Is it possible to have an efficient, comfortable and environmentally friendly sedan at the same time? The answer is yes, and it comes from Mercedes with the new C-Class, a car that is even more digital and in step with radical changes worldwide.
The new German jewel is a hope in the market of the future. Thanks to the traction mild hybrid 48 volt, the integrated starter-alternator and plug-in hybrid technology, the C-Class is the brand’s first range to be fully electrified. The company’s most successful series is powered by a highly efficient battery system, which gives the vehicle an electric range of nearly 100 kilometers (WLTP). A real revolution for the category.
After redefining the concept of luxury with the new Maybach S-Class, Mercedes has made its way decisively in the landscape of sustainable mobility. There will be two versions of the C-Class available, Berlina e Station Wagon, six other versions will arrive in Italy (Business, Sport, Premium, Sport Plus, Premium Plus and Premium Pro). Expected in dealerships as early as the second quarter of 2021, the new car in the German fleet can be ordered from March 30th. The exterior design of the C-Class communicates dynamic proportions from a standstill, a momentum emphasized by the engine hood and the windshield and passenger compartment moved to the rear. The lateral lines have been reduced to a minimum in order to enhance those of the shoulder as much as possible.
The front of the car is typical of the Mercedes brand, with the radiator grille that highlights the German signature. In the basic model there is a central star with slats, while in the aesthetics of the Avantgarde variant the slats are enriched with decorative elements and the radiator grille is embellished with a chrome frame. In the Station Wagon, the roof design combined with the sloping rear window it accentuates its sportiness without limiting functionality.
The new C-Class, like other Mercedes-Benz products, will also adopt the second generation of MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience). Advances in both hardware and software development make the cockpit still more digital and intelligent, with LCD screens that facilitate the control of the Comfort functions and a more comfortable driving of the car.
The instrument panel is divided into two parts, one upper and one lower, with an airfoil with new flattened round vents reminiscent of aircraft turbines. The orientation is towards the driver and communicates sportiness, dashboard and center display are turned six degrees towards the steering wheel. Upholstered in leatherette, combined with the standard nappa-effect beltline with the AMG line interior, the dashboard boasts just one example of the various innovative decorative elements found in the passenger compartment.
The biggest eye-catcher, then, is in the driver’s LCD display. High resolution and touchscreen, the screen appears to be suspended in front of the airfoil and the plane of the decorative elements. In the versions for Italy the stock screen will be 12.3 inches. A breath of fresh air for the C-Class range, which has always been one of the best-selling cars of the Casa della Stella. A search for novelty that goes hand in hand with attention to the environment.
