The 2014 Mercedes-Benz C350 is a luxury sedan you will definitely get noticed in. With its stylish detailing and sporty handling, this car is truly a toy for big kids. Mercedes typical styling is seen throughout the entire vehicle and you get that same beautiful interior that you would expect from a luxury sedan. Keep reading to find out some of the many reasons why the 2014 Mercedes-Benz C350 is a great choice for this year.



Almost 1 in every 5 Mercedes-Benz purchases around the world is a C-class model, its no surprise that this year’s C350 had some big shoes to fill. The 2014 C350 received a few nips and tucks to help it stay ahead in the executive compact class. The upgrade to the interior is even greater than that of the outside. It’s really class inside the new model and the overall design is much more satisfying. All 2014 Mercedes-Benz C350s come standard with a 7-inch display which is controlled by a very handy touchpad that mimics several of the gestures on a smartphone (zoom, pinch, tap to click, etc.).

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz C350 also comes with an agility control toggle that allows you to switch between five driving modes: Eco, Comfort, Sport, Sport+, and Individual. Each of these modes help to tailor the car to how you’re driving it depending how much little or how much power you need.

The chassis in the 2014 C350 is a big improvement from last year’s model as well. Unfortunately, most of the engines are actually carried over in slightly tweaked form from the previous vehicle. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz C350 comes stock with a 3.5-litre engine, which will give you 302-horsepower, and 273 pound-feet of torque. With that kind of power, you’re looking at a 0-60 time of just 5.9 seconds, quite impressive for a luxury sedan.

The gearbox from the previous model is also carried over to the 2014 C350. It rides very smoothly in Comfort mode, but as soon as you kick it into Sport mode it seems to get a bit confused as to which gear it should pop into at any given second. It definitely doesn’t compare to the 8-speed automatic transmission you get in the BMW 328i which really makes you feel like you’re riding in a sports car.

The great thing about the 2014 Mercedes-Benz C350 is that they’ve increased the size of the cabin so you get more room both in the front and the back. You’ll find that the backseats are quite comfortable however the headroom is a little bit short do to the panoramic roof that can be problematic if you’re tall. However, legroom is ample and offers a comfortable ride for most passengers.

The new improvements in the 2014 Mercedes-Benz C350 are a big step forward from its previous models. The engines still need a bit of refinement, but overall, the drive is superb and definitely deserves recognition.

Power and Performance:

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz C 350 gets a 302-hp version of this same smooth 3.5-litre engine, making 273 pound-feet of torque. At 5.9 seconds to 60 mph, it's quick, but not shockingly so. Like its stablemates, the rear-drive C 350 is available only with a seven-speed automatic transmission.

In the middle, the all-wheel-drive C 300 models get their motivation from a V-6 and are again offered with a seven-speed automatic. For 2013 they drop the previous engine in favor of a 248-hp version of Mercedes' new-generation 3.5-litre 60-degree V-6, which has direct injection.

The 2014 C350 sedan is rated at 11.76 L/100km city and 8.11 L/100km highway for 10.23 L/100km combined. At 12.38/8.4 L/100km, the C350 coupe scores slightly worse.

Interiors and Special Features:

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is elegant yet relatively understated inside. A 4.5-inch color display sits before the driver relaying trip, audio and navigation information. Even when outfitted with the base M-B Tex vinyl upholstery, the C-Class seats are comfortable and supportive. Rear-seat space is a bit tight in the 5-passenger sedan, and even more cramped in the coupe, which seats four and has a lower roofline that can bump against heads. Like other luxury cars, audio, telephone and navigation are controlled via a console-mounted dial whose functions are viewed on a color-LCD screen in the center dash.

All C-Class models come with a 7-speed automatic transmission, Attention Assist drowsiness monitor, 11 airbags, Mbrace2 telematics, a power sunroof, rain-sensing wipers, garage door opener, auto-dimming mirrors, dual-zone climate control, 8-way power front seats, split-folding rear seat, 5.8-inch color screen with center controller and AM/FM/HD Radio with CD player and auxiliary/USB inputs. Coupes add a panorama roof and paddle shifters for manual gear selection.

Comfort, tech and safety options abound in the 2014 C-Class. Among them are an in-vehicle hotspot for internet connectivity, blind-spot monitor, rear-view camera, push-button start/stop, and a navigation system loaded with useful information such as ATM locations and Zagat Survey restaurant ratings. The high-end audio option is a 12-speaker, 450-watt harman/kardon Logic7 Surround Sound system. A new AMG Sports Package Plus adds enhanced exhaust tuning, sport interior, 18-inch 7-spoke wheels and, on coupes, a revised front suspension.

Safety features:

Every 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class comes standard with antilock brakes, stability and traction control, front side airbags, front pelvic airbags, a driver's knee airbag and full-length side curtain airbags. Also standard are mbrace2 emergency communications and Attention Assist, which automatically monitors the driver for signs of fatigue or inattention and wakes them back up, so to speak, with audible and visual warnings.

Rear side airbags are optional. The Lane Tracking package adds a blind-spot warning system and a lane-departure warning system. The Driver Assistance package adds the lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control and PreSafe brake (active braking system that can automatically apply the brakes if a collision is deemed imminent and the driver doesn't heed the visual/audible warnings).

In Edmunds brake testing, a C350 Sport came to a stop from 60 mph in 108 feet. The C250 Sport and C63 came within 5 feet of matching that outstanding distance. Keep in mind that all of these cars were fitted with summer performance tires; C-Class sedans and coupes with all-season tires likely won't stop quite as short.

In government crash testing, the C-Class sedan received an overall rating of five out of five stars, with four stars overall in a frontal crash and five stars overall in a side crash. In testing performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the C-Class sedan earned a top rating of "Good" for moderate-overlap frontal-offset, side impact and roof-strength tests. It also received the worst rating of "Poor" in the Institute's small-overlap front crash test, but few cars have been subjected to this test, and a majority received similarly poor ratings.
