The car is very smooth to ride, thanks to the 9-speed automatic transmission which makes the gears shift seamlessly and the steering wheel is also soo sharp. The acceleration is better than ever and the new c220d can go from 0 to 100 in 6.9 seconds. To add to the fun, paddle shifters are provided as standard. It comes with a lot of luxury, ambience, comfort and performance just like any other Mercedes Benz car. The dynamic modes are fun to play with. The sports+ mode makes the car go even faster with a little compromise in comfort while the comfort mode makes the gear shift early to save fuel and provide comfort. The front seats are very comfortable and resemble closely to the E class seats. The 18-inch alloy wheels make the ride even more comfortable, especially on speed breakers. Overall, this is the car for the ones who seek comfort, luxury, performance and stunning looks in their car. Highly recommended.
