2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Compare the 2018 E-Class and 2018 C-Class to competitors, and it’s easy to see why Orange County drivers continue to choose these two luxury classes. But which one is right for your lifestyle? Fletcher Jones Motorcars Newport Beach has done the homework for you! Below, you’ll find a Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. C-Class comparison that highlights the strengths of these two extraordinary luxury lines!

If you’re shopping around Irvine and Laguna Beach for a small luxury sedan, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class is always a safe bet. For a reasonable price-tag, you’ll get a peppy engine and plenty of luxuries. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is more expensive but offers technologies you won’t find elsewhere—except for maybe the flagship S-Class. Here’s a quick breakdown of their price ranges:

  • 2018 Mercedes-Benz C 300: Starting MSRP of $40,250
  • 2018 Mercedes-AMG® C 63 S: Starting MSRP of $73,700
  • 2018 Mercedes-Benz E 300: Starting MSRP of $52,950
  • 2018 Mercedes-AMG® E 63 S: Starting MSRP of $104,400

Luxury & Technology

  • Standard C-Class Features: The new C-Class comes standard with a 17-inch wheels, Sport Styling, PRESAFE®, driver-seat memory settings, and a 7-inch display screen with a central controller.
  • Standard E-Class Features: The new E-Class adds to the C-Class features, offering 18-inch wheels, Luxury or Sport Styling, PRESAFE® and PRESAFE® Sound, front-seat memory settings, and a 12.3-inch display with a touchpad controller.


Interestingly enough, the C-Class and E-Class Sedans start off with the same engine: a 241-hp 2.0L turbo inline-4 rated at 273 lb-ft of torque. Being the smaller vehicle, the C-Class is the more fuel-efficient of the two, earning a 24 city mpg/33 highway mpg rating. Performance differs when you compare you the AMG® C-Class and AMG® E-Class, though. Here’s a quick look at their specs:

  • AMG® Engine: The most powerful engine found in the C-Class and E-Class is an AMG® 4.0L biturbo V8. With this engine, the C-Class generates 503 hp, while the E-Class delivers a thunderous 603 hp.
  • Acceleration: Equipped with the AMG® biturbo V8 and other features like an AMG® SPEEDSHIFT® MCT transmission, the C-Class and E-Class glide to 60 mph in 3.9 and 3.3 seconds, respectively.
