and Tesla Model 3. Is a hybrid powertrain and tech push enough to put the C-Class at the top of the premium saloon pile?
