There’s nothing better than a luxury Mercedes-Benz sedan, but which one is right for you? When comparing the 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs E-Class sedans, you can see that depending on your lifestyle one or the other might better suit you. You can take an in-depth look for yourself with our 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. E-Class match-up below, then come to our Greenwich dealership and see each of them in person. 



C-Class vs. E-Class: Price & Trim Range

There’s no way to go wrong between the C-Class and E-Class. Both are powerful, quality, luxury sedans that would be the envy of anyone in Rye. However, you can start your comparison by looking at how they compare on pricing:

2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

  • Starting Price: $41,600 MSRP* for the C 300 Sedan
  • Trim LEvels: Five trim levels, including three AMG® models
  • Range-Topping Price: $76,200 MSRP* for the AMG® C 63 S Sedan

2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

  • Starting Price: $54,250* for the E 350 Sedan
  • Trim Levels: Five trim levels, including two AMG® models
  • Range-Topping Price: $107,500 MSRP* for the AMG® E 63 S Sedan

C-Class vs. E-Class: Body Styles – In this comparison, we’ve focused on the C-Class and E-Class sedans. However, it’s important to point out that the C-Class and the E-Class are both available as coupes and cabriolets as well. In fact, the E-Class is even offered as a Wagon!


C-Class vs. E-Class: Performance 

Despite their differences in starting price, the compact C-Class and mid-size E-Class come with the same starting engine: a 2.0-Liter Turbocharged Inline 4-Cylinder configuration. This means that both vehicles offer 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque as standard, but because of their different body shapes their fuel economy differs:

  • Up to an EPA-estimated 23 mpg city and 35 mpg highway** with the C 300
  • Up to an EPA-estimated 22 mpg city and 31 mpg highway** with the E 350

Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan Engine Upgrades

  • 385-hp AMG®-enhanced biturbo® V6
  • 469-hp AMG® biturbo® V8
  • 503-hp AMG® biturbo® V8

Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan Engine Upgrades

  • 362-hp turbocharged Inline-6
  • 429-hp Inline-6 with electric auxiliary compressor
  • 603-hp AMG® biturbo® V8

New Canaan drivers who want a more fuel-efficient vehicle might prefer the C-Class for this reason. If you just want raw performance, the E-Class has a higher ceiling in terms of horsepower. 


C-Class vs. E-Class: Interior Features

The E-Class Sedan may have a bigger trunk than its C-Class counterpart, but the biggest difference between C-Class and E-Class sedans actually has to do with their standard features:

2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Standard Features

  • 10.25-inch high-resolution display
  • Digital instrument cluster with 12.3-inch display
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Power front seats with driver-seat memory
  • 12.6 cubic feet of trunk space

2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Standard Features

  • 12.3-inch high resolution central display
  • Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX)
