Talking point - the W205 C-Class: Finally another "right-sized" Benz?

What always struck me about the W124 was its size: neither too big nor too small, but just right. The last time I rode in a W211 was a few days ago and like I always did, I thought it was a tad too big (or rather more probably, at 5'3", I'm too small ). In the few times I drove W203's and W204's, I thought they probably shouldn't have gotten into this who "compact" business. But when I first saw the W205 in person this month, I thought they finally came out with something as "right-sized" as the W124 was.

What do you think?

I drive too fast to worry about cholesterol.
1994 E320: Full circle.
1987 Mercedes 300E: Sold. With perpetual regret.
2008 Mazda Miata GT PRHT: Forgotten and not missed.
2009 Mazda 6 JDM 2.5 MTX: Sold.
2009 Mazda 6 JDM 2.5 MTX: Wife's.
1991 Mitsubishi Lancer (Mirage): Mom's. Love that thing.
1992 GMC Typhoon: The One That Got Away.
2005 Mazda6 JDM ATX 2.3: Fun (in the slow lane.)
2005 Mazda6 JDM MTX 2.3: Who needs a V8?

Still not big enough. Bought a w212 for the family and a w204 for me to go to work in. I agree that the w204 is small but it's great for a rush hour drive or a single person running to work. The w205 just wasn't quite big enough to be multipurpose for my family.
