With changes to the interior, a longer profile, and other updates, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class hopes to continue its tradition of being the most popular luxury car in Australia. Borrowing a lot from the S-Class, the newly altered C-Class might be able to remain in the top of the class in the luxury automobile market.
Engine and Specifications
The 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine can be found in both the C200 and C250 models of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class lineup. There is little difference to be found in the performance in these engines, other than a slight tweak in the C250 to deliver 155kW and 350Nm compared to 135kW and 300Nm for the C200. For diesel options, there is the C200 Bluetec and the C250 Bluetec. The C Class Coupe and Cabriolet is also available within various engine configurations and specifications.
Mercedes-Benz utilises a transmission system that it refers to as agility select, which lets the driver choose between sport, eco, and comfort modes. Each setting adjusts the weight of the steering and the engine rev. If you choose the optional airmatic suspensions system, the agility select will also make adjustments to the suspensions, which is incredibly beneficial when cruising on country roads or bumpy areas. In fact, the standard suspension is one of the only drawbacks to the road performance of the C-Class. The steering is light and responsive; though, you can tighten it up when you switch the sport agility select mode.
Interior Design and Features
The seating is roomy and comfortable. The entire interior screams elegance and simplicity. The dashboard has a sleek minimal design, which is truly refreshing. In the back, three passengers can sit comfortably; though, with just two passengers in the back they are in for a luxurious ride. There are plenty of safety features in the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, including advanced safety technologies. There are a number of electronic safety features, such as collision prevention and braking assist. Other safety features include nine airbags.
Overview of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class
The advanced infotainment system and a great interior feel make riding in the Mercedes-Benz C-Class a treat for everyone inside, including the driver. The only drawback in performance comes from the standard suspension which struggles occasionally on country roads, but this can be overcome by choosing the airmatic suspension. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class should allow Mercedes-Benz to remain ahead of the pack in the luxury car market.
