Overview

The smallest sedan in the lineup is only two years old-allowing Mercedes to make only minor equipment package changes, and redesign the exterior mirrors, for 2010.

  • New 17-inch alloy wheels on C300 Sport
  • All models receive premium leather steering wheel
  • Enhanced tire-pressure-monitoring system is now standard
  • Exterior mirrors are now smaller
  • New optional equipment includes Keyless Go, rearview camera, tilting parking mirror, 4-way power lumbar and universal media interface
  • New optional Dynamic Handling package for C300 and C350 models includes active damping suspension, speed-sensitive steering, 18-inch alloy wheels and steering wheel-mounted paddles

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class, in production since 1993, is the automaker's entry-level model for the US market. It's classed as an "executive car": a compact luxury vehicle. Now in its third generation, the C-Class is largely unchanged for 2010, but it adds a Dynamic Handling package and a few other options. The C-Class offers the consumer many choices in terms of power, styling, and levels of luxury.

The 2010 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is offered in four trim levels. The C300 Sport and C300 Luxury trims both feature 17-inch wheels, automatic headlights, sunroof, Bluetooth connectivity, 8-speaker sound system, cruise control, and dual-zone automatic climate control. The Sport and Luxury trims differ as to exterior and interior styling, but both offer a choice of rear- or all-wheel drive. The C300 Sport employs a 6-speed manual transmission and firmer suspension, while the C300 Luxury features a 7-speed automatic transmission. Many option packages are available on either the Sport or Luxury model.

The C350 Sport includes heated front seats, satellite radio, and more power functions, and adds a larger engine. The C63 AMG is the high-performance trim, and features a V-8 engine along with 18-inch wheels, sport seats, and a firm suspension, plus option packages not available on the other trims. Both the C350 Sport and the C63 AMG employ rear-wheel drive.

The C300 trims feature a 228-horsepower, 3.0-liter V-6 engine that delivers 18 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway with rear-wheel drive, according to the EPA. The C350 features a 268-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine, and the C63 AMG's engine is a 451-horsepower 6.2-liter V-8 with a 7-speed automatic transmission. The C63 AMG delivers 12 mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway.

Standard safety features on all 2010 Mercedes-Benz C-Class models include adaptive anti-lock disc brakes with brake assist, hill-start assist, traction control, and stability control. Active front head restraints, front side air bags, side curtain air bags, and pelvic air bags are also standard.

Starting MSRPs for the Mercedes-Benz C-Class ranged from $33,600 to $57,350.
