Mercedes Adds C300 Performance Edge To Personal Luxury Sedan
Amid the chaos in the auto industry facing hydra-headed challenges of pandemic slowdowns, chip shortages, supply chain disruptions and consumer economic concerns, the exquisite 2022 Mercedes-Benz C300 sedan is starting to look like a relative bargain.
With powerful and opulent pickups, SUVs and a bevy of new EV models skewing the pricing curve ever higher, with the average US vehicle transaction prices still well over $48,000, this $62,270 well equipped compact performance luxury Benz sedan is more compelling than ever.
Sporting a new more aggressive look, with a striking down swept hood the Mercedes 300 carries through the close-to-the-road competition look through with a race-ready lower front fascia, below the iconic three-pointed star logo.
Powered by a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder inline turbo mild hybrid powertrain, this stylish sedan mates crisp 255 horsepower performance with a sophisticated 9-speed automatic trans, with optional paddle shift action.
Coupled with the 4Matic all-wheel drive handling the $1,900 driver assistance package is commendable for a comprehensive suite of interactive driving safety aids including Active Steering, Lane Change, Lane Keeping, Blind Spot assist, and Cross-Traffic, Evasive Assist, and Active Emergency Stop Assist.
