Mercedes announces C-Class pricing & specs
Available with a choice of two engines and three model lines, prices for the new C-Class range start from £26,855 OTR.
At launch, the range will offer a choice of the C 200 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and the C 220 BlueTEC 2.1-litre four-cylinder diesel engine, each available with a choice of six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic gearboxes and offering 123g/km and 103g/km respectively.
A further three engine variants – the C 200 BlueTEC, C 250 BlueTEC and C 300 BlueTEC HYBRID – will follow during the course of the year.
Three trim levels are offered: SE, Sport and the AMG Line. Standard kit includes an advanced and intuitive touchpad to control the entertainment functions via the centrally mounted seven-inch colour display. There’s also Artico upholstery along with two-zone air conditioning and a media interface located in the central storage between the front seats.
Other features include a reversing camera, rain sensing wipers, Attention Assist, Speedtronic cruise control, heated windscreen wiper washers, a tyre pressure monitoring system and Collision Prevention Assist Plus.
The new model also comes with the Agility Select system, which allows the driver to choose between Comfort, Eco, Sport, Sport+ and Individual driving modes (the latter allowing a bespoke setup). There’s also an optional AIRMATIC air suspension system.
Meanwhile, the Sport model adds 17-inch alloy wheels (up from 16-inch on the SE), LED headlights, lowered comfort suspension, chrome exterior trim and Garmin Map Pilot Navigation.
And the AMG Line adds 18-inch AMG wheels, AMG bodystyling and steering wheel, sports suspension and an Artico finish to the upper dashboard.
