New Member-2015 C300 road noise?

I am considering purchasing a pre-owned 2015-2016 C300.

I have driven two recently, and was shocked at the road noise at just 55-60 mph. I drove one without a sunroof and one with the panoramic roof. Both had road noise and a rough ride.

Also, while sitting at a traffic light, I assumed a window was down as there was noise in the cabin from nearby traffic.

Is this common for a German vehicle in this price range? Consumer Reports states that the vehicle offers a quiet and smooth ride.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. I love the look of the C300 but do not want to be paying for just a nameplate.

Probably best to give this a read. Some are worse than others. We have no issues with our wagon but there is lots of complaints with the sedan.
Wind noise 65+ mph

Thanks for your help!

Obviously, this is a real problem. Dealer stated I may want to consider a 2016 E Class. I don't really care for the dated interior styling though.
