To date, the C-Class has positioned itself as the best-selling Mercedes-Benz model. Since 1982, more than 10.5 million of these vehicles have been delivered in this category.
Just like de German company’s firs classic model series, the new C-Class achieves and electric range of approximately 100 kilometers as a plug-in hybrid. This also sets high standards regarding sustainability by reducing the carbon footprint.
Both Saloon and Estate models will be available together, to order from March 30th, and will arrive in showrooms in the summer of this year.
In terms of interior design, the new C-Class goes beyond modern luxury by adding a sporty touch. The dashboard is divided into an upper and lower wing-shaped section with new air vents reminiscent of aircraft engine nacelles. This dashboard and the central display are slightly angled towards the driver.
The move towards digitalization is evident thanks to the high-quality touchscreen through which the vehicle’s functions can be controlled.
As for the exterior design, when viewed from the side, the elaborately sculpted surfaces create unique light effects. In the Estate model, the progressive roof line in combination with the sloping rear window adds a sporty touch without compromising functionality. The rear has a classic structure typical of a Mercedes-Benz sedan.
Regarding the range of colors, three new paint finishes have been added: Spectral Blue, High-Tech Silver and Opalite White.
