The 2017 Mercedes-Benz C300 is a sleek and sexy two-door coupe that’s easy on the eyes and a blast to drive.
But just how fast is it from 0-60 MPH? Nathan and I decided to find out and in the process, we review the car. Let’s start with some basic facts first.
The 2017 Mercedes-Benz C300 Coupe is powered by a 2.0L inline 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 241 HP and 272 lb-ft of torque. In the case of our AWD test Merc, all of that power goes through a 7-Speed automatic transmission that spins all four wheels.
The base price of the car is $44,650 but our as-tested coupe is $57,975. That’s because our test car came equipped with an almost $5,000 premium package, which includes lots of expensive tech such as blind spot assist and even an electronic trunk closer. The car also has the 321 sport package that gives you some of the AMG bits like the flat-bottom steering wheel. Nathan and I were both scratching our heads trying to think of a more expensive car with less horsepower.
But in the end that didn’t matter very much as the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C300 blasted to 60 MPH at a mile above sea level with ease.
How fast you ask?
Just watch the video below to find out. Also, keep in mind that we shot this video review live at IMI Motorsports Complex. This is TFL’s test track so the video quality starts out a bit shaky. I think you’ll enjoy the review as Nathan forces me to climb into the back seat to test out the car’s rear leg room.
