2011 Mercedes Benz C class, Some Minor Differences From 2010…


This is the first 2011 Mercedes-Benz C300 Sport that I’ve seen. It arrived at Feldmann Imports this morning. Believe it or not, we never really know how exactly how the new models are going to be different between model years until the first new ones begin to arrive. There are very few changes to the C300 for 2011, as it was a brand new car in 2008 with a few changes for 2009 and a few more changes for 2010.
Exterior Changes
The only exterior change I could find was the addition of standard LED running lamps on the lower front spoiler of the Sport model. They replace the fog lamps that used to be there, keeping in line with the LED running lamps you get in the P2 package of the E class and standard on the S class. 

Only visible exterior change: LED running lamps on the C300 Sport

Packages
The P1 Package is the only option package available on the C300 for the 2011 model year. They’ve done away with the P2 Package all together. The P1 Package has been enhanced to include Split Folding Rear Seats and a Rear Window Sunshade. The Bi-Xenon Headlamps that used to be part of the P2 Package are now a stand alone option, along with the headlamp washers, and LED tail lamps called the “Lighting Package” as are available on some of our other models.  

Price
The C class remains a solid value for the 2011 model year. The base price of the C300 4matic Sport only went up $390 from $37,100 to $37,490. The P1 Package actually went DOWN in price! From $2,300 in 2010 to $1,999 for the 2011 model year, and you get more options in the 2011 model P1 package. See the portions of the window stickers / option lists for the different P1 packages from the different years below.

We’ve still got more than twenty 2010 model year C300 Sports in stock at the moment, the 2011s are beginning to arrive as well. Give me a call today if you want to talk about the last of the 2010 models or one of the 2011s.
