Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

The look and feel of the C-class cabin is appropriately ritzy, although it’s not as modern-looking as some of the newer models in Mercedes lineup, such as the recently redesigned S-class. A touchscreen hovers above a sleek center stack that hosts three circular air vents. The switchgear feels weighty and substantial, and opting for the available leather upholstery and wood interior accents takes the cabin even further uptown. Sedans offer 13 cubic feet of trunk space. That figure is on par with the cargo capacity of the Audi A4, but it’s a lot less than you’ll get with the BMW 3-series, which delivers 17 cubic feet.

Overview

Some entry-luxury cars are too sporty and others are too soft, but Mercedes-Benz’s C-class falls in the sweet spot. It even earned a spot on our Editors’ Choice list. In its standard C300 form, it combines a quiet and comfortable ride with just the right amount of handling acuity—and if you want more power and performance, Mercedes offers the AMG C43 and C63 models, which we review separately. The C300 is available in sedan, coupe, and convertible models. Although the current generation is nearing the end of its life cycle, it still has plenty of modern technology, and its interior and exterior designs have aged well. A redesigned C-class is expected to arrive within the next year or so.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

A turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine powers all C300 models and generates 255 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque, getting the Mercedes off the line without delay. A nine-speed automatic transmission performs shifting duties. Rear-wheel drive is standard, but you can get all-wheel drive (called 4Matic) for two grand more. In our testing of a C300 4Matic sedan, the car hit 60 mph in a sprightly 5.4 seconds. The engine is appropriately muted at idle and at highway speeds, but its soundtrack at full throttle is less pleasing than you’d expect. In our recent comparison test of entry-luxury sports sedans, the C300’s acceleration results put it about midpack, as the BMW 330i and Alfa Romeo Giulia 2.0T were quicker.
