"...this is the least convincing product to wear the three-pointed Mercedes star that I can recall testing.


Mercedes calls this car a “compact sports tourer”. But given that it’s longer than a VW Golf, is utterly unsporting and, thanks to its disappointing performance, is a very compromised tourer, this proves about as convincing a slogan as the White Star Line describing the Titanic as unsinkable"


I take it they do not like it.
 
Thanks for the interesting link.

I think you were being polite with the comments you pasted, you could have used this:

"If only this car were as good as its clothes Mercedes might have been on to something. In fact what lies beneath that smart suit is overpriced, under-achieving and deeply disappointing."

Me thinks he did not get a Business class ticket, I wonder what he will write about the upcoming R-class?
