Which Sedan is Better?

There’s no simple answer to this question. The base trims for both the C-Class and E-Class have the same power and torque output, but inside there are a few differences. For one, the E-Class has dual 12.3-inch touchscreens which display high resolution with a high pixel count and allow drivers and passengers to easily see their entertainment, navigation, and other comfort and convenience features. The C 300 doesn’t offer this, but it still matches many of the other features in the E 300. Those features include:

  • Genuine wood trim
  • Leather seating
  • Sunroof
  • Front power memory seats
  • Front power lumbar
  • Heated/cooled front seats
  • Navigational aid
  • Variable assisted steering
  • Rain sensor wipers
