2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Buyer's Guide

The car is now as compelling as the badge.

Still fresh off a complete rethinking for the 2015 model year, the newest C-Class is as refined, comfortable and solid as you'd expect, but it's also sportier, more youthful and more stylish. 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, a plug-in hybrid option and three fire-breathing Mercedes-AMG models. 

Driving It

From our 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class review: "A lightweight body and nimble suspension make the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class fun to toss into tight curves, although feedback from the steering wheel isn’t as quick as in the Cadillac ATS or BMW 3 Series. There is a discernable solidity to this car, something that helps reinforce the feeling of safety and security when seated behind the wheel."

Build Yours

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class lineup starts at just over $40,000 for the C300 sedan and climbs past $96,000 for a fully loaded C63 AMG S sedan. Build and price your own 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class to unlock its Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price, 5-Year Cost to Own and more.
