More on the New Mercedes-Benz C-Class
The initial media frenzy is over and it appears Mercedes-Benz’s media site is back up and running. We now get to learn about what will power the all-new C-Class when it arrives late this summer…the exact same engines that power the current C-Class. The V-6 engines will be matched to a six-speed manual or new optional seven-speed automatic transmission and will get better mileage with a slight bump in power.
The C230 will see an increase of 3 horsepower up to 204 hp, the C 280 moves up to 231 hp and the top-of-the-line C350 will produce 272 hp up from 268 hp. More significantly, the new C Class has an entirely new suspension system and various standard safety features. The paint even sports nano-technology to make the new C-Class more scratch resistant.
We also have a lot more photos below including the Sport sedan and its different grille and multiple shots of the interior.
