Is there a Mercedes-Benz vehicle more iconic than the C-Class? The popular C 300 trim is known far and wide as one of the best small luxury sedans. Part of that popularity comes from its long life, the quality of its luxury amenities, and fair price for its class.
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class goes all the way back to 1994 in terms of production years, but the 300 isn’t the only version of the vehicle out there. For the purpose of this page, we will only focus on the C 300. To find used models of the C 300, explore Mercedes-Benz dealerships where people have traded in older models for newer ones. As an example of what you can expect when buying a Mercedes-Benz C 300, refer to the chart below. This chart refers to the 2017 model year of the C 300 sedan as an example.

Even if the Mercedes-Benz C 300 is the base model of the C-Class, it still comes with features that make it something special. Expect to find recently used models from the last five to six years most commonly on used car lots. This means most pre-owned C 300 vehicles will belong to the fourth generation and look relatively similar because of it. The closer the model year gets to 2020, the more you can expect to see more effort put into the infotainment system and entertainment technology.
If you are new to Mercedes-Benz ownership, expect a totally different feel out of driving one. The C 300 is available as either a sedan or coupe as well. You can find the C-Class extend on into the Mercedes-AMG and convertible as well, but those models are not considered C 300 models. The SUV equivalent of the C-Class is called the Mercedes-Benz GLC in recent model years.
