The 2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan

The 2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is the perfect first luxury car for someone looking to break into the segment. While not Mercedes’ most expensive option, it still packs a lot of elegance into its much more affordable package.

You can drive the all-new 2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class as a sedan only; the C-Class coupe is sitting out the 2016 model year as MB prepares for updates to the all-new 2017 C-Class Coupe. The C-Class Sedan is available in five trim levels: C300, C300 4MATIC, C450 AMG, AMG C63, and AMG C63 S.

2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Exterior

Sleek. Subtle. Elegant. These are the very words that Mercedes uses to describe the design of the C-Class, and while they are seemingly tailored toward a marketing message to make you want to buy a car, they are incredibly accurate. The exterior of the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is sleek, is subtly elegant. Starting from the signature star grille at the front all the way back to its sculpted taillamps, the C-Class is a work of art, both as a sedan and a coupe. LEDs and Bi-Xenon lamps provide for a purely luxurious lighting experience, and sculpted lines give the C-Class its athletic stance.
