All-new for 2015, the C-Class sedan loses as much as 220 pounds despite growing 3.7 inches longer (in sedan form). Fuel economy increases about 20 percent as well, and a thorough interior and exterior restyling lends the lineup a slick new look.
Changes for the 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class include the addition of 18-inch wheels to the C350 and a standard split-folding rear seat on all models. The sport-oriented C63 AMG receives a new Edition 507 package that bumps output to 507 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque.
New for 2013 is the C300 4Matic's 3.5-liter direct-injection V6 that bumps output to 248 horsepower. A fuel-saving ECO start/stop feature is added to the C350 and C300 4Matic, while Distronic Plus becomes a stand-alone option. Mbrace2 internet and app connectivity is made standard on all trims.
2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class coupe is a whole new visual twist on the automaker's entry-level U.S. sales star, as well as their first traditional coupe in this competitive luxury-minded market segment.
Now that Mercedes-Benz’s CLA handles entry-level duties for the triple-pointed star, the 2015 C-Class grows closer to its upscale stablemates and more competitive against the likes of the
Audi A4, BMW 3-series, and
Lexus IS. Larger, lighter and posher than its predecessor, the all-new
2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Classsedan lineup makes a more compelling case for itself than ever in this competitive segment. Though it never was – and might never be – the choice for weekend autocrossers, the C-Class has matured into a big
luxury car trapped in a compact-car body. Launching the latest-gen C-Class is a sedan lineup consisting of the C300, C400 and performance-oriented AMG C63 and AMG C63 S models.
Coupe versions are still available but await their own metamorphosis.
