The Mercedes-Benz C-Class for 2016 has come into its own, a worthy adversary to cars like the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4. Fresh from a complete redesign last year, the 2016 car is larger, wider, lighter and more posh than previous-generation C-Class sedans. The C-Class offers new levels of luxury on the inside and ever greater performance under the skin, where a new C450 AMG model adds another option to the multifaceted C-Class lineup. And, while we're pretty sure the C-Class won't excite BMW autocrossers, it should appeal to those seeking big luxury-car trappings in a body not much bigger than a midsize sedan. Although the C-Class coupe was a carryover from last year, the new coupe will debut as 2017 model.
