2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class


2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E Class are both luxury sedans that deliver on all fronts. Unfortunately, that makes picking one model over the other a real challenge for discerning drivers in Waterloo and Guleph. Use this simple comparison to help you choose, and then explore the massive C-Class inventory and E-Class inventory at Mercedes-Benz Kitchener-Waterloo in Kitchener when you’re ready to learn more.


Both of these models are powered by the same standard engine – a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder that delivers 241 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. The only difference is that the E-Class is paired with a more refined nine-speed automatic transmission, and the C-Class is quicker with a 6.3 second 0-60 mph time. Both models are also available in a performance-boosted AMG® configuration, but the C-Class provides max power when running with a turbocharged 4.0L V8 that generates 503 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque.


The C-Class and the E-Class are similarly sized, both offering spacious seating for five. However, the E-Class is slightly larger overall with 13.1 cubic feet of space in the trunk compared to the 12.6 cubic feet in the C-Class. The E-Class is also available in a wagon configuration that gives you 22.6 cubic feet of dedicated cargo space and 64.2 cubic feet of overall cargo space. If you are less concerned about storage, the C-Class can be had in a sporty convertible configuration.


As similar as these two cars are, they are designed to appeal to two different types of drivers, a fact reflected in the price. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class offers sporty performance and style at a price accessible to more drivers with an MSRP starting at $44,000. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class lineup offers executive-levels of refinement and confidence that will appeal to drivers who expect the best in all things, and its MSRP starts at $61,200
