CPO Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2016 Lincoln MKZ

In the performance arena, a CPO Mercedes-Benz C-Class gives the 2016 Lincoln MKZ a run for its money. In particular, a CPO 2015 RWD Mercedes-Benz C 300 comes equipped with a standard turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine, pumping out 241 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. The 2016 FWD MKZ sports only a standard EcoBoost 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that can only reach 231 hp with regular fuel alongside 270 lb-ft of torque.

Handling Technology

The 2016 Lincoln MKZ features a variety of driving dynamics, such as continuously controlled dampening, electric power-assisted steering, and active noise control. However, any Mercedes-Benz CPO sedan from the C-Class promises an exciting yet relaxed drive every time. Each C-Class sedan comes equipped with 4-mode AGILITY SELECT®, which allows drivers to modify throttle, steering response, and transmission to accommodate different terrains. All in all, the C-Class is built for performance driving.

Interior Features

As luxury vehicles, you’d expect nothing less than a myriad of features from the C-Class and MKZ. While the new MKZ models include plenty of helpful gadgets, almost any CPO C-Class sedan delivers more. Late-model CPO C-Class cars include standard features indicative of higher tier luxury vehicles, including:

  • COMAND®
  • 7-inch display screen (available 8.4-inch)
  • Bluetooth®*

CPO Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2016 Cadillac ATS

For any luxury vehicle, grade-A performance is a must-have. The 2016 Cadillac ATS offers a choice of three engines, including a standard 2.5L 4-cylinder that doles out 202 hp and 191 lb-ft of torque. If you’re looking for greater power from a standard luxury engine though, the C-Class is for you. You can easily find a CPO Mercedes-Benz C-Class vehicle that packs more of a punch, be it a 2010 C 300 sedan, 2012 C 250 coupe, or a 2015 C 400 sedan.

Transmissions and Drivetrains

Paired with the 2016 Cadillac ATS’s base 2.5L engine is an 8-speed automatic transmission. Overall, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class boasts a 7-speed automated manual transmission, offering a well-balanced ride. The 2016 ATS requires an engine upgrade to enjoy the solid control all-wheel drive affords. What’s more, opting for the 2.0L turbo engine with all-wheel drive kicks the 2016 ATS’s starting MSRP up from $33,215 to $38,240 for the standard trim. Meanwhile, for much less, you could drive home in a CPO Mercedes-Benz C 300 4MATIC® or C 400 4MATIC®, free of compromise.

Standard Equipment

When it comes to features, a CPO Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2016 Cadillac ATS is almost an even match. However, late-model CPO C-Class vehicles include a handful of standard features not found on the new ATS sedan, including a rearview camera, 7-inch display screen, Bluetooth®* audio connectivity, and collision prevention technology. Finding a CPO model that contains all of the features you want, and at an incredible value, is a breeze when you visit RBM of Alpharetta.
