Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

There have been some changes to standard and optional equipment across the C-Class lineup, and Mercedes has simplified some options packages and stand-alone options. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now available in the C-Class, too. A plug-in hybrid, the C350e, is essentially new, though it technically debuted very late in the 2017 model year.

PROS
Interior is impeccably crafted
Many available cutting-edge features
Exterior styling turns heads everywhere
Multiple high-horsepower powertrains available

CONS
Stiff standard suspension
Clumsy touchpad infotainment interface

In addition to a power boost to 385 horsepower, the C43 sees styling and content changes for 2019. A new grille, new wheel designs, and revised front and rear bumpers bring the C43's design in line with other AMG models. Inside, a digital gauge cluster becomes an option and a new sport steering wheel is standard. New wood and metal interior trimmings as well as optional AMG Performance seats with heat and ventilation are now offered.

Pros
Gorgeous cabin,
stunningly quick,
choice of three body styles.

Cons
Rocky ride,
adding options quickly inflates the price.

A great-looking family
Powertrains range from great to GREAT
Best C-Class handling ever

Automatic-only
