How Affordable can this Car be?
An update by USA Today in March of 2014 mentioned that Mercedes Benz is aiming its sights at youngsters by making it budget-friendly in the near future. At the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, the company unveiled its 2015 C-Class, which will be an entry-level vehicle. The car looks young, exciting, and perfect for the next generation. Despite the company’s focus on budget, the lesser expensive C300 will have a starting price of around $38,000! That’s too high a price for many people to afford.
