2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review, Pricing, and Specs - Car and Driver

What's New for 2020. For the 2020 model year, the Mercedes-Benz C-class adds blind-spot monitoring as standard equipment on all models. Pricing and Which One to Buy C300 sedan: $42,395 C300 coupe: $46,945 C300 cabriolet: $54,945 We imagine that the sedan body style will be the practical choice for most C-class buyers. It comes standard with appealing exterior features such as rain-sensing windshield wipers, automatic LED headlights, and heated power-adjustable side-view mirrors with auto-dimming and power-folding capability. Engine, Transmission, and Performance With all C300 and C300 4Matic models, a turbocharged 2. 0-liter four-cylinder engine is standard, and it generates 255 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. Rear-wheel drive is standard. In our testing of a rear-drive coupe, it motivated the C300 from zero to 60 mph in 5. 6 seconds. The powerplant puts the C-class sedan on par with the Alfa Romeo Giulia 2. 0T in quickness and a tad behind the Audi A4. The transmission complements the engine nicely, providing intuitive shifts. Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG The most fuel-efficient choice in the C-class lineup is the rear-drive C300 sedan, and the EPA estimates its fuel economy at 24/35 mpg city/highway.
