Welcome to a new, even more digital and efficient world, and welcome home: the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class stands for both, and in all respects creates a future-proof comfort zone in a time of worldwide transformation. As the first classic model series from Mercedes-Benz, the new C-Class is electrified throughout thanks to plug-in hybrids and mild hybrids with 48-volt technology and integrated starter-generator.
The new Mercedes-Benz C-Class already looks to be in motion at a standstill with its dynamic proportions, thanks to the combination of short front overhang, long wheelbase and rear overhang. The sporty bonnet with power domes accentuates this urge of forward motion. The windscreen and passenger cell have been moved to the rear for these classic proportions known in the industry as "cab-backward design". The preceding model was already a great step forward in terms of a high-value appeal in the interior, and the new C-Class goes even further with respect to modern luxury. The interior adopts highlights from the new S-Class, adding a sporty touch.
A range of four-cylinder engines will be available at the launch of the new Mercedes C-Class, in petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid guises. All cars get a nine-speed automatic gearbox as standard, too.
The petrol range kicks off the 1.5-litre 170hp C180, with the 204hp C200 using a more powerful version of the same engine. The most powerful petrol, at least until the AMG models arrive, is the 258hp C300. Mercedes Prices expected to start around £38k.
