The compact C-Class sedan's competency stands alongside death and taxes on the list of life's guarantees.

A midcycle refresh for the 2019 model year solidifies its spot on that list.

There's enough feel from the dampers to give the ride some character, but bumps and other annoyances don't immediately translate to the bodies inside.

The decent sidewalls on my tester's 225/45R18 Pirelli Sottozero winter tires also help matters.

Most of my week with the C300 involves snow, but it's no problem for me, thanks in part to 4Matic all-wheel drive.
