2018 Mercedes-Benz C300 Sedan vs. 2018 Lexus IS 350 RWD

2018 Mercedes-Benz C 300 Sedan vs. 2018 Lexus IS 350 RWD

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 2018 Mercedes-Benz C 300 Sedan, you’ll have trouble justifying the luxury status of the 2018 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 Mercedes-Benz C 300 vs. Lexus IS 350 RWD below!

Inspired Performance

The 2018 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 seem truly dismal 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!

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.

Convenience 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. One example is the power-folding side mirrors on the C 300; they can be folded at the touch of a button, making it easier to park in tight spaces and then return to your previously chosen setting when you’re ready to drive again. Power side mirrors with memory are standard on every C 300, but you’ll have to pay more if you want them on the Lexus 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:

  • When you need to pass on the highway, Crosswind Assist can detect the effects of strong side winds on your handling and then adjust driving dynamics accordingly.
  • When you need to conduct low-speed maneuvers, the available Surround View System creates a virtual 360-degree display to make things easy.

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