An entry-level luxury sedan, the 2010 Mercedes-Benz C-Class seats five-passengers and is available with RWD or 4MATIC AWD. Three models are available; the C300, C360 and the powerful C63 AMG. The C300 is powered by a 228 hp 3.0L V6 which is paired with a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic. The C350 is fitted with a larger 3.5L V6 which generates 268 hp linked to the seven-speed automatic transmission. At the top of the lineup sits the potent C63 AMG which squeezes a 6.3L V8 under the hood. This engine produces 451 hp and is fitted with a seven-speed automatic that can be shifted via steering wheel-mounted paddles.
