Deciding between Mercedes-Benz C-Class and E-Class sedans in San Diego? C-Class models offer luxury at an accessible price point, while the higher E-Class starting price brings additional standard features and powerful engine upgrades. Compare the 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. E-Class with Mercedes-Benz of San Diego, and then browse our virtual showroom to see what’s on our lot right now!

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

To get started, we’ll take a look at the price difference between C-Class and E-Class price range and available upgrades:

2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan

  • Base MSRP of $41,600* and top trim MSRP of $76,200*
  • Four trim upgrades, including three high-performance AMG® variants

2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan

  • Base MSRP or$54,250* and top trim MSRP of $107,500*
  • Four trim upgrades, including two high-performance AMG® variants

While the sedan body style is most popular with C-Class and E-Class drivers in Del Mar, both of these models are also available in coupe and cabriolet configurations. However, another key difference between C-Class and E-Class lineups is that only the E-Class is offered as a wagon.

C-Class vs. E-Class: Performance

In terms of performance, there’s little difference between C-Class and E-Class models at the base trim. Both come standard with a 2.0L turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine with an output of 255 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. That said, there is a difference between C-Class and E-Class fuel economy estimates:

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

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

The E-Class offers more power in its range-topping trim, but the C-Class is certainly no slouch. Either model has what it takes to impress performance enthusiasts in San Diego.

C-Class vs. E-Class: Interior Features

For some drivers, the larger E-Class cargo area will be a key deciding factor. For others, the more significant difference between C-Class and E-Class models concerns their technology features and amenities:

  • 12.6 cubic feet of trunk space
