2015 C300 Sport
Mine is a 2015 Sport. It's definitely a stiff car & I've had it tripod on me going up a steep driveway at an angle.
Swapping to non run-flats made a significant improvement in comfort at the same PSI.

On smooth roads, it's very comfortable, but on broken pavement & lesser maintained roads, it definitely lets you know it's got the sport suspension.

Not sure if the W205 Airmatic is a big difference, never driven one with it.

Yeah I built mine specifically to get Air based on my test drives of cars with both the sport and base suspensions, and difference wheel sizes. It definitely feels more like a Mercedes on the air suspension in Comfort mode.

2016 C 300 4matic Lunar blue
If you had transitioned from a GLA250, you would be a lot more appreciative of the C300.

buying a used c450 if your budget allows for it will always be a better deal. regardless of upkeep. if you buy a 2018 c300 depreciation will be a much larger loss of money than the upkeep of a used c450. just consider all of these factors. dont expect a c300 to be a c450. with that being said, the c300 is a great car for what it is and should not be compared to its amg counterpart because it'll never measure up as it is not meant to.

GLS450 and C300

massively disappointed for reasons I will post in another thread. The short answer is that the make and finish are cheap with many corners cut - not up to par for a vehicle with MSRP $46k. The only thing that didnít disappoint is the handling and acceleration. To be fair I love my GLS450 so it is really the cheapness of the low end C300 model that I despise.
