2017 BMW 430i Gray


The 2017 Mercedes-Benz C 300 is in a class of its own, with rivals like the 2017 BMW 430i struggling to keep pace. With more power beneath the hood and greater comfort within the cabin, the Mercedes-Benz C 300 is an unrivaled example of automotive luxury, and it’s available now from Mercedes-Benz of Boerne.

Engine Options

It’s hard to truly place the 2017 BMW 430i in the same league as the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C 300 after you compare their lineup of available engines.

The BMW offers:

2.0L Four-Cylinder: Makes up to 248 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque

3.0L V6: Makes up to 320 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz C 300 provides more engine options and significantly improves upon power:

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

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

4.0L Turbocharged V8: Makes up to 503 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque


It’s can be easy to disguise poor engineering by delivering more power, but that’s certainly not the situation with the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C 300 as it delivers on both fronts. Its cutting-edge performance features include:

Standard Torque Vectoring Brake: This detects understeer, then adjusts your ride with targeted rear-wheel braking for enhanced control.

AGILITY CONTROL®: This feature adjusts individual shock absorbers based on differing road conditions, so handling feedback and comfort remain flawless.

AIRMATIC® Suspension: Precise sensors and pressurized air spring-struts react to road surfaces for advanced control with this feature.

Unfortunately, features such as these aren’t available with the 2017 BMW 430i.

Even more impressive is the lineup of driver-assistance safety technologies the Mercedes-Benz C 300 offers, which covers:
