Mercedes C-Class

The new Mercedes-Benz will be launched in spring and is a comprehensive modernisation. The front and sections of this best model have a more design. There is now a high-resolution display screen in the instrument an elegant new dashboard with surface and prominent decorative emphasising the premium character of the Fuel consumption has been by up to 31 per cent. Efficiency-enhancing measures new engines, the improved 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission and the ECO start/stop also feature. Ten new driving systems ranging from the ATTENTION ASSIST drowsiness system to the optional DISTRONIC proximity control system are now available for this model for the first time.

In terms of and protection systems the new-generation C-Class offers the same and safety as our luxury models. interior features remind one of the new CLS . the C-Class sets completely new in its segment with respect to value and quality, says Dr. Schmidt, Sales Marketing at Mercedes-Benz Cars. This modernisation is supplemented with a new generation that not only completely redesigned displays, but makes onboard internet available.

2012 Mercedes-Benz

A total of more than new components distinguish the latest of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class from its . Both the Saloon and Estate can be ordered from 10 January The European market launch take place from 2011. In addition to the standard — which now include a steering wheel — the two and equipment lines ELEGANCE and are the basis for the individualisation programme of the The two lines are now even more distinguishable from each

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is the highest-selling series for Mercedes-Benz. The current has found well over one buyers worldwide since its in March 2007. Since the of the first Mercedes-Benz C-Class in (then known as the model 190 ), has sold more than 8.5 vehicles in total in this In 2010 too, the C-Class has won top places in the registration statistics.

power, lower consumption: the

An improvement of up to 31 per cent has been in fuel consumption and all Mercedes-Benz launch models will the ECO start/stop function as standard. All the variants are now classed as BlueEFFICIENCY showing that they are efficient and environmentally compatible in use of fuel. In future all automatic will feature the further-developed PLUS seven-speed automatic In addition, the overall ratio of all new variants has been optimised for fuel economy.

All the petrol in the model series have injection. One of the highlights is the introduction of the new V6 engine with its innovative and efficient BlueDIRECT process in the C 350 The quantum leap in efficiency is well illustrated by the six-cylinder Power has increased considerably, the C 350 delivering 306 hp and 370 Nm (previously 292 hp and 365 Nm).

The petrol engines, which a great evolutionary leap in 2009 and all feature direct and turbocharging and excel with performance and exemplary economy.

The economical model in the Mercedes range has also become more frugal: the C 220 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY the manual six-speed transmission and the ECO start/stop function. This to 117 grams of CO2 per kilometre. In conjunction the improved 7G-TRONIC PLUS transmission and the ECO start/stop function as standard, the C 220 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY and C 250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY deliver top-class figures a combined diesel consumption of mpg. This corresponds to CO2 of 125 grams per kilometre.

Design: Dynamic, resolute,

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class greets 2011 having undergone a makeover. The front and tail-end of the million-seller are styled more the front being brought to the brand’s new design idiom. The bumper has a more expressive and contour, and supports the shape of the grille more prominently as the element at the front.

The central air opens out upwards in a V-shape, a visual base unit for the grille. Pronounced side extend from the sporty at the centre. Continuing beneath the these sections blend the feature lines along the flanks, forming a link the sides. The side air inlets in the are positioned low down, giving the car a road-hugging appearance.

Both the and the estate have been a new bonnet made of aluminium. Its in the area around the headlamps and the grille emphasises the V-shape of the end to a greater extent than

The shape of the clear-lens headlamps has modified to create a more and resolute impression, and to act together the bonnet, radiator grille and to give the Mercedes-Benz C-Class a new This impression is reinforced by the exterior form of the headlamps and the of the housings. The headlamps show modernity by precision and an interplay matt and high-gloss areas. The headlamps are arranged in the classic with low beam on the outside, beam on the inside and the indicators arranged in the outer corner with the front wing.

If the bi-xenon headlamps with the Light System (ILS) are the impression of depth is reinforced by a row of modules. A position light a distinctive C-shape emphasises the design. Behind it is a cornering extending to the main headlamp on the outside. A visual base in the section of the headlamp is formed by a broadband LED indicator unit. The LED daytime running lamps in the also make the Mercedes-Benz unmistakable from a distance.

In the of the rear bumper, the light-catching and dividing lines have modified to emphasise the width of the and estate even more This change is particularly in the more steeply rising of the side light-catching contours the tail lights. A continuous contour at the upper end of the rear extends into the flanks to the tail end with the sides to the sporty character of the rear

In the facelifted model, the tail are even more neatly into the tail end by a continuous lens. The characteristic surface is now on the inside of the light, and reminiscent of model series. The particular of depth is achieved by a centrally LED indicator, which appears to in front of the red upper and lower bands.

In all its finery: restyled and high-grade surfaces

One of the design main points of focus in the was on restyling the dashboard with the aim of a sporty, high-quality look. At the time the trim concept was enhanced. The touch surfaces of the are more finely detailed and With its stepped extension, the cluster’s panel now also the central display. The instrument and a discreet light-catching contour to the front-passenger side. The central, air vents and the round vents on the are highlighted in detail by galvanised

The large section of trim is an part of the newly designed This extends from the air vents across the front-passenger to the outer air vent and creates a wider look for the interior. The part of the dashboard with its new grain continues into the of the door panels.

The control of the new-generation communication and information has keys with high-gloss inserts. The combination of matt high-gloss areas and a new knurled design accentuates the higher value of the interior. Together the new telematics generation, the facelifted C-Class also comes with a new instrument cluster an integral display. Directed the driver are three tube-style with a galvanised surface, demonstrating the C-Class’s sporting

The premium character of the interior is by the new-generation steering wheel, was introduced with the new CLS and is now available in the AVANTGARDE line for the Mercedes-Benz The steering wheel with its central spoke stylishly the sporty atmosphere in the C‑Class.

Higher quality and more

Brimming with a wealth of details in the interior, all reminiscent of the new the Mercedes-Benz C-Class sets new in its segment when it comes to and comfort. The interior designers paid painstaking attention to the dashboard, whose new features its surface grain, the integral prominent trim and, as an a high-resolution colour display in the cluster. A nappa leather wheel comes as part of the specification. Time spent in the saloon and the estate is now even pleasant, thanks to the C-Class’s dimensional concept, along its new comfort-enhancing equipment and appointments as climatised seats and the luxury climate control THERMOTRONIC, now makes it possible for the occupants to their own individual climate

Generous: the interior dimensions and capacity

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is the most spacious vehicles in its The front shoulder room and the width amount to 1390 and millimetres respectively. In the rear, the and estate offer shoulder of 1398 millimetres and an elbow of 1462 millimetres.

And the Mercedes-Benz offers plenty of space for too: the saloon’s load is 475 litres (in accordance with the VDA method). For the saloon Mercedes-Benz a divided backrest which can be and easily folded forward on a 1:2 The head restraints move together with the backrests and do not to be removed first.

Variability is the of the game where the estate is its rear seat backrests are on a 1/3 to 2/3 ratio and can be folded forwards. The compartment capacity can be extended 485 or 690 litres when the vehicle is to roof height up to 1500 (when the rear seat are folded forward and the vehicle is to roof height). And there is yet peak value to note: the usable interior length from the tailgate to the front footwell — is 2.82

Thanks to a host of practical the Mercedes estate can be loaded conveniently and safely. For instance, two bag and four eyelets for anchoring are included in the load compartment as Stowage compartments with net and a collapsible shopping crate are part of the standard specification, as are the luggage cover and retaining The EASY-PACK tailgate opens and at the push of a button. Finally, the EASY-PACK load-securing kit presents with even more for securing the load being

Comfort on long journeys as the front seats

The seats in the C-Class make a valuable to comfort on long journeys. As an extra, climatised seats are now for the driver and front passenger. ensure a high degree of seating comfort thanks to electric fans in the upholstery of the and in the backrest which draw in air, then push it the perforated seat cover up to the As well as this ventilation the climatised seats also seat heating.

The height and angle of the front seats can be adjusted. Even more of operation is available as an optional in the form of fully electric of the driver’s and front-passenger seat. In with the Memory package settings can be stored.

The multicontour (available as an optional extra) has controllable air chambers under the material. They make it for the occupants to adapt the shape of the precisely to suit their or their preferences. This is all to inflatable air chambers underneath the material which enable the of the side bolsters to be individually Another attribute is the function for adjusting the seat cushion At the push of a button the seat length can be extended, allowing to relax their legs and good blood circulation.

and safe: the rear seats

The seat unit is of one-piece Three head restraints and inertia-reel seat belts the safety of the occupants. The outer seats are also equipped belt tensioners and belt limiters, as well as head adjustable for height and angle. the standardised attachment system for seats, is included as part of the specification.

Even more THERMOTRONIC now with climate

As part of the standard specification, all C-Class models include the THERMATIC automatic climate Yet more climate comfort is courtesy of the optional luxury climate control THERMOTRONIC, allows individual temperature for three zones — for the the front passenger and the rear What are known as the THERMOTRONIC’s modes constitute a new feature in the the car occupants can select Diffuse, or Focus settings at the push of a and thus adjust the air quantity and air to their liking without to leave the convenient automatic

In Diffuse mode, for example, the system operates with a low air and distributes the air over a wide so that there are fewer In Focus mode, meanwhile, the air in the centre area of the dashboard are for the most part, meeting the for a direct flow of a larger of air.

More operating better connectivity: new-generation

The new Mercedes-Benz C-Class also the debut of a new telematics generation will also be gradually in other model series. new features include greater convenience, larger displays, directory transfer, display of SMS wireless music reproduction via and a USB interface now accommodated in the centre

The multimedia system COMAND now provides internet access for the time (via the customers enabled mobile phone). the car is stationary, customers are able to freely or surf to a Mercedes-Benz service whose pages particularly rapidly and are also to use while on the move. The integrated include weather information and a destination search via Google, as as the option of downloading a route has been previously configured on a PC Google Maps and sent to the The navigation system of COMAND also has added functions.

new: routes covered can be and repeated later, specific destinations can be imported via an SD card and alternative routes can be displayed on the map, one of them a particularly variation.

As a first in the Mercedes-Benz the Becker® MAP PILOT makes a navigation function, which can be retrofitted, available for the entry-level 20 CD radio. Its advantages over solutions include integrated via the central controls and the Audio 20 a concealed location in the glove and updating via an internet portal.

and suspension: Agile handling and comfort

The AGILITY CONTROL which is standard equipment in the C-Class Saloon and Estate, perfectly with the dynamic It is based on an amplitude-dependent damping when driving normally low shock absorber stimulus, the forces are automatically reduced for a improvement in ride comfort but without any compromise in handling When shock absorber are of greater magnitude, for example cornering at speed or taking action, the maximum damping are set and the car is stabilised effectively.

The Mercedes-Benz AGILITY CONTROL suspension is by a rack-and-pinion steering system. the steering gear 80 millimetres in of the wheel centre makes for self-steering characteristics with a tendency to understeer. Speed-sensitive with variable steering-wheel and a variable steering ratio is as an optional extra.

Precise location: the front axle McPherson struts

Mercedes-Benz 2012

At the front a three-link construction with struts is used. The lower level consists of two separate which act as torque and cross and which are both forged aluminium. In addition to more wheel location, this has the particular advantage of compensating caused by tyre imbalances or brake forces better rigid wishbones.

The third in the three-link system is the track which connects the transversely steering gear with the The reinforced stabiliser is linked to the strut, which is also involved in front wheel

more agile: sports and Dynamic Handling package as an

In addition to the standard-specification AGILITY suspension, the C‑Class offers two options for adjusting the suspension’s in line with drivers’ preferences. As an optional extra a suspension can be selected — it has springs, shock absorbers tauter tuning, and stronger bars.

A Dynamic Handling is available as an alternative. It offers the two shift programs to choose Sport and Comfort. Within shift programs the shock are electrically adjusted on a continuously basis. Sensors monitor driving situation and send the they gather to an electronic unit. Depending on the current or operating condition the system the damping forces individually for wheel — with adjustment and fully automatically.

New light-alloy wheels for AVANTGARDE and

The saloon and estate both seven-spoke light-alloy wheels as of their standard specification, the AVANTGARDE and ELEGANCE lines are in newly styled twin-spoke Individuality comes courtesy of the range of light-alloy wheels around a dozen different in 16, 17 and 18 format. In place of the standard-fit 7.5 J x 17 the AVANTGARDE model can also be with a 7 J x 16 wheel — an alternative for customers who want to use of the consumption potential offered by a and narrower wheel/tyre combination.

helpers: the new assistance systems in the C-Class

Adaptive Highbeam When vehicles are detected of or approaching the vehicle, this automatically dips the beams and the range of the headlamps appropriate to the This means that beam can be used more

Active Lane Keeping The system kicks into if the Mercedes-Benz vehicle inadvertently over a solid line to the or left of a lane. In such a a warning sign in the instrument and vibration of the steering wheel the driver warning. If the driver not heed the warning in the case of the line, Active Lane Assist can use the ESP® to brake the wheels and thereby prevent the from crossing the solid The Lane Keeping Assist, warns but does not actively is available as a favourably-priced alternative.

Blind Spot Assist. It the driver when changing if a risk of collision is detected due to vehicle in the neighbouring lane in the blind spot of the exterior If the driver ignores the warning and initiates the lane-changing manoeuvre, the Blind Spot Assist By applying braking force to the on the opposite side of the vehicle, a yaw is created which counteracts the course. The Active Blind Assist was recently awarded the Angel prize for being a innovation by a jury of experts the ADAC, the German automobile and the biggest of its kind in the world. The alternative is the Blind Spot it warns the driver but does not intervene.

ATTENTION ASSISTwarns drivers it detects that they are Studies have shown around a quarter of all serious accidents are caused by drowsy making this factor an bigger cause of accidents drink-driving. With ATTENTION (standard for Elegance and Avantgarde), is therefore making another contribution towards helping to accidents: it employs high-resolution to observe driver behaviour and can whether the driver is tired or not attention, based primarily on wheel movements.

BRAKE PLUS: this system is to recognise an impending rear-end using radar sensors. It the necessary degree of braking and makes it available immediately the driver presses the brake

DISTRONIC PLUS: the radar-based control supports the driver at between zero and 200 km/h by adjusting the distance to the vehicles in In doing so it is able to apply the to bring the vehicle to a complete and also accelerate it again. As a the system is also particularly in stop-and-go traffic. If the system that the distance is being too quickly, it warns the driver both visual and acoustic The control system has also refined even further the inclusion of information from maps.

Speed Limit a camera fitted behind the detects speed limit at the roadside and compares this to information contained in the GPS system. The speed limit is then in the instrument cluster.

At the driver is given both an and an optical warning if the system that there is a danger of If the driver does not react to the system brakes the vehicle This occurs in two stages: 1.6 seconds before the calculated point the system decelerates the car around 40 percent (approx. m/s²) of the maximum braking gives the driver an additional, warning of the impending impact and as a activates the reversible PRE-SAFE® protection systems. If the driver fails to react, the PRE-SAFE® activates the maximum braking around 0.6 seconds before the now collision — this braking can greatly reduce the of the impact. The system therefore like an electronic crumple offering the car occupants even protection. The PRE-SAFE® Brake is at speeds of between 30 and 200 km/h moving vehicles are detected in of the car.
