2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class: The legend continues.
June 07 2018, Mercedes-Benz de Québec
Back in the early 1980s, Mercedes-Benz launched a car that was to revolutionize the luxury car market. The legendary 190 E, the C-Class’ predecessor, combined luxury, refinement and performance at a price point that made it accessible for many. The C-Class was born in the early 90s and to this day, is one of the carmaker’s best-selling nameplates. There are many good reasons for this car’s success.
For the performance.
The C 300 4MATIC starts at $44,700. It is powered by a standard turbocharged 241-horsepower and 273 lb.-ft. of torque .2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine. Included with it are Mercedes-Benz’s 4MATIC AWD and a 9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic transmission, both providing optimal driving technologies for efficiency and pleasure.
The Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC cars combine luxury, prestige and exhilarating driving characteristics on par with many compromised sporty cars. Its AMG-enhanced biturbo 3.0-litre V6 spawns 362 healthy horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque. With standard 4MATIC AWD and 9-speed automatic transmission, the C 43 is the perfect all-season getaway weekend car.
Part of the 190 E’s racing heritage has trickled into the Mercedes-AMG C 63 cars. The cars feature an AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed transmission and a handcrafted AMG 4.0-litre biturbo V8 with either 469-horsepower or for the S, 503-horsepower. Options include adaptive damping and ceramic brakes as part of the upgrade menu.
There’s never a dull moment behind the wheel of a Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
For luxury and design.
With only a few exceptions, your C-Class will conform to your personal needs where performance, design and body styles are concerned. Regardless of whether you’re considering an elegant sedan, an exquisite convertible, a sporty coupe or versatile station wagon, the 2018 C-Class has it all.
Every C-Class emanates refinement. They all feature the brand’s signature front graphic and distinctive elements that perpetuate elegance and prestige. AMG cars gain unique physical attributes that differentiate them from all the others. The cabins are luxuriously appointed with only the finest materials, latest technologies and safety features. Here too, Mercedes-AMG adds a little extra in the form of AMG performance seats and specific interior trim.
The legend of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class indeed continues.
