I got a C230 as a courtesy car today since my mom's ML is in the shop and the difference is NIGHT and DAY!

It's so much more responsive than the ML, brakes, acceleration, EVERYTHING. It's everything I hoped that a Mercedes was before I was disappointed by the ML. The suspension is well dampened, leans very little in the corners but keeps the ride very comfortable.

I like how the brakes are setup on the C-Class. I do get feedback, maybe I'm just weird and the steering is decently sharp as well.

Lastly, I love how whisper quiet the cabin is, even on the highway. For the ML, to go highway speeds tend to lend to a lot of wind noise, especially if you opt for the ski-rack rails to be installed, which cannot be taken out very easily once installed. I hit 140km/h and the car was still stable and felt it can go higher easily.

Though the engine does become audible around 2,750 - 3,000RPM+. Though that can be because I have the 1.8L Kompressor engine, with a bigger engine, I'd assume the revs would be much lower.
