C300 sport by far! And I don't even like the Benz badge...the C300 is just a superior car.

since I own a 2006 tsx-which I love-I choose the tsx-excellent car after owning it 14 months (bought new) and almost 35,000 miles. It is not a race car but has more than enough power for me and less expensive than the c300. This is my opinion so I would suggest test driving both cars and get the one you like and can afford..

Before we start I am Not biased towards either car. I sell Lexus for a living & I am a driving enthusiast. The TSX is a MUCH sportier car, It Is lighter , more nimble, offers more feedback through the tires and wheels and is much flatter overall. The car is starting to look a bit dated and is long in the tooth needing a new model .The C300 Is a Great LOOKING car in my opinion, Even the standard cabin with the "TEX" seats (Leather is not standard) Unfortunately the throttle is jumpy, the car suffers from tremendous body roll , the steering has a vague on center feel and the car feels like its on marbles. Also with the standard motor it cant get out of its own way. It does have the benefit of All Wheel Drive. The C350 adresses many of these problems and Its hard to believe the C63 with Its Obsene preformace shares even a single componant with the C300 Sport. Its Jekyl & Hyde. If I needed a sports car and was worried about handeling and Fun I'd pick the TSX... If I was Purchasing a sedan for my daily commute I'd pick the Benz

I would choose the TSX. I have driven both. The C300 is boring to drive. It is too quiet and smooth. It is teh kind of car that makes you fall asleep at the wheel. The Acura feels much faster and is much more fun to drive. I also prefer the looks inside and out of the Acura. The Acura also handles better and is much more reliable. Acura is probably the most reliable luxury car in the world. It is also cheaper to maintain and gets better gas mileage. The C300 feels like a big car to drive.

I love a Mercedes and I drive an Acura. But I'd choose the TSX cause in the long run it will cost less for routine maintenance. If you are buying used you'll get a better deal on a TSX cause there are many more out there. The c300 is new and there aren't many used ones out there so the prices will be high.But if money is no problem - get the Benz.
