The 2009 Mercedes-Benz C-Class sports a long list of luxury features, with the difficult COMAND screen-based interface among them.

The 2009 Mercedes-Benz C-Class comes standard with a long tally of features, of which Kelley Blue Book mentions both "a motorized LCD display" and "dual-zone automatic climate control.” ConsumerGuide lists other impressive standard features to be a "power sunroof, AM/FM/weatherband/CD/MP3 player, digital-media player connection, satellite radio," and a Bluetooth "wireless cell phone link."

ConsumerGuide has many compliments for the C-Class, such as "clearly marked buttons" for the climate controls, but not for COMAND; they feel that "audio controls are more complicated" and "the navigation system itself is difficult to use, with many controls buried in a series of menus and submenus." Edmunds mentions a new version of "Mercedes' COMAND system" that "combines physical dash buttons with a mouselike controller" and allows the driver to control many of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class' functions.

Among the various options, Kelley Blue Book notes that "optional on the C300 are auto-dimming power folding side mirrors, heated front seats, SIRIUS Satellite Radio," and "rain-sensing wipers." Cars.com reviewers appreciate the available options that Mercedes-Benz's 2009 version offers, especially the "impressive Harman Kardon six-CD/DVD surround sound system," but are slightly put off by having to pay "extra for folding seats," an optional feature on the Mercedes-Benz C-Class that they say is "standard in the least-expensive of cars."

Edmunds feels the coolest option is the "Multimedia Package," which transforms the 2009 Mercedes-Benz C-Class "into a mobile sound studio—and movie theater. A built-in hard-drive not only powers the navigation system, it can also store up to 4GB." Even more unusual is the fact that on Mercedes-Benz's 2009 C-Class, "with the car in park, the car can also play DVDs through the pop-up LCD screen and superb Logic 7 surround-sound system," according to Edmunds.

Conclusion

The 2009 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is near the top of its class in features.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
