Would all-season tyres on my Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate increase comfort compared to the standard summer tyres?

Depends on the spec of the car. If it has sports suspension and/or 19-inch wheels, for example, a tyre change will probably not make a lot of difference to the road comfort. However, for a car on modest wheels and standard suspension, a deeper profile tyre will inevitably absorb more lumps and bumps in the road.

Much improved interior quality. More refined and better to drive than predecessor. Facelift diesels get new 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engines.
