At the North American International Motor Show in Detroit, Mercedes-Benz exhibited two different styles of C-Class work out like two different identities, a classic- sophisticated look and a very sporty and more aggressive look. Overall the C-Class looks like the S-Class’s little brother. And its not just styling wise that the C-Class packs a lot of S. Many of the new safety, driver assistance and multimedia systems found on the S-Class are also available on the new C-Class. The interior is refreshing and with firsts for this segment like air suspension Daimler is clearly looking to set the new benchmark in this very competitive segment.
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is closer than ever to being a mini-E or mini-S-Class, and it's not just because of its latest growth spurt. The latest C has its most evocative styling ever, and an interior that's nothing short of beautiful.
The 2015 C-Class also is more powerful, lighter than before, and packaged at first with standard all-wheel drive.
Under the hood of the new 2015 C-Class, you'll find one of two engines. The C300 sports a 235-horsepower, 273-pound-foot 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. The C400 has a 329-horsepower, 354-pound-foot 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6. Both are turbocharged and direct-injected, and both team with a seven-speed automatic transmission. Mercedes fits its 4Matic all-wheel-drive system as standard for both versions for the 2015 model year, but more economy-minded and sporty variants with rear-wheel drive are to be expected.
The new C-Class drops 220 pounds, mostly from a lighter, stiffer body structure. That hasn't stunted its growth, though. The 2015 C-Class is 3.7 inches longer, 1.6 inches wider, and has 3.0 inches more wheelbase than the previous model.
On the more entertaining side of the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class's technology is the COMAND infotainment system, installed in either the standard 7-inch display or the optional 8.4-inch display offered as part of the Multimedia package. Mercedes' mbrace2 apps and connectivity technology is also baked into the COMAND system, with the option to have over twenty Mercedes Benz Apps integrated from the factory.
