While the 2017 C-Class will satisfy any Fishkill thrill seeker, it also happens to be one of the safest sedans on the road thanks to standard safety features like a driver drowsiness alert and front collision warning system with automatic braking. The TLX is also available with high-tech safety features, but you will have to pay extra to get more than a basic level of protection.



If you want a vehicle that feels ultra-premium, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class lineup delivers. It comes standard with features like a automatic wiper-blades, a 10-way power front seats, and an infotainment system enhanced with a dial controller for easier interface.
