The Mercedes-Benz C 300 and the Lexus IS 300 compete head to head in the luxury automobile market, but in a side by side comparison the Mercedes-Benz C 300 becomes the clear choice.

Why is the Mercedes-Benz miles ahead of the Lexus?

Performance and Handling 


With 241 hp and a new 9-speed, the turbo C 300 rushes to 60 in just 5.8 seconds. Its Direct Injection and multispark ignition can self-tune in milliseconds. The turbo C 300 doesn't just move, it motivates with efficiency and exuberance. It doesn't just hold the road, it embraces the joy to be found around every corner. Any sport sedan performs. The C-Class outperforms. It has a 9 speed automatic transmission compared to the IS's 8.  


The C 300's new 9G-TRONIC automatic is smoother, sportier and smarter. DYNAMIC SELECT lets you dial in the car's driving character, from energetic Sport mode to easygoing ECO. There's even a mode you can set up as you like.


Serious Design


Distinctive design is just the start of a C 300 Sedan. Sporty styling is standard, with a bold grille and 17-inch wheels. Ultramodern style can't conceal a tradition of craftsmanship that's generations deep. Four wood options are all finished by hand. Seats are impeccably tailored, invitingly contoured. Three colors of ambient lighting are available. The C 300 offers genuine wood trim on the floor console, doors and instrument panel not available on the Lexus IS 300.




The C 300 watches the driver ahead. And the one behind the wheel. C-Class safety technology keeps an eye on your future. Radar helps spot hazards in your path. A team of standard and optional systems can monitor all around you, alert you, help you brake, and even respond on your behalf to help reduce collision risk. 


Comfort and Convenience


From its vivid screen to its available Burmester® audio and touchpad COMAND® navigation, the keyword is clarity. Intuitive controls, hands-free Bluetooth® and easy-to-personalize settings make every advance feel like second nature. With more cargo storage capacity than the Lexus IS you can bring along that extra travel case.


Audio and Entertainment 


In the car or out, Mercedes me connects you to your world. Its smartphone app includes Remote Start and far more. It also brings the Internet and WiFi to your car. Five years of mbrace® Connect services are standard.
