The 2014, 2013 & 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class model years are currently the best values.

On average, expect to pay only 34% of the original cost with 58% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2014 C-Class. That gives it a Net Used Value® score of 24.08 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2013 & 2015 C-Class model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.
