On all C-Class models, wedge-shaped styling features a steep rake to the windshield and back window. A familiar Mercedes grille with a three-pointed star insignia atop the sculpted hood sits up front. Headlights and turn signals are integrated into elliptical shapes, and triangular taillights are installed. Gently sloping C-pillars and aggressively slanted D-pillars extend the C240 and C320 wagons roofline to the liftgate, which has a discreetly integrated spoiler at its top.

At 178.3 inches long overall, the C-Class sedan is 2 inches longer than the comparable BMW 3 Series. The C32 AMG features 17-inch tires, and regular C-Class sedans feature 16-inchers. Built on a 106.9-inch wheelbase, the sport wagons basic dimensions are identical to those of the C-Class sedan, and they also feature standard even-spoke 16-inch alloy wheels.
