Mercedes Benz C300 review & price in Nigeria

20/11/2019

We have decided to bring you the Mercedes Benz C300 review & price in Nigeria to enable you make an informed decision when intending to buy one!

When the popular Mercedes Benz 190E was launched lots of decades ago, it was the talk of the town until the late 80s. Fans of the brand, therefore, wanted a more sophisticated model that has more class and the Mercedes Benz C-class was launched as a replacement. In 1994, when it was introduced, it looked as luxurious, stylish and powerful as it still is today. The series comes as a convertible, coupe and a sedan. It first started as a rear-wheel-drive with engine options of four and six-cylinder gas or four and five-cylinder diesel engines. The changes later were made to be in tandem with what is in vogue. This is why you would find different features in the over three generations of the C-class. One of the most prominent models is what we will be reviewing.

Here's the much anticipated Mercedes Benz C300 review & updates on its price in Nigeria, brought to you by Naijacarnews.com!

The Mercedes-Benz C300 was launched same time as the Benz C350​

1. Mercedes-Benz fuel economy & performance

The first set of Mercedes Benz C300 (2008-2014) has an average mpg of 23 combined. But the most recent ones come with an almost standard 29 miles per gallon on the highway and 21 mpg in the city. That means if you fill the tank of your C300, you can drive almost 700 km nonstop. The same way it does amazingly well in fuel efficiency, it does in performance. The first generation C-class came with a 4.3 liter V8 which has a 5-speed automatic transmission and a 3.6 liter straight 6 cylinder engine with a 4-speed automatic gearbox. The second generation had a 3.2 liter and 2.6 liter V6 engine options. But the next generation (which has the C300) was a good upgrade.

The Mercedes Benz C300 was launched in 2008, and it came alongside the C350. Even though the latter seems to have more performance, it doesn't relegate the C300 to the background. The C300 comes with a standard 3-liter V6 engine and a 6-speed manual transmission. There are several trim levels or variants that come with a 7-speed automatic transmission. Regardless, all the C300's has all-wheel drive options. As compared to other C-class series, the C300 has a more sleek steering wheel which is quite easy to use.

2. Mercedes-Benz highlight features

Lots of reviews have shown that the Mercedes Benz C300 is a more comfortable ride than even the C63 AMG and C350. The dashboard has more user-friendly controls and the cockpit seems more organized than other C-class series. Car owners had complained about buttons being littered everywhere in other series, but it seems different in the C300. The model also has a good navigation system, simple audio system that allows you to use your aux cord and switch CD and DVDs. There's also the heated power seats and more. Dual-zone climate control, driver assistance, and safety systems can be found in the C300 made from 2016 - along with its improved turbocharged inline 4 cylinder engine.

The cockpit of 2008 Mercedes-Benz C300 is quite organised

The Mercedes Benz C300 isn't a spacious car per se. If you intend to carry lots of cargo, this vehicle isn't for you. Perhaps, the wagon would do some work but it might not be to your satisfaction.

However, the model is really sporty and well built. It is comfy as it has just the right leg room, head and hip rooms to contain 5 passengers including the driver. The interior looks very luxurious and the airbags deploy right. Since the vehicle is sporty, you won't expect much space in the boot. Nigeria is one place where drivers consider the conveying of 4 people at the back seat and an extra two in front as a norm. That doesn't quite fit this model. If you want comfort and style, the Mercedes Benz C300 is ideal.
