Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Auto Nation Group (ANG) continues to move forward with its sustainable mobility thrust by bringing in the 5th-generation C-Class to the local market.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What powers the all-new Mercedes-Benz C-Class?

    The latest offering is powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine with Integrated Starter Generator and 48-volt power supply.
  • How much is the all-new Mercedes-Benz C-Class?

    The premium compact sedan has an introductory price of P3.89 million.
  • Touted as the “Baby S,” the luxury compact sedan’s newest version carries the latest technologies and styling elements that are found on the flagship S-Class.

    “The C-Class has raised the bar of the luxury compact executive sedans. It’s where Modern Luxury meets driving dynamics, human-centered innovations, and all that in a good looking form that you would fall in love with, once again,’’ ANG Chief Operating Officer Frankie Ang said.

    The newly revealed model is powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine that has a maximum churn of 170hp and 250Nm of torque and an electrified drivetrain with EQ boost mild-hybrid technology. The system is similar to the one seen in the S-Class, which was introduced early last quarter of 2021.

    The Integrated Starter Generator and 48-volt power supply is capable of providing an additional 20hp and 200Nm more torque. The rear-wheel-drive model's engine is matched to a 9G-Tronic automatic transmission that guarantees smooth gear shifts, reduced fuel consumption, and quiet running engine.

    Compared to its predecessor, the all-new Mercedes-Benz C-Class is 65mm longer, 45mm wider with its ground clearance higher by 7mm and wheelbase longer by 25mm, which contributes to a roomy cabin and improved driving dynamics.

    Further, the all-new Mercedes-Benz C-Class is fitted with a redesigned front bumper with a single-louver grille that accentuates the prominent three-pointed star logo. It complements the updated headlight (with daytime running lights) housings and the pronounced powerdomes on the bonnet.

    The vehicle sits on 18-inch multi-spoke light-alloy wheels that are on run-flat tires.

    The all-new Mercedes Benz C-Class’ rear end resembles that of the E- and S-Class as the former is designed with two-section tail lamps.

    Inside the cabin, occupants are set to enjoy more luxuries that are also found on the S-Class. It comes with a generous leg- and headroom, front seats that have memory function settings (for up to three people) and four-way lumbar support to improve comfort and ergonomics.

    Moreover, the all-new Mercedes-Benz C-Class has 64-color ambient lighting as well as Thermatic dual-zone automatic climate control with activated charcoal filter.

    The cockpit is equipped with a 11.9-inch floating central display touchscreen (with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability) and a 10.25-inch free-standing full digital instrument display

    The car comes with the latest-generation NTG7 MBUX multimedia system that can be operated via the “Hey Mercedes” voice command system or through the multifunction steering wheel via touch control buttons.
