2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs 2021 Lexus IS

Serving Milwaukee, WI

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the 2021 Lexus IS are premium compact sedans that frequently garner car shoppers’ full attention in the Milwaukee North area. While these models are both available with numerous higher-level trims, they are priced in the same ballpark at the entry-level. With this in mind, how do their entry-level trims compare in the areas that you are most interested in?


Both of these four-door cars have 18-inch wheels and LED headlights, a power release function for the trunk, and LED lighting. The 2021 C-Class sedan sits low to the ground, and this sporty touch is combined with long personality lines across the side doors that flow toward each other. This generates a sense of powerful motion. On the other hand, the Lexus IS has a single definition line on the sides that starts along the rocker panels before trending above the rear fender.


These five-seat sedans both have leatherette material and unique design elements throughout their first and second rows. They share features like USB ports, a digital display screen, smart device connectivity, a superior sound system, a navigation system, and more. The C-Class also has standard features like an auto-dimming rear mirror, two additional USB ports, and dual auxiliary visors. These are not available in the Lexus IS for 2021.


The primary engine in the C-Class is an I-4 engine that delivers 255 horsepower. The Lexus IS’s standard V6 engine edges slightly higher with its production of 260 horsepower. However, the C-Class’s engine has a substantially higher torque rating and better fuel economy ratings.
