The new Mercedes-Benz C-Class is electrified throughout thanks to plug-in hybrids and mild hybrids with 48-volt technology and an integrated starter-generator. Other technical refinements include optional features such as DIGITAL LIGHT and rear-axle steering. The Sedan and Estate can now be ordered at prices from €41,138.30 and €46,975.25 and will be in showrooms in summer 2021. Fourth-generation plug-in hybrids will follow soon after the launch. The Mercedes-Benz Bank Group offers individual financing and leasing packages for private and commercial customers. At an effective annual interest rate starting from 1.99%, customers can obtain low-interest financing for the new C-Class. The C 220 d Estate (combined fuel consumption 5.3-5.0 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions 140-133 g/km) including the Start package can be leased by commercial customers from €599 for example.
The C-Class already shows its dynamic proportions at standstill, thanks to the combination of a short front overhang, long wheelbase, and rear overhang. The preceding model was already a great step forward in terms of a high-value appeal in the interior, and the new C-Class goes even further with respect to modern luxury. The interior adopts highlights from the new S-Class, adding a sporty touch.
The most important optional features at a glance:
- The new C-Class is especially agile with the rear-axle steering and the accompanying, more direct steering ratio at the front axle. The steering angle at the rear axle is 2.5 degrees. This reduces the turning circle by 43 centimeters to 10.64 meters.
- DIGITAL LIGHT is available as an alternative to the standard LED High-Performance headlamps. This revolutionary headlamp technology has a light module with three extremely powerful LEDs in each headlamp, whose light is refracted and directed by 1.3 million micro-mirrors. DIGITAL LIGHT is also available with a projection function on request. This system can make driving safer by projecting guidelines, symbols and animations onto the road. DIGITAL LIGHT projection functions are also available from the Mercedes-Benz Shop as on-demand equipment.
- The infotainment system MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) is standard equipment. The display screens are available in a larger size if required. At extra cost, the central display with touch control, which is slightly inclined towards the driver, is also available with a screen diagonal of 2 cm/11.9 inches (instead of 24 cm/9.5 inches). In combination with this, the driver display is available as a 31.2 cm/12.3-inch variant (standard size: 26 cm/10.25 inches).
- The Driving Assistance Package can provide more safety in critical situations. Its component parts: Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC, Active Speed Limit Assist, Active Stop-and-Go Assist, Active Steering Assist, Active Lane Changing Assist, Active Blind Spot Assist, and PRE-SAFE PLUS. The Driving Assistance Plus Package is also available for the C-Class for the first time and has PRE-SAFE Impulse Side in addition.
