    Looking at the c class and e class, must admit I like the look of the e class as I have had a c class before, so what would you go for

    An E Class needs six cylinders, not four.

    E Class with 8 cylinders works :D

    My thoughts is that it was left under the hairdryer too long and it melted, of the jelly wasn't left in the fridge long enough to set properly

    Exactly, there's plenty of room in a C class for most people, a tall family would benefit from a bigger car though.
    I wouldn't get an E class in my garage, bigger is not always better.

    Yes it does have that droopy look to it. I've seen a few CLA45's now, I don't mind them, but then again I am led by performance a bit!

    I suppose one question could be do you have a modern house with a modern size garage. If so would it be a tight squeeze with an 'E' ?

    Edited that ;)

    Not a fan of the CLA, would go for an A or GLA 250 petrol if I wanted that size car

    Which is why I was silent! CLA43 (or is it 45?)would be decent though
    Strangely quite like the look but I’m not sure what it’s trying to be though?

    It's trying to be a C Class Coupe.

    For me, it's beautiful from some angles, awful from others and in general, just too cramped-looking to be comfy.
