Mercedes-Benz C-Class Overview

The redesigned C-Class has grown larger inside and out, and remains beautifully finished. C300s use a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder, which returned a respectable 26-mpg overall in our AWD version. A 3.0-liter turbo V6 powers the C400. The new C has quick reflexes, with very prompt steering response and a comfortable ride. Inside, you'll find an upscale and snazzy execution with a high-quality feel to every surface, switch, and button. Many safety-oriented features are available, such as semi-autonomous highway steering and standard autonomous braking. The rear seat, a low point of the last C-Class, has been markedly improved. The rip-roaring C63 AMG gets a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 producing 456-hp in standard form or 503-hp in the S version.
