2015 Mercedes C-Class Sedan US Pricing Announced

Mercedes-Benz USA has just announced the new C-Class sedan will be joining the GLA crossover as an all-new model hitting showrooms this fall. Initial pricing information has been released, sketching in a small 3-model initial range. The cheapest model you can get is the C 300, which retails for $38,400 plus $925 for destination and handling.

That makes the C-Class about $8,500 more expensive than the CLA 250 currently the cheapest Mercedes you can buy. The two cars actually share their 2-liter engine, though the newer C 300 model comes with a power update to 241-hp and 273 lb-ft (US market ratings).

The C 300 is a direct rival to BMW's 328i version of the 3 Series, which is powered by a 2-liter turbo making 240 hp. This costs just $37,400, undercutting the new C-Class by $1,000, but that's to be expected with a brand new car.

Interested? Even if you are, Mercedes won't let you have the C 300 until the first quarter of 2015. Until then, the C300 4Matic will be offered for $40,400 plus destination and arriving at dealerships nationwide on August 25.

Also available at launch will be a C400 4Matic, powered by a new twin-turbo 3-liter V6 engine and offered with standard all-wheel drive. It's the same engine that replaced offered in the base E-Class and has more power and torque than the old 3.5-liter naturally aspirated V6. It's good for 329 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque and will serve as flagship in the range until the arrival of the C 450 Sport and C 63 AMG towards the end of 2015.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
