2014 Mercedes-Benz C250 Overview

Automotive Editor - March 24, 2014

Compact doesn’t mean basic when it comes to the Mercedes-Benz C250. Long known for its luxury and quality, the C250 comes surprisingly close to the level of refinement found in the brand’s most exclusive sedans.

What's New for 2014

A split-folding rear seat is now standard on all models.

Choosing Your Mercedes-Benz C250

Available as a coupe or sedan, the rear-drive C250 carries a turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder with 201 horsepower, hooked to a seven-speed automatic transmission. The 1.8-liter might seem smallish for this class, but the payoff is 25 mpg in combined city and highway driving.

Standard equipment is generous for an entry-level luxury car and includes niceties like a sunroof, automatic wipers, LED running lamps, dual power seats, Bluetooth phone and audio, and HD radio.

The line is divided into three basic trim levels:

  • Base Coupe: Coupe versions get a few extra standard features that are optional on the sedans: a panoramic sunroof, driver seat memory and a power tilt/telescope steering wheel.

All variants can be equipped with a number of option packages:

CarsDirect Tip

The C250 sedan in Luxury trim strikes us the best all-around value in the lineup—not to mention the most prestigious looking. It’s true that the coupe can be made to handle with greater precision, but the cost of the performance upgrades probably isn’t worth it to most luxury car buyers.
