KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Joe Tralongo, Contributing Editor - Updated Date: 7/25/2016

With the addition of the new Mercedes-AMG C43 to the C-Class lineup of sedan, coupe and convertible models, 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class family now offers serious performance as well as serious luxury. Mercedes’ 2017 C-Class leaves nothing to be desired, whether you want the surprisingly strong 4-cylinder in the C300 to the wonderfully balanced C43, you get power, handling and superb interior craftsmanship into a vehicle packed with cutting-edge technology and safety features. More aggressive-looking than the BMW 3 and 4 Series’ cars, the C-Class has the goods to take on the Cadillac ATS and Lexus IS and in AMG form, these same cars’ M, V and F-Sport trims. Although the C-Class is more expensive than some rivals, many feel the Mercedes-Benz name is worth the added premium.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you’re looking for a luxury car that not only impresses with its badging, but with its engineering excellence, performance capabilities and outstanding luxury amenities, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan, coupe or cabriolet makes an excellent choice. Environmentally sensitive drivers will love the 2017 C350e plug-in hybrid.

You May Not Like This Car If...

While the AMG models are certainly performance champs, the base C300 doesn’t quite have the same athletic feel as the entry-level cars from Cadillac, BMW and Audi. Pedigree aside, you can find similar features and performance in a larger and less expensive Hyundai Genesis or Chrysler 300.

What's New for 2017

For 2017, Mercedes-Benz’s C-Class Coupe and Cabriolet return riding atop the sedan’s recently revised chassis and interior. Three new AMG models are added: Mercedes-AMG AMG C43, AMG C63 and AMG C63 S. 

Driving It Driving Impressions

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. A step up to the AMG cars brings a completely different feel, backed by either a 362-horsepower twin-turbocharged V6 in the new Mercedes-AMG C43, or a 503-horsepower turbocharged V8 in the C63. On the track, our AMG C63 S exhibited impressive poise. Drifting into corners required little effort, and when too much throttle caused the rear wheels to break loose, it was easy to stay on course until the tires hooked up again. Of course, the AMG Race-mode setting turns up the C-Class’s electronic settings to 11, but even in normal driving conditions, we found the AMG C63 S surprisingly civilized. 

Favorite Features

The term “like floating on air” turns literal in the Mercedes-Benz 2017 C-Class cars. The available Airmatic suspension softens the ride when necessary and makes life with the run-flat tires a bit less harsh. Owners can select from four settings: Comfort, ECO, Sport and Sport +.

The 2017 C-Class from Mercedes-Benz offers a Driver Assist Package consisting of active lane-keeping assist and blind-spot detection. Employing the car’s adaptive cruise control, this system helps keep the C-Class from drifting out of its lane should the driver become inattentive or distracted.
