The Mercedes-Benz C-Class ranks among the most important cars in the Mercedes lineup. Most Americans know the C-Class as a compact luxury sedan, and Mercedes also offers it in coupe and convertible body styles. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is known for the timeless appeal of its exterior styling, while its interior blends classic Benz design and elegant furnishings with sophisticated technology. Most buyers select a C-Class sedan with a four-cylinder engine, but the Mercedes-AMG models offer considerably more performance. Likewise, mainstream C-Class models offer balanced ride and handling characteristics (and available all-wheel drive), but AMG-tuned versions often have a raw, athletic character.
