The C-Class is the Complete Package

Compared to its three competitors, the 2018 C 300 pulls ahead with a smart blend of power, fuel-efficiency, and top-notch features. Performance-wise, it produces more torque and is comparably fuel-efficient. Additionally, the C-Class interior comes with several exclusive features, including memory settings and optional cooled seats. You’ll also enjoy the peace of mind that comes with emergency telematics and a pre-collision system, neither of which are offered by our three competitors.
