In the older model, benz use W for winter and S for standard, in new model benz replace the naming of W to C for comfort.
So basiclly C is same things as W winter gear.
The different is that C was start the car from 2nd Gear, change gear at lower rpm, its better to use to drive at the current situration in with snow.
The reason why the car is rubbish is snow, is because the car is Rear wheel drive, ford is front wheel drive.
and this is a common problem with rwd in snow, such as bmw, benz. My dad slk is even worst at snow without winter tyres, its get stuck so much, that now he just park it in the drive way and use a bmw for the time being, which it would still be slighty better than the slk in snow.
however it is still driveable without winter tyres, just drive slowly, no suddent brake, suddent turn or suddent accelatration.
And never do two things at the same time, only do one at a time.
Also our ESP system help to prevent sliding and skiding of the car, however when going uphill or start off from deep snow, may consider turn off esp to get the car start then turn back on, once the car is moving.
Because during those situration we will require the extra power from wheel spin to help the car be unstuck.
