2015 Mercedes-Benz C300: 24 mpg city, 31 mpg highway, 27 mpg combined
2015 Mercedes-Benz C400: 21 mpg city, 29 mpg highway, 24 mpg combined
The official gas mileage figures for the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class reveal it to be a remarkably efficient vehicle in light of its size, luxury, and performance. On the other hand, it's no diesel or hybrid in terms of greenness.
The C300 4Matic uses a new 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine to score 24 mpg city, 31 mpg highway, and 27 mpg combined—a gain of two mpg over the previous 1.8-liter turbocharged engine in last year’s C250, despite increased performance and the addition of standard 4Matic all-wheel drive as well.
The 2015 C400 4Matic rates only marginally poorer at the pump, despite its turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine: 21 mpg city, 29 mpg highway, and 24 mpg combined.
In an early drive with the four-cylinder C300 4Matic, we saw more than 30 mpg in a 90-mile mix of freeways, suburban traffic-light conditions, and tight two-lane country roads. Then over a much longer trip of more than 200 miles in the V-6 C400 4Matic we averaged around 21 mpg on a mix of two-lane rural roads and freeways.
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is no hybrid, but for its class, it scores decent gas mileage.
