A car that looks good and drives well; the C-Class by Mercedes-Benz is built to perform and satisfy. It will easily handle the daily commute and cross-country runs for meet-ups just as well as sprints across the city.
One of the most versatile luxury cars around, the C-Class is available as a coupé, a saloon, an estate and a cabriolet. Select the body style that best suits your needs and tastes, and be sure to choose the one that you’ll be proudest to own.
All body types share the same elegant frame with flowing lines and a long sloping bonnet. The grille immediately catches the eye with its central Mercedes-Benz emblem, silver-painted louvres and optional chrome pins. Positioned close to the ground, it has an executive look and standing at over 4.5m in length, it has a strong on-road presence. In all but the two entry level trims, there are LED High Performance headlights that give you excellent vision at night. LED daytime running lights in these trims ensure you won’t be missed.
Just like the exterior, the interior is designed with professionalism and sophistication in mind. Your comfort is taken very seriously as it’s built to tackle both long and short drives. A Seat Comfort package is included on all but the two high-end trims which gives you lumbar support and cushion depth adjustment. There’s a choice of different leathers depending on the trim level you go for. From the Sport trim upwards, you get interior lighting for a relaxing glow when travelling a long way home at night. A multifunction steering wheel places the entertainment controls under your fingertips. In the centre of the dashboard sits a touchscreen that’s in your line of sight, so it’s easy to see what’s happening with the driver assistant tools and entertainment. No matter what body type you select, you’ll be promised space in both the front and the rear seats with a wheelbase stretching to almost three metres.
10 engines are on offer, with six diesels and four petrol units to choose from, two of which are for the AMG trims only. Aside from the AMG exclusive engines, the C 250 d 4MATIC and C 300 h pack the most power, boasting 500Nm of torque at 1,600rpm. Top speeds reach 153mph with 0-60mph times at less than seven seconds.
Different forms of Agility Control across the trim levels keeps the drive smooth. You can change the feel of the drive to match the different roads and your mood using the Driving Mode selector. If you choose an automatic, there are gear shift paddles on the steering wheel that you can use to get a faster acceleration time.Adaptive Brake Assist and ABS help you to safely come to a stopwhen you’re travelling fast. The Active Bonnet detects pedestrian
hazards and automatically raises the front end to prevent a collision. Collision Prevent Assist is one of the most sophisticated safety features; it lets you know if you are getting too close to cars in front and increases braking power.
In all but the entry level SE trim, the C-Class comes with Active Parking Assist that perfectly steers you into parking spots with minimal effort required. If you prefer to manoeuvre the car yourself, you can use the reversing camera to help judge the space.
Along with the usual entertainment systems you expect, there’s integrated Garmin® MAP PILOT navigation available on most trim levels. An optional COMAND Online system gives you live traffic information, speed limit warnings and internet access when parked.
