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

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

Shopping for a small sedan with a sporty streak? Go for the C-Class. Searching for a larger vehicle that’s traditionally luxurious with some modern twists? Try out the E-Class. Both vehicles offer superior performance, comfort, and technology for their respective segments, so how do you choose? Mercedes-Benz of Ontario has put together the following E-Class vs. C-Class comparison to clue you in!

2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan VS 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan
$52,950 Starting MSRP $40,250
22 City MPG 24
30 Highway MPG 33
603-hp AMG® 4.0L V8 biturbo Available AMG® Engine 503-hp AMG® 4.0L V8 biturbo
12.3-inch w/ touchpad controller Central Display 7-inch w/ central controller
PRESAFE® Pre-Collision System PRESAFE® & PRESAFE® Sound


Starting at $40,250, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 300 packs plenty to enjoy into a compact package. For a starting MSRP of $52,950, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E 300 pushes luxury and technology even further. Of course, the C-Class Sedan is more cost-effective, but lacks the E-Class Sedan’s reputation for opulence.

Performance & Features

There are plenty of similarities between the new E-Class and C-Class, but it’s also important for Chino and Fontana drivers to recognize their differences before buying or leasing. Here’s a few examples:

  • Engine: Both the new C-Class and E-Class come furnished with 2.0L turbo inline-4 engine, rated at 241 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque.
  • AMG®: Power variations become more apparent as you move up the E-Class and C-Class lines to the AMG® models. The AMG® C 63 S sports a 503-hp AMG® 4.0L V8 biturbo engine, while the AMG® E 63 S gets an upgraded version that generates 603 hp.
  • Fuel Economy: At the base level, the C-Class is more fuel-efficient, earning 24 mpg city/33 mpg highway vs. the E-Class Sedan’s 22 mpg city/30 mpg highway rating.
  • Features: The C-Class comes with features like genuine wood trim, a power driver’s seat, memory settings, and a power sunroof. Bumping up to the E-Class gets you those features, plus a 12.3-inch display, steering wheel-mounted Touch Controls, and PRESAFE® Sound.
