Originally introduced in 2015, the existing Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan underwent a mid-life cycle facelift for its 2019 model year in the form of new driver assists and increased power. Scheduled to debut at the Geneva Motor Show this year, this revamped C-class is featuring redesigned rear and front bumpers, and this now comes equipped with LED tail lamps and headlamps defined by the clear-lined contours being standard. All in all, the changes in styling are subtle while still making the C-Class appearing more refined beside its bigger S-Class sibling.
The latest Emerald Green Metallic and Mojave Silver Metallic are currently available together with the 17-inch twin 5-spoke wheels for its base model. Inside, you will notice that things stayed the same aside from the addition of the new steering wheel complete with touch control. The significant changes, however, are on its technology front.
The standard 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class includes keyless ignition with push-button for the start button, which features the new turbine-look design, wood trim, power-retractable sunroof, automatic braking, and 7” infotainment system. If you like to add more luxuries, you may also consider 12.3” digital instrument cluster from S-Class.
Some options are 10.25” infotainment system, heated seats run by voice control, panoramic sunroof, head-up display, Burmester Premium for sound system, and NFC wireless charging. On technology front, updated C-Class may be equipped with the newest driver assists that are available in E-Class. In particular situations, it enables C-Class to drive in a semi-autonomous way with the use of radar systems and improved camera, which monitors traffic situation up to 1640 ft ahead.
The 2.0L unit produces fourteen more horsepower than its outgoing model, which brings its power output to 255 horsepower and 273 pound-foot of torque. Diesel, gasoline, and the plug-in hybrid variants will be available in Europe.
