Mercedes-Benz C-Class Overview

Mercedes' C-Class is agile, quiet, and comfortable. The C250 has a smooth 1.8-liter turbo four-cylinder and a seven-speed automatic that shifts seamlessly. We got 24 mpg overall. The C300 and C350 use more powerful V6 engines, and the C300 offers AWD. We liked the handling and taut, steady ride in our tested Luxury trim. The Sport has better cornering grip but a stiffer ride. The front seats are comfortable and supportive, but the rear is tight. Some controls are not particularly logical. The C63 AMG is a delight, and a coupe is available. Reliability has been average. A new, roomier C-Class goes on sale this fall.
