The 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class ranks 2 out of 14 Up­scale Small Cars. This rank­ing is based on our anal­y­sis of pub­lished re­views and test drives of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, as well as re­li­a­bil­ity and safety data. The re­designed 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class com­pares fa­vor­ably with its com­peti­tors, ac­cord­ing to re­view­ers who sin­gle out its lux­u­ri­ous in­te­rior and com­posed ride. A tur­bocharged four­cylin­der en­gine is stan­dard in the re­designed 2015 C300 sedan, and crit­ics say it pro­duces abun­dant power that meets the needs of the ma­jor­ity of driv­ers. They note that the twin-tur­bocharged V6 in the C400 sedan is ap­pre­cia­bly more pow­er­ful. The stan­dard trans­mis­sion is a seven-speed au­to­matic that a num­ber of test driv­ers say shifts too slowly. Ac­cord­ing to the EPA, the all-wheel drive 2015 Mercedes-Benz C300 4Matic gets 24/31 mpg city/high­way, which is bet­ter than what most com­pa­ra­bly equipped ri­vals get. Though some re­view­ers note that its steer­ing lacks feed­back and its cor­ner­ing isn’t as sharp as that of some sport sedans, most re­port that the C-Class has com­posed han­dling and a com­fort­able ride. Be­cause the C-Class has good safety and re­li­a­bil­ity rat­ings, as well as plenty of fam­ily-friendly fea­tures and space, it’s our 2015 Best Up­scale Small Car for Fam­i­lies. Re­view­ers re­port the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan’s cabin is among the best in the class, with su­pe­rior ma­te­ri­als, out­stand­ing con­struc­tion qual­ity and an eye-catch­ing de­sign. Au­to­mo­tive writ­ers say the C-Class’ front seats are roomy and the rear seat pro­vides ac­cept­able legroom. They crit­i­cize the new in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem’s touch­pad for be­ing perplexing to use. The C-Class’ trunk is some­what small for the class. Stan­dard fea­tures in the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C300 sedan in­clude Blue­tooth, two USB ports, push-but­ton start, driver drowsi­ness mon­i­tor­ing and for­ward col­li­sion warn­ing with au­to­matic brak­ing. Avail­able fea­tures in­clude leather up­hol­stery, heated and ven­ti­lated front seats, satel­lite ra­dio, a Burmester au­dio sys­tem, Mercedes’ CO­MAND in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem, nav­i­ga­tion, a rearview cam­era, par­al­lel park­ing as­sist, front and rear park­ing sen­sors, a head-up dis­play, a Wi-Fi hot spot (re­quires sub­scrip­tion to Mercedes’ mbrace telem­at­ics ser­vice), pedes­trian and cross traf­fic de­tec­tion, a panoramic sun­roof, adap­tive cruise con­trol, ac­tive lane keep as­sist, blind spot mon­i­tor­ing and a hands-free power trunk lid.
