For 2016, Mercedes-Benz’s C-Class gains a new trim, the C450 AMG, and drops the C400 from the lineup. The new C450 AMG performance sedan is intended to take on the
Audi S4 and BMW 335i. Later in the year, a C-Class plug-in
hybrid will be introduced.
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.
About Mercedes-Benz C-Class
With the arrival of a new coupe and convertible, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class lineup is now complete. Along with the C-Class sedan, the 2-door twins usher in the new Mercedes-Benz design language, which is bolder and more muscular than any C-Class before it. Mercedes’ 2017 C-Class leaves nothing to be desired, combining power, handling and superb interior craftsmanship into a vehicle packed with cutting-edge technology and safety features. More aggressive-looking than the BMW 3 and 4 Series’ cars, the C-Class has the goods to take on the Cadillac ATS and Lexus IS and in AMG form, these same cars’ M, V and F-Sport trims. Although the C-Class is more expensive than some rivals, many feel the Mercedes-Benz name is worth the added premium.
