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.
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.
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.
