Absolute pleasure to drive
Traded in my 2014 C250 coupe. This is my second C300 sedan. Wow! This car is so nice to drive. Quiet, composed, sporty when you want it to be. I've gotten so many compliments on how beautiful the car is. I didn't get the larger wheels because I wanted the ride to be as soft as possible. Added the $5000 package and it has all the luxury i need. Seats are extremely comfortable, Steering is concise and light. Gear shifts using the paddles are immediate. Fuel economy is pretty good. Averaging 27 mpg combined. If I had one complaint it would be the back seats. They are a bit uncomfortable. Sit a an odd angle and I didn't really feel comfortable in them. Not that I care, really. It's all about the driver seat and that is superb!
Great but not so great
Steep learning curve for the instruments in general and navigation system in particular. Wish they had just used CarPlay, which has native smart phone integration. Programming the nav while driving is extremely distracting. Voice recognition is terrible. Lacks alternate route capability. No advice on traffic avoidance. I do like the freeway advices on services available at oncoming off ramps, but google maps or apple maps are much better. Headrests are superb -- all the other cars these days have head rests far too forward in response to recent federal standards, including the E-class, giving me a pain in the neck just sitting in the parking lot. But the seats are VERY firm. Park bench firm, and not comfortable for long drives. Steering and handling are very light and precise. Fold-down seats make for cavernous cargo capacity. I've lost $10,000 in resale value the first year, which is ridiculous, as this car seems like it's built to last forever and is very high quality.
One major flaw
The one big flaw on this car may seem petty to some, but to me it's a big deal. You cannot adjust the sun visor when using it on the side. For some ignorant reason, Mercedes removed the "sliding" feature which allowed one to move the visor forward or backward based on the sun's position. To me this is a safety issue and a big mistake. I hope they correct it or I will look for a different manufacturer next time.

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class began life as the smallest Mercedes (the "Baby Benz"), but has now grown to near midsize proportions, offering a level of roominess and comfort that rivals many larger cars. With the CLA-Class taking over as the compact Mercedes, the C-Class models are no longer entry-level vehicles. But with a wide range of trim levels and price points, they can still hit the mark for shoppers looking for a modest-size luxury car.

The C-Class sedan underwent a major refresh for the 2015 model year, so the big news for 2017 is the revamped coupe. What was previously more of a two-door sedan has been transformed into the sportiest C-Class model available, with firmly tuned suspension, a lower stance and design cues that finally separate it from its four-door sibling. From the diamond grille and long hood to the low greenhouse and sloping rear roofline, the new coupe proudly displays its own unique style.

Sedan or coupe, the luxurious design of the C-Class interior is sure to have wide appeal, and the choice of materials — wood veneer, gleaming brightwork and lush seating surfaces — won't disappoint even the most discriminating buyers. There's plenty of room for front-seat occupants to stretch out, although additional passengers might find entry into the backseat a bit of a challenge. And even though the feel of the interior is classic, there's no shortage of modern technology available, including the latest version of the Mercedes COMAND infotainment interface.

The standard powerplant is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 241 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque and comes linked to a seven-speed automatic transmission. Not enough power for you? There's also an AMG C43 model with a 363-horsepower twin-turbo V6, as well as an AMG C63 and C63S with twin-turbo V8s that put out 469 and 503 hp, respectively.

Performance, even with the base engine, will likely satisfy the vast majority of buyers. Although the C-Class isn't an all-out sports model, acceleration is sprightly, and there's plenty of power for comfortable, quiet highway cruising. Four driving modes — ECO, Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus — allow drivers to tailor response to suit their moods, and the available Mercedes 4Matic all-wheel-drive system provides extra traction when needed.

Fuel economy for the C-Class sedan with the standard four-cylinder engine and rear-wheel drive is EPA rated at a combined 28 mpg (24 city/34 highway). Checking the all-wheel-drive 4Matic option box will lower the rating just a bit to a combined 27 mpg (24 city/31 highway).

C-Class models include the very well-equipped standard C300 Sedan, C300 Coupe or the Cabriolet, any of which can be further enhanced with a large variety of packages and options. And the AMG models are available for those who are looking for more spirited driving. Whatever your preference, let Edmunds help you find the vehicle that best meets your needs.
