Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Price $40,850 – $82,900
Fuel consumption 7.5 – 17.9 L/100km
The Car Guide rating 77%(view ratings)
The fourth incarnation of the C-Class is distancing itself from its eternal rival, the BMW 3 Series. Instead, it’s focussing on the qualities that Mercedes-Benz is known for: comfort and luxury. Longer and wider than its predecessor, the new version’s lines are reminiscent of its big sister, the S-Class. Moreover, it has a 2.1L four-cylinder diesel engine, which means autonomy should be excellent.
