Aggressive front fascia, terrific engineering as well as fit and finish, capable 4Matic/suspension/tire package; supple interior leather befitting a more expensive car, other materials like rubberized dash feel good; nav system easy to use, panorama sunroof is airy; silky 7-speed automatic.
228 horses from 3.0L V6 isn’t enough, neither is 20 mpg combined.
The C300 is a luxury car at an entry-level Mercedes-Benz price (just $33,600 for Sport). It lacks little and offers much, though at this price point, I’d cough up another $6K and buy the 268-hp C350. Still, the C300 will be comfortable, look good and should work well 200,000 miles down the road, which certainly adds to its appeal.
