A new Mercedes-Benz sedan makes a stunning addition to any driveway in the Saco and Falmouth area. You have several options to consider in the sedan lineup at Mercedes-Benz of Scarborough, but if you’re ready to elevate your drives beyond entry-level luxury, we recommend that you start with the C-Class or E-Class. You can test drive both sedans with us in Scarborough, but before you make the trip, check out the following guide to learn the basic differences between the 2023 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. E-Class.

2023 C-Class vs. E-Class: Configurations and Pricing

The most prominent difference between the C-Class and E-Class lies in their pricing and options. You can bring a new C-Class home to Cape Elizabeth for a lower price than the new E-Class. However, the E-Class offers three more configurations than the C-Class, so with a higher price range comes more options and more features. Compare the C-Class vs. E-Class pricing and model lineups:

2023 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

  • C 300 Sedan: $44,850 MSRP*
  • C 300 4MATIC® Sedan: $46,850 MSRP*

2023 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

  • E 350 Sedan: $56,750 MSRP*
  • E 350 4MATIC® Sedan: $59,250 MSRP*
  • E 450 4MATIC® Sedan: $65,550 MSRP*
  • AMG® E 53 Sedan: $81,300 MSRP*
  • AMG® E 63 S Sedan: $112,800 MSRP*

2023 C-Class vs. E-Class: Power and Efficiency

If you compare the base engine of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. E-Class, you’ll discover that both sedans come with a standard 255-hp 2.0L inline-4 turbo engine and a 9-speed automatic transmission. However, the engine produces different mpg ratings for both models, and their torque figures are also different. Additionally, this is the only engine option for the C-Class. But, if you were to upgrade to the E-Class, you’d be able to consider available AMG® engines in upper-level trims. Compare the base performance figures of the C-Class vs. E-Class:

2023 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Base Specs

  • 2.0L inline-4 turbo engine
  • 9-speed automatic transmission
  • 255 horsepower
  • 295 lb-ft of torque

2023 C-Class vs. E-Class: Interior Space and Features
