Mercedes-Benz C-Class

(2014 - present)

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is a medium-sized saloon and estate model. The current generation was launched in 2014 and was updated in 2018. The current C-Class is the latest in a long line of premium smaller saloons from Mercedes-Benz.

The C-Class is also available in coupé and convertible body styles, and there are high-performance models from Mercedes-AMG. We are currently building separate pages for all these versions, so check back soon.

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class has received consistently good scores from across the UK media. It is particularly praised for its interior design and comfort, although the BMW 3 Series remains a better car for keen drivers.
