Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.
You can interpret our ratings in the following way:
5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.
4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.
3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.
2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.
1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.
2020 C-Class is in showrooms, but its offers are limited:
Mercedes dealers stock plenty of C-Class Sedans, but the C-Class Coupe and Cabriolet are harder to find.
The refreshed 2019 C-Class, which includes a new grille, a few updated colors, a new digital instrument cluster, a 14-horsepower increase, and a $1,150 price increase on the C300, is ready for your driveway. The carryover 2020 C-Class is in showrooms too, but its offers are less attractive.
All Mercedes-Benz offers are national and end September 30, 2019.
Unadvertised incentives remain:
The 2019 C-Class also boasts unadvertised incentives of $1,500 on the cabriolet, $1,000 on the sedan, and $500 on the coupe. You can combine these incentives with the low APR deal below.
Dealerships can pass the incentive on to a buyer and reduce the MSRP or keep it as profit, so shop around to get the best deal.
The 2020 C-Class also has an unadvertised incentive, but it is only good for up to $500 off.
Leases from $399/mo.:
In September, the 2019 C-Class sees a few small tweaks to a few of its promotional lease offers.
The lease offers start from $399 per month on the C300 Premium Sedan with $4,723 due at signing ($180 increase). This results in an effective monthly cost of $530 ($5 increase). Despite the increased cost, the 2019 C300 Premium Sedan's lease is still a good value relative to its MSRP.
At the top of the promotional lease range, the C300 Premium Cabriolet runs $599 per month ($10 increase) with $5,243 due at signing ($10 increase). This results in an effective monthly cost of $745 ($11 increase), which is a bad value relative to its MSRP. Check out all the 2019 C-Class' promotional leases in the table below.
The 2020 C-Class has a few debut lease offers in September that start from $429 per month with $4,223 due at signing for the C300 Premium Sedan. You can see all the 2020 C-Class promotional lease offers in the table below, but with effective monthly costs of $546 to $786, they are not good values relative to their MSRPs.
APR deals remain:
Qualified buyers can get the 2019 C-Class Sedan for as little as 2.99% APR for 72 months. Plus, buyers can combine this low APR with the unadvertised discount above.
The C300 Coupe and Cabriolet still have no APR offers, nor will Mercedes cover the first payment, so buyers must settle for standard rates and the aforementioned unadvertised incentives.
There are no APR offers on the 2020 C-Class.
This ranks as an excellent deal based on our expert analysis of: vehicle price, length of lease term, amount due at signing, monthly payment, etc.
