When it was redesigned for 2015, the Mercedes-Benz C300 scored near the top of the sports sedan segment. This iteration of the C-Class has a beautiful interior and delivers a driving experience that is close to ideal when it comes to balancing performance and comfort. Simply put, the C300 delivers the driving pleasure people expect from the brand. For those new to Mercedes-Benz, we think you'll find the C300 comfortable, quiet, agile and altogether well done.
Our test car included 4Matic all-wheel drive, a rear camera, blind-spot assist, a sunroof, heated seats and the Premium package, which brought a Burmester audio system and LED headlights. Dipping liberally into the options list can be very expensive.
The base model C300 got a 241-hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The up-level C400 (now called C450) was bumped up to a 329-hp, 3.0-liter turbo V6.
