Mercedes-Benz C-Class 'The New Generation'

Mercedes-Benz C-Class 'The New Generation'

Highest design standards with dynamic accents

The C-Class Saloon shines – inside and out. Its expressive profile exemplifies dynamism and elegance in inimitable style. The vehicle’s clear lines create a character that loves forward propulsion, and the high-quality material in the interior exemplifies the standards expected of a Mercedes-Benz.

Maximum dynamism with every rev

Innovative transmission technology delivers the power of the individual engines effortlessly to the road. Depending on the engine, perfectly tuned transmissions provide optimum pulling power and high efficiency in every engine speed range.

C-Class Saloon: Chassis


Maximum ride comfort for every situation

Comfortable travel – that is the standard for the C-Class Saloon. The suspension makes a key contribution in this regard. From sporty and taut to comfortable and soft – it’s your choice.

The 4MATIC all-wheel drive distributes power to where it is needed.

The permanent 4MATIC all-wheel drive of the C-Class Estate offers added safety and ride comfort at all times. Power and torque are always distributed as necessary to all four wheels both on rough terrain and on the road. This provides additional traction and directional stability, which in turn improves both agility and handling safety.

  • Assured handling: Via intelligent interplay between ESP®, acceleration skid control and 4ETS Electronic Traction System.
  • Optimum power distribution: Anywhere you go, all-wheel drive distributes force to all 4 wheels to increase traction.

A revolution of inner values

The changes introduced to the C-Class Saloon are not only external. The facelift continues on the inside. A new instrument panel, high-quality surfaces, elegant trim elements and a wide range of new (optional) assistance systems define the high standards of comfort in this latest C-Class Saloon generation.

All you need for great entertainment and accurate navigation

The outstanding audio features of the C-Class deliver added driving pleasure. And high-performance (optional) navigation systems ensure that you won't stray far from your destination.

C-Class assistance systems

Innovative assistance systems (optional) are at hand to help you master the challenges of everyday driving. They reduce stress and boost safety – whether you're driving in the dark, changing lanes, or on the motorway. Leaving you free to focus on the essentials.

The integrated safety concept from Mercedes-Benz

Phase 1: Safe driving

Most accidents start long before the actual collision: with a lapse in concentration, poor visibility or an unanticipated hazard. So we have fitted the C-Class with innovative safety and assistance systems which promote relaxed motoring and help the driver to bring critical situations under control.

Environmentally compatible concepts

BlueEFFICIENCY measures

The C-Class Saloon is equipped with a wealth of diverse BlueEFFICIENCY features and environment-friendly technologies, depending on the engine.
These are, for instance:

  • ECO start/stop function
  • Driver information for energy-saving driving
  • Weight optimisation
  • Intelligent energy management
  • Tyres optimised for rolling resistance
  • Improved aerodynamics
  • Ratio-optimised transmission

Efficiency technologies in the C-Class Saloon

The latest-generation CDI diesel engines will not fail to impress thanks to outstanding performance characteristics and low consumption.
Injection pressure has been increased, operation smoothness enhanced and noise levels optimised, while reduced compression makes for lower emissions.
Through consistent use of comprehensive BlueEFFICIENCY technologies the C 220 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY is a shining example for its class.
Direct injection, increased compression and turbocharging in the new petrol engines generate outstanding torque, output and noise reduction figures.
Innovative engine technologies make it possible to significantly reduce emissions and fuel consumption compared with previous models.
