3 Easy Ways To Differentiate Between Mercedes Benz C300 And C250



From mere looking at Mercedes Benz C300 and C250, someone who’s not a car enthusiast and doesn’t know much about cars may not be able to tell the two apart. You really have to get a third eye to know that these two cars are not the same. Aside from the C300 and C250 inscribed at the rear of these Benz cars, there are other ways to know which one is which.

Below are some of the easiest ways to differentiate between Mercedes Benz C300 and C250

1. Drivetrain

C250 comes with only rear-wheel-drive and there is no 4Matic option.

C300 comes with both rear-wheel-drive and then with the 4Matic option.

2. Engine capacity

The C250 comes with a 1.8-liter turbocharged engine that gives out 201 horsepower. Let me chip this in: Most reviews I have gone through suggest you shouldn’t worry much about turb0-lag.

The C300 comes with a 3-liter V6 engine that makes 228 horsepower.
