Mid sized saloon with comfortable ride
I like Mercedes but need to change my C180k automatic. What under 50k miles car would you suggest with as many of the features and build quality of the Mercedes but a suspension to give the most comfortable ride over deteriorating UK road surfaces? Budget £10k - £12k.

A big improvement on the previous C-Class. Feels well built and robust. Very comfortable and refined. High quality ride. Good CDI diesels.
