It doesn't scream "look at me." It says "let's drive."
It's sleeker than ever, yet more elegant. More substantial in size, space and safety, yet lighter and more nimble. From the Star in its grille to the sculpture of its taillamps, it's a shape that says there's a new benchmark for luxury sport sedans. And in both luxury and sportiness, the experience upholds everything its style promises.
It goes with the flow. And flows with the go.
Its wide, cascading console is more than an aesthetic triumph. It literally flows an unimaginable breadth of information, entertainment and enjoyment to you. It's also evidence that new cabin grew roomier by adding actual space, not by visual trickery. Richly modern finishes envelop innovative comforts, to rejuvenate all of your senses.
It makes you the center of attention.
From behind the wheel, every control is ideally placed to please your inner enthusiast. Crisp gauges and displays are ideally aligned for a quick read through the thick 3-spoke steering wheel. And whether changing gears or adjusting your driving soundtrack, your hands need not stop enjoying their grip on its Nappa leather-wrapped rim.
More haste, less waste. More torque, less pork.
There's a new family of overachievers under the C-Class hood. A new 241-hp turbo-4 in the C300 boosts power and torque by 20%. And the new 329-hp biturbo V-6 in the C400 outruns many V-8s. And yet both offer higher mpg and lower emissions, thanks to advances like high-pressure Direct Injection, rapid-multispark ignition, and ultralow friction.
A new feeling of agility. And a new air of authority.
A precise 4-wheel multilink suspension teams with AGILITY CONTROL®, an innovation that instantly firms up in corners while maintaining silky comfort. Sport or Comfort tuning is also available. And for the first time, the C-Class can be equipped with AIRMATIC, an advanced adaptive suspension that turns pressurized air into poised performance.
Reassuring on slick roads. Rewarding on curvy ones.
Standard on the C400 and a C300 Sedan option, 4MATIC® all-wheel drive continually sends the engine´s torque to the wheels that can put it to the best use. In wet or wintry weather, 4MATIC elevates driving confidence. It's also lightweight, nimble and exceptionally fuel-efficient, to enhance handling, performance and fun even in dry corners.
No system, regardless of how advanced, can overcome the laws of physics or correct careless driving. Please always wear your seat belt. Performance is limited by available traction, which snow, ice and other conditions can affect. Always drive carefully, consistent with conditions. Best performance in snow is obtained with winter tires.
Five driving modes. For all your driving moods.
With the touch of one button, the new AGILITY SELECT lets you dial in numerous facets of the car's driving character to your liking. ECO, Comfort, Sport and Sport+ modes vary the shift points, throttle mapping, steering feel and ECO Start/Stop system. You can even set up an Individual mode with full manual shifting via the standard paddles.
Listens to your fingers. Speaks to your senses.
An intuitive new touchpad and slim screen deliver numerous entertainment, navigation and vehicle options via multi-finger gestures and animated displays. An optional Head-Up Display puts valuable information closer to your line of sight. Clever FrontBass® technology teams with available Burmester® surround sound to keep your ears excited, too.
Protective by nature. Predictive by innovation.
For decades, Mercedes-Benz has predicted the safety standards of the future. The new C-Class can literally look ahead, and 360 degrees around, to spot hazards in your path. A team of standard and optional systems can alert the driver, assist in braking, and even respond autonomously to help avoid collisions with other vehicles and pedestrians.
Watches the driver ahead. And the one behind the wheel.
Standard COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS uses radar to continually monitor traffic ahead. If it detects that you're approaching a slower vehicle too quickly, it alerts you to brake. It can even start braking for you, to help lessen a possible collision. ATTENTION ASSIST® keeps its "eyes" on you, alerting you if it senses you're getting drowsy.
COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST may not be sufficient to avoid an accident. It does not react to certain stationary objects, nor recognize or predict the curvature and/or lane layout of the road or every movement of vehicles ahead. It is the driver´s responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for the system´s alerts before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely.
Driving while drowsy or distracted is dangerous and must be avoided. ATTENTION ASSIST may be insufficient to alert a fatigued or distracted driver of lane drift and cannot be relied on to avoid an accident or serious injury.
