2018 Mercedes-Benz C 300 vs 2018 Acura TLX
If you’re looking for satisfaction behind the wheel, you’ll find it at the intersection of performance and luxury. Mercedes-Benz and Acura both know how to play this game well, and with a couple of viable options to choose from, car shoppers might be at a stalemate when it comes to choosing just one. We know this can be a tough decision, and that’s why we’re comparing the two side by side in this matchup between the 2018 Mercedes-Benz C 300 vs 2018 Acura TLX.
It’s not every day that you find a luxury sedan as efficient as the C 300. It greatly surpasses the TLX in terms of horsepower and torque (just look at the table below for a reference) but it also gets better fuel efficiency. How does that happen? The secret lies in the turbocharged 2.0L inline-4 engine. Mercedes-Benz was built on performance and holds true to the spirit of racing, and that’s very prevalent in the C 300.

Mercedes-Benz vehicles are known for displaying a wide range of comfort and convenience, and this sedan is no different. Some of those features not found in the TLX include:
Genuine Wood Trim
