The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedans aren't that spacious for back-seat riders, but they offer top-notch luxury along with a sporty flavor that takes aim at BMW. The 2011 Infiniti G Sedans remain one of the top choices driving enthusiasts willing to sacrifice a little comfort for responsiveness and poise.
