2011 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
Average Selling Price: $32,564
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class remains the most accessible of the brand's models sold in the United States. Completely redesigned in 2008, the fourth-generation C-Class continues to deliver the expected levels of advanced engineering, design and safety features that keep it highly competitive within the entry luxury segment. With the price of a three year old used C Class so close to new, we'd have to recommend buying new.
