Once you begin to explore all the luxury sedan options on the market, you’ll quickly notice that a higher price doesn’t always mean higher quality. For example, when you look at the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C 300 Sedan, you’ll have trouble justifying the luxury status of the 2019 Lexus IS 350 RWD. With more equipment and available features, the new C-Class is the clear winner — and you can get it for much less. Compare the base-level 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. Lexus IS Sedan below!

C 300 vs. IS 350: Performance

The 2019 C 300 Sedan conceals both brains and brawn beneath the hood. Its 2.0L I4 DOHC engine is turbocharged, so it can produce 241 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque — all while using less fuel than the ultra-thirsty Lexus IS 350. Earning just 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, the Lexus will cost you more during your Irvine and Costa Mesa travels after enjoying up to 24 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway behind the wheel of the more efficient Mercedes-Benz. Simply put, you’ll spend more time savoring the thrilling ride and less time standing at the pump!

C 300 vs. IS 350: Cabin Comfort

The elegant design of the C 300 Sedan is evident everywhere you look and touch. Intuitive seat-shaped controls allow for 14-way power adjustment of the driver seat, including lumbar support. Store up to three positions, including positions for the side mirrors and power steering column, so your C 300 is ready when you are. Power front memory seats are standard on every C 300; if you want powered front seats with a memory function with the IS 350, you’ll have to add them as optional features to the already higher MSRP.

C 300 vs. IS 350: High-End Features

True luxury exists in the details, and the Mercedes-Benz C 300 has many standard and available features that are either optional equipment or unavailable on the Lexus IS 350. Examples include:

  • Power-folding side mirrors for easy parking in tight Orange County spaces
  • Genuine wood trim which gives an added sense of luxury to your interior
  • 12.6 cubic feet cargo capacity allows additional storage for your Laguna Beach trips or San Jose errands.

C 300 vs. IS 350: Safety & Security

The new C 300 also shines when it comes to safety. Features great and small work together to ensure you and your passengers safely arrive in Huntington Beach or Irvine:

  • Crosswind Assist can detect the effects of strong side winds on your handling and adjust driving dynamics accordingly.
  • ATTENTION ASSIST® learns your driving habits and then provides you with an alert if you appear to be drowsy. 

Unfortunately, you won’t encounter these features with the Lexus IS 350!
