2013 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C300 Sport 4MATIC 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


Review

This little car makes getting around town a breeze. On long trips, the fuel costs are as promised by marketing literature. Handling on wet or icy roads has been reassuring due to the sturdy feel of the braking and steering systems. Great visibility throughout for safer lane changes, etc. Love the mocha/almond interior and seat warmers. Temperature zones adjust beautifully for individual comfort. Trip facts on mileage, time and distance are well laid out. Sound system suits the mood by caressing or rocking riders.

2013 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C300 Sport 4MATIC 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


Review

Purchased my 2013 C300 4matic AMG package from an off lease company 2 weeks ago with only 21k. The car is finished in magnitte black mica with all of the AMG touches you would expect from Mercedes. From the exterior the car has a lowered ride heigh, specifically tuned for the AMG models as Mercedes claims, lowered exactly 0.5mm / more aggressive front styling / side sills and rear bumper matched with an AMG rear trunk spoiler which is very inconspicuous until up close. Nice touches. On the inside, it keeps going. 2 tone suede inserts with faux leather sides, the front seats are heavily bolstered and could feel it immediately while sitting, let alone driving, no movement of any kind coming from my 5'6 140 pound body. Feels like a glove around you. Interior dash is brushed aluminum with clear and easy to read dials of all kinds, the COMAND system is amazing and simple to used compared to MMI and other units. The black headline is a nice touch as well.the 3 spoke multifunctional steering wheel is firm and has a solid feel to it, it's also stitched in red to to match the Interior accents, the biggest obvious part of the AMG package is the red seatbelts, Terrific addition to set it apart from other models and this feature is limited to only the AMG package. Throw on factory 18' AMG sport rims and low profile tires and the car is now more set apart from the crowd. Overall I am pleased with this car, VS. a BMW. Why? Because Mercedes is more then a status symbol, often it's overlooked for its mechanical achievement and reliability as opposed to be related to having money.

2013 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C250 Sport 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 7A)


Review

My dad bought a c250 sport sedan used with 8900 miles from RBM north. He has put 21 thousand miles on it in least than a year, he loves it. It is like driving a go kart it's a true sport sedan. The brakes are outstanding, the handling is sublime, the acceleration is great. The build quality is top notch the door panels are solid the gaps between the panels are practically invisible, no other car is built as good as a MB. Average 23 mpg, maintenance is inexpensive , hasn't given any problems. The interior is well designed, luxurious and looks interesting with two tone MB tex. Dual exhaust should come standard as well as 18 inch wheels. Back seats are cramped and narrow.


Best Features

Fun to drive, keyless go and entry, automatic windshield washer, agile handling


Worst Features

Exterior is not as shocking as newer mb cars, Tiptronic does not give you the control you get from a Manuel transmission,

2013 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C300 Luxury 4MATIC 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


Review

I purchased my 2013 C300 luxury 4matic in November of 2012. The new dash redesign inspired by the E-Class was a big improvement over the old design. The ext and int fit and finish is flawless. Great V6 acceleration. The ride is firm, smooth & quiet. The opt leather seats are firm & comfortable but lack a full range of adjustment for the front seat bottoms. I get 27-30 mpg on the highway. 7 spd trans shifts smoothly. Nav system works well. Blind spot warning feature is excellent. Get the keyless go feature. Glove box is to small. The blue tooth phone system is very clear to the person being called. The last C-Class to be built in Germany for the US market. A car to keep for a long time.


Best Features

keyless go, nav system (built into the dashboard instead of tacked on like the 2015 model), blue tooth. smooth comfortable ride, great pick up, blind spot warning system, overall fit and finish, beautiful interior and exterior (steel gray metallic with tan leather interior). harmon cardin sound system (with many input options) is awesome. excellent mpg for a 248hp engine, I passed on the zenon headlights. the standard lights work great. Sirius radio, advanced safety features, vault like structure, reliable so far (13,000 miles), car get lots of complements.


Worst Features

enlarge the glove box, needs a left foot "dead" pedal, Carpeting is not as good as the older benz's, seat adjustment range could be better especially for the seat bottoms (my 1990 190E 2.6 seat adjustments had more positions and were more comfortable) back up camera needs guidance lines, no power folding option for the exterior mirrors, no full size spare even though there is room for one (I put a full size tire and wheel in and it fits),
