Mercedes-Benz has revealed the new C-Class Saloon and Estate variants ahead of the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.
The new C-Class doesn’t get the Sensual Purity design language, but some minor design tweaks which includes reworked bumpers, headlamps and tail lamps, and also new alloy wheels. Multibeam LED headlamps can be had as an option. Each headlamp incorporates 84 individually controllable LEDs.
The interiors doesn’t get the widescreen cockpit either, which we’ve seen in the new generation models. Nonetheless, it gets an optional fully digital instrument display with three individually selectable display styles. It also gets touch-sensitive controls on the steering wheel. The centre console can be had in open-pore brown walnut or open-pore anthracite oak. New interior colors include magma grey/black, plus saddle brown for the AMG line.
The operation of Distronic and cruise control with controls directly on the steering wheel is another new feature. Linguatronic voice control is present too.
Mercedes said that the new C-Class features the latest driving assistance systems, which includes ability to drive semi-autonomously in certain situations. Other systems include Active Lane Change Assist and Active Emergency Stop Assist.
Energizing comfort control can be had as an option. Further details will be available in March.
