This new version will be more powerful than it predecessor, featuring a newly-developed 2.0-litre engine that will give drivers 255 hp, and will come equipped with a second-generation integrated starter-generator (ISG) that will provide an additional 20 hp and 147 lb-ft more of torque. A tuned 9G-TRONIC transmission will provide drivers with smoother gearshifts and stronger acceleration.
The exterior is updated as well, with an accentuated ‘catwalk’ line that will stretch the entire length of this C-Class Sedan, and which will highlight the 18- to 19-inch wheels. The classic grille that comes with the C-Class will feature a central star, with the Spot Package to feature a diamond grille with a star designed in chrome. Three new paint finishes – spectral blue, high-tech silver and opalite white – have been added to the colour range.
The interior of the new C-Class will come with a dashboard that will be divided into an upper and lower section, with both the dashboards and the central display tilted towards the driver. A freestanding high-resolution LCD screen will be available in 10.25-inch or a 12.3-inch version. The seats of the new C-Class will come with a special design that uses layers and enveloping surfaces to create the visual impression of lightness. The head restraints are redesigned and are attached to the backrest with a sealed piece of trim under which the adjustment mechanism is located.
A man-made leather dashboard that features Nappa-look beltlines is also available for the C-Class when selected with Sport Package.
Like the S-Class, this new C-Class will come with the automaker’s second generation Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) system for the vehicle’s infotainment systems and an improved voice assistant, and will also come with over-the-air updates as well.
