2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Starts at $31,975…Why Does it Only Have 268hp?!

Mercedes-Benz has announced the pricing for the new 2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class lineup. The C300 Sport Sedan will start at $31,975, the C300 Luxury Sedan will start at $33,675, and the C350 Sport Sedan will start at $37,275.

The C300 Sport and Luxury models will feature 228 horsepower and 221 lb-ft. of torque. The C350 Sport Sedan will feature 268 horsepower and 258 lb-ft. of torque. Those numbers seem kind of low compared to the BMW 335i and Lexus IS 350. I know the C63 is coming soon, but that is going to compete with the new M3.

The new sedan will arrive on August 7th. The new C-Class is larger than the last generation and the C300 models are available with an all new 4Matic all-wheel-drive.

A power sunroof, eight way power front seats, two-zone automatic climate control, 17-inch wheels, Bluetooth connectivity and an LCD display are all standard.
