Power Beyond Measure. Safety Without Limits.

Obviously there’s a huge difference in horsepower. We didn’t even mention the torque, which comes in at 273 lb-ft. against 200 lb-ft. in favor of the C 300. No, those numbers will speak for themselves. We’d like you to pay special attention to some of the safety features offered by Mercedes-Benz. You’d better believe that with a safety reputation like the one Mercedes-Benz has, they’re going to equip the C-Class models accordingly. That can be seen in the abundance of safety features such as COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS which uses radar to monitor traffic ahead and brake for you if you’re too slow, or the ATTENTION ASSIST® which alerts you audibly and visually when it senses you’re getting drowsy. Add in the Intelligent Drive suite of active safety features and it’s easy to see how Mercedes-Benz is upholding their safety standards in the 2017 C-Class.
