Mercedes C-Class 2021 review - S-Class luxury for less!
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!

    Ugly exterior design, looks inspired by the old uglier CLA. Hate the rest too, the resr lights are so unmercedes.

    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...

    Is there a typo in the title? I thought only 2022 models have the tablet as the control panel

  • [H]YPER

    I am 181 cm and I can feel the roof in the back seat with my head. Even my A5 sportback Audi has a better head room.

    Ordered it since March and can’t wait to get it on September ! C220D AMG pack with of course fake air intake and exhaust included…the legend says that it’s to prevent from bugs turtles, snakes and car wow stick to come in 🤓) I didn’t know that the interior I was soOo “hard plastic” ..I feel sick now 🤕😂

  • BlackBirds93

    Looks worse than the previous gen c-class for sure

    It feels that Mercedes Benz is now run by a sales executive called Genenvive Coco. She is from Paris and she has a degree in fabric design from the university of west england.

    I drove the previous C220d, that car was brilliant and I did considering buying one at one point. I can't see how this one would be better.

  • Thehumanisone

    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.

    • VinAr Run
      VinAr Run

      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

  • Cpt.Flatspot

    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!

  • A1iiiiii

    lmao I died at 2:44

  • 13Bravo

    "C class" is "cheap" class or made in "China"

  • VinAr Run

    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

    The new C series is no longer the small S series, due to the simplicity of its design.The size works well on the S series. In addition, the dashboard design is worse than bmw and audi.

    It's actually not fake exhaust, it's designed ethically to not exhaust directly on the rear driver, the pipe is underneath

  • Shesh Ramtohul
    Shesh Ramtohul

    It's bad how mat picturises mercedes, he should not mix his personal choice with the review.

  • Katzi

    Why the hate for the nude beaches lol.

  • senorgato70

    Hate the fake design elements, but other than that, the overall exterior is best in class and the interior might be best in any class except the S-Class. Seriously impressive.

    That back bumper isn't fake, they use same bumper on c63 AMG with exhaust covers removed

  • simba

    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.

    Decent design, Very nice Interior (but with cheap materials wtf?), Fake bu****it exhaust and lower front bumper and weak looking wheels. Ehh, overall.... 6.0 out of 10. Maybe 5.7 if painted in normal colors and normal gloss finish. Not impressed. Would never buy it.

    I feel we should make a petition for Mercedes to quit the fakery on their non amg cars. Doesn’t the fake bits just add drag? If they were real they could help with air flow

    Mercedes get uglier every year!
