The new Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Sheer attraction

The all-new C-Class heralds a new chapter in the C-Class success story and sets new standards in the premium medium-luxury segment. Thanks to an intelligent lightweight-design concept boasting weight savings of up to 100 kilograms, excellent aerodynamics and new economical engines, the C-Class establishes new efficiency benchmarks in its segment. A host of new assistance systems offers safety of the highest standard, while a new optional air-sprung suspension provides for exemplary ride and driving comfort as well as nimble and agile handling. In terms of appearance the new C-Class adopts a progressive approach with its clear yet emotional design and its high-class interior. Many other innovations and equipment features underscore the sedan's energising comfort and refined sportiness. The high-class appeal of the new C-Class is an "upgrade to a higher class of vehicle".
"The C-Class is a best seller that has always been a trendsetter in the mid-size luxury segment. This is also true for the new C-Class as it comes with qualities usually reserved for higher-class vehicles - environmentally responsible, technologically advanced and high levels of comfort and driving enjoyment," says Florian Seidler, Vice President, Mercedes-Benz Cars South Africa.
With a sensuous and clear design and a host of technical innovations, the new C-Class offers a comprehensive scope of standard equipment and exemplary emissions and fuel consumption figures. This all adds up to substantial added value and long-term fuel savings.
"Our new C-Class embodies what we understand modern automotive luxury to be and showcases automotive passion by way of a contemporary design idiom. We are confident that our new C-Class will be a huge success," adds Seidler.
The C-Class has grown to take account of people's increasing average height. With an 80-millimetre increase in the wheelbase (2840 millimetres) compared with the previous model, the vehicle is 95 millimetres longer (4686 milli¬metres) and 40 millimetres wider (1810 millimetres). The result is a more spacious interior. At 480 litres the new C-Class also surpasses its predecessor in terms of boot capacity (in accordance with ISO 3832).
