What’s the Difference Between C-Class and E-Class Sedans?

Not sure where to start? Here’s a basic overview of the difference between C-Class and E-Class models in 2020:

Price: C-Class vs. E-Class

  • The new C-Class starts at $41,400 MSRP*. For the range-topping AMG® C 63 S Sedan, you can expect to pay around $74,600 MSRP*.
  • For the new E-Class, pricing begins at $54,050* MSRP. The AMG® E 63 S Sedan is available for $106,350 MSRP*.

Trim Levels and Body Styles: C-Class vs. E-Class

  • The C-Class Sedan can be had in two basic configurations, with or without 4MATIC® all-wheel drive. Three AMG® C-Class sedans are also available.
  • With the E-Class, you can upgrade 4MATIC® AWD, and choose between the E 350 and E 450 configurations. Two AMG® E-Class sedans build on the capabilities of the E 450.
  • Both the C-Class and E-Class are available not only as sedans, but also as coupes and cabriolets! The E-Class alone is also offered in a stylish wagon build.


Performance: Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. E-Class

When you choose a Mercedes-Benz sedan, you’re sure to love how you feel behind the wheel. Although the E-Class has, in years past, started with a less powerful engine, the new year sees each sedan with the same starting equipment:

  • Standard 2.0-Liter Turbocharged Inline 4-Cylinder Engine
    • 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque for both the C-Class and E-Class
    • EPA-Estimated Fuel Economy (C-Class) – 24 mpg city, 35 mpg highway
