Whether you’re looking for a daily commuter or a source of pride and joy, shopping for a luxury car is always exciting. There are so many options available out there, so it may seem a bit overwhelming at first. We’ve made an effort to make the process easier for you as we compare to similar models here in the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C 300 and 2019 Dodge Challenger. These two are totally different, so check out the specs and features below!
Performance is usually one of the first things drivers will consider when shopping for a new sports car, and both of these models deliver in that area. While the Challenger outweighs the C 300 in terms of horsepower, the C 300 has more torque and also boasts an extra transmission speed. German engineering is also highly sought after, which gives the C 300 another boost.

Another comparison worth noting is that the Challenger isn’t branded as a luxury sedan, while the C 300 is. This might not seem like a huge deal, but the C 300 has a lot to live up to simply by boasting the Mercedes-Benz nameplate. Inside you’ll find a wealth of features not found in any trim level of the Challenger. One of the highlights is the available Head-Up Display, which puts all the important driver information right there above the dashboard so you won’t have to move your eyes to keep them on the road and on the display at the same time. An available Wi-Fi hotspot makes it easy to stay connected to the internet and access all your favorite apps without using data, and in the middle of anywhere.
Another highlight of the C 300 not found in the Challenger is Car-to-X Communication. This feature will notify drivers of any upcoming roadblocks such as traffic jams or road construction while offering an alternative route. This will help you beat the crowd getting around a major obstacle on the road. Other features found in the base model of the C-Class include Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, FrontBass® premium audio, wireless smartphone charger, rearview camera, and much more.
The Challenger might put up a bit of a challenge when it comes to performance, but after that, it’s all about the C 300 with the assortment of interior comfort and technology features. Check out the C 300 here at Mercedes-Benz of Gilbert for a firsthand look!
