It's not. Sometimes I wish it was, because I think the added length would've allowed for a sexier roofline.

Interior looks like typical Mercedes to me- that angular design really reminded me how they used to look in the 90's and before. I do hope they bring some emotion to the next-gen though, it needs it....

The front end or rear end of the C-class (depending on the generation) has looked like the S-class in the past. I have to say, it literally a baby S-class this time around though.

I would negotiate down to 30-31k if I were you. That's not a bad deal though- I would feel good about knocking off just a grand even.

Better in terms of longevity? That is a stretch.

Having said that, OP test drive both. If that extra power matters to you, get a 535i and never look back. The 528i is hardly a slug but the 535i...
