About Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Now that Mercedes-Benz's CLA handles entry-level duties for the triple-pointed star, the 2015 C-Class grows closer to its upscale stablemates and more competitive against the likes of the Audi A4, BMW 3-series, and Lexus IS. Larger, lighter and posher than its predecessor, the all-new 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class lineup makes a more compelling case for itself than ever in this competitive segment. Though it never was – and might never be – the choice for weekend autocrossers, the C-Class has matured into a big luxury car trapped in a compact-car body. Currently starting at $40,400 and available in C300 and C400 sedan models, the Mercedes C-Class will expand with coupe, wagon and high-performance AMG spinoffs.

"This is the fourth Mercedes I have owned. I previously had a 2012 C250, which I traded in for the all-new 2015 C300 Luxury with 4Matic. The 2015 is much faster than the 2012. The increase to 241 horsepower is a welcome addition. The interior is also much nicer. The interior of the 2015 C300 was rated one of the 10 best car interiors for 2015 by Ward's. The all-new exterior styling looks very nice. Sort of like a mini S-Class. Overall, the new C300 is a very nice automobile."

"Initial experience was terrific. loved the new C 300 2015 model. great appearance and handling. Other than Brake noise when backing up all was well. then cold weather and temperature change caused all the seats,backs etc to leak a chemical and stain everything. Still waiting on resolution but will have to haggle and give up car for a while as the only solution looks like replacing all interior seats and related surfaces. this is now a known problem and no one contacted me. Outcome pending."

"I own a brand new 2015 C300 for about 4 months, but my car was in service department for more than 4 times and for two months of total repair time. Issues include noise and vibration. Reliability of the new C-class is disappointing. The engine noise is much louder than expected. Strange noises come from suspension(especially over bumps and uneven roads) and steering. There is burning smell inside if leaving the car in the sun for a while. Slow acceleration at the beginning, but faster at high speed. Headroom is tight for tall people, and smaller truck than BMW 3 series. The entertainment system is more difficult to operate than BMW's iDrive. Insurance cost is higher than BMW and Audi. Wish the seats could have been softer. Heard in the news that stain on the seats would come out in the winter."
