The new Mercedes C-Class has arrived and prices and specifications have been announced. The new C-Class range starts from £26,885 and first customer deliveries will be in June.
There is a choice of two engines a 1991cc four cylinder petrol and a 2143cc four cylinder diesel plus three model lines; SE, Sport and the AMG Line. Among the equipment highlights, the Sport model adds 17-inch alloy wheels (up from 16-inch on the SE), LED headlights, lowered comfort suspension, chrome exterior trim and Garmin® Map Pilot Navigation. The AMG Line adds 18-inch AMG wheels, AMG bodystyling and steering wheel, sports suspension and an Artico finish to the upper dashboard. A further three engine variants, the C 200 BlueTEC, C 250 BlueTEC and C 300 BlueTEC HYBRID will follow during the course of the year.
Standard equipment fitted to every new Mercedes C-Class will include an advanced and intuitive touchpad to control the entertainment functions via the centrally-mounted seven-inch colour display. Enhancing comfort, Artico upholstery will be fitted as standard along with two-zone air conditioning and a media interface fitted as standard include a reversing camera, rain sensing wipers, Attention Assist, Speedtronic cruise control, heated windscreen wiper washers, a tyre pressure monitoring system and Collision Prevention Assist Plus.
The new Mercedes C-Class comes with H7 halogen headlamps as standard. In addition to the standard-fit headlamps, two energy-saving LED variants are available; a static system and a dynamic version with "LED Intelligent Light System". The characteristic night design lends the new C-Class its very own distinctive look in the dark, too. The rear lamp and brake light in the tail lights feature LED technology in all headlamp versions.
Ola Källenius, Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing Mercedes-Benz Cars, said "the new C-Class embodies Mercedes-Benz's claim "The best or nothing" in uncompromising style. This is immediately apparent when encountering our new Saloon for the first time, as it creates the impression that one is sitting in a higher class of automobile. I am sure that our customers will be delighted by the high-class appeal and agility of the new C-Class.”
Customers wishing to tailor their car to their specific requirements can select from a series of option packs. On the SE this includes the Executive Pack (£995) which features Garmin® Map Pilot navigation, heated front seats and split folding rear seats.
