C 300

2017 Cadillac ATS Blue


The 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class has set the standard for luxury sedans, with rivals like the 2017 Cadillac ATS struggling to meet the same expectations. Whether you’re interested in world-class performance, luxurious interior appointments, or first-rate safety, you’re likely to gravitate away from the 2017 Cadillac ATS and towards the latest Mercedes-Benz C 300.


The 2017 Mercedes-Benz C 300 adopts a overachieving approach to power, with three sensational engine options including:

  • 2.0L Four-Cylinder: Makes up to 241 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque.

  • 3.0L V6: Makes up to 362 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque.

  • 4.0L V8: Makes up to 503 hp and 516 lb-ft.

The 2017 Cadillac ATS fails to adhere to the same uncompromising attitude, with only two engines available:

  • 2.0L Four Cylinder: Makes up to 272 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque.

  • 3.6L V6: Makes up to 335 hp and 285 lb-ft of torque.


The power of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C 300 speaks for itself, and it does so loudly. But it isn’t the only performance edge it holds over the 2017 Cadillac ATS, with further standard and available features including:


  • Torque Vectoring Brake

  • Advanced AIRMATIC® Suspension

Such features truly represent the cutting-edge of sport sedan design, and they let the new Mercedes-Benz C 300 carve through corners and soak up bumps with refinement and control unknown to those behind the wheel of a 2017 Cadillac ATS.


The 2017 Cadillac ATS lacks the innate luxury of the new C-Class. Where the former grants a six-way power driver’s seat, the latter delivers exceptional comfort through a 14-way power driver’s seat with power lumbar support and memory.

Even more compelling is the distance between safety technologies, with only the Mercedes-Benz C 300 providing:

  • ATTENTION ASSIST® to monitor behavior and alert you to weariness.

  • Crosswind Assist to cope with strong winds striking from either side.

  • PRESAFE® to detect collision and pre-activate certain safety systems.
