“The C-Class Sedan has been the global market leader in its segment since 2008, so it is highly topical. But the comprehensive updating of our high-volume model also shows that even in the global economic crisis we have had the strength to invest in our product portfolio without making any compromises. For us the new-generation C-Class with more than 2000 new parts is a facelift – others would speak of a new car.”
The new C-Class comes in the following assorted trims
- C250 RWD
- C300 4MATIC
- C350 RWD
The 2012 C-Class exhibits a stylish exterior. The bumpers, hood and bi-xenon headlamps have been redesigned. The aluminum hood is made lightweight. The taillights are styled with LED indicators. The huge grille adds more elegance to the exterior. The 17″ Split 5-spoke alloy wheels are integrated stylishly into the sides of the body.
The interior is not only comfortable but also luxurious. The dashboard is styled with a sporty and premium look. The center console features matte keys, high-gloss surfaces and unique rectangular silver keys. The fine-grain finish and elegant trim elements adds to the interior. The 8-way power front seats with lumbar support are comfortable and your family can easily relax in the backseats.
Prof. Gorden Wagener, Head of Design, Mercedes-Benz Cars said,
“The new-generation C-Class also sets the pace in its segment when it comes to design. This is especially apparent in the interior: fine materials displaying painstaking attention to detail and the generous use of trim parts add an exclamation mark: the C-Class is dressed up to the nines.”
The new vehicle gives a powerful performance with its robust engine. Three choices of engines are available. The 1.8L Turbo I4 engine fitted in C250 RWD generates 201 HP of an output power. The 3.0L V6 engine of C300 4MATIC can deliver228 HP and 3.5L V6 engine of C350 RWD can give 302 HP of an output power. The 7-speed automatic transmission can give fastest acceleration and fuel efficiency has been enhanced upto 15percent.
Dr Thomas Weber, Member of the Daimler Board of Management responsible for Group Research and Head of Development, Mercedes-Benz Cars
“We are currently making greater leaps forward than ever before in the history of the car where efficiency is concerned. This becomes clear if you compare our compact top model from 1989, the 190E 2.5-16 Evo I, with the current C220 CDI. The performance is virtually identical, and in the space of just 20 years consumption has been halved, whilst comfort, safety and emission characteristics have drastically improved at the same time. And we are certainly keeping up this speed: we are inventing the car for the second time.”
