Good car good price

2008 Mercedes-Benz C300 Benjamin - Hendersonville, NC 04/06/2015

I like the service and enjoy the professionalism.


2008 Mercedes-Benz C300 stevied - Kansas 05/27/2011

Big fan of Mercedes Benz vehicles! I have owned the ML500, C240, CLK500, and the S430. I am a lover of the older model benz. This year I decided to try a newer version and I am very pleased with this model. You get what you pay for. Simply the best!

Sensible Sporty Luxury

2008 Mercedes-Benz C300 NM - Washington, DC 02/06/2012

I vacillated back and forth between getting this vehicle vs an even more sensible Infiniti G37x. SO glad I went with the C300 Sport 4Matic. Despite the far reduced HP, this is a great ride, feels like plenty of power and my she looks. No comparison. Pros: absolutely gorgeous car, thoughtful features - far more than the other 'fully loaded' vehicles I've owned, gas mileage is fine...with the extended warranty I'm looking forward to a long life together! Cons: the navigation entry could really benefit from a touch screen; silver accessory fittings around cupholder etc are bonded and will lift off if not taken care of properly. Leg room in the back is apparently limited - but what are you expecting in a vehicle this size?!

2008 Mercedes-Benz C300 Overview

The 2008 C300 is a part of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class of cars. It is the smallest sedan of all Mercedes-Benz vehicles and also the most affordable of the luxurious lineup. It is available with two different styles: Sport and Luxury. Both are catered toward different driving experiences, with C300 Luxury being a bit more conventional than the performance-driven C300 Sport.

2008 Mercedes-Benz C300 History

For the 2008 model, Mercedes-Benz experienced plenty of success on the market. It's the second-bestselling entry-level luxury car for its model year, and saw worldwide success as well.

  • The 2008 Mercedes-Benz C300 kickstart the third generation of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class vehicles
  • The C-lineup was introduced in 1993

How It Drives

The C300 is a well-controlled and precise vehicle. Drivers who enjoy a solid driving experience are going to enjoy the capable Mercedes-Benz C300. It has crisp steering. The suspension does a good job of rough roads overall body motion. Of the two styles, the Sport is overall better at handling and cruising down the highway. Both have plenty of features to keep drivers entertained.

Used 2008 Mercedes-Benz C300 Value

The Mercedes-Benz C300 has a sleek appearance, helping it stand out against other entry-level luxury vehicles. As with all luxury vehicles, its features were ahead of their time. So as time passes, you may find that these features that were once optional are now completely standard, such as Bluetooth connectivity and an entertainment system. As a result, the 2008 edition of this vehicle is much more affordable now than ever.

Design & Performance

Though the Mercedes-Benz C300 is considered an entry-level luxury car, don't be fooled - it's still packed with features and gadgets.

It has two distinct styles: Luxury and Sport. Each overlap in core features, but have a few different style tweaks and a very different driving experience.

The Mercedes-Benz C300 Luxury follows tradition, with the following features:

  • A chrome grille
  • Three-pointed star hood ornament
  • Chrome and walnut wood trim interior

The Mercedes-Benz C300 Sport includes these features to help it live up to its name:

  • Streaked grille, with a large emblem in the center
  • No hood ornament
  • Matte-aluminum or maple wood trim for the interior
  • Lowered frame
  • Sports-tuned suspension
  • Larger wheels
  • Improved braking system
  • Dual exhaust

Powertrain & Engine

The Mercedes-Benz C300 comes with a 3.0L V6 engine as a standard. It comes with either a six-speed manual standard or a seven-speed automatic transmission to swap in. The vehicle is available with all-wheel drive as an option. It has a great drivetrain with plenty of power, though there are other options in the C-Class line of Mercedes-Benz vehicles that have better performance.

If you are looking for a bit more firepower in your car, the C300's brother is the C350. This performance-oriented version has a 3.5L V6 engine and more horsepower than the C300. At the top of the C-Class lineup is the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG, whose V8 engine deserves a class all its own.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

This compact car has plenty of style, but could use more space for passengers. The backseat may feel a bit snug - headroom may feel tight for tall adults, but legroom will definitely be tight. Optional features and upgrades are available, such as:

  • Heated seats
  • Rear sunshade
  • Panorama sunroof
  • Dual-zone climate control
  • Music storage
  • Voice-activated navigation
  • DVD entertainment system

The C-Class of cars is available as a sedan, station wagon, and coupe.
