I took my E220 CDI Estate in to Hughes of Beaconsfield today to fix a couple of minor problems before the warranty expires. I was given a C180K Sport (auto) as a loan car. Compared to my car, the C180K Sport seemed very light, especially the steering. It was pretty nippy too. I managed to slide the back end out on a damp roundabout - which is a bit worrying because I wasn't going fast at all. The interior styling is angular, if rather plasticy. The sport seats are comfortable but firm. Overall, I was very pleasantly surprised by the ease of driving it both around town and on the motorway. The auto box was fine - and you can set it to manual mode if you prefer. The opinion of several passengers was that it was nice, but not as comfortable as the E-Class. However, it does fit in a normal parking space.
