Is the suspension comfy on this Mercedes?

Morning all, I hope youre well.

I'm looking at a used Mercedes C 220 d estate in AMG Line trim (2019), with passive sports suspension on 18-inch rims. Comfort and refinement are my priorities, after years of putting up with overly firm rides. Unfortunately, I can't test drive the car because of the current Covid lockdown. What do you reckon? Would my fillings loosen up or is it a more relaxed setup than that?

Any advice appreciated,

Hi Jeremy,

Sorry to say that's almost impossible to answer for you. What one person thinks is acceptable, another may call uncomfortable. My gut instinct is that it will be ok, as it's 'only' on 18-inch wheels, though the sports suspension will undoubtedly firm it up. If it's a deal-breaker for you, then I'd suggest waiting until you can test-drive the car. It's the only way to know for certain.
