Changes for the 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class include the addition of 18-inch wheels to the C350 and a standard split-folding rear seat on all models. The sport-oriented C63 AMG receives a new Edition 507 package that bumps output to 507 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque.
New for 2013 is the C300 4Matic's 3.5-liter direct-injection V6 that bumps output to 248 horsepower. A fuel-saving ECO start/stop feature is added to the C350 and C300 4Matic, while Distronic Plus becomes a stand-alone option. Mbrace2 internet and app connectivity is made standard on all trims.
The 2010 C-Class gains an individual tire pressure monitoring system, leather-wrapped steering wheel and new aerodynamic outside mirrors; the C300 Sport features new 17-inch wheels. New options include Keyless Go, four-way power lumbar support, tilt-down side mirror and a Dynamic Handling Package (not available on cars with 4MATIC).
The 2009 C-Class gains front pelvic airbags, bringing its total number of supplemental restraints to eight. The C300 gets a comfort suspension, while a 10-way driver's memory seat and power adjustable steering wheel are made standard on the C350. New options include a 40 gigabyte hard drive with six gigabytes of music storage and a Zagat restaurant guide.
While the favorite ride of the rich and famous is undoubtedly a well-appointed S-Class, Mercedes-Benz builds a smaller luxury ride that is well within reach of most upper-middle-class Americans. Offered in coupe and sedan form, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is more than just an entry ticket into an exclusive car club, it is a safe, reliable and luxurious mode of transportation respected for excellence. Be it the classy coupe, the sub-$40,000 4-cylinder turbo C250 or the pricey yet thrilling V8 powered C63 AMG, there is a C-Class to fit most tastes and budgets. While not as performance tuned as rivals from Cadillac and BMW, the C-Class offers a more compliant ride preferred by many luxury buyers.

"I've owned this M-Benz C-300 for going on 5 years now and drive a lot. 156,000 miles to be exact. Lot's of Highway and am still getting 32 MPG. Still working on the Original Factory Brakes also. They simply won't wear out. Only problem was at 150K I had a leak around my oil cooler. I didn't have to but I chose to have it replaced. Service is somewhat expensive but if you're going to own a Mercedes, suck it up. Interior is plush, comfortable, easy to clean and wears like Iron!! Survives grandkids and dogs. Engine is spunky and the car handles like a dream going throught he NC mountains. Really fun to drive. I love it and will likely hang on to it just to see how many miles I can get out of it."

"Leased this as a new car and then purchased after the lease. It kept its value way better than expected and I have had zero issues with it mechanically. I really see no reason to get a newer model as this one has nearly everything I need. Performance is good, look is great, and it is a solid car. The only negatives would be the cost of maintenance and the premium gas, but I was aware of that when I got it. Would definitely recommend."

"I just got this car a few weeks ago. It was certified used wit 24k miles on it. The car drives like you would expect a MB to drive; smooth with great control. Because of the all wheel drive 4matic option you cant even feel when the car shifts! its like driving on a flying carpet its so smooth. The power is decent with 228HP and a sport mode option that allows you to drive at hire rpm. In the snow this car is very safe. I decided to drift the car in the snow (in a safe place where there are NO other cars and NO people) and the technology of the 4matic option and the ESP braking system is AMAZING!!! the car would not let me drift! The technology is so good that it braking system adjusts braking pressure to the tire that is out of control and corrects the speed of the other tires to put the car back in my control. Its so funny how you can feel a car the has a BRAIN! It basically catches itself. I was blown away. Even driving it on the snowy road was amazing, and going up a snowy hill was no problem! I am very pleased with my purchase and definitely got my moneys worth... the only thing to see now is how much maintenance will cost when it is due :( and averaging 20MPG in Washington DC traffic how much I will pay for a month on gas :( This car is definitely a bang for your buck if you're looking for comfort, style, and performance!"
