Excellent look with new headlamp and wheel design

The most easily-recognized change of the new C-Class is the lighting component design. The C 200 owns a new generation high-performance Full-LED headlamp with 2-level 3D design. The C 200 Exclusive & C 300 AMG feature the state-of-the-art MULTIBEAM LED headlamp. The C-shape distinctive torches of light inclines to the front as an exclusive design element. Each headlamp is fitted with 84 individual high-performance LED chips automatically adapted to traffic and weather conditions. Each LED is separately controlled in order to assure precise and efficient light range without dazzling other road users. The ULTRA RANGE main beams produce the maximum light intensity, equivalent to the value of 1 lux over a distance of more than 650 meters.

The rear lamp is redesigned with a C-shape LED line. The bumpers on the C 200 are retouched to highlight its dynamism, while the chrome details on the Exclusive makes impression of effortless luxury. Especially, the C 300 AMG is the magnet of all attention with the AMG line exterior plus the Night Package.

Wheel design is another competitive advantage of the C-Class compared to its competitors. Each variant owns eye-catching wheels. While the C 200 is equipped with the styled 17-inch 5 twin spoke alloy wheels in 2 colors, the C 200 Exclusive is fitted with 18-inch multi-spoke one. Remarkably, instead of 5 single spoke wheels, the C 300 AMG has sporty 19-inch 5 twin-spoke alloy wheels with Star shape.

The next level of turbocharged engine with EQ Boost

The next level of turbocharged engine with EQ Boost

A new generation of four-cylinder petrol engines is being launched in the new C-Class. At the same time these models are equipped with an additional 48 volt onboard network with a belt-driven starter/alternator (EQ Boost). The new petrol model will be launched as the C 200 and C 200 4MATIC with a displacement of 1.5 litres, with a 2.0-litre variant to follow later.

The combination of a 48 volt onboard network and EQ Boost creates the conditions for additional functions that help to reduce fuel consumption even further, while improving agility and comfort characteristics. When accelerating, EQ Boost can assist the 135 kW (184 hp) engine with an additional 10 kW (13,5 hp), bridging the brief moment until the turbocharger has built up its full charge pressure. This boosting is also used to reach the engine's ideal rpm as quickly as possible during gearshifts.

Other advantages include gliding mode with the engine switched off, and the recuperative brake with intelligent engine stop when the vehicle is coasting: recuperation only begins with overrun cut-off when braking. The shift time of the automatic transmission is shortened as a result. During deceleration, the starter/alternator recuperates kinetic energy and charges the battery. The water pump is electrically driven and actuated by a characteristic map. This optimally adapts the cooling output to the current need. The start/stop system operates particularly comfortably thanks to the belt-driven starter/alternator, as the engine restarts almost silently, with low vibrations and very rapidly.

By rotating the DYNAMIC SELECT control cluster, the driver will discover distinctly different personalities, including "Comfort", "ECO", "Sport", "Sport +" and "Individual" with the smart support from EQ Boost. All variants are matched with the automatic 9G-TRONIC transmission of Mercedes-Benz.

Besides the sporty look, the C 300 AMG is a truly “sporty athlete” with a powerful heart: the all-new M264 – I4 2.0L twin-scroll turbocharged engine producing up to 258 hp and 370 Nm of torque, pushing the sedan to reach 100 km/h within 5,9 seconds. In reality, the C 300 AMG shows a significant enhancement in the throttle responsiveness and instant rolling acceleration in compared to the pre-facelift. The maximum torque maintains in the wide range of 1.800 – 4.000 rpm making it easier for driver to accelerate. The 9G-TRONIC also supports quicker upshift/downshift with maximum adrenaline at “Sport+” using the paddle shift. The “back-fire” effect from the exhaust can be found at high rpm shifting.

The C 300 AMG comes with the DYNAMIC BODY CONTROL. The DYNAMIC BODY CONTROL suspension is equipped with continuous adjustable damping for the front and rear axle. The individual suspension setup can be determined in three stages via the DYNAMIC SELECT switch: the damping characteristics are tuned more tautly in the two "Sport" and "Sport+" modes. The "Comfort" mode is more comfortably tuned, unevenness is levelled out better and road roar and tire vibration characteristics are tangibly improved.

In conjunction with DYNAMIC BODY CONTROL the vehicle is equipped with a Sports Direct-Steer system. This combines a variable ratio dependent on the steering angle for highly precise, agile reactions, with speed-dependent electromechanical power assistance for pleasantly smooth handling.

From exterior to interior, from engine to driving experience, the C 300 AMG is so valuable for the money and customers don’t need to further spend to complete the car.
