The C300 adds nothing more than an all-wheel-drive system that blunts the performance slightly, taking a tenth of a second longer to reach 60 mph with the 255 hp on hand. It’s worth investing in if you live in a cold-weather state, but everywhere else, the standard C300 should suffice. The all-wheel-drive system has a negative effect on fuel consumption, but only marginally so. The specification is otherwise identical between the two models.
