The all-new Mercedes C-Class, which took its visual and technological cues from Mercedes’ flagship S-Class, the new C-Class promises refinement and luxury unrivalled in this fiercely fought class. Looks count for a lot in the executive car park and the new Mercedes hits the spot. The C-Class has neatly styled lines, sculpted sides and swept-back headlamps which provide plenty of head-turning kerb appeal. Sport trim cars get 17-inch wheels, chrome treatment and LED lights.
The new C-Class is the first car to be built using Mercedes’ new rear-wheel drive architecture (MRA). This uses around 50 per cent aluminium in its construction, up from 10 per cent before and cuts 70kg from the body.The engine is a C250 BluTEC, which provides plenty of power and competitive claimed fuel economy figures.
