Power Options

As befitting its status as a world-class luxury vehicle, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan delivers an expressive and engaging ride through one of four power options.

  • 4.0L V8 Biturbo: Handcrafted and signed by a single craftsman, the 4.0L harnesses up to 469 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque, making zero to 60 in just 4 seconds while ensuring 38% greater fuel efficiency than its larger predecessor.

Regardless of your chosen engine, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan provides immense power tamed by a sophisticated 7G-TRONIC 7-speed automatic transmission, which uses two overdrive ratios for enhanced highway efficiency, adaptive logic to suit your driving style, and shift paddles to let you take command.
