    Mercedes C-class

    THE C-class mid-term facelift sees a fresher exterior, smarter interior, new six-speed manual transmission and Euro IV-compliant four-cylinder diesels (manual-only for now).

    It has long led the premium upper-medium pack for residual values and a simplified range structure, with SE packs standard on Avantgarde and Elegance models, should shore up its position. Manual transmissions have never been a strong Mercedes-Benz point, but this one works rather well.

    Jaguar S-type

    THE S-type has been given a new lease of life with cleaner styling, more modern interior details and a long-awaited V6 common rail diesel.

    Aggressively priced compared with other diesel executive cars, it offers better performance than similar priced rivals and class-leading refinement.

    A six-speed manual is available for lower CO2 emissions but more than 90% of sales are expected to be the six-speed automatic.
