What You Will Like

The C-Class has traditionally been Mercedes-Benz' entry-level car. However with the arrival of the CLA, the C-Class is no longer the German automaker's least expensive model. Mercedes-Benz has packed the 2015 C-Class full of upscale technology, determined to make the car feel anything but entry level. Despite this move upmarket, pricing on the C-Class remains competitive with other European small sedans such as the BMW 3-series. The 2015 C-Class starts at around $40,000.

What's New For 2015

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class has been totally redesigned for 2015. The new C-Class is sharply styled and looks very similar to its larger, more expensive sibling, the S-Class. The C-Class also inherits much of that vehicle's technology, helping to make it both safer and more comfortable than before. This year's redesign also benefits from two brand new engines for the C-Class.


  • Basic Warranty: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain Warranty: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles
  • Roadside Assistance: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Loading Comparison...


Among luxury brands, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class midsize sedan is a heat-seeking missile from Stuttgart targeted at the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4.

Completely redesigned for the 2015 model year, the swoopy C-Class stands out in terms of design language and technology, and it is just sporty enough to find buyers among brand-and-style conscious women and upwardly mobile customers who want to park a brand-new three-pointed star car that can carry five people comfortably in their driveways for less than $40,000.

Prodigious power is not the priority here: the C-Class doesn’t belong in the sports car category by a long shot. But its fluid design, which owes a big-time debt to the larger, far more expensive S-Class, and its bulletproof on-road stability and wealth of technology lends it a personality all its own.

The new C-Class sedan is the brand’s biggest-selling offering and the first Mercedes-Benz based on a newly developed aluminum/steel platform, which will be employed in a variety of future vehicles.

The 2015 C-Class offers buyers the choice of two power plants and rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

The C300 uses a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that outputs 241 horsepower and 273 foot-pounds of torque. The C300 is rear-wheel drive. The C300 4MATIC is all-wheel drive.

The higher-performance C400 4MATIC has a 3-liter bi-turbo V6 good for 329 horsepower and 354 foot-pounds of torque.

All C-Class models use a version of the company’s tried and true 7-speed automatic transmission; no manual transmissions are available for the U.S.

While the car is nicely equipped out of the factory box, there are scads of options and accessories: packages to enhance comfort, safety tech, navigation and upgraded sound offerings. We would pass on many to keep the price down, but we liked the available air suspension that fits to both axles. This technology makes for electronically controlled damper adjustment that compensates for heavy car loads and imperfect road surfaces. We found it quickened turn-in and improved steering feel in the Sport and Sport Plus modes.

Safety elements are front and center in the 2015 C-Class.

The C-Class has grown in size for 2015, which is welcome news for rear-seat passengers who were slightly cramped in the older model. The 2015 C-Class wheelbase is stretched three inches, and the overall length adds 3.7 inches. Width is up 1.6 inches.

The midsize luxury sedan faces established competition from the Audi A4 sedan (starting MSRP $41,475) and A5 coupe ($44,575), as well as the BMW 3 Series ($37,195) and Cadillac ATS sedan ($37,145). There’s the Lexus IS 250 sedan ($37,475), as well.

Fuel efficiency for the all-wheel-drive C400 4MATIC is an EPA-estimated 22/29/24 mpg City/Highway/Combined. The 2015 C300 4MATIC is EPA-rated at 24/31/27 mpg. Both require Premium gasoline.

Based on our auditions, BMW has nothing to worry about with its all-wheel-drive 3 Series when it comes to driving dynamics. And, while stunning in its own right, the C-Class does not have the drop-dead gorgeous lines of the Audi A5 coupe.

Model Lineup

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan offers a choice of rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive and two engine choices: The 2015 Mercedes-Benz C300 comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 that makes 241 horsepower, and the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C400 gets a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 rated at 329 horsepower. All 2015 C-Class models use a 7-speed automatic transmission.

The C300 ($38,400) is rear-wheel drive, while the C300 4MATIC ($40,400) is all-wheel drive. The C400 4MATIC ($48,590) only comes with all-wheel drive. (All prices are MSRP and do not include a $925 destination charge.)

Standard equipment across all 2015 C-Class models includes MB-Tex (vinyl) upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, power seats in front, power folding mirrors, the 7-inch color tablet display, keyless start, automatic headlamps, power tilt and telescoping leather steering wheel.

The optional C300 premium package ($2,700) adds LED headlights, Sirius XM radio, Burmester sound system, heated front seats and Keyless-Go. The C300 Luxury package ($650) adds interior trim and a comfort suspension. The lighting package ($800) includes LED headlamps and adaptive high beam assist.

The optional COMAND navigation system ($2,690) includes 8.4-inch high-resolution screen, 10-gigabyte music drive and other features. An optional leather package ($2,300) includes leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, ambient lighting and a power passenger seat. Other options include Airmatic air suspension ($1,190). Not to be confused with that is the Air Balance package ($350), which pumps a flowery perfume fragrance into the cabin. The Driver Assistance package ($2,800) bundles blind spot and lane-keeping sensors, steering assist, and Distronic Plus, a form of cruise control that employs advanced radar sensors to scan ahead for stopped or slowing traffic.

Safety features on all C-Class models include Attention Assist driver drowsiness monitor, Pre-Safe and Collision Prevention Assist Plus technologies, a full suite of airbags, and anti-theft alarm. Anti-lock brakes are standard. The available 4MATIC all-wheel drive can enhance handling stability in slippery conditions.




We had two days to audition the four-wheel drive versions in and around Seattle, and found that the design, especially in the darker colors, stands out spectacularly, whether the backdrop is snow-covered Mount Rainier or the bare steel piping of a trash treatment plant. While there are cues from the smaller CLA-Class and larger S-Class in the body treatment, the tension in the creases, along with the short overhangs and sleek, long hood, create a C-Class that stands on its own, style-wise.

The view of the new C-Class is most pleasing from head-on, encompassing teardrop-shaped headlamps and the two-bar chrome grill enclosing the obligatory three-pointed star (buyers can also opt for the classic MB-look slat grill with the star placed atop the hood). The fins on the radiator grill can be closed to optimize aerodynamics. A handsome chrome strip stretches the width of the car under the bumper; the C-Class has a fairly low ground clearance; so don't expect to go off-roading with this one.

Large wheels emphasize the rear end and give the car a sense of forward thrust. The rear lamp and brake light is LED technology, while cars equipped with the Premium Package include full LED head and taillights.


The passenger compartment is set well back from the windscreen, and entry and exit to the front seats is non-dramatic. The rear door openings aren't limousine-like, but the space back there is airy and comfortable one you're inside. Legroom is more than 35 inches in the rear, while headroom is 37 inches. Three adults can fit back there in reasonable comfort.

Cabin materials are excellent. However, we think the multi-media display that sits atop the dash is tacky. Elements of the interior design mirror those of the S-class interior, such as the new center-console design, decorative touches on the dash and door panels. One interesting touch: the controls for the front seat heaters (on models so equipped) are on the right and left door panels, rather than grouped with the other heating/AC controls in the center.

The large, one-piece center console creates an elegant line from the round air-vents to the center armrest, There's wood decorating the dash, which is covered with MB-TEX, the company's term for vinyl, and the leather seats in the Premium package are skewed toward comfort rather than a bolstered feel.

Standard equipment on the C-Class is a touchpad, not to be confused with the 7-inch display screen. Essentially, the mouse-like controller, sitting on the center console, replicates most of the functions of the control dial, which is located directly in front of the pad. The pad allows one to navigate through the on-screen menus by moving a finger up and down, left and right, or swiping in various directions. Buttons on the lower part of the pad direct the system back, and allow instant access to media selections. Mercedes says the pad idea will find its way into other new models as well. We found the pad responsive, but it takes some getting used to, and we often defaulted to the more familiar round dial to adjust and control inputs.

Driving Impressions

Our four-S code applies to most Mercedes-Benz models in the luxury category: safe, stable, sexy sheet metal. The 2015 C-Class sedans tick all those boxes.

A fifth S, for speed, enters the equation in the V6-powered C400 4MATIC model. The bump in power and torque over the base C300 arrives as soon as you step on the throttle. Lagless and boisterous, the boost comes on strong in the C400. On a straight section of two-lane blacktop with no oncoming traffic, and stuck behind four Sunday drivers, we goosed the motor and overtook the quartet without any drama.

Both the C300 and C400 showed admirable dexterity on gentle curves and great passing power. Tighter curves and bends were more of a challenge, as the C-Class models have a propensity to lean. Lack of steering feel, something of a Mercedes-Benz trademark, is a gremlin here as well. It's not that the C-Class steering is numb, but it's not particularly talkative to the driver.

The Airmatic air suspension, standard fit on the C400, keeps the car planted at speed but unnerves it in more demanding corners. Both cars, we found, have a slight tendency to dive on takeoff, surprising in view of all the work put into the suspension's geometry and technology. On a rough stretch on I-90 pavement, there was noticeable jiggle up front.

Under ideal conditions (in the dry weather we had) , the C tracked like a locomotive. Wind and tire noise were sufficiently calmed as well by the Benzes' aerodynamics.

Our C400 had paddle shifters, but the action of the 7-speed is responsive enough so that manual shifting is fun at first, but the novelty wears off. Manual transmissions have been exiled by Mercedes in all but one of their cars for 2015 (the SLK 250 roadster), and their customers don't seem to mind.

The brakes in the C300 were comfortably assured under dry conditions; the C400's grippers use four-piston fixed calipers rather than the single-piston on the lesser model, and brought the speeds down without any kvetching. The C300 is fitted with 17-inch all-season tires, the C400 has 18-inch wheels.

The suspension geometry was a huge part of the car's development. For those of you enamored with initials, Mercedes has its own code: MRA. It stands for Modular Rear-Drive Architecture, makes extensive use of aluminum in the underbody, and allows for a weight savings of about 200 pounds compared to the previous C, the company says. In the front, a four-link setup decouples the suspension from the spring strut, resulting in more comfort for passengers,, improved ride tuning and slightly more agility for the driver. We found some glitches with the ride, as noted above. The C-Class is not a sports car, even though it may look like one.

Fuel efficiency for the all-wheel-drive C400 4MATIC is an EPA-estimated 22/29/24 mpg City/Highway/Combined. The 2015 C300 4MATIC is EPA-rated at 24/31/27 mpg. All C-Class models require Premium gasoline.


The new Mercedes-Benz C-Class offers brand image, high technology, and outstanding fit and finish. The cabin is finished in quality materials and is a nice alternative to BMW's drab interiors. Unlike the Audis, the Mercedes-Benz is built on a platform using sporty rear-wheel drive, while offering all-wheel drive.

Stephen Williams filed this report after test drives of the C300 and C400 near Seattle.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
