Comfort in the 2018 Mercedes-Benz C 300

When it comes to comfort, both brands bring it to the table. However, if you’re looking for that little something extra, there’s a good chance the C 300 is right for you. All luxury cars will be better than your average sedan, but when you look harder you’ll see the separation between these two. Both vehicles have heated front seats as you’d expect, but only the C 300 has cooled front seats, which will really come in handy on hot summer days. In addition, standard C 300 features such as front power headrest, front power memory seats, a vehicle location system, and telematics are not available in the A4.
