A large of galvanised trim extends the centre air vents across the passenger side to the outer air Mercedes having acted on from CLS owners highlighting appreciation of bold interior themes. The wheelbase of the C-Class the same as before, so don’t any more rear legroom. quality is markedly better, the bad old days of Mercedes interior now being consigned firmly to

Market and Model

SE is the new entry point to the revised for the C 180 BlueEFFICIENCY, C 200 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY and C 220 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY and Estate models. This a sports grille, new 16-inch wheels, Artico upholstery and LED running lights at virtually no increase over the previous SE A new Luxury Package is available for SE models to replace the former trim option.
