The car is as compelling as the badge.

The C-Class is as refined, comfortable and solid as you'd expect, but this generation is also the sportiest, most youthful and most stylish to date. Beneath the sculpted sheetmetal lies a rich and contemporary interior, and on the road the Mercedes-Benz C-Class is alternately relaxed and responsive according to the situation. There's also plenty of variety in the lineup, including coupe and convertible variants -- which will be refreshed for 2019 -- a plug-in hybrid option and three fire-breathing Mercedes-AMG models. For 2018, all C-Class models except the hybrid receive a 9-speed automatic transmission. The hybrid continues to use a 7-speed automatic. 

Driving It

From our 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class review: "While comfort and quiet are top of mind, the C-Class is easy to hustle. In fact, the 2018 C-Class is beguilingly quick, and its turbocharged 4-cylinder feels more powerful than its stated 241 horsepower. With the new 9-speed transmission, the C 300 now runs to 60 mph in 5.8 seconds, 2/10ths of a second quicker than last year."
