The current C-Class has a decidedly assertive demeanour – and it’s not by chance. Behind its prominent grille, underneath its sculpted bonnet, lies a spirited engine that begs for the open road. Athletic lines underpin its elegant form and subtly allude to its powerful precision. A sense of nimble sturdiness is prevalent throughout the design.

Tense lines, reminiscent of a coupé’s design, give the C-Class an unmistakably edgy feel. Luxury with a dash of exhilaration, the alternating play of lines and complementary surfaces across the exterior accentuate its adaptability and performance. To add your own touch, individualise your model through one of three lines: AVANTGARDE, EXCLUSIVE, and AMG Line. 

The C-Class’s arresting interior is defined by its timeless, flowing design, spacious cabin and premium finishes. A contemporary classic, the attention to detail is evident in every seam, button and trim. It is sporty, yet refined. Despite compact proportions, the C-Class feels roomy and easily accommodates five passengers in comfort. With a variety of optional equipment available, it easily goes from impressive to outstanding.

Leading by example isn’t always easy – unless you’re looking at the C-Class. The latest model sports technology that seems to have taken cues from science-fiction – except it is all real and at your fingertips. The redesigned one-piece centre console houses the intuitive COMAND Controller, which works in unison with the crisp centre display to access the full suite of technological offerings.   

With a five-star Euro NCAP rating you’d think there wasn’t need to add more, but then you’d be missing out on so much. ATTENTION ASSIST alerts you if it senses you’re getting too relaxed to be behind the wheel. And features such as the Driving Assistance package Plus, which includes DISTRONIC PLUS with Steering Assist, ensures the road is safer for all.
