The 2019 Mercedes-Benz E 300 and 2019 Mercedes-Benz C 300 are star models in the auto industry. One offers a taste of the luxury driving experience at a cost-effective rate, while the other piles on the technology features for roughly $12,000 more. So, how do you choose, especially when critics respond positively in both E 300 reviews and C 300 reviews? We put together the following Mercedes-Benz E 300 vs. C 300 comparison to help San Jose and Milpitas drivers decide!

E-Class vs. C-Class: Price

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz C 300 Sedan starts at $41,400*. At this price, the new C 300 is an entry-level model, but it delivers its fair share of power and technology features. In addition, it offers great city/highway mpg ratings and plenty of trunk space for a compact car. Newark and Milpitas drivers in search of an unabashedly luxurious vehicle will be better served by the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E 300 Sedan, starting at $53,500*. It’s not as efficient as the C-Class, but it’s much techier and luxury-focused.

  • Engine Options: While both models feature a 2.0 L inline-4 turbo engine, the E 300 generates 241 hp, and the C 300 generates a stronger 255 hp. 
  • MPG Ratings: Due to its smaller size, the C 300 Sedan is more fuel-efficient than the midsize E 300, affording you fewer fuel-ups during your Bay Area commute. It earns 23 mpg city/34 mpg highway vs. the E 300 Sedan, which achieves up to 21 mpg city/30 mpg highway.
  • Notable Features: ECO-START® technology, a 9-speed automatic, four-wheel multi-link suspension, and DYNAMIC SELECT® come standard on both models. The E 300 has the distinction of ESP® Dynamic Cornering Assist, which is a more advanced version of the Torque Vectoring Brake found on the C 300.
