You guys think this should be another Baby S Class or finally some 3 series competition from Mercedes? I know it's Mercedes tradition to have a small sedan that is a baby S class but would anyone else love to see what a small sports car from Mercedes could look like? Those sport packages just won't do anymore, although I can see how it wouldn't be in Merc's best interests to go a different route with the C class

Everybody seems to be wanting to have sport sedans in their line up nowadays. I think MB will go a sportier way with the next C, but they should keep it ( more ) focused on comfort.

What the hell are you talkingabout.. the current S-class handels mutch better/sportier then the BMW E46 .. (first hand experience)<br>BMW has become soft.. <br>Lets notforget the unstable ride you get from a BMW 3-series at 100kph/60mph (first hand experience) <p>the C-class is a "Sports Taxi" "version" of the 3-series :P<br>

I want a mini S-class. Cos the next s-class will rock, so if they make a mini sport one, then that would be madness!

I'll have to agree with you guys on this one. Kebab, are you sure the 3-series you were driving had all 4 wheels on?

The S-Class option is better - it is what they have always done and it works.
