The 2011 Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan lineup features four models: the 451-hp C63 AMG; the 268-hp C350 Sport, plus the 228-hp C300 in Luxury and Sport trims.
The latest version of the Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system is optionally available on the C300. The 4MATIC system features a full-time all-wheel-drive system that’s cleanly integrated into the seven-speed automatic transmission and fits right into the standard body, utilizing the existing front suspension.
For 2011, Sport models are now equipped with LED daytime running lights and black inlays around the headlights, and all C-Class models come with new headlight control switches and ESP controls relocated to the instrument cluster.
All 2011 Mercedes C-Class models boast Agility Control, which provides the benefits of both soft and stiff shock absorbers. The C-Class comes with an “Eco/Sport” button, and in the Sport mode, understeer and body lean are reduced. Selecting the Sport mode quickens throttle response, increases steering feel and raises shift points for maximum performance. In the Eco mode, shift points are lowered, and the vehicle starts off in second gear for optimized fuel economy.
C-Class standard equipment includes a power sunroof, eight-way power front seats with lumbar support, two-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth connectivity and a central controller with a five-inch display screen. A display in the center of the speedometer is linked to a 12-button multi-function steering wheel that can call up a variety of helpful information.
Base model estimated mpg: 18/26
Estimated starting price: $34,865
