Type: Mid Sized Luxury / Sports Sedan
Drive: Rear and optional All Wheel Drive
The C-Class Mercedes, aka, the "Baby Benz" has been the entry level sedan for Mercedes since the mid-1990's. Still every bit a Mercedes, one test drive will make you forget the previous sentence. The C-Class is packed with all the prestige, power, performance, luxury, safety, and solid road manners of its bigger brothers. An all wheel drive option is offered, but many have found that Mercedes superior traction and stability control enables the rear drive cars to perform adequately in winter driving situations. Many option packages are offered on the C-Class, including base, sport, and a super-tuned AMG model, offering either a 2.5 liter or a 3.0 liter V-6 engine.
When compared to its competition from BMW, Audi, Lexus, and others, a pre-owned C-Class is often a great bargain, even when compared to many new cars at a similar price-level.
