Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz SLC 300.

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the Mercedes-Benz SLC 300 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class offers greater seating capacity than the Mercedes-Benz SLC 300, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.
