  • MODEL HISTORY

    Model History

     

    When it was introduced in 1993, the Mercedes C-Class was heralded as the “Baby Benz”. The idea was to create a miniaturized version of the brand’s flagship, something everyone could afford. Fast forward several generations, and the W205 Mercedes C-Class still lives up to that designation with luxurious appointments and a striking style that very much resembles the more expensive Mercedes Big.

     

    While the W205 Mercedes C-Class is both wider and longer than the previous generation, it manages to be 100 kg lighter, thanks to an aluminium-intensive body structure. There’s a new 4-link front suspension to improve steering response and a self-adjusting air suspension (AIRMATIC in Mercedes parlance) which makes the W205 the only compact executive saloon with such a feature. In addition, a range of efficient diesel engines are available with 115 bhp – 204 bhp. The petrol engines range from 156 bhp – 333 bhp. You can find a C-Class Hybrid and a C-Class Plug-in Hybrid as well.

     

    If you crave excitement, the W205 Mercedes C63 AMG comes with a 476 bhp twin-turbo V8, and it can hurl you to 100 kph in just 4.1 seconds. Upgrade to the 510 bhp C63 AMG S, and you’ll be up to 100 in 4 seconds flat. An AWD version is also available, but it (C 450 AMG 4MATIC) uses a less powerful twin-turbo V6 (367 bhp). In this model, reaching 100 kph will take 5.0 seconds. But frankly, that’s fast enough for most people.

     

    As you fling your W205 C-Class into a bend, you’ll want to know that you’re protected. To that end, Mercedes gave the new Baby Benz lots of standard safety kit, including Collision Prevention Assist Plus, which uses sophisticated radar sensors to scan the road in front and behind the C-Class. If you’re closing in on an obstacle too quickly, an alarm will sound and the car will apply partial braking force to reduce the severity of the crash or maximize brake force when you hit the brakes. If a rear impact is detected, the W205 C-Class will apply its own brakes if it’s stationary, tighten the seatbelts, and rapidly flash the rear signal lights to warn the approaching driver.

     

    The cabin of the W205 Mercedes C-Class is just as innovative as its safety tech. There’s a dramatically sweeping centre console, anchored by a touch pad controller for the Mercedes Command System. Options include a climate control system that uses GPS to locate the sun, so it can pump more air to that side of the car to offset the heat. And of course, a wide array of sumptuous woods and upholstery choices were available.
