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. 

Conclusion

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is no hybrid, but for its class, it scores decent gas mileage.

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.
