2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Bound for Showrooms in August, Starting at $39,875

ATLANTA — The 2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan will arrive at Mercedes-Benz dealerships in August, starting at $39,875, including a $925 destination charge.

Pricing reflects a $550 increase over the base 2015 C-Class.

The top-of-the-line 2016 Mercedes-Benz C63 S AMG is priced at $73,625, including shipping.

Changes for the 2016 model year include the introduction of three new C-Class variants. They are the C450 AMG 4Matic, which replaces the C400 4Matic; C350e Plug-in Hybrid and C300d 4Matic.

Pricing has not been announced on the C300d 4Matic, which will arrive in showrooms in February. Mercedes-Benz said further information about this diesel model will be announced closer to its on-sale date.

The C350e rolls out in September in ZEV states only, with pricing announced closer to launch. States with zero-emission vehicle mandates include California, New York and Vermont.

The C450 AMG 4Matic also arrives at dealerships in September, with pricing announced at that time.

The base C-Class is a carryover model with minimal changes. They include a new optional heated steering wheel, the addition of a designo Cardinal Red interior and the debut of a Parking Assist package with surround-view camera.

Key C-Class competitors include the Audi A5, BMW 3 Series and Lexus IS.

Edmunds says: Even with a modest price increase, the base 2016 C-Class is still one of the most accessible and affordable cars in the Mercedes lineup.
