A majority of car review sites give the Mercedes C220 fairly positive reviews, though there are some factors that prevent these sites from giving near-perfect ratings. Most sites promote the luxurious interior of the C220, but find the infotainment system complicated to operate.
The Mercedes C220 gets an overall rating of eight out of 10 from Top Gear for its dynamic consistency, comfort, easy-to-use technology and terrific calibration. The U.K. based automobile magazine did find the Mercedes fell short when matching it with the BMW 3 Series, however. U.S. News, on the other hand, thought the C220's onboard infotainment system was difficult to use, but gave it an overall rating of 8.9 out of 10 for its responsive base engine, lush cabin and composed ride.
