The car drove great , handled superbly and accelerated great. I’m a big guy. 6’-2” 235 and the driver seat was just a little tight for me. Bar that I would have purchased.

Handling Ranked 2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 300 Luxury 4MATIC better.
"They are very close. I liked the way it went into corners and how the steering and breaking worked in performance mode. It’s a little heavier but still very agile"
Family Car Ranked 2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 300 Luxury 4MATIC better.
"They’re both similar but the C300 , in my opinion has more interior room. I’m basically by myself the majority of the time but when I go out w my family (adult children) we all fit well"
