The Mercedes-Benz C class sedan has been a stalwart of the luxury car sector, providing drivers with comfort and performance for years now. However, as Mercedes updates its offerings and redesigns its brand, this standby will be seeing some changes. While the newest model isn’t a complete refresh, it does get some upgrades, including technology being passed down from higher-end lines within Mercedes’ portfolio of offerings. Additionally, while the powertrain is the same tried-and-true system we’ve seen under the hood for a while, updates to the engine provide a boost to horsepower. Look for more changes to come.
- The turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four now produces 255 horsepower, up from 241.
- Mercedes-Benz also upped the C’s tech game; it now has a new key fob, a redesigned engine-start button, standard smartphone integration, and available Intelligent Drive assist system.
- Completely new models not named G-class will feature smooth, creaseless bodies created to be, Mercedes says, beautiful, pure forms.
