The E-Class offers a range of engines, from the 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four to the 6.3-liter V8. The C-Class is available with either a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four or a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6. The E-Class also offers a hybrid option, the E350e, which combines a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four with an electric motor for a total output of 320 horsepower.
Comfort and Luxury
The E-Class is the larger of the two models, so it offers more space and comfort. The C-Class has a more intimate cabin, with seating for four. The E-Class, on the other hand, has seating for five and a larger cargo area.
Both models come with a range of luxury features, such as leather upholstery, heated and ventilated seats, and dual-zone climate control. The E-Class also offers an optional Burmester® surround sound system and a panoramic sunroof.
The E-Class and C-Class both come with a range of standard safety features, such as a rearview camera, adaptive cruise control, and automatic emergency braking. The E-Class also offers optional features, such as lane-keeping assist and blind-spot monitoring.
The C-Class starts at $41,400, while the E-Class starts at $54,000. The price difference is due to the larger size and more powerful engine options available in the E-Class.
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class and C-Class are both excellent luxury vehicles. The E-Class offers more power and space, while the C-Class is more affordable and fuel-efficient. Ultimately, the choice between the two models comes down to your budget and what you’re looking for in a luxury vehicle.
