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.

What's New for 2021?

A 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster is newly standard across the board, as are heated front seats. Plus, the sedan can be had with a Night package that adds black exterior trim.

Pricing and Which One to Buy

Unless you desire an open-air experience or the extra style of the coupe, the sedan is the most sensible and satisfying of the C-class models. The C300 comes standard with rear-wheel drive; Benz's 4Matic all-wheel-drive system is a $2000 option. Of the many available extras, we’d consider the $1500 Premium package, which adds SiriusXM satellite radio, an upgraded audio system, and ambient lighting. But beware that many of the option packages are bundled together and can push the price of a sedan well beyond $50,000.

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.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

The most fuel-efficient choice in the C-class lineup is the rear-drive C300, with EPA ratings of 24 mpg city and 33 mpg highway, but the 4Matic isn’t far behind, managing 23 and 33 mpg, respectively. Rivals such as the BMW 3-series offer better fuel economy (up to 26 mpg city and 36 mpg highway). A rear-drive C300 coupe we tested achieved a real-world result of 33 mpg on the highway—2 mpg better than its EPA rating.

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.

Infotainment and Connectivity

Mercedes-Benz equips the base C-class with a 7.0-inch central display screen, Bluetooth phone and streaming audio, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. Dual USB ports are standard, along with HD radio and a five-speaker sound system. If you want a bit more screen space, you can upgrade to a 10.3-inch central color display. Other options include a Burmester surround-sound audio system and an integrated navigation system.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-class hasn't yet been crash-tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), but the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) named it a Top Safety Pick +, earning a top score of Good in all crashworthiness measures. Key safety features include:

  • Standard automated emergency braking
  • Available lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assist
  • Available adaptive cruise control

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

The Mercedes-Benz C-class provides a warranty that's on par with the coverage offered by many of its rivals. Keep in mind, though, that you'll get longer warranty protection with the Genesis G70.

  • Limited warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles
  • Powertrain warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles
  • No complimentary scheduled maintenance

Overview

With a complete redesign in store for the 2022 Mercedes-Benz C-class, the entry-luxury car segment is in for a shakeup. The C-class has long served as the entry-point to the Mercedes-Benz lineup, but new additions to the brand in recent years such as the A-class sedan have allowed the C-class to move upmarket and better battle rivals such as the Audi A4, BMW 3-series, and Genesis G70. The all-new 2022 model will continue to be built on a rear-drive platform, will be powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and will offer all-wheel drive as an option. The cabin is where we see the most modernization, as the C-class inherits styling elements and technology from the newly-redesigned 2021 S-class sedan.

What's New for 2022?

In short: Everything. Even though the new C-class's styling isn't a huge departure from the 2021 model, the 2022 model year marks the start of a new generation with more luxury and a greater number of high-tech features. We expect to see the redesigned C-class in Mercedes dealerships by the end of 2022.

Pricing and Which One to Buy

Rather than serve up options a la carte, as it did on the previous generation car, Mercedes-Benz will offer three distinct trim levels on the 2022 C-class: Premium, Exclusive, and Pinnacle. A breakdown of available features indicates that the mid-range Exclusive trim should satisfy the broadest swath of buyers, as it includes niceties such as a 360-degree exterior camera system, a self-parking feature, wireless smartphone charging, and a Burmester premium stereo system. Although we expect Mercedes will continue to offer the C-class in coupe and convertible body styles, only the sedan will be available at launch. All models come standard with a large infotainment display, a digital gauge display, heated front seats, automated high-beam headlamps, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a sunroof, and much more. Mercedes-Benz's 4Matic all-wheel drive system is optional, but we'll leave that up to you to decide if you need it.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The 2022 C-class will continue to be powered by a 255-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, but this time around it's enhanced by a 48-volt hybrid system that can temporarily provide up to 20 extra horsepower. All-wheel drive remains an option with rear-wheel drive being the standard setup; a nine-speed automatic is the only gearbox offered. We haven't had a chance to test the 2022 C-class at our test track, but Mercedes-Benz estimates that it will hit 60 mph in 5.9 seconds. We believe that number is fairly conservative, since the previous generation C-class managed a 5.4-second result.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

The EPA hasn't posted fuel efficiency estimates for the 2022 C-class yet, but the new car's ratings shouldn't deviate much from the current model, which is rated at 23 mpg city and 33 mpg highway. When we get a chance, we'll put the new C-class through our 75-mph highway fuel economy test and report its results here. For more information about the C-class's fuel economy, visit the EPA's website.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

The most dramatic change for the C-class comes in the form of a new high-tech cabin. All models come with a digital gauge display, touch-sensitive controls, and a host of amenities. The new model sports a steering wheel that looks similar to that of the redesigned S-class sedans, and Mercedes offers a generous list of standard luxury features such as heated front seats with memory settings, a sunroof, open-pore wood trim, and aluminum accents. Overall, the 2022 C-class is about 2.5-inches longer than the outgoing model and its wheelbase has been stretched by an inch. Mercedes-Benz says that results in more rear-seat legroom, but we won't know how noticeable the difference is real-life until we get a chance to test-drive the new model.

Infotainment and Connectivity

A large, 12.3-inch vertically oriented infotainment display similar to the one in the redesigned S-class sedan sweeps up from the center console and toward a trio of round air vents on the upper dashboard. The touchscreen is tilted slightly toward the driver for easier use while driving and runs the most up-to-date version of Mercedes's MBUX infotainment system— complete with the voice-activated digital assistant, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and online access via a Wi-Fi hotspot. All models also come with an 11.9-inch digital gauge display and a fingerprint sensor to authenticate the driver's unique profile for memory settings. A head-up display, a wireless smartphone charging pad, an ambient lighting system, and a Burmester surround sound stereo system are all optional extras.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

Mercedes equips the C-class with a host of standard driver-assistance features but unfortunately the car's coolest tech, which includes an adaptive cruise-control system that utilizes navigation data to adjust the vehicle's speed for upcoming curves and roundabouts, is still optional. For more information about the C-class's crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites. Key safety features are likely to include:

  • Standard automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection
  • Available lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assist
  • Available adaptive cruise control with semi-autonomous driving mode

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

Although rivals such as BMW, Genesis, and Volvo offer three years of complimentary maintenance, Mercedes-Benz omits that benefit from its standard warranty offerings. Otherwise, all new Benz's come with an industry-standard plan that covers most things for up to four years or 50,000 miles.

  • Limited warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles
  • Powertrain warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles
  • No complimentary scheduled maintenance

C-Class Review

Mercedes Benz C300 AMG Line First Drive Review

What is it?

This is the facelift of the latest generation Mercedes C-Class. But as you can tell from its aggressive front bumper and those gorgeous wheels, this is no ordinary C. It has an AMG in its name. 

Okay, in the interest of honesty, this one isn’t of the pop and crackle variety. And it doesn’t do the ‘disappearing in a cloud of smoke’ trick all that well either. So yes, it isn’t a ‘proper’ AMG in that sense. 

What’s more, this one is a diesel. But thankfully it is a potent one. One with nearly 250bhp and an outstanding 500Nm of peak torque. No wonder Mercedes claims a sub-six-second 0-100kmph time for this one.

How is it on the inside?

As we mentioned earlier, the C300d is the facelifted version. And that means, apart from the head and tail lamps on the outside, it gets some new and feel-good bits on the inside too. 

The steering, for starters, is new. And it gets touchpads on the steering spokes to operate the extremely detailed driver information system and the new multimedia system. These touchpads don’t just look good, these function well too.

The screen is new too. It still doesn’t have touchscreen functionality, but it is a high-resolution one. It is part of the Mercedes COMAND system, which allows the driver to access car-related settings from driving modes to climate control to mood lighting. It gives out service-related info as well. And for the geeky ones amongst us, there’s info on the amount of power and torque one uses at a given instance, as well as the amount of acceleration and braking being used. Rounding up the new bits is the wood finish on the centre console. It’s what Mercedes calls porus wood because it isn’t varnished. 

The rest of the cabin is mostly unchanged. It still has super comfy seats, front and back; a great quality cabin with crisp operability all round; and features by the page load. The latter includes a multifunctional steering wheel that is electrically adjustable for reach and rake, electrically powered front seats that are 12-way adjustable, dual-zone climate control system with rear AC vents, electric sunblind for the rear, and cup and bottle holders for occupants on all corners.

The C300d is loaded with tech too. Apart from the regular safety kit - many airbags, ABS and stability program - the 300d also get an auto parking brake, cruise control, auto wipers and headlamps, auto-dimming mirrors, and enough smartness to tell if the driver needs to take a break of not! There are driving modes too - Eco, Comfort, Sport, Sport+, and Individual. The latter is for those who can’t stand presets. 

How does it drive?

Now, the C300d might have AMG in its name - and it has potent output figures, no question - but, it still isn’t as mad as AMGs go. Plus, all the sense of occasion that the popping and crackling of an AMG exhaust brings, is conspicuous by its absence on the 300d.

But it is a lovely car to drive. Toggle to Comfort mode, and the light but quick and precise steering, the adequately alert throttle response, and the seamless gear changes, make the C300d both easy and enjoyable to drive. Plus the visibility, particularly at the front, courtesy the not-so-fat A-pillars and a low set dashboard, is fantastic. It is remarkably effortless and relaxing to drive on your daily commute. 

And when you take it on the highway, with all that torque and a 9-speed automatic, the C300d sits at 100kmph as if the engine were just idling. Even the straight line stability is outstanding. Unless you look at the speedometer, you wouldn’t be able to tell that you are doing three digit speeds. That’s how quiet and unhurried and easygoing the C300d feels.

But, it’s no slouch around corners either. It does have AMG in its name, after all. Shift to Sport+ mode and the steering weighs up a bit. The throttle response feels more alert. And the gearbox holds each gear for a bit longer to give the driver a stronger and more instant drive out of corners.

But, it’s the light-footedness of this C around corners that took us by surprise. It’s like a boxer - nimble, alert and quick - in the way it changes direction. There’s no hesitation or delay. And no matter how hard you fire it into a corner - wet roads or not - it always seems to find grip. And it is amazingly neutral in its handling balance. There’s just no understeer to be found! Plus, the harder you drive it through a set of corners, the wider the smile it returns. 

The only real negative when it comes to C300d’s drive is the ride quality. At slow speeds and over small bumps and ditches, the C feels fine. It also rides flat over undulating roads. But, over something more pronounced - squared out bumps or potholes, or even larger road joints or broken tarmac patches - the 300d can feel crashy. Its ride can get noisy and thumpy; something that one doesn’t expect from, what is otherwise, a pampering car to be transported in.

Should I buy one?

The Mercedes C300d AMG Line retails for nearly Rs 60 lakhs on the road in Mumbai. So it isn’t exactly mouth-wateringly tempting. But it is the most powerful diesel C-Class one can buy in the country. And apart from a slightly lumpy ride and an engine that gets noisy when you dial up the revs, there’s nothing not to like. 

Where does it fit in?

The C300d competes against the likes of the BMW 3-Series and the Audi A4. More precisely, that would be the 320d Luxury Line in the case of BMW, which costs five lakhs less. But then the BMW doesn’t pack in as much firepower either. The A4 that goes head-to-head against this particular C, is the 35 TDI Technology trim. It is easier on the wallet by rupees two lakhs approximately, but in terms of output figures, it is almost identical to the 3-Series.

Mercedes C-Class 2021 review - S-Class luxury for less!

This Is The True Cost Of Owning A Mercedes C-Class

By Cory Barclay

ShareTweetEmail

The cost of a Mercedes C-class depends on the costs out the door, repairs, taxes and fees, financing, fuel, maintenance, and depreciation.

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is one of the least expensive Mercedes out there (besides the A-Class). The cheapest C 300 Sedan starts at $41,400, while the C 300 Coupe is $45,950, and the C 300 Cabriolet is $53,950. Then there are the other Cs like the AMG C 63 S Cabriolet ($89,000), the C 300 4MATIC in all styles, and more. Basically, it’s one of Mercedes's most popular products, and its price point is competitive with the Audi A4 ($39,100) and the 2021 BMW 3 Series ($41,250).

That being said, the C-Class can quickly jump up in price for you if you’re not careful. Repair costs increase as you move up the model line. And since it’s a luxury model (more features and a bigger engine than the A-Class, for instance), with advanced features and tech, more things can go wrong, and that can get pricey. Maintenance costs are generally higher than other cars in the same market segment (except BMWs, which far and away have the highest costs there).

So, what’s the true cost of owning a C-Class? Well, it depends on which one you get. Then it depends on the costs out the door and the expected 5-year ownership costs, which includes repairs, taxes and fees, financing, fuel, maintenance, and the biggie: depreciation.

Base Price And Costs Out The Door

When you’re buying a Mercedes C-Class, just like any other car, you need to take these things into consideration: insurance, fees, taxes, financing, fuel, maintenance costs, repairs, and depreciation. It seems like a lot, and that’s because it is.

According to Edmunds.com, the 5-year ownership cost of a 2020 C 300 4-door sedan, with a cash price of $47,048 (which is $6,000 more than the base price, so that must mean with add-ons), is $67,320. That’s $20,272 more than the actual cash price, or $4,054 extra per year!

So, where do most of these costs come into play? The biggest one is depreciation, which we’ll touch on in a bit. Depreciation is something that affects all cars, right when you roll the car off the lot, so there’s not much you can do about it. Yes, luxury cars like Mercedes and BMWs and Audis lose their value faster, which is a shame.

Right out the door, here are the first-year costs that you’ll be expected to spend according to Edmunds: $1,600 for insurance; $311 for maintenance; $3,940 for taxes and fees, which is a big one and is dependent on what state you live in; $2,530 for financing, which goes down year in and year out; $1,983 for fuel, which is a bit arbitrary and depends on a lot of things, such as how much you drive; and $12,106 for depreciation.

That’s a whopping $10,368 in actual costs over the price of the car, not including the $12,106 for depreciation, which doesn’t directly come out of your pocket, but rather the equity in the car.

Repair And Maintenance Costs

Some of the biggest costs for a Mercedes—and for luxury German cars in general—are repair and maintenance. German cars have many specialty parts, which often need to be ordered and cost more than just finding it in a junkyard or something. And with so many parts, things can go wrong more easily.

A BMW is still about $5,000 more expensive in the long run to own in terms of repair and maintenance than a Mercedes. But Mercedes is creeping up there. According to Edmunds, going by the 5-year plan, in year one your maintenance will be $311, and repairs should be $0. In fact, for the first three years of ownership repairs are at $0, and in years four and five those go up to $1,185 and $1,822, respectively. But those are pretty arbitrary numbers. If you’re safe (and lucky), those repair costs could be $0 for all five years.

Maintenance, not so much. After year one, we have $1,178 for year two, $759 for year three, $3,024 for year four, and $2,509 for year five. That’s a total of $7,781 in maintenance over five years for a C-Class, on average! And obviously, maintenance is something you shouldn't do yourself, so that can add to expenses.

Depreciation And Total Figures

Depreciation on a Mercedes is huge, and pretty much everyone knows that. In the first year, your $41,000 car (or $47,000 car in this example) depreciates $12,106. That’s around 25%. That number goes way down each year thereafter, from $3,695 in year two, to $2,956 in year five, but it averages at about 6-7% per year. That means after five years, your C-Class is worth $25,158 less, or less than half of what it was worth when you owned it.

We’re not saying not to buy a C-Class. They’re luxurious, fun, and a nice car from one of the most trusted automobile makers. We’re just saying that you need to budget yourself to spend more than the $41,400 it might cost at the base. And remember, even then, with add-ons, you’re unlikely to spend $41,400 on the car upfront, and more likely to spend the $47,000 or so that Edmunds suggests, or $67,000 after five years.
