2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class for Sale
The 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class began life as the smallest Mercedes (the "Baby Benz"), but it has now grown to near midsize proportions, offering a level of roominess and comfort that rivals that you'll find in many larger cars. With the CLA-Class taking over as the compact Mercedes, the C-Class models are not the lowest-level Mercedes 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.
Sedan, coupe and convertible, 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 back seat 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 nine-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. Different driving modes allow drivers to tailor responses to suit their moods, and the available Mercedes 4Matic all-wheel-drive system provides extra traction when needed.
C-Class models include the very well-equipped standard C300 sedan, C300 coupe or the Cabriolet, and the plug-in hybrid C350e, any of which can be further enhanced with a large variety of packages and options. The AMG C43 and C63 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.
