The all-new Mercedes C-Class
Mercedes ‘at its best’
The new Mercedes C Class sets new standards in the premium mid-range class. This new model boasts excellent aerodynamics and new economical engines together with a high class interior and a host of technical innovations.
"Mercedes at its best that’s the new C-Class, which sets new standards for the mid-range segment on many fronts," says Prof. Dr Thomas Weber, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG responsible for Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development. "It is characterised by an emotional yet clear design which is continued in the high-quality and modern interior. Its efficient and high-performance engineering provides the basis for a high standard of driving enjoyment."
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."
Three engine variants are available at the market launch; a diesel in the guise of the C 220 BlueTEC and the two petrol models, C 180 and C 200. Soon after launch a new small diesel engine will be available plus an advanced version of the proven 2.2 litre four-cylinder diesel engine will also become available in several output variants.
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.
There is plenty of space for the driver and front passenger inside the new C- Class and the interior design demonstrates a new approach by Mercedes Benz. An all new centre console features flowing lines, five round air vents lend the dashboard a sporty touch. With their metallic cool-touch effect, they create a fascinating, tangible contrast to the warm look of the other materials such as the wood in the centre console or the leather on the dashboard. All switches feature a high-quality, three-dimensional design befitting a luxury vehicle and benefit from a clear layout. Specification and pricing is still yet to be confirmed.
