About the Mercedes-Benz C-Class
As one of the most successful models in the Mercedes-Benz lineup, the iconic C-Class Sedan is packed with technology and proven performance capabilities. New lower body styling, wheel choices, and all-LED lighting help to emphasize the athletically elegant shape of the C-Class. Power comes in the form of a 2.0-liter inline-4 turbo engine paired to a responsive 9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic transmission. A precision-crafted interior perfectly complements the luxurious driving experience you’ll enjoy with the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto let you enjoy more from your own smartphone. Power front seats with memory and power thigh support for driver ensure maximum comfort no matter how long the journey takes. When it comes to small luxury sedans, many try valiantly yet still fail to emulate the excellence represented by the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
What the Critics Say
The 2019 refresh brought minimal changes to the interior quality and design, largely because none were needed. Real wood trim pieces adorn the doors and center stack, and things like the air vents have a retro-futuristic look. The standard leatherette upholstery is comfortable, while more opulent options like Nappa leather are available. All in all, the C-Class’ sleek, modern, and luxurious cabin is one of the nicest in the class.” — U.S. News & World Report
It’s been four years since this generation of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class was introduced, and the company is wasting no time updating the luxury car with all its latest know-how. From more powerful yet more efficient powertrains, to an even more impressive array of technologies, the 2019 C-Class continues to stake its place at the heart of the class.” — CNET
