The existence of gigantic land-barge type luxury cars from the 1960s and 1970s is proof that for many decades, we believed a car couldn’t be both luxurious and performance-oriented. With some of the fastest cars on the market also being luxury cars, the times have clearly changed. The small luxury segment, in fact, is considered one of the best performance segments due to the agility and speed smaller sedans/coupes/cabriolets can achieve when compared to their mid- and full-size lineup mates.
For Mercedes-Benz, this push has made the C-Class an industry benchmark for both luxurious and refined interiors and heart-racing performance under the hood. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class features a range of performance options that will get you from point A to point B fast and with a smile on your face. Interior amenities make the drive even better. Up against the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class today is the 2019 Acura TLX. Let’s see how they compare.
