Advantages of Driving the 2019 C 300

These two names might both make you think of pristine luxury and performance, but only one has the tradition of excellence that rides behind the three-pronged star. The C 300 has plenty of features no found in its German counterpart, such as the DISTRONIC PLUS® adaptive cruise control feature. This feature works by monitoring the speed of the vehicle in front of you and automatically adjusting your speed accordingly so you won’t have to turn off the cruise control feature just because the driver in front of you isn’t using theirs. The C 300 also comes with an optional rear electronic parking aid, another feature unavailable in the A4. This feature comes in handy by acting as a second set of eyes for you so you’ll have an easier time parking. No one said you have to go it alone, and Mercedes-Benz is ensuring you have all the essentials covered when you take your C 300 out for a spin.
