For 2016, Mercedes-Benz’s C-Class gains a new trim, the C450 AMG, and drops the C400 from the lineup. The new C450 AMG performance sedan is intended to take on the
Audi S4 and BMW 335i. Later in the year, a C-Class plug-in
hybrid will be introduced.
About Mercedes-Benz C-Class
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.
