Mercedes-Benz Unveils Updated C-Class Ahead Of Geneva Debut

For example, its multifunctional steering wheel is derived from the S-Class while its front seats incorporate comfort features from its more luxurious siblings, including seat climate control, multi-contour features and a massage function.

Ciaran Allen, sales manager for Mercedes-Benz passenger cars in Ireland said that with the new A-Class, Mercedes-Benz is set once again to raise the bar in the compact segment.

2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Facelift scheduled to surface at Geneva Motor Show. Unfortunately, the new MBUX infotainment system won't be making an appearance in the C-Class. Freshening it up will be critical at a time when more and more buyers are shifting from passenger cars to SUVs and CUVs.

From a visual standpoint, there are new bumpers, revised front and rear lighting - including Mercedes' Multibeam LED headlamps and Ultra Range high beams - and other minor tweaks.

The upgrade of the C-Class will garner attention as it is the automaker's best-selling vehicle at more than 400,000 units.

It feels like yesterday since we got the Mercedes Benz C-Class but auto is already due for a midcycle update.

The C-Class as the older model Mercedes, got a semi-automatic control. The standard display is 7.0 inches, but owners can opt for a larger 10.25-inch display, neither of which are touch-capable.

Surprisingly, neither is touch-sensitive.

Two new exclusive colour combinations are offered in the interior: Armagnac brown/black and savanna beige/black.

In the meantime, the vehicle will be revealed in full at the Geneva motor show next month.

"This applies to the entire G-Class model series".

Mercedes-Benz has lifted the covers off its all-new A-Class, latest in a generation of cars that the German manufacturer believes will redefine modern luxury in the compact class.

The G-Wagon's offroad ability also becomes stringer with the new multiplate clutch AWD system that AMG says behaves like an automatically controlled locking differential.

Advanced safety systems include see-ahead camera and radar with up to 500 metres range plus many "active" features now common in Mercedes-Benz models, including Lane Keeping, Adaptive Braking, and various Distance Control and Driver Assist systems. The C-Class is now offered with five different powertrains (not including the 43 and 63AMG) ranging from the C200 (135kW/300Nm) to the C350e (155kW/350Nm) hybrid. That allows a driver to briefly take hands off the wheel on many well-marked limited access roadways.
