The 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class configurator is now live, meaning you can spec out the redesigned C-Class sedan just the way you like it. Starting at $41,325 (including destination) for the C300 4Matic, the sedan costs $1000 more than the outgoing model, which isn't that much of an increase considering the extra dose of luxury the C-Class received for the new model year.

Powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four producing 241 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque, the C300 4Matic can be yours for $41,325, but that's only if you don't upgrade the sedan with a variety of enticing options, such as the $1515 designo Diamond White Metallic paint color and the $2175 Sport Package that outfits the C300 with things like AMG body styling, sport-tuned suspension, race seats, and perforated front brakes with painted calipers. For those looking for more subtle upgrades, the Luxury package adds wood trim, a comfort-tuned suspension, and MB-Tex on the upper dash for $650.

Full LED headlights and taillights, adaptive high beam assist, and active curve illumination are part of an $800 Lighting Package, while a panorama sunroof commands another $1480. Wanting the real-deal leather upholstery and Air Balance Package (with the cabin fragrance system) will cost you $2300 and $350, respectively. You won't find a standard rearview camera because it comes bundled in a $2690 Multimedia package that also includes the 8.4-inch display screen, voice control, and navigation, though it's also available as a standalone option for $460. Meanwhile, the head-up display costs $990. After adding everything mentioned above except for the Luxury Package, we spec'd our C300 to cost $55,975.

If 241 horses doesn't sound like enough, the C400 4Matic comes packing a potent 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6 good for 329 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque and standard sport-tuned suspension. Starting at $49,515, we spec'd our C400 4Matic out with a $720 metallic paint color, $800 lighting package, $1480 panoramic sunroof, and $2300 interior package that includes leather seats with ventilated front seats, illuminated door sills, and multicolor LED ambient lighting. For good measure, we also added the $350 air balance package. After all was said and done, our C400 Matic costs $58,425.

Both models come standard with a seven-speed automatic with shift paddles, start-stop system, all-wheel drive, Bluetooth connectivity, touchpad controller, and adaptive braking. The 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class should be arriving in dealerships shortly, but you can get a head start and spec yours out beforehand by visiting the automaker's website to configure your C-Class.
