For 2023, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class is presented in two models, though there are three sub-trims within each. The C 300 is the base model, while the C 300 4Matic adds all-wheel drive at a nominal price. A turbocharged four-cylinder engine powers the entire range, producing 255 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque.
The standard specifications include a 12.3-inch digital driver display and an 11.9-inch touchscreen for the infotainment. Keyless entry and start are included, along with an array of driver-assistance tech like blind-spot assist, attention assist, and Pre-safe with forward collision avoidance. The front seats are power-operated with memory settings and heating. Moving up the sub-trim levels sees the addition of enhanced ambient lighting, additional safety systems like a surround-view camera, and an upgraded Burmester sound system.
A panorama roof is available, and seating ventilation and a heated steering wheel are also offered. The AMG Line package adds a number of aesthetic options that make the sedan look and feel sportier.
As well-equipped as it is, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class's specs can be upgraded via the available packages and options. The most comprehensive is AMG Line w/Night Package, which comprises AMG 5-spoke wheels, AMG body styling, gloss-black exterior accents, a chrome star-pattern grille, sports brakes, a sport suspension, and sport steering. All of this adds $3,050 to the price. You can spend $1,000 to replace the sunroof with a panorama roof, and $1,100 to replace the standard headlights with LED digital headlights. Adding ventilation to the front seats costs $450, while a heated steering wheel will cost you $250, and MB navigation will add $650. A variety of spoilers can be had for $350, and rear side-impact airbags can be had for $700, while standalone adaptive cruise control is priced at $600, but isn't available on all trims
