Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class?

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is a luxury car available in coupe or sedan body styles. It competes with the Audi A4, Infiniti G37, Lexus IS, BMW 3 Series and Cadillac ATS. It's available in Base, Luxury and Sport trim levels, as well as the ultimate-performance C63 AMG configuration.

What's New on the 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class?

For 2014, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class includes standard split, folding rear seats; new black accents on the front grille; and standard 18-inch wheels on the C350 models. The C63 AMG has a new "Edition 507" options package that increases total power output to 507 horsepower. An aluminum engine hood, black body addenda, unique 19-inch wheels, Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel, trim-specific leather upholstery and "Edition 507" badging are added as well.

How Does the 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Compare to Other Luxury Cars?

The C350 trim doesn't have as much torque as comparable BMW 335i, Lexus IS 350 or Audi S4 models. The sluggish C250 model was slowest among sports sedan competitors, taking 8.2 seconds to reach 60 mph. The interior is more cramped than its competitors, with all others offering more overall passenger room.

What Features in the 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Are Most Important?

The 2014 C250 sedan comes with a 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 201 horsepower. Upgrading to the C300 model adds 4Matic all-wheel drive and a 248-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 engine. The C350 includes a 3.5-liter V-6 with 302 hp. A seven-speed automatic transmission is standard, and coupe versions add steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. At the top of the lineup is the C63 AMG model. It has a 451-hp V-8, wet startup clutch, paddle shifters, wider brake rotors, and specially tuned suspension and steering.

Significant standard features include a tilt/sliding sunroof, LED taillights and running lights, 17-inch wheels, mbrace2 in-car communication service, Bluetooth audio streaming and USB inputs. Available features include a sliding panoramic roof, bi-xenon headlights, 17- or 18-inch AMG wheels, leather seats, front heated seats, contrasting-colored seat belts, three-spoke steering wheel for the Sport trim, four-spoke steering wheel for Luxury models, a backup camera, a premium stereo, a 7-inch LCD screen with navigation and interior trim in the form of black ash, brushed aluminum and matte-finish burl walnut wood.

Standard safety features include active front head restraints, electronic stability control with traction control and antilock brakes with brake assist. Available safety features include backseat side-impact airbags, a driver attention monitor, parking assist, blind spot monitoring and a lane departure warning system.

Should I Buy the 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class?

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is a strong choice if you want a quiet interior with great ride comfort. It also has a large trunk opening, plenty of visibility and an instrument cluster that's easy to understand. However, its cramped interior, soft brakes and limited standard features list make it tough to recommend over other sports sedans. In addition, sluggish acceleration on all models except the C63 AMG limits its performance appeal.

by Cheryl from Worcester, MA on August 31, 2019

Bought this car used with 27k miles. Must have been a lemon because it drove awful, no pep for a 6 cylinder, seats uncomfortable, just no fun to drive. Big disappointment. Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
