2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Most Satisfying Aspirational Luxury Car

Best in Class 2012 Aspirational Luxury Car:  Mercedes-Benz C-Class

2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Wins AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction Award

The top satisfying car in the Aspirational Luxury Car Class for 2012 is the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.  The C-Class wins not by achieving top scores in many categories in AutoPacific’s Vehicle Satisfaction Award research, but by having a solid performance in most.  It is top rated in only one category, Cupholder Design and Size.  While this may seem very minor, it is rare for a German vehicle to even think of having a good cupholder.  With a possible high score of 5.0 on each of 48 characteristics, owners of the C-Class rated the car 4.7 or higher on several, including:  Overall Satisfaction, Vehicle’s Reputation, Brand’s Reputation,  Exterior Color, Exterior Styling, Fun to Drive, Reliable/Dependable, Feeling Safe While Driving, Safety Features, and Overall Quality.  The lowest satisfaction from owners of the C-Class were in fuel economy, rear seat comfort, cargo capacity and flexible seating.
