A Compact Bundle of Technology – Mercedes Benz C-Class

Mercedes Benz C-Class

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is a compact executive car produced by the Mercedes Car Group division of Daimler AG. First introduced in 1993 as a replacement for the 190 range, the C-Class was the most affordable model in the marque’s lineup, until the 1997 arrival of the A-Class. The C-Class is built at Mercedes-Benz factories in Sindelfingen and Bremen, Germany, as well as in DaimlerChrysler’s South African factory in East London. The very first W202 C-Class sedan was produced on June 1, 1993, and the second generation W203 C-Class rolled off the assembly line on July 18, 2000. The third generation W204 C-Class was launched in 2007.

The C-Class platform has been used for several coupes, including the CLC-Class (and its predecessor, the C-Class Sportcoupe) and CLK-Class.

The new C-Class gives you a new feel for the road

Experience the road like never before with the standard-fit AGILITY CONTROL package. The new C Class is a pleasure to behold: its taut lines lend it an air of effortless superiority while the wide radiator grille and distinctive rear section announce a vehicle with a dynamic personality. You’ll also find the interior offers notably more space – and, thanks to fine materials and a new design, a more distinctive atmosphere.

Transmission

* 6-speed manual transmission

The C-Class comes as standard with a 6-speed manual transmission, which makes gearshifts a sheer delight with their very short-throw action.

* 5-speed automatic transmission

How to shift gears faster? Let the car do it for you. The 5-speed automatic transmission is available for 4-cylinder models. It can judge people to perfection and adjusts – sporty or comfortable – to your personal driving style. To change up or down manually, you simply need to nudge the selector lever to the right or left.

* 7G-TRONIC 7-speed automatic transmission

The highlight of our transmission technology is standard in the C 230 Avantgarde: the 7G-TRONIC 7-speed automatic transmission. Seven forward gears constantly provide optimum engine speed and deliver virtually imperceptible gear changes. When changing down, the 7G-TRONIC – unlike other automatic transmissions – delivers extra-fast mid-range sprints by skipping individual gears. By simply nudging the selector lever, you can also shift gears manually.
