2019 Mercedes-Benz C 300 vs 2019 Kia Stinger

Mercedes-Benz and Kia might seem like they’re on two totally separate sides of the spectrum, but this is a fair comparison given the way the Kia Stinger is branded. Kia has quietly made efforts to slip into the luxury automotive segment, so how do they do against the big dogs? Take a look here as we compare the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C 300 vs 2019 Kia Stinger!

The C-Class has been a popular option for years. In fact, it has retained the number one spot in luxury car sales numerous times, so that tells you just how popular it is. Combining excellent performance with unmatched interior craftsmanship, the C 300 is a tough competitor against most others. See how the heralded C 300 compares against the dark horse in the Stinger as we match the two up head-to-head below!

Advantages of Driving a C 300

As you’ll notice from the table above, the C 300 edges out the Stinger when it comes to performance. The extra transmission speed will provide more seamless gear transitions and better top-end fuel efficiency. Speaking of fuel efficiency, the C 300 is the winner here despite offering the same horsepower and more torque.

The C 300 isn’t just about performance. Inside you’ll find an aesthetic design that is unique to Mercedes-Benz. Genuine wood trim lines the doors and dashboard while the available Nappa leather seating is both comfortable and easy to clean. Mercedes-Benz added a bunch of updates to the C 300 for 2019 as well, making it even better than before with an available 10.25-inch high-resolution center display with a 12.3 inch digital instrument cluster. With other perks like the 64-color ambient lighting system and a new-generation steering wheel with Touch Control Buttons, the C 300 is certainly a catch.
