The new Mercedes C Class will be launched in the Spring 2011. The Mercedes C Class is the highest selling model for Mercedes Benz and the new model will have a more striking design.
Fuel consumption has been improved with new engines; the improved 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission and the ECO start/stop function also feature. Ten new driving assistance systems ranging from the standard ATTENTION ASSIST drowsiness detection system to the optional DISTRONIC PLUS proximity control system are also now available for this model series for the first time. All the engine variants are now classed as BlueEFFICIENCY units, showing that they are particularly efficient and environmentally compatible in their use of fuel
The interior modernisation includes a high-resolution colour display screen in the instrument cluster, an elegant new dashboard with grained surface and prominent decorative trim. The UK market launch of the Mercedes C Class Saloon and Estate versions will take place in March 2011.
