A twin-scroll turbo, Direct Injection and CAMTRONIC valve adjustment team up for 255 hp. Unleashing all 273 lb-ft of torque from just 1,800 rpm, it also reins in efficiency, with up to 35 highway mpg.
Mercedes-Benz invented the multilink suspension to optimize agility and refinement. Selective damping firms up in corners, stays supple on rough roads. The AMG Line tunes it even sportier.
DYNAMIC SELECT dials in performance with the tap of a console button. Four preset modes vary shift points, throttle, steering and more, from easygoing ECO to sharp Sport+. Or create your own mode.
An ECO Start/Stop system automatically shuts off the engine at stoplights and other idle situations, to save fuel and reduce emissions. As soon as the driver lifts off the brake, the engine instantly restarts, for immediate acceleration response. The ECO Start/Stop system can also be shut off by the driver at any time.
With a greater range of ratios and shorter steps between gears, the 9-speed automatic changes gears more quickly yet more smoothly, too. The lighter, more versatile transmission enhances quiet riding comfort and fuel-efficiency. The electronic selector and shift paddles let you control all gear changes with your hands on the steering wheel. And drivers can vary the shift modes via the innovative DYNAMIC SELECT system.
In any season, on any road, 4MATIC® all-wheel drive adds to your confidence and control. Always engaged and optimizing torque to every wheel, 4MATIC integrates with ESP®, our standard Electronic Stability Program, for maximum effectiveness in corners and slippery conditions. It also incorporates our 4-wheel Electronic Traction System (4-ETS®), which monitors for the first sign of wheel slip and responds to ensure torque is sent to the wheels with the best grip, even if that's only one wheel.
Special calibration of the spring and damping rates places a stronger emphasis on luxury, without sacrificing reassuring control and rewarding feedback. The comfort-tuned setup takes particular advantage of the long wheelbase and high rigidity of the C-Class, elevating its supple smoothness to a pinnacle of poise.
Standard Torque Vectoring Brake technology provides additional control and precision in turns via targeted rear-wheel braking. If the vehicle's Electronic Stability Program (ESP®) detects understeer while cornering, the system applies the brake to the inside rear wheel, temporarily shifting torque distribution in favor of the outside wheel. This can help the vehicle to gently pivot in compensation, putting it on a line of travel, or vector, better suited to the turn.
Standard LED headlamps offer more natural illumination by night, eye-catching design by day. The available LED Intelligent Light System has a look all its own, and adapts for curves and vehicles ahead.
Wheels are as personal as paint colors when showing off your style. Sporty 18-inch alloys are standard. Eight options up to 19 inches include six AMG® designs.
Pump up the muscle with the AMG Line: AMG styling and wheels, a diamond-block grille, plus sport chassis and cabin upgrades. The Night Package adds gloss black details. A new Night Edition takes it even further.
Sleek, sporty and spacious, the C-Class Sedan expresses athletic elegance on every surface. Between the deep front apron and multi-element LED headlamps and the distinctive LED taillamps, its long-hood/short-deck profile conveys the agile performance it delivers. A long wheelbase enhances handling, ride comfort and cabin room, while the extensive use of aluminum makes the body a lightweight on the scales, but a heavyweight in strength.
Bold and muscular yet flowing, the standard sport lower bodywork looks as if was sculpted as much in the gym as in the wind tunnel. Large mesh air intakes underscore the wide, slatted grille with its integrated Star. Chrome details add subtle highlights to the sporty shape.
Offering both front- and rear-seat passengers sweeping skyward views, this fully functional glass sunroof features a front panel that can either tilt up for ventilation or slide over the rear panel for an open-air feeling. An interior power shade lets you adjust the amount of sunlight entering the cabin.
The sensuous cabin is functional and feature-rich. Standard heated front seats, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and 10.25-inch center screen harmonize with five options in hand-finished wood.
Smartphone-like pads let you scroll, swipe and select features and settings with your hands on the wheel. Shift paddles put control at your fingertips. A sporty flat-bottom wheel comes with the AMG Line.
Standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto let you enjoy more from your own smartphone. There are more navigation options: COMAND® with voice control of many cabin features, or a full-featured system that fits on a tiny SD card.
No cable required with wireless charging available. A station in the console lets you refuel your compatible phone's battery as you drive.
With Mercedes me connect, ownership is made easy. Access Remote Start, Lock/Unlock and Vehicle Monitoring, check vehicle status right from your phone, and schedule service any time. You can also connect up to eight devices at a time with in-car WiFi for a low monthly rate.
Intuitive, seat-shaped controls help you find your ideal driving position, including 4-way power lumbar support. The driver seat also includes a power-adjustable thigh support. A memory system for the driver seat recalls three stored positions for the seat plus the power steering column and side mirrors.
At the touch of a button, the tinted glass sunroof tilts up at the rear for ventilation, or slides open for a breezy view of the sky. An express feature fully opens or closes the roof with a single touch, and a manual sliding sunshade helps block out unwanted sunlight.
Separate left and right temperature controls allow the driver and front passenger to enjoy personalized comfort. In addition to fully automatic or manual control of blower speed and airflow distribution, the system includes a dust and pollen filter that helps keep particles as small as 0.0002-inch from entering the cabin.
All new Mercedes-Benz vehicles are protected by our New Vehicle Limited Warranty, covering defects in material or workmanship for 48-months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. For added protection, the Mercedes-Benz Extended Limited Warranty offers continued peace of mind with prolonged coverage tailored to your needs.
Standard Blind Spot Assist helps make driving or even exiting the car safer. Available assists let you change lanes with a tap of your finger. Slow your cruising speed for an offramp. And look out for danger ahead, even if it's coming from behind.
If an air bag deploys, your car can automatically initiate a call to Mercedes-Benz Emergency Services, transmitting your GPS-determined location and helpful vehicle information on your behalf. Trained experts are on call 24/7 to help summon local emergency responders to your location. You can also press the SOS button in the vehicle anytime you need emergency assistance, or see someone else who does. This vital service is provided for as long as you own the vehicle, no matter who's driving.
For a better view of what's behind your vehicle when reversing, a high-resolution camera displays a live view on the central in-dash screen. Steering-dependent active guidelines on the screen can help you back into a parking space, and you can select between wide-angle and even wider 180-degree views.
An advanced system of 8 air bags offers 10-way occupant protection. Standard are dual two-stage front air bags, combined thorax/pelvic bags, and knee air bags for the driver and front passenger, plus side curtain air bags for both seating rows. Side-impact air bags are also standard for each outboard rear seating position.
Greater use of aluminum helps the body shell of the C-Class elevate its overall rigidity, occupant protection and acousting qualities while reducing weight, even with a significant increase in cabin space. Along with high-strength and ultrahigh-strength steel, the front fenders, hood, doors, trunklid and roof panel are made of aluminum. Strategic reinforcements are made of diecast, extruded and stamped aluminum, as well as heat-treated steel and laser-welded, varying-thickness steel.
Rain-sensing windshield wipers automatically adjust the intermittent wiper frequency based on the amount of rainfall.
A Mercedes-Benz first, PRE-SAFE® can detect instability during certain vehicle maneuvers that suggest a collision or rollover is imminent. It can then tighten the front seat belts, adjust the front passenger seat, and close the windows and sunroof, all in an effort to better prepare the occupants and restraints in the moments before a collision. If no accident occurs, the seat-belt tensioners reverse, and you simply readjust your seat, open the sunroof and continue on your way.
Adaptive braking technology integrates a suite of advances. If you lift off the accelerator quickly, Predictive Brake Priming can set the pads closer to the discs for more immediate response when you apply the brakes. In the rain, Automatic Brake Drying can periodically apply the brakes just enough to sweep water build-up from the discs. During uphill starts, Hill-Start Assist can help prevent unwanted rollback. And a HOLD feature can make long red lights or stopped traffic a little easier.
