2017 GLE 350d, navy-blue, --- SWMBO's car, 2007 SL 350, (R230) silver.
Came quite close to ordering a GLC 250 petrol with most of the bells and whistles, earlier in the week. Then the salesman very kindly let us borrow a demonstrator to go home and put the thawing freezer items away, then return to the dealership.

Maybe i'm getting jaded in my senior years, but there was no excitement in the experience at all. Quality, quiet, competent ........................ but dull. Did I miss something? Or is the autonomous kit sucking all the character out of new cars? Am I all alone or is it only me?(Glen Campbell)

May have to stick with the V8 for a bit!

Hardly a comparison though the GLC250 to a V8, invest in a SL63 R231 instead and rejuvenate your soul

Pretty screamingly obvious conclusion. The only thing to compare to a V8 is a remapped V6 ;)
