2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
When you’re shopping for a luxury sedan or coupe, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class lineups are the place to look. Both are winners among Mercedes-Benz vehicle options, with matching engines, competitive safety ratings, and more. Your decision, of course, largely depends on your driving needs. Allow Mercedes-Benz of Burlington to guide you in your choice.
Both the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E 300 and the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C 300 sedans – introductory models in their respective lineups – come powered by the same engine with identical output. This machine is a 2.0L inline-4 that generates a capable and confident 241 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. One key difference, though, is that the 2017 E 300 delivers this power via a nine-speed automatic transmission, and the 2017 C 300 has a seven-speed automatic transmission. Another noteworthy model when it comes to performance is the 2017 Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, which boasts a biturbo V6 engine generating 362 hp.
Comfort, Convenience, and Technology
Regardless of whether you prioritize comfort, convenience, or technology, you’ll be well served by the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
