I didn't expect much in the way of performance, but the brakes were so soft, that felt I needed to make a reservation if I wanted to stop at a particular location. ;)

I've sat in and driven C classes and their interiors have much nicer materials. Granted it is is no ordinary C class, but he C63 that I just drove is comparable to my '13 650xi with extended leather.

In the case of the OP's 650cxi the weight difference is only 130lbs (4650 vs. 4520). The great news is the 650's xDrive actually lowers the car's center of gravity and it creates an advantage of...

I guess the OP doesn't know about the 600hp 3.5L V6 in the Ford GT. Today's engines still scale quite well with displacement.
