    I have to renew my company car, I currently drive a C220 CDi (2007).

    I can choose to get another C220 CDi but it will cost £90 a month more than the 2007 model (the es model does not exist anymore) or for £35 a month less the CLC 180K.

    I have read reviews that are not very complimentary about the new CLC, but the reviews about the new C220 are very good.

    Is the CLC as bad as the reviews make out?

    The Mercedes are on a special offer, The C200 is not on the specials list!

    Got the C180k on the list, but that is only £15 a month less than the C220.

    Pay the extra £90/month. It will be worth it for a 204.

    The new CLC is built in Brazil if that's of interest. The C class is built in Germany.
    Some folks don't worry about this but to some its important??

    I would go for the C220Cdi (sport or normal)

    Looks a lot more car than the CLC imho (how much is actually new on the CLC? is it a facelifted old model underneath) where as the New C class is new.

    I may even get it in RED as I spotted a red sport C220 at our locak garage and it looked very nice.

    Opted for the C220 CDi, only extras allowed were telephone pre wiring and metallic paint. Still, what more do you need?

    I think there is a 4 month lead in. Looks like Feb, but I have got a message to call them back, so it might be sooner, or later!

    I have to give back the 2007 CDi in Feb.
