How else do they compare?

There are plenty of highlights worth pointing out for both the C-Class and the CLS. The C 300, the entry-level sedan for the C-Class lineup, now has more horsepower than the 2018 model. It also comes with the availability of a 12.3-inch Digital Instrument Cluster. While the C 300 sedan obviously isn’t a coupe like the CLS, the C-Class also comes in coupe options as well with the C 300 Coupe, AMG® C 43 Coupe, AMG® C 63 Coupe, and the AMG® C 63 S Coupe.

The CLS, meanwhile, is only available as a coupe. An interesting aspect of the CLS 450 Coupe is that it has four doors, an uncommon characteristic for coupes due to their sloping roofline which usually makes it hard to add an extra set of doors behind the driver and passenger side. While more expensive than its counterpart, the CLS will offer more power under the hood as well as some interior luxury features like active multicontour front seats with massage, 64-color ambient lighting system, ENERGIZING® Comfort, and much more.
