    Speaking about the award, Dr Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of Mercedes-Benz, said: “The C-Class has always been a trendsetter in the premium medium-size category. This is true for the new C-Class as well. It comes to the starting line with qualities usually reserved for higher-class automobiles. It embodies what we understand modern automotive luxury made by Mercedes-Benz to be and has all the prerequisites to be a huge success.

    How do Citroen keep selling cars ? must be to all the folks who like to be different but don't mind cheap plastic design that probably came out of a kinder egg and don't want it to last.
    OR like the friendly helpful staff at the Citroen service desk, when it breaks down again with a random electrical problem.

    I've currently got a Pug 2008 diesel from Avis as my UK runabout. I was given the choice between that an an Astra or Focus, and this is definitely the nicer looking car with a torquey, quiet diesel lump. It's got a big screen satnav, all leathered up and feels anything but cheap. I'd say they've turned a corner.

    Citroen / Peugeot have certainly got a lot better than they used to be fucked electrics etc but I still would not buy one for myself - as a lease or hire car maybe but not owning one

    I used to hire ars every week and sadly that was a lot of Peugeots, Vauxhalls, allsorts really and a lot of Citroens from Picassos to Grand Picassos and a C4 but had a 2.0l DS4 one week and the thing went like a rocket and was very well kitted out. Drove nice but stopped working with my iPhone properly after a few days. Had a DS5 which was entertaining as well and had a reversing camera which was weird but good. Again after driving a few I wouldn't buy one but they were better than I expected.

    I drive Mercedes all day everyday (shunt driver) and although the S-Class is in a league and price bracket of its own, the C-Class is an outstanding car to drive.

    The C-63 by AMG is an absolute animal and if you have the spare £60K knocking about, I couldn't recommend it enough.

    Personally, on the subject of French motors, they should stick to food and wine!

    German engineering is far superior and more innovative.

    Fun fact:
    If you want to know what's coming next as new features to vehicles, take a look at the extras in an S-Class. They always lead the pack. Example, car seats fitted with Shiatsu massagers, full length LCD dashboards and rear reversing camera with parking sensors as standard. Most new ideas for in car extras originated from the S-Class.
